Q. I am annoyed with the smell of beeswax.
A. Many people like the beeswax scent, but some people seem to be sensitive about it. The beeswax has a strong scent at the beginning, but it will fade as it is washed many times. Also, as we use natural materials as ingredients, please be assured that there is nothing to harm your health.

Q. How do I revive worn out wrap?
A. The coating on the surface of KoKeBee Wrap may be worn out during use. In that case, you can use a sheet of baking paper, put the wrap on it, and put it in the oven at about 100 ℃ for 1-2 minutes. The the wax will melt and spread through all over the cloth, then open the oven and lift the edge of the wrap to avoid burns, wait for about 15 seconds, it will dry, Ant it’s done! If you don’t have an oven, you can put baking paper in a frying pan and put it on low heat, then put the wrap on top of it to melt the wax. Also you can put the wrap between two sheets of baking paper and iron with a low temperature.
Q. Are all wraps organic cotton?
A. The fabric used in the “Aboriginal Art Series” and the “Japanese Style Kamawanu Series” is not organic.
These two series are developed from our wish to protect the greatness of “Indigenous Australian arts and culture” and “History of Japanese traditional crafts”.
Australian Aboriginal peoples have suffered poverty, discriminatory abuse and cultural repression over a long history. As for the Aboriginal Art Series, the manufacturer used in this series pays the artist when tailoring the cloth material, so using this cloth will lead to financial support for Aboriginal artists and contribute to ethical consumption.
In addition, the “Japanese style Kamawanu series” has been realised in collaboration with Kamawanu, a shop specialising in hand towels, based on our passion for “making wraps with Japanese washcloth patterns!” It is a very nice craft shop that carefully inherits and uses the designs of the hand towels that have been used since the Heian era, so we can continue learning the ways from the past.
We would be very happy if people all over the world could feel the beauty and history of art in Australia and Japan.
