FabRap makes fabric gift wrapping that stands the test of time. Inspired by Indian textiles and the traditional Japanese art of Furoshiki, these fabric gift wraps combine timeless elegance, sustainability and ease of use.
Designer Hema Kumar always found gift wrapping to be very rewarding. So much so, in fact, that she was her family’s designated wrapper each festive season. For her, wrapping gifts beautifully is a way to increase their meaning and value.
Being of Indian origin, she grew up surrounded by luxurious textiles and was always fascinated by the immense array of colours, fabrics and designs she would find during visits to India.
FabRap shares Hema’s passion for textiles and gift wrapping through high quality, 100% organic cotton wrapping fabric made under fair labour conditions in India. Refined prints meet contemporary hues, luxurious feel meets convenience and affordability.
Affordable Luxury & Zero Waste
Our premium high quality 100% organic fabrics add to the value of every gift given while looking after our precious resources at the same time. We have chosen to use cotton ‘cambric’ fabric which is slightly heavier and less sheer than voile, but still has a lovely softness due to the way it is woven. Soft, yet durable enough to stand the test of time so that our FabRaps can be handed from recipient to recipient for years to come.
During the Christmas season alone, millions of tonnes of wrapping paper ends up in landfills as the majority of it cannot be recycled due to the use of dyes and plastic laminations. FabRap offers a beautiful and sustainable alternative which is reusable and repurposable.
FabRaps not only give your gift beauty with ease, but they also give you and the recipient a clear conscience. Everyone loves that almost ceremonial feeling of excitement whilst opening a wonderfully wrapped gift, but nobody savours the guilty feeling after having thrown the wrapping paper into the trash.
Environmental considerations aside, FabRap transforms a gift’s wrapping into an object of value in itself that can be passed on for another special occasion or repurposed. One of the most enticing things about FabRap, is that it makes wrapping any object with rounded or unusual shapes a breeze. No more need for sticky tape or scissors! Simply choose your favourite FabRap to use and follow our easy to use instructions and videos.
