Toile Wrapping Paper

Updated on March 10, 2011

What is Toile Wrapping Paper?

Toile wrapping paper is simply wrapping paper with a toile pattern and can be found in a variety of patterns.. Toile originated from French fashion designers in the 16th century. Fashion designers used a cheap linen to test patterns on, and this was the beginning of toile. If a design pattern was well-liked on the toile, the pattern would then be transferred to a more expensive fabric.

Toile wrapping paper can be found in a variety of colors and patterns. The most common is an ivory pattern on white paper followed by black patterns on an ivory background, but it can also be found in any color.

Toile tissue paper is often used along with toille wrapping paper to dress up gifts even more. It is also good for cushioning fragile gifts inside of boxes. Another popular use is to dress up the inside of gift bags.

Many Uses of Toile Wrapping Paper

While toile wrapping paper maybe a great way to wrap a special gift, it can also be used in many more creative ways; however, toile wrapping paper is still great for giving a very special gift. Some of the best occasions to give a gift in a toile-wrapped box is for a wedding, a baby shower, or an anniversary.

If you like the idea of giving a gift wrapped in toile, but do not have the time or patience to wrap a box in toile wrapping paper, you can find toile boxes for sale with removable or hinged tops. The advantage of one of these pre-made toile boxes is they can also be used to store items in your home in a stylish way.
