Since our maker-partner and us practice zero-waste ideals in all parts of production, we optimise the fabric cutting to strategically suit the specific fabric that we use, which due to being handmade will come in different size bales. The sizes stated here are the base size guide. You may receive a wrap that is 1-1.5 cm bigger than stated, but never smaller. This is your gain! The reason for the size difference is to minimise material wastage in production. 

The patterns shown are only a sample for illustration purposes. The wrap you receive may not be exactly the same as the preview. The pattern looks different in different cuts of the same cloth. Remember, block printing is a handmade process!

 

*Why wild-harvest?

From the wild jungles of Indonesia, our partners, Kalika, source beeswax responsibly from environmentally conscious wild honey collectors. Responsible harvesting ensures that part of the bee’s nest remains undisturbed, which helps maintain countless generations of healthy bees. The bees will not end up pining for scrunched up honeyless hives, as the harvesting process does not destroy the hives. The bees will be able to simply continue to build their home without needing to look for a new one.

 

To use

The warmth of your hand makes the beeswax wrap malleable. Fold and wrap as you wish. The wrap will create a seal around the object. 
Good for any perishables. Not suitable for raw meat. Do not wrap hot containers or hot food.

To wash

Wipe surface under cool running water. There is no need to use soap. Air dry before storing or reusing.

Support ongoing collaborations

When you purchase these wraps, you are supporting a three-way collaboration. We source the hand-made blockprint fabric bales from craftspeople who maintain the traditional technique of wax-resist batik fabric dye using copper stamps called 'cap'. We work with Kalika, a partner we love that shares our zero-waste ideals and principles in production, to wax the wraps in their proprietary natural beeswax blend. They source only ethical wild harvest beeswax to ensure the survival of future generations of wild honeybees. This is important to us as we love bees - they are one of the world's most hardworking and valuable pollinators.

The handstamped batik cloths are exclusive designs commissioned by BSG. They are handmade in the traditional way.
