Packaging made from Fabric

Melissa Tatko Saturday, 1 December 2018

Melissa Tatko is the Head of Business Development for a social enterprise called Re-wrap, who make high-quality cotton products, from tote bags to knot wraps. Re-wrap's products are so durable, they last for decades rather than years, helping to reduce the need for single-use plastic bags, and as a result, waste in general.

A tote bag is an environmentally friendly option in comparison to a plastic bag as it has a longer lifespan for reuse, is made from a renewable resource and can biodegrade. In this Masterclass, we take a look at businesses creating packaging from fabric, such as Re-wrap, and their fantastic, easily accessible alternatives to disposable packaging and bags. 

In this video, you'll learn:

  • The problem with wrapping paper and tissue paper
  • Multi-use fabric packaging ideas
  • Transparency in production
  • The story of Re-wrap
  • Essential questions to ask your packaging suppliers
  • Where to start on your fabric packaging journey
  • Top pieces of advice for eco-brands
