Bee’s Wrap was founded in 2012 by Vermonter Sarah Kaeck, a mother of three who has been, by turns, an avid gardener, milker of goats, keeper of chickens, and seamstress. Bee’s Wrap started with a question facing many families and home cooks: How could we eliminate plastics in our kitchen in favor of a healthier, more sustainable way to store our food?
What she discovered is a lost tradition made new again. By infusing organic cotton with beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin, she created a washable, reusable, and compostable alternative to plastic wrap.
In the early days, we hand-painted wax onto every wrap – for months the comforting scent of beeswax filled Sarah’s home. We’ve since designed a custom machine to coat our organic fabrics with a mix of beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. Today, Bee’s Wrap is handmade by our growing team in Middlebury, Vermont. Since 2012, we’ve created wraps that provide a versatile and durable solution for sustainable food storage.
