When I decided to go "public" with making pants, a woman I met proceeded to tell me "Oh its easy, just make them up, shove them in a plastic bag and send them off!" I new instantly that was NOT the way I wanted to go. There is far to much love, care and attention given to these pants to just "shove" them in plastic, let alone the "environmental" issues that we are all aware of.
Like most things I headed into the past to find some answers. I stumbled across an image of a woman, maybe late 1800's, holding a brown paper package, tied up with string containing her new tailored garments. PERFECT!
So now every pair of pants are wrapped in tissue paper, brown paper and string. All is able to be popped into the compost or recycling bin. I do spend a little extra on cardboard envelopes over the plastic one's because its important to me and its what I believe in. I hope it is appreciated because I think there is nothing better than a beautifully wrapped gift, something to make you feel special and cared for.
