A handwritten card can be created with your desired message. All gift cards are hand painted using watercolour and gouache paints.
Your gift is firstly carefully wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a Blake Clay sticker. It is then wrapped in a textured brown paper bubble wrap for added protection and finished with a natural fibre ribbon or twine bow. It is presented as the perfect gift.
How are items packaged for delivery? Do you use sustainable solutions?
Rhianna sources packaging materials for Blake Clay items that can be completely recycled and works hard to gather and find packaging that is sustainable and can be reused.
Blake Clay items are packaged in brown kraft paper that expands into a 3D honeycomb structure, providing a unique and environmentally friendly wrapping product that has cushioning just like bubble wrap. We encourage you to use the wrap again or it can be placed in your cardboard recycling bin. We use gummed packing tape on the delivery boxes and this is also fully recyclable. A full list of what we use can be viewed here.
Any bubble wrap that your items *may* be packed in has been gathered from other retailers and has been given a second life. We encourage you to use the bubble wrap again or recycle in Redcycle bins available at supermarkets across Australia.
All wrapping methods ensure that your items are safe for delivery to you.
