Warre wraps are a sustainable and reusable food storage option. They are plastic free, non-toxic, and a simple alternative to keep your food fresh. Following simple care instructions will ensure your wraps last up to a year or more.
Emily uses a special mix of beeswax from her warre hives, tree resin and organic coconut oil on her cotton wraps.
Beekeeping in a warre hive is as natural as it gets - no plastic frames, no chemical treatments, and no feeding the bees sugar syrup, which means the wax used to make her wraps hasn't been contaminated in any way.
How to use : Place or fold over a jar or bowl, sandwich, cheese, vegetables or leftover food. Use the warmth of your hands to mould your wrap into place. It will stick to itself and to most surfaces.
How to care for your wrap : Wash your wrap with cool water and a mild non-chemical soap with a wash cloth. Keep away from heat sources. We do not recommend using our wraps with raw meat or greasy and acidic foods.
Giulio's honey comes from several hives of European honey bees (Apis mellifera) that he cares for in his backyard in Marrickville, NSW. He uses natural and small scale beekeeping methods and leaves plenty of honey behind in his hives for the bees to stay happy and healthy. All honey is harvested and cold extracted by hand. The honey is minimally filtered, so that it still contains traces of local pollen and propolis. The bees collect nectar and pollen from a wide variety of sources in the surrounding gardens and parks and thus the honey varies in flavour, texture and colour depending on the season, the weather and what is flowering.
