Wrapping Ideas

We have a huge selection of cords, string and twines which make wonderful additions to any wrapping designs. We particularly love using Organic Cotton Baker's Twine to finish off natural brown paper gift wrapping as it is completely bio-degradable and natural, making it environmentally friendly! If you would rather we do the hard work, we also offer Gift Wrapping for £5 across lots of our gift products, using natural products and finished with our famous Arthur Beale archive stamp. 

If you have the time, why not learn some new knot work skills in the process and add these to your rope work or ribbon when wrapping! We love J.D Lenzen's Decorative Fusion Knots book or Des Pawsons Knot Craft and Rope Mats. You could even make a rope gift in the process!
