Soet Wrapping Paper


Dutch creative Naomi Bossert has launched a vibrant gift wrapping collection, just in time for the Christmas season. Inspired by bright colours and bold graphics, Naomi was encouraged as a child to create things by hand. Naturally she took great pride in wrapping her gifts, but after she relocated to Cape Town to study, she realised that the gift wrapping and stationery options were quite limited when compared to Europe. When friends offered her space in their stall at the Neighbourgoods Market in Cape Town, Naomi jumped at the chance and Soet was born. The paper is made from South African trees, and Naomi donates a percentage of her profits to a reforestation project called Trees for Tourism. Thick, weighty and beautiful, the wrapping paper retails for R25 a roll, with three designs in the collection. Soet also sells hand-painted notebooks, gift cards, and ribbons.
