For something that would normally be thrown away by the average folk, the creatives behind these dope fruit papers sure didn’t hold back on the design!
Used to wrap and protect fresh fruit and veg, here in the UK fruit tissue papers are more of thing of the past. However across the pond in places like France, Italy and Spain they are still popular, and can be found in your local continental farmers market or corner shops.
Theres no getting away from the fact that the artwork featured on these fruit papers are beautiful. Designed to stand out from the shelf, artists often used a combination of bright colours, hypnotic patterns and animal characters to grab the attention of the consumer. Animals were also part of the design as a symbol of where the fruit or veg originated from – be it donkeys from Greece, tigers from India or bulls from Spain.
