ReTh!nk ReWraps provide sustainable and beautiful ways of wrapping gifts, designed to be reused over and over again. Each ReWrap has been carefully designed and handmade by Kirsty Máté, a sustainable designer and artist in Launceston, to suit the Japanese ‘furoshiki’ method of wrapping and to engage the giver and the receiver of the gift in the experience of wrapping and unwrapping.
Heirloom ReWrap, a finalist in 2019 Tasmanian Design Awards, is hand silkscreen printed onto organic cotton using organically safe (GOTS) inks. The pattern provides the opportunity to mark the wrap through drawing, writing, stitching… in the blank or ‘open’ leaves of the design, recording and celebrating each gift-giving occasion between family, close friends, couples or for a special individual – creating an ‘heirloom’ commemorating these happy occasions. Once ‘complete’ the ReWrap can be framed, made into a cushion… or just kept circulating as gift-wrap.
