NEW! Bees Wrap for Bread


The planet friendly alternative to cling film and tinfoil, these bread wraps are ingenious! 

Reusable (up to around 100 times) and biodegradable, they can be composted at the end of their life.

Made from beeswax, cotton and pine resin it is completely natural so no nasties leach out into the food wrapped in them and food stays fresher longer. They cling to themselves with the warmth from your hands moulding the wraps to give a strong seal.

Unlike cling film or foil that you throw away after one use, they can be washed in cold water with a little soap and are ready to use again.

Sizeable enough to wrap a loaf of bread and designed specifically for this, they have many other uses including covering bowls, wrapping cheese, sandwiches, bread, halved lemons & limes, vegetables … the list goes on. Excellent for picnics and they can be made/moulded into little pouches for carrying berries, nuts and snacks etc. In fact the only thing they shouldn’t be used for is meat, cooked or raw.
