Fantail on Stripes - 6 Christmas Gift Bags
Of course, we can’t choose a favourite but this one is a bit special. Emily Moffitt took a classic black and white stripe fabric and added a pop of colour with yellow kowhai and a dash of Kiwiana with our gorgeous piwakawaka (fantail).
The yellow ribbon enhances the timeless, and ageless style of these gift bags.
This fabric was designed by young Taranaki artist, Emily Moffitt, exclusively for Waste Free Celebrations and we know you’ll LOVE it.
This design is great for Christmas but you can also use it for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day etc!
You can also buy this fabric in our Sew Your Own range if you would prefer to make your own bags.
Reusability and the environment
After researching plastic, paper, and fabric’s impact on the environment it was obvious that the best impact you can make is to reuse products for a long, long time. See our blog The Perils of Paper for statistics and research.
You’ll love cotton gift bags because of their long life. Get your whole extended family to buy a set so whenever you exchange gifts, they circulate back and forth between you all. Goodbye, endless consumption and goodbye single-use wrapping paper and tape!
Buy these bags and reuse them for decades!
