While these high fashion pieces aren't ready-to-wear, they certainly show how designers can be innovative with unexpected materials. Wrapped by housemouse is an Australian-made designer wrapping paper brand with a commitment to sustainability since their establishment in 1996. The paper is printed in Australia, uses vege-based inks, and is printed on 100% recycled, acid-free, and pH-neutral paper.:: Wrapped by housemouse™
