As older patterns fly off the shelves – new ones fly in!
Versatile & Reusable food wraps are an amazing alternative to single use plastic cling film and foil. Each is approx 33cm x 33 cm and they are perfect for wrapping up your lunch, cheese, unused parts of vegetables, to seal jars or bowls, for your picnic food…. You have a choice of beautiful patterns and they are sold individually (if your preferred pattern has flown off the shelves of stock please message us so we can let you know when it buzzes back in). They would also make a lovely gift.
Handmade by a lovely lady called Alison, she uses the beeswax produced by her own honey bees in hives in Shropshire. Your wrap will be truly zero waste and will last ages if you look after it. At the end of its life it can be composted.
“The wraps are 100% beeswax and 100% cotton fabric, with no other added ingredients. Other makers add ingredients such as Jojoba oil, pine resin etc. They may make them ‘stick or cling’ more but, after a while, the additives can become become rancid and taint food items. Also, adding other ingredients increases the carbon footprint and I would not know how the ingredients are harvested, which is a concern in respect of ethical business practices and employment issues.”
To care for your wrap: after use, wash with a little soap under cold water and hang to dry. Every 3 months – or sooner if necessary – place on a baking tray lined with baking paper in the oven set at 100 Degrees Celsius for just 3 minutes. Then leave to cool. This is really easy to do when the oven has been on for another reason and has cooled down.
DO NOT USE your wrap in the microwave or to wrap raw meat or fish.
WE ALSO STOCK A VEGAN ALTERNATIVE – see our separately listed poppy print soywax wrap.
Your food wrap can be cut into different sizes but once you have done that there is no going back – we recommend keeping it at the larger size to wrap anything from the smallest bit of cheese to the largest sandwich. If you need a bit of help with wrapping you could try some string or an elastic band.
