ABOUT

HIGH-END GIFT WRAPPING IN HARMONY WITH THE ENVIRONMENT

Ficelle & Baluchon evolved from a wish to beautify our world with its colors as well as a deep desire to diminish our environmental footprint. We all know how difficult it can be to adopt eco-friendly behaviours. That is why we created products that make it real easy.

We offer three types of gift wrappings: fabric gift bags, reversible fabric gift wrappings and furoshikis. Our reusable gift wrappings are just as flamboyant and attractive as their paper predecessors while offering longevity and cost-effectiveness over time. Pioneers in the design of high-end ecological gift packaging, we stand out for the uniqueness, quality, aesthetics and durability of our products.

ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE VISION

Ficelle & Baluchon is an environmentally responsible business both in its output products and its production processes. From design to delivery, every effort is made to ensure our products have the least impact on the environment. Amongst many others, we promote local purchasing, we maximise our base material use and we use upcycled fabrics, compostable envelopes for shipping as well as 100% recycled cardboard for labeling. We are most proud of having generated no waste to date, with our production of more than 2,500 gift wrappings ! All base materials are used, down to the littlest bit of thread! We even upcycle our suppliers´ packaging or recycle them as a last resort. Don´t be surprised if your delivered order includes upcycled material in its packaging !

Being environmentally responsible also implies being socially responsible. We strive to hire people who are most likely to live in isolation to encourage the maintenance or development of their social network while benefiting from ethical work conditions. We also support social causes that are dear to us. In conclusion, being environmentally responsible is the basis on and around which our business is built.

TOP QUALITY AND
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Our gift wrappings are conceived, designed and developed in Quebec, Canada. They are carefully hand-made, down to the last detail. Each fabrication step has been carefully designed to offer a top quality product that will last. The result is such that the gift wrapping is a gift in itself.

EASY MAINTENANCE
TO ENHANCE PRODUCT LIFE

Our reusable fabric gift wrappings are very easy to maintain. Ironing with steam at medium temperature setting will erase creases. If needed, they can be machine washed cold on delicate cycle and hang to dry. Once dry, ironing with steam at medium temperature setting will restore them.

A UNIQUE CONCEPT INSPIRED BY PAPER WRAPPINGS

Our fabric gift wrappings are as easy to use as traditional paper gift wrappings and can easily be stored. Their reusability make them more ecological than those found in big-box stores which are often single-use and non recyclable. Why shop for hours for wrappings that will not last. You can now enjoy superb high-end gift wrappings!

THE BEGINNING OF A NEW TRADITION

Birthdays, weddings, graduations, Christmas, Valentine´s Day, the birth of a child: these are memorable moments that deserve to be celebrated. We are always trying to find the perfect gift to commemorate each of these life stages, the one gift that will delight its recipient and that will be remembered for years to come. Our gift wrappings are commensurate to your thoughtfulness, will delight your gift recipient and will become part of their best memories.

As our gift wrappings have been designed to last for years, we wanted you to find the models that best suit your needs. That is why we are offering various formats and patterns.

FOUR PROPOSALS FOR USE

We are frequently asked how to use our fabric wrappings. Here are four proposals for use:

GIVING

You can offer your gift in the gift wrapping for a comprehensive two-in-one gift.

EXCHANGING

Encourage family and friends to invest in environmentally-friendly gift wrappings. At each event, recipients will receive gift wrappings which they can reuse at the next event.

In conclusion: do what´s right for you!

KEEPING

You use the gift wrapping to preserve the surprise of the gift but you KEEP the wrapping. However, if you choose to do so, don´t forget to forewarn the recipient.

ATTRIBUTING

Keep the gift wrapping for your immediate family members and attribute a specific pattern to each. Just like Christmas Stockings, regardless of age, all will be filled with excitement when they see a gift in their attributed pattern wrapping.

Now that you know more about the mission and values of Ficelle & Baluchon, are ready to join me in this great adventure ?
