Eco-Chic! Fabric Gift Wrap By Chewing the Cud

A sweet idea that’s good for the environment and super chic! Reusable fabric gift wraps, by Chewing the Cud, are coming in June. Measuring 28″ x28″, these hand-printed creations are printed with soy-based ink on organic cotton. They’ll be a beautiful way to dress up any present. Chewing the Cud – "I've always believed that the gift presentation should be as thoughtful as the gift itself. The inspiration came from the Japanese furoshiki, a traditional wrapping cloth used to transport clothing, food and gifts. We infused meaning into each style with graphics that speaks to the idea of giving. The "Give Luck" wrap is designed with symbols of good luck, such as the 4-leaved clover and elephants. In another style, tree illustrations become the metaphor for giving wisdom–the perfect choice for wrapping books. Beyond the graphics, these gift-wraps are a wonderful option for wrapping odd-shaped gifts and an eco-friendly alternative to conventional wrapping paper." (If anything, it’s a great idea to try out yourself!) Also check out their sweet cards! Chewing the Cud website {Via Style Me Pretty}
