REUSABLE GIFT WRAP
Every year, Australians throw away around 350,000 km of wrapping paper. Why not opt to use reusable wrap this festive season which can form part of your gift for friends and loved ones. With a large range of festive and decorative designs printed on 100 percent cotton, the reusable wrap is designed to make use of traditional Japanese wrapping styles, where knots and bows are tied in the fabric to wrap the gift.
