The holiday season all wrapped up, Jakarta style

Hello there! With the holiday season drawing increasingly near, we know you are busy, so this week we’re keeping it brief with a simple holiday gift wrapping idea.

I’m the worst gift wrapper in my household … paper, tape and neat corners are not my forte, so I often turn to beautiful fabric to get the job done. I love that you can use a simple square of fabric or even an off-cut to wrap just about anything. Using fabric to wrap gifts is a particularly good method, for oddly-shaped gifts, and the fabric that you have used becomes a part of the gift. Bonus!

So as an alternative to paper wrapping this year, why not try fabric!

The holiday season all wrapped up

Sejauh Mata Memandang handmade multi-funtional cloth comes in a range of beautiful colours. Fabric is a sustainable alternative to traditional wrapping paper.
Wrapped inside this fabric is a pot of local jam from Beau, all tied up with a bow sourced from Pasar Mayestik. Fabric by Sejauh Mata Memandang and sourced at the Good Things in Life Co.
Why not use a tea towel to wrap a gift and you have two gifts in one! Tea towel by Kamilinen from the Good Things in Life Co. and grosgrain ribbon sourced at Pasar Mayestik.
A simple fold and a knot and you’re ready to go! Avoiding waste and truly personalising your gift.
