Fabric wrapping is an old asian tradition that can transform a gift into an exceptional keepsake. This set of 6 eco-chic wraps are handcrafted from recycled Indian saris.
There are multiple tape-free ways to wrap with these 90 cm squares. For a basic wrap, open fabric in diamond shape on flat surface, place gift in centre and tie opposite sides in double knots. The fabric will conform tightly as the knots form a bow. The recycled nature of this product means no two squares are alike, and the beautiful designs printed on the old saris may even inspire you to use them as inexpensive scarves or bandanas.
The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.
I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia. New Internationalist is about the only remaining forum of journalistic integrity and genuine humanity that is commonly available in Australia. I'm also very impressed with your New Internationalist shop. The products are fantastic and speak of the quality and dedication of their manufacturers. The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.

People these days almost crave information that helps them to make sense of the world, and the New Internationalist magazine does that brilliantly.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
