I was initially drawn to these paper vases for their unique beauty, but it was really the story behind the manufacturing of these "vase wraps" that sold me.
First, a "vase wrap" is a coated strip of designed paper the turns any small drinking glass or jr into a bright and cheerful vase, just like that. They are a simple way to dress up any table, bookshelf, or desk – and once finished, they compress for easy storage. All designed by Lucy Grymes, a designer from Washington, D.C.
But here is the heart-warming part,
All of the Lucy Grymes paper vase wraps are hand folded by homeless women in D.C. through their partnership with N Street Village. N Street Village empowers homeless women and low-income women in Washington, DC to claim their highest quality of life by offering a broad spectrum of services, housing, and advocacy in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. They help women achieve stability and make meaningful gains in their housing, income, employment, mental health, physical health, and addiction recovery. Our hope is that these products will inspire creativity while putting the ease and enjoyment back into entertaining. It's time to throw a paper party!
