Most modern gift wrapping can be broken down into two categories: the careful and the can't be bothered. The careful is just what it sounds like, nicely wrapped gifts with even seams, cloth ribbons, heavy duty paper and maybe a hand-crafted gift tag. The can't be bothered is epitomized in the gift bag with a piece of tissue paper thrown in for good measure. But every now and then the wrapping of the gift eclipses the gift itself.ManMade
recently featured this amazing wrapping paper. It is the brainchild of Sarah Fay and Justin Colt, two designers living in New York City. It is only available through Kickstarter
and is the initial offering of their soon-to-be-launched company Gift Couture
, which will specialize in high quality wrapping paper featuring original photography and design. If this set is any indication, they have a bright future ahead of them.
