The Pompom collection came about from a brief to design a wrapping paper for generic occasions.
A design that could be versatile across a range of ages and occasions.
For some reason I took my inspiration from pompoms, I think as they are fun and reminded me of childhood. Yet also in their made state are explosive and celebratory with all their bits sticking out, so look a little like fireworks. You have pompoms where they are half made and flat where the wool is still wrapped around the discs.
In this collection there is a Lilac, Mint, Mustard and Teal design as either:
- Half a Pompom
- Flat pompom
They’re bright, fun and generic as the design requested. Suitable for any occasion from celebrations to birthdays for both young and old.
I also discovered they make beautiful fabric, so are a truly versatile design.
