This week we joined forces with our friends at Conpiescious: a great new company that showcases environmentally friendly products and lifestyles.
We wanted to get ready for Easter in the most eco-friendly way possible and to us, this means ditching the foil wrapping and plastic box inserts in favour of something a little more sustainable. So instead, we made chocolate eggs from scratch and then wrapped them in re-usable, eco-friendly Furoshiki cloths from our favourite supplier Musubi London.
Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese form of fabric wrapping which uses a series of folds, twists and knots to enclose the item ready for gifting or transporting. We picked cloths with bright, floral patterns to celebrate the coming of Spring!
Take a look at the result in the video above and incidentally, if you'd like to find out more about the art of chocolate making, Paul A Young Fine Chocolates is a great place to start. I hope you feel inspired to attempt your own masterpieces this Easter.
