Vivienne Westwood's Climate Revolution
"Join the uprising"
Vivienne Westwood has designed a limited edition, 100% organic cotton Climate Knot-Wrap to be sold in Lush stores worldwide, with all profits going to support the Climate Revolution.
Inspired by the Japanese art of 'furoshiki', a knot-wrap can be used as a stylish alternative to gift wrap, worn as a headscarf, a fetching neckerchief or framed as a piece of art. The 'Knot-Wraps' are available in camel or light pink and are printed with two Climate Revolution images, each designed by Vivienne Westwood. The black-eyed, unsmiling face - 'the Face of War' - is Westwood's symbol for the fight against climate change and environmental degradation.
The idea is that after unwrapping a gift wrapped in the knot-wrap, the recipient passes this precious fabric on: to wrap another present, to wrap themselves in or - in the Japanese tradition – handing the Knot-Wrap back to the giver to be used again.
"I always say, buy less and buy better quality – so that what you buy will last. These Climate Revolution Knot-Wraps can replace wrapping paper and will last a lifetime." Says Westwood, continuing, "more importantly, when you buy them you join an uprising: the Climate Revolution that we need if we are to have a future that we can survive and thrive in."
A limited edition of 15,000 Vivienne Westwood x Climate Revolution knot-wraps will be on sale exclusively at Lush stores from today, retailing at AED 150. Each wrap is printed on fine organic cotton and woven by one of the last British-based artisans in the UK.
