That's a Wrap

December 12, 2014

There is always something special about receiving a parcel.  I have such clear memories of care packages from my grandmother in Scotland, homemade toffee, local comic books (Oor Wullie and The Broons) and hand-sewn and knitted clothes for us and our dolls, all sturdily boxed, wrapped in brown paper and secured with masterful knots.  A magnificent hand-knitted lace christening shawl when my younger brother was born…

We wrap our linens in plain tissue, and tie with ribbon, a labour of love.  Bows are tied just so, for our own satisfaction as well as our customers’.

We have had exactly two complaints that we should wrap in plastic.  I forgive them.
