I don't know about you, but when I think of Anthropologie, gift wrap and notions do not spring to mind but now… well it's a different story. They've rolled out a limited edition line for the holidays and seeing it I can totally see this working well for them going forward during the holiday season. Did you have a chance to watch this cute video that they put together to show customers a glimpse of their goodies? If not, you have to check it out because it will surely put a smile on your face today.
Available both online and in-store, Anthropologie's handmade papers in vibrant patterns and finishes are from faraway places like Thailand and Nepal, with spools of string and ribbon, tags, tie-ons and other embellishments being from mostly indepedent crafters and artists closer to home.
"Trimming choices range from spools of string and ribbon range from pompom twine by Roost, velvet ribbon, tinsel to recycled cotton yarn. Playful embellishments include jars of vintage buttons from Wendy Addison and tie-ons such as hand-felted wool flowers and glittered butterflies and fireflies. Creative tags from Le Canot Rouge, who makes quirky animal tags from post-consumer recycled paper and donates 10% of their gross sales to animal welfare, are the perfect place for personal messages. We also have special collector’s greeting cards from Austin Press, a collection of museum board alphabet cards die-cut by hand and letter-pressed with a vintage illustration."
