Environmentally friendly gift wrapping in vintage silk scarf

Regular price £5.00 Sale

Take your gift to another level by having it wrapped in a one-of-a-kind vintage scarf.

Based on the art of furoshiki - the the traditional Japanese art of wrapping everyday items, we use beautiful vintage scarves as environmentally friendly gift wrapping. 

Your wrapping becomes a gift in itself! It can be worn, or used as wrapping for another gift, passing on the tradition of using sustainable gift wrap.

Furoshiki is the perfect alternative to single-use paper gift wrapping which is often unrecyclable thanks to the foil or plastic embedded within it, or the plastic tape used to secure the wrapping. 

The scarf will be wrapped around your item, using a loose knot to secure it - no tape, string or adhesive is used and it can easily be unwrapped by untying the knot.

It makes the perfect wrap for any College Green item you're buying as a gift, and are particularly suited to our range of gift boxes.

Please note: the scarves I use are often vintage, and many are pre loved. Therefore they may have some minor imperfections. This won't prevent them being used as scarves, or re-used as furoshiki wrapping. Most are silk, some are other materials. 

As the College Green scarves are all unique it's not possible to choose the design and may not be featured in the photos here, but rest assured, each one is gorgeous and will enhance your gift! 

To ensure your gift is wrapped you'll need to add the gift wrapping separately. 

Separate gift wrapping will be needed if you buy more than one gift box. If you order several small items we'll wrap them all.

I'm happy to accommodate special requests - please phone 07787 161911 or email rachaellythgoe@icloud.com to discuss.
