As the Plastic Free movement starts to gain real momentum it can be hard to navigate what products are good and what are bad. In a world where buying cheap products that only last a few uses has become the norm, we are working hard to change our buying habits. We are big believers in buying well and buying once.
When we began making beeswax wraps, we were making them for our own use. We wanted them to be really sticky so they continued to seal around our food use after use. It is also important to us that they are flexible; easy to mould around bowls, food etc. We also wanted them to last as long as possible, so the wax didn’t begin to crack once we had used them a few times and it didn’t flake off after washing. After years of trying and testing ways to make this happen, we perfected the mix of local beeswax, pine resin and organic jojoba oil which we now use when we carefully hand make each wrap. It is easy to make a beeswax wrap, but it’s not easy to make one that will last a year and keep on working beautifully time after time.
These are the reasons why our reusable beeswax wraps are the best quality you can buy.
Our wax mix is the perfect combination of flexibility and stick. The flexibility allows the fabric to easily mould over bowls and the stickiness ensures a strong seal around all of your food, keeping it beautifully fresh. Their self-sealing finish means they will stick to most materials, or to themselves, to form a watertight seal that locks in freshness and keeps out anything nasty while still letting your food breath.
They Don’t Fray
By hand cutting all of our wraps with pinked edges we can ensure that our wraps will never fray. We also cut before we wax so every edge is sealed with our brilliant wax mixture. The pinked finish makes the edges of our fabric stronger, so even a year down the line when your wraps need to be rewaxed, the fabric will be as good as new.
When we say they last up to a year, we mean they last up to a year. Because we hand make them we can make sure that every fibre of the cotton is soaked in the wax, this stops the wax from cracking or flaking off the wrap after you have used and washed it a few times.
But, we are not just about a great quality product, we are also about a great quality business. We are B Corp Certified, we are Living Wage employers and we are members of the Surfers Against 250 Club. So not only are you choosing a product that will last, you are supporting a company that is making decisions that have a positive impact on our environment and our community.
