British designer Vivienne Westwood has designed a limited-edition Climate Knot-Wrap this Christmas to be sold in all Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetic Stores Worldwide.
Sales of the 100-percent organic cotton product will go to support the Climate Revolution.
Inspired by the Japanese art of furoshiki, a knot-wrap can be used as a stylish alternative to gift wraps, worn as a head scarf or fetching neckerchief, or framed as a piece of art.
The Knot-Wraps are available in camel or light pink and are printed with two Climate Revolution images designed by Westwood. The black-eyed unsmiling face—the Face of War—is Westwood’s symbol for the fight against climate change and environmental degradation. They are printed on fine organic cotton and woven by a British-based artisan (one of the last in the UK).
After unwrapping a gift, the recipient passes this precious fabric on: to wrap another present, to wrap themselves with, or, in the Japanese tradition, to hand the Knot-Wrap back to the giver to be used again.
Mo Constantine OBE, co-founder of Lush Cosmetics said: “Christmas is about giving, not about wrapping, packaging and waste. We’re delighted that Vivienne has designed this Climate Revolution knot-wrap for us.
We’ve been encouraging our customers to use fabric as packaging for years; half of our products don’t even need packaging, they come “naked.” So this is an exciting collaboration—two iconic British brands coming together, at Christmas, and asking the high street to consider their waste.”
