gift guide: lush

every year, lush comes out with these super cute printed gift boxes, which recipients keep after they open their present because the boxes are useful for storing things! (lush has cute wrapping paper too!)
but this year, aside from the re-usable boxes, lush has a new and even more eco-friendly way to wrap their yummy-smelling soaps and stuff: introducing the lush knot-wrap!
The Lush Knot-Wrap is inspired by the Japanese art of Furoshiki, which literally means “cloth for the bath”. Originating from Japanese culture where it promotes caring for the environment and reducing waste, it started out in the 1600s when people used it to carry their clothes and toiletries.
Lush encourages customers to use these vintage scarves instead of gift wrapping paper. At P375 each, the beautiful scarves are reusable and multipurpose. Using techniques similar to origami, it can be used for gift-wrapping, grocery shopping, decor, or even as a fashion accessory.
lush is located at glorietta 4, greenbelt 3, bonifacio high street, shangri-la plaza, and mall of asia
