The Fabric Wrapping Co. creates gorgeous reusable fabric gift wrap and bottle bags. Available in Furoshiki-style wraps, with added ribbons or luxury gift bags.
Our products are handmade in London, except for our linen range.
The founders are Margot Jansen & Natasja Gilchrist, friends and former flatmates with a love of colour, beautiful interiors, fabric and art.
Why we do this
We’re givers! We love to delight friends and family with gorgeous, thoughtful gifts. Preferably when they least expect it. I once spontaneously gave Margot a shoe rack. Ok, it wasn’t beautiful, but it was thoughtful.
We love to give. But we also hate waste. And after one particularly last-minute Christmas, we were strolling around an art fair and got talking about how we could create a more sustainable way of giving. It turns out that several cultures got there before us. Centuries before us. So we started with the Japanese tradition of Furoshiki, the Korean tradition of Bojagi, a ton of research and experimentation and came up with our take on reusable fabric wrap. And then Margot added tassels. And pom poms. And hot pink ribbon! Our friends and family testers went wild.
Learning that in the UK we use the equivalent of 50,000 trees in wrapping paper at Christmas alone is all the fuel we need to keep challenging the way things are done and working to inspire people to do things better. Including ourselves.
Giving is an act of love. And we believe every element of giving should show you care. Even what, for most, is the very last thing they think of, the wrapping.
Our goal (to start) is to save one in five of all the trees wasted in paper gift wrap at Christmas. 10,000 trees, still breathing.
Inspiring more people to give beautifully, creatively and with less waste.
