Eco friendly gift wrap inspiration

I pulled out my box of vintage silk scarves this weekend to see if I could find a new use for them and an inspirational idea came to me with Christmas and gifts in mind. Why not use them as gift wrap - it worked a treat. So give it a go, rid yourself of the guilt of gift wrapping excess, throw-away all packaging and wrap your gifts in gorgeous vintage silk squares as a stylish alternative to paper wrapping.

Scour charity shops and market stalls for luxurious silk head scarves and apply the ancient and time-honored art of furoshiki wrapping to this year's gifts. The time and thought you've put into your gift won't go unnoticed and they'll be the most luxurious and eco chic gifts under the replantable tree!

It's a neat idea to remember when it comes to wrapping your wedding favours or gifts to friends and family on the occasion of your eco friendly wedding.

Did you know?
We use more than 8,000 tonnes of wrapping paper each year in the UK alone - the equivalent of approximately 50,000 trees.
