2011 has been a hard year. Global Revolution! Natural disasters! Bankruptcy! What's next? We're not hedging bets for 2012 just yet, but in case things don't turn out the way you'd expected, we've got you covered. Core77's Ultimate Gift Guide has everything you need to get through these hard times and survive through the... end times?
Today's pick is from Allan Chochinov: Allan Chochinov is the editor in chief of Core77 and Chair of the new MFA in Products of Design graduate program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
What's better than a family friendly project that is also a survival essential? The paracord is essentially long lengths of nylon rope macrame'd into a belt, bracelet or necklace—think 8 feet of cord woven into 8 inches of compactness. Prepping for the year ahead, we say kumbaya. Start with a bracelet, watchband or belt. (That belt weaves up 100 feet of cord!)
