What are Beeswax Wraps made of?
Our Beeswax Wraps are handmade here in Nailsworth by our own fair hands using organic GOTS certified cotton (in super funky patterns), Pine Resin, organic Jojoba Oil and locally sourced UK Beeswax. You can learn more about what our Beeswax Wraps are made from on our FAQs page.
We hand make all our beeswax wraps to ensure you get the longest lasting beeswax wrap possible. Because we cut the fabric before we wax it, the edges are sealed by the wax so you don’t end up with wraps that begin to fray after a few washes. We also infuse our wax mixture into the cotton for up to an hour, making sure all the fibres of the fabric have completely absorbed the wax mixture. This ensures the wax does not begin to crumble from your wraps after only a few washes.
We are really proud of how long lasting our wraps are and want you to get as much life out of them as possible, which is why we have also launched our Beeswax Wrap Refresher Block, so you can get another year out of your wraps, maybe even 2!
Why use Beeswax Wraps?
100% natural - Compared to cling film, our Beeswax Wraps are all natural so no nasties will leach into your food whilst its being stored.
Keeps your food super fresh - The combination of natural ingredients with the organic cotton fabric allows our wraps to breathe, making sure your food stays fresh for longer. You will find that when wrapped in our Beeswax Wraps you will get 3-4 more days out of your loaf of bread, your greens and herbs will stay nice and crunchy for at least a week and your sandwiches won’t be all sweaty when you unwrap them come lunch time.
Clingy but in a good way - Pine resin gives our wraps a natural adhesive making sure your food is sealed tight, the warmth from your hands helps mould the wraps to give a strong seal. And they really do stay sticky even after you have used and washed them over and over again.
Reusable - Rather than using cling film or foil that you throw away after one use, our reusable food wraps can simply be washed in cold water with a little bit of soap and they are ready to roll again. After a 2-3 months just refresh them and whoop whoop off you go again.
Biodegradable - Once you have used your wrap to the max you can pop it on your compost or you can twist up and use as a firelighter.
