Re-usable & Biodegradable - Beeswax Wraps - Handmade in Lutruwita / Tasmania
Cloth inspired by ancient artistry in preserving & botanical alchemy.
We commission Fairtrade Organic Cotton and in the spirit of foraging, recover & Up-cycle Cotton fabrics to produce Beekeep.
Infusing each piece with pure Beeswax, Organic Jojoba oil & Pine Tree Resin we produce a reusable, naturally sticky, anti-microbial and water repellent food cloth, to replace single use plastics in our kitchens, oceans & planet.
At room temperature your Bee Keep becomes malleable, allowing you to shape it around a bowl, twist it over a bunch of kale, bread, cheese, herbs, half an avocado etc.
Once refrigerated, your design will quickly set, providing a healthy, breathable environment for your produce.
The environmental benefits of this product transpire to the overall health of your produce, allowing a breathable environment from which gasses are able to pass through the cotton, preserving your food from spoiling prematurely.
After each use, simply wipe over with a friendly alcohol free soap & COOL water, drip dry & it is ready to use all over again!
Tulip dyed Organic Cotton.
This project has been a slow & seasonal exploration of the tinctorial properties of spent blooms from the production of tulip bulbs. We draw upon age old techniques in natural dyeing, eco printing, batik & shibori methods..
