Who We Are
My name is Kai, founder at Minimakers.
We are a local maker of small batch artisanal beeswax wraps. These unique premium wraps help to replace the need for plastic food wraps. Each of our ingredients are carefully sourced and lovingly handcrafted locally in Singapore.
Every wrap is created, quality checked and packed at our studio.
How it all began.
Our journey started mid-2018 when we were searching for things we could do to minimise plastic waste at home. We came across beeswax wraps on the internet and were intrigued. The manufacturing journey was not all smooth sailing, we've ruined many pots and pans, and an iron or two.
After months of testing and tweaking of oils, resin, fabrics and beeswax suppliers we finally found a recipe we were happy with! Our wrap clings well, is washable, durable, and also feels nice to the touch. It keeps sourdough bread soft, vegetables fresh, and slows down fruits and avocados from browning.
Starting Minimakers is truly my personal dream come true. We stay committed to being Singapore's no. 1 beeswax wrap supplier.
Along the way we promise to share products from other makers that we find awesome and life changing after testing it in our own home. Our hope is that we will spark an interest to get you started on your own eco-friendly journey.
By choosing our beeswax wraps, you are participating in a global movement to save our earth.
Our products are available via our stockists and online.

Our 3Rs Commitment
We make conscious effort in ensuring the entire life cycle of our product is as eco-friendly as possible. This is our commitment to you:
- Minimise wastage. We make our products in small batches and always with the environment in mind so there is as little wastage of raw materials as possible.
- Our products are 100% compostable. Meaning that when you are done with them, you can put them into your compost bin without burdening our waste management system.
- Revive old wraps. We offer mending bars so you can give your old wraps a new lease of life when the wax wears off.
- Mindful packaging. We use kraft paper packaging for our wraps and we reuse materials in studio for packing. You also have the option at check out to choose less packaging. Unfortunately, though we work really hard to ensure we avoid plastics from our packaging - our shipping partner only accept items posted in their poly mailer bag. We will keep trying to look for better alternatives.
