Last week a girlfriend and I went on a little field trip to a cute DIY/haberdashery boutique in Amsterdam called Handmade Heaven. What a cute shop! There’s lots of cool products to browse, and the owner is really friendly and helpful, and she organises tons of workshops for adults and children — we will definitely be back! It was then and there that I discovered and picked up the very cool WRAP magazine. Have you heard of it? The concept is simple but strong (as with all great concepts): the magazine interviews interesting people from the creative industry, and on the back of the pages they have designed patterns that can be used as wrapping paper. The royally sized sheets are held together by an elastic band so can be easily taken out, and as an extra bonus: the back of the cover contains little matching gift tags. All paper/design lovers will love this, for sure!
The last WRAP issue featured a textile designers (Donna Wilson), a ceramicist, an illustrator, an author, a chef (and a recipe!), and a design boutique, and I’m now hooked, so I can’t wait to see what the next issue will bring.
