I am thrilled to share with you a collaboration I have been working on with BRIKA and several of my favorite artisans. A few months ago I was approached by BRIKA to curate exclusive gift boxes inspired by my book, Pretty Packages. I had so much fun brainstorming ideas and focused on including products that were both beautiful and functional. 

The WRAP IT UP gift box is perfect for someone who loves packaging unique and thoughtful gifts. The gift box includes an exclusive Dozi screenprinted furoshiki wrap in the beautiful (and best-selling) Scales pattern. The furoshiki wrap is 19"x19" and can be used to wrap small to medium sized boxes or odd-shaped gifts and also serves as a tea towel. The gift box also includes a set of exclusive Dozi gift tags (3 different designs, 24 total) in bright and festive colors. You will also find an exclusive Shapes & Colors Textiles' screenprinted zippered pouch in cobalt blue with a bright pink zipper. The pouch is a perfect alternative to a gift box or bag, just attach a gift tag to the zipper! And last, but not least, is a copy of Pretty Packages.

The PRETTY PAPER & PACKAGES gift box is perfect for all you paper and packaging lovers! It includes an exclusive Ampersandity hand-lettered "thank you" stamp, perfect for making handmade cards, gift tags or wrapping paper. It also includes a set of exclusive Ampersandity hand-lettered gift tags in two different designs (I think a gift wrapped with kraft paper and topped with one of these gift tags is simple and pretty packaging at its finest). You will also find a set of beautiful packaging inspired cards by Good on Paper. I was so amazed at how the design was inspired by the cover of Pretty Packages. And again, last but not least, is a copy of Pretty Packages.

If you are looking for a unique and useful gift for a friend or loved one, I think the BRIKA X SALLYJSHIM gift boxes would be perfect. Each item was made exclusively for this collaboration and is only available in very limited quantities. 

A big thank you to Jen and Kena, the co-founders of BRIKA, for inviting me to curate the gift boxes. They were amazing to work with and I really admire and respect what they are doing to support the handmade community and artisans. I also want to thank Lisa Wong Jackson of Good on Paper, Cathie Hong of Ampersandity, Wendy Chung of Dozi, and Samantha Cisneros of Shapes & Colors Textiles for being a dream team to work with! Thank you for making this collaboration fun and effortless!
