Local raw materials at 0 km
In our artisan laboratory we handcraft and package about 1000 paks per week. To make them unique, in appearance and performance, there are sustainable choices, from certified organic raw materials from selected local suppliers, to an accurate and exclusive waxing process and attention to detail.
Each beeopak encapsulates the loving work of those who cut, waxed, folded and packaged with their own hands a simple sheet of cotton able to give life to a small green revolution.
The natural beeopak fabric is made of organic cotton and soaked with our innovative blend of organic beeswax, organic Piedmontese IGP hazelnut oil and pine resin. The beeswax has breathable and antibacterial properties that promote the good preservation of food, which together with the resin and oil protect the food and make the fabric adhesive.
Our GOTS (certified organic and ethical) cotton is spun in Piedmont with a weave developed specifically for beeopak to absorb so much good blend.
We use only certified organic wax that is free of harmful chemicals like kerosene and stearin. In addition, our wax comes from local Piedmontese beekeepers who put the good and respect of the bees and the environment first. Good wax is the result of a balanced and sometimes even necessary harvest for the health of the hive, where there is no sacrifice or exploitation of insects.
Our fabrics are printed locally and all processes are formaldehyde free and OEKOTEX certified, therefore free of heavy metals and toxic substances.
beeopak has the declaration of conformity MOCA (Materials and Objects in Contact with Food).
