Why prepare your gifts with Creative Session gift bags?

1 - Original eco-friendly ideas - a limited edition!

In 2022, we created a limited collection thanks to a beautiful donation of fabrics with Christmas designs from a sewing shop in the process of closing. This allows us to have a double positive impact:

  • To offer you reusable pockets to surprise your dear ones, with a pocket not easy to find elsewhere... and in addition, with multifunctional packaging that can be used afterward and that is very useful to keep in a chic way the little things of value and all the small objects that we have to find easily in our handbags or backpacks.

  • Give you a good reason to smile: you will be happy too: - ), because you're going to do without using the traditional packaging responsible for 545,000 tons of waste annually in Canada It's our gift to the planet.

2- The surprise effect increases and reveals a little more of your personality

"The more elaborate and sophisticated the gift, the greater our attachment to the recipient. It's a sign of love."

Do you want to be part of this chic and eco-friendly community?

We have three ways to collect fabrics to create our ready-to-wear gift bags:

  1. Sewing Shops: We recover new materials from small sewing shops that would otherwise have ended up in the trash.

  2. Artisans or stores: Recovering new fabrics sold by artisans or fabric stores, whose scraps will not have a second life and will be thrown away.

  3. Creative people: From people like you who get excited about the idea of creating their own bags with the clothes they no longer use, but whose design and fabric they love. So, we have several choices to personalize your choice, contact us to have more info.

Live with us the experience of giving life to our gifts and fabrics, let's create together!

With Creative Session, giving a gift becomes a creation.

Did you know that the tradition of wrapping our gifts only appeared at the end of the 19th century?

Before then, gifts were given in full transparency! That is, without wrapping! At the end of the 19th century, the same kraft paper was used everywhere, and the whole thing evolved towards cellophane, decorated boxes, or colored ribbons. Retailers found it easier to convince consumers to buy their gifts if they could be wrapped.

During the Christmas season, gifts and toys were seen as decorations for the tree. Over time, wrapping paper has become a gift accessory to embellish this moment of sharing.

Whether you want to give a gift to a child or teenager, to your mom or dad, to a colleague or friend, or even to grandma or grandpa, any of the fabric gift bags could fit any need and you will be able to lovingly wrap that special gift that will please your loved ones.

More eco-packaging ideas!

The day after Christmas, we know: the trash cans are full of paper that doesn't get recycled. Zero-waste gift wrapping is necessary to try to reduce our impact without missing out on our tastes and sharing sessions. We share with you some other equally eco-friendly and creative packaging ideas. Here are some exciting options from the energir website:

  1. Fabrique B food packaging is made from beeswax, perfect for gourmet treats.

  2. Furoshiki wrapping technique that reuses fabric to embellish gifts.

  3. Solid wood box to carry pies, cupcakes, or cakes and reusable.

  4. Glass jars to create various gift sets (cookies, candies, sewing accessories, etc.)

Let's give value back to the experience of opening presents with packaging that is also a multifunctional bag. You will also have the opportunity to personalize your envelopes and immerse yourself in the world of Creative Sessions. The limit is your imagination.
