V-ECO FOOD WRAPS FACTS

  1. They're vegan, so no animals harmed.
  2. They help the planet - no single use kitchen plastic going into landfill or the oceans.
  3. They keep food fresh - saving you money on your shopping bill and help you avoid food wastage.
  4. They're water-repellent - water just rolls off them.
  5. They last longer than the more common sticky wax wraps.  My wraps don't rely on stickiness to work and you don't need to scrunch them up each time you want to use them - so less wear and tear and a longer life.
  6. They're plastic free- no velcro or "non-rip" nylon lining used -just natural coconut buttons, wooden toggles & cotton cord.
  7. They save you money - how many rolls of cling film or packs of sandwich bags do you use in a year?
  8. They're easy to use and easy to clean.

You don't have to take my word for it - have a look at what my customers say here 

You simply secure the Wrap by.pushing the knot and wooden toggle along the cotton cord – yes it’s that easy!. These non-sticky vegan Wraps contain just three natural ingredients which are blended to create a unique infusion specifically for the WrapRound™. The cord and toggle ensure the Wraps are secure - when covering a bowl, you'll know they're secure when you Tap The Wrap™ - it'll sound like a drum!
You can use WrapRound™ to cover cold food in a basin or directly round fresh fruit or veg. Unlike our former Food Wraps, you don't need to rely on the activation of the resin to make them stick, so the WrapRound™ has a longer life. So simple!.

These non-sticky Wraps that are so easy to use. You simply wrap your food as if you were wrapping a gift and then wrap the cotton cord around the natural coconut buttons in a figure of eight motion to secure them. Simple!

WRAPS
Very easy – just wash in COOL water with washing-up liquid - make sure it lathers up well, as this makes it more effective at removing bacteria.
As they're waxed, the water just rolls off them. Hang to dry away from any heat source. 
DON'T wash in hot water as this will melt the wax and render your Wrap unusable

BAMBOO CUTLERY
Couldn't be simpler - wash in hot soapy water, but do not leave to soak.

Yes, The toggle on the cotton cord is what secures your WrapRound™ to your kitchenware and food; and winding the cord round the buttons on the ButtyWrap™ WindRound™  and SoapSaver™ is what secures them.
I therefore don't need to make them sticky. This in turn means they have a longer life than sticky wraps and save you more money in the long-run.

It's simply because my non-sticky wraps last much longer than the sticky food wraps I used to make. My wraps don't have to rely on the resin to hold them in place - they stay secure with either the use of the wooden toggle or coconut buttons, along with the cotton cord.
With all sticky food wraps on the market, you have to scrunch them up to activate the resin and over time they will not work as well; so I designed mine as a longer-lasting alternative. They still keep food fresh and seal around your crockery and glassware or directly around food.
I've tried and tested so many permutations of ingredients to get to my unique blend and ensure your Wraps do their job.

DON'T use Wraps where they will come into contact with a heat source eg. oven, microwave, sunlight etc.
DON'T cover hot food as this will melt the wax and signal the demise of your wrap.
If used in an Omni kitchen DON'T wrap raw meat or fish as your Wraps would then need to be washed in a high temperature water, which would melt the wax.

All V-Eco Home Wraps and Pouches are handmade by me in the UK - NOT imported, so I know what's gone into them. I use only quality ingredients and reputable UK suppliers.
Also, I don't make beeswax products AND vegan products -I MAKE ONLY VEGAN WRAPS AND POUCHES. You can be sure there is no chance of cross-contamination with animal by-products - and because they're Vegan Wraps and Pouches, they're suitable for all - Vegan, Vegetarian & Omni.

I could use cheaper oils and waxes, but having carried out a wide variety of tests on different mixes, I decided the smell of cheap mixes was off-putting - "Eau de Used Cooking Oil" was not what I was after! Instead, I chose to use candelilla wax and cold-pressed jojoba, believing quality ingredients are the core of any quality product. My unique blend of candelilla, jojoba & pine resin gives a natural aroma which is not over-powering or offensive.
Depending on the the fabric design, your Wraps may have a golden hue to the lighter parts of them. This is simply due to the natural colour of the wax and has no effect on your food.

For me, it's about the quality of the product. I could simply pink the Wraps, as others do, but I want to ensure the edges are professionally finished and won't fray after several uses and so decided that while it lengthened the process for me, I would rather offer a quality Wrap than gain a fast buck.

I offer generous sizes and accurate descriptions. Unlike other wrap retailers, I don't claim they're a certain size and then say, "size may be slightly smaller because they're handmade" Instead I tell you the minimum size you can expect to receive, so that you're not disappointed by an inaccurate description.
The minimum size of each is:
WrapRound™   and WindRound™  packs -   Small - 19 x 19cm Medium - 29 x 29cm Large - 34 x 34cm
ButtyWrap™   -   34 x 34cm  - NEW LARGER SIZE
LoafLover™   -   69 x 49cm
BaguetteBuddy™   -   89 x 29cm

Unlike other wraps on the market, my wraps are not reliant on the activation of the resin in them to make them stick and so their durability is expected to be well beyond a year. Wash in cool water, don't use near heat or cover hot food and your wraps will give you great service, save you money and help the planet.
