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.

New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
