Melanin Wrapping Paper first came as an idea I wasn’t searching for while in deep meditation. I had a very strong impulse that said “create a wrapping paper.” Nothing more, nothing less. Everything in me was ready to leave it as an idea written in a book on a page, to never be completed. As the days went on something kept tugging at me to make this idea come to life. Clueless, and afraid, I stepped up to challenge myself and created the Christmas kids design. From the moment I saw it completed, I knew this was way bigger than a one hit wonder Christmas product, and that the black community needs more representation in the gift wrap industry. It was at this moment that Melanin Wrapping Paper was born.
