Discover the World of Hand-Crafted Gift Wrap.
Born from a love of thrifting, crafts and hoarding, Handmade and Heritage is the creation of Designer Amiee Bowker. A trained Milliner, Amiee has moved away from fashion to the world of arts & crafts, specifically lino printing, which is showcased today in her wonderful collection of gift wrap.
Inspired by the wildlife and nature around her English home, each sheet of wrapping paper starts life as a hand drawn sketch; capturing the natural world and wild animals in bold, striking designs. The original drawings are then transferred to a lino cut and hand-printed onto a high quality, ribbed Kraft paper. I love the unique look of Kraft paper for gift wrap (it’s the traditional ‘parcels in string’ thing!), when coupled with Amiee’s strong, detailed prints you get an extra special touch, which really makes this wrapping paper stand out.
Each sheet of gift wrap measures approx 50 x 70-75 cms and is made to order. Due to the technique of lino printing, slight variations exist between each print giving you a truly unique, hand-crafted look.
Featured gift wrap designs are available to purchase as single sheets or wrapping paper packs of 3 sheets, retailing at £2.50 and £6.00 respectively. For more information on stocking or purchasing from the collection please visit the Handmade and Heritage Etsy shop.
