As Founder of Wraptious, I made my first sale on a windy Manchester market stall seven years ago. It quickly became clear to me that it's inherently difficult for creatives to get their work out there! So I began collaborating with artists, passionately sharing their work at over 500 market stalls and 22 trade shows to date. Now I am proud to share that Wraptious supports over 50 artists directly, and has promoted thousands of others.
We believe all artists deserve an opportunity to have their work shared and enjoyed. Our new ranges are even launched from the winners of our biannual competition - fun events where the public, not us, choose our artists!
We go above and beyond for our customers, with product quality and sustainability cornerstones of Wraptious. We plant 3 trees per order, use sustainable resources and packaging and pay artists fairly. Just some of the things we care about.
Thank you for your support in helping us make a difference.

Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives. Every year, over 30 million trees are felled intentionally and by natural causes. Trees clean our soil and our air, provide income and nutrition and protect us from the elements. Trees For The Future is a non-profit organisation that has planted 180 million trees. At Wraptious, we have so far planted over 47,000 trees, and aim to plant 100,000 trees by the end of 2022.
