Elegant & Vibrant Recycled Ribbon For Gift Wrapping

At Hansel, we’re always striving to be at the forefront of making gifting that little bit greener through providing gift wrap and all of the trimmings that are 100% sustainable and recyclable. So, we’re thrilled to be able to offer these beautiful, recycled ribbons – perfect for brightening up any gift whilst remaining conscious of the harm that traditional ribbon can do to the environment.

When you’re seeking the perfect touch for a present at any celebration, milestone event, or simply as a heartfelt gesture, our exceptional and versatile collection of recycled ribbons has you covered. These eco-friendly, stylish ribbons not only elevate your gift-wrapping game but also make a positive impact on the environment by repurposing materials that would have otherwise gone to waste.


Adding Recycled Ribbon To Christmas Presents

Seeing beautifully wrapped gifts, decorated with ribbon, is one of the most recognisable christmas images! But, did you know that most of the ribbons you get from the high street stationery shops are not actually recyclable and end up in landfill dealing damage to our environment?

That’s why, when you decorate your festive gifts with our stunning recycled ribbon, you can not only create your own versions of the festive staple gifts, but you can also be safe in the knowledge that you’re doing so while taking care of the environment and doing your bit to combat climate change.

Adding Recycled Ribbon To Birthday Presents

It’s not just Christmas presents that can look all the more better for having a touch of ribbon added. You can also take your birthday gift wrapping to the next level with our ribbon. Whether you’re looking for a classic touch or a pop of colour, our ribbon is the perfect addition to your presents and is certain to leave the recipient feeling that bit more appreciated. 

We have a variety of colours and widths, you can choose the perfect ribbon to match the recipient’s favourite colour or add a touch of your own personal style with a combination of colours that contrast perfectly with the wrapping paper being used.

Getting Creative With Recycled Ribbons When Crafting

Whilst our main goal is to help clean up gift giving so that everyone gives in a more environmentally responsible way, that’s not to say that you can’t also offset some of the damage that could be done by the contents of your arts & crafts box. 

That’s why we’ve curated a unique selection of recycled ribbons to help you unleash your creativity while minimising your ecological footprint. Our assortment of reclaimed and repurposed ribbons offers a vibrant range of colours, patterns, and textures, perfect for any DIY project you have in mind. 

There are endless possibilities when getting creative with ribbon, from ribbon embroidery to making ribbon wreaths and much more. If you’re looking for some cool and interesting ideas on what to do with all of your new recycled ribbon then take a look at this blog written by The Spruce Crafts.  

Why Make The Switch to Recyclable Ribbon

There are several convincing reasons to make the switch to recyclable ribbon for your various needs. One of the main reasons is the reduced environmental impact. The traditional ribbons which you can pick up from high street arts & crafts shops are usually made from synthetic materials that take centuries to decompose and end up polluting the environment in landfill sites. But, when you purchase recyclable ribbons like those here at Hansel, they are made from 100% natural fibres, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and minimise waste in landfills.

Another advantage of our recyclable ribbons is their unique designs and textures. Crafted from a variety of repurposed materials, these ribbons offer a diverse range of colours and patterns, allowing your wrapped gifts and DIY projects to stand out from everybody else’s. Additionally, using recyclable ribbons supports a circular economy, where products are designed for reuse, recycling, and regeneration, helping to conserve resources and reduce waste.

Creative Ways You Can Use Ribbon When Wrapping Gifts

With ribbon in hand, you’re the maestro of a boundless symphony of creative possibilities! When you want to really spice up your gift wrapping with a riveting ribbon creation, here are just a few of the ways to do it!

One delightful method to incorporate ribbon is the classic bow. Choose a ribbon with a complementary colour or pattern to your wrapping paper, and create a simple yet elegant bow to adorn your gift. For a more voluminous look, try the multi-loop bow technique. This is a little tricker and could take a little more practice but the idea is to create multiple loops of ribbon, pinch them together in the centre, then secure it with a smaller ribbon or twist tie. Fan out the loops, and you have a stunning, full bow that adds a touch of sophistication to your gift.

Being unconventional when adding ribbon to your gift wrapping can often bring out a completely unique look, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and use ribbon in these unexpected ways. For instance, you can create a ribbon garland by stringing together small ribbon loops, tassels, or pom-poms, and wrapping it around your gift for a charming, handmade touch.
