A part of sustainable thinking is looking for ways to extend the life cycle of material objects. So unlike wrapping paper, these screenprinted gift wraps can be used again and again (and again). I printed, hemmed and packaged them, and you can find them in store here
The project was inspired by Furoshiki – traditional Japanese cloth used to wrap various objects. My aim was to design and print something that was both functional and more sustainable, so reusable gift wraps were ideal! The fabric was deadstock from a local market, and after printing cut down to convenient sizes. The hems are done with contrast stitching to be complimentary to the print, and the product packaging is made out of old testprints.
The pattern was printed with eco-friendly ink on long strokes of fabric that were later cut down to size, so every wrap is unique! The three colorways are named after seasons (fall, winter and summer).
