If you’ve ever struggled with packing your carry-on suitcase, we’ve found a new way to pack. It’s called bundle wrapping and yes, we love it.
Bundle wrapping is a technique that involves the careful wrapping of clothes around a central core object, thus avoiding the folds that cause wrinkles. Add that to the tension created by the wrapping process and poof! No more wrinkles.
1. First, you’ll need an object that will form the core of the bundle. We’ve wrapped our undergarments in a t-shirt (as seen in video). This is known as the undergarment bundle.
2. Clothing is wrapped in a particular order so that your more tailored & wrinkle prone items end up on the outside of the bundle.
3. Take your jacket or blazer and lay it out flat on your working surface, face down. All other garments will be placed face up.
4. After all of your items are placed, wrap each piece completely around your undergarment bundle before you move onto the next item.
5. Voila! A bundle-rito!
