Frank Wrap® is a natural and reusable alternative for food storage. This Natural Food Wrap replaces the single use of plastic cling film. It is made of 100% certified cotton (with low impact dyes), beeswax, pine resin and jojoba oil. It has antibacterial qualities that help to keep food fresh. It is plastic-free, durable, washable, reusable, compostable, sustainable and reusable up to a year.

The Frank Wrap® Beeswax Blend Bar is used to refresh your old Frank Wrap® or to create a new one using your own cotton fabric. Frank Wrap® reduces your consumption of plastic and at the same time supports the local community.

Frank Wrap® donates to Hospice Malta through its online store. All of its products are handmade in Malta, and are natural, biodegradable and eco-friendly.
