Stylish and sustainable gift wrap
Paper Source, a paper goods retailer offering artisanal paper from around the world, designed a distinctive holiday gift wrap collection for Whole Foods Market, including 13 wrapping paper designs, four gift tags, six gift card holders, 12 gift bags in three sizes, along with several beautiful ribbons, bows, twine and washi tape to give packages a finishing touch.
