Not Another Rubbish Christmas!

Hello! It's Tuesday, my name is Claire and I'll be making guest posts each week to keep you up to date with what's going on at Fabrications! I'm also going to be rummaging around the shop to pick my favourite item of the week and giving you some insight on what goes on behind the scenes! This week is all about Barley's sustainable gift wrapping service! The service offers the oppurtunity to wrap your gifts and look after the planet! The gifts will be beautifully wrapped and knotted around using vintage head scarves, handmade bows and the art of ‘Furoshiki’ – a traditional Japanese technique used to wrap and carry objects using fabric. There will also be the opportunity to decorate by creating your own individual rosette and bows or tag made from a range of festive coloured reused materials.

Make your gift your own by adding bows and rosettes!

The service is available here at Fabrications - if you can't make it down during the day be sure to make a note of the late night openings in your diary Thursdays 10th + 17th December is when Broadway Market’s late night Xmas shopping event is taking place!

Barley is also going to be demonstrating at ‘Hidden Art Design Fair’ in Truman’s Brewery, Brick Lane from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th November and the ‘East London Design Show’, Shoreditch Town Hall from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th December.

The service can also be taken away in kit format! The kits come with enough to wrap 3 gifts and is available at Fabrications and soon will be avialble in Liberty too!

This is a great event, full of good designers, pieces and decorations!
Unfortunately, Boca do Lobo couldn’t be at because we were showing at other events, but we will definitely try to have Boca do Lobo showing at the next edition.
Hope to see you somewhere around the world.
