Yesterday, I got a small cardboard box from India with some geared DC motors I’d like to experiment with. It came wrapped in this:
Quite sturdy and hard to remove, in fact. Note also the text on the declaration for customs: “Parts” – heh, yeah, that’s all they need to know :)
And it’s… hand-stitched!
Amazing. I now have this mental picture of someone with needle and thread, sitting in lotus position in the shipping department, in charge of wrapping up all the outgoing packages :)
I find these small glimpses of the cultural richness on our planet one of the most thrilling aspects of doing business these days. Long live human diversity!
