I’ve always found gift wrapping to be rewarding, as a child I wrapped gifts with a wide range of fabrics. The act of giving is such a powerful way of communicating our love, gratitude and appreciation for a person.
Being of Indian origin, and growing up in the UK and Australia I was surrounded by luxurious textiles and was always fascinated by the immense array of colours, fabrics and designs I would find during visits to India. It was when I was living in Dubai and Vietnam that I saw people primarily wrapping gifts in cellophane film, causing non recyclable waste. Realising there had to be a better way, I thought back to the way I wrapped gifts as a child. Through my background in organic cotton and textiles I began to search for a suitable supplier, and also to curate the perfect fabric for ease of use and durability.
In 2019, I launched FabRap, and I’ve been thrilled by the response. We have been recognised by significant media outlets, even being featured in the commemorative album for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2022.
We’re proud to say that our products 100% GOTS certified organic and made under fair labour conditions in India. Our supplier has a small operation, and while in production for our products the workforce grows by around 40%.
From what our customers tell us, the most important reason people buy our products is because they love the fact that we are 100% GOTS certified organic and sustainably produced. That, and the fact that all our designs are exclusive to our brand and that they cannot be found in any fabric store.
