      Honeywrap – Designing Fabric considerations.

      • As our wraps are cut from a roll, the repeating print design should be at least every 20cm to ensure all your design elements appear on each wrap.
      • Honeywrap logo below – check out our Honeywrap website for other ideas on the use of the logo in the print
      • In order to avoid bleed and loss of fine lines in the design we highly recommend printing on a lighter background with dark text. Our organic cotton is an off-white/light cream colour and the wax is a golden colour which results in the final product having a golden wash look. 
      • The print lines should ideally be a minimum of 1mm thick on a lighter background to avoid dye colours bleeding into each other.

      Honeywrap was inspired by nature and a passion for reducing single use plastic to help preserve our planet for the future.

      Our vision is to make a difference for the next generation. We are committed to conservation, communities and commerce working in harmony to create a sustainable, healthier world.

      Each Honeywrap beeswax wrap is made locally in New Zealand from GOTS certified organic cotton and natural ingredients. Honeywraps are reusable, sustainable and offer a natural alternative to plastic food wrap.

      Best of luck with the competition.

      - The Honeywrap Team.

      Forest and Bird is the voice for Nature.

      Bird of the Year is an annual election-based competition run by Forest & Bird to elect a "Bird of the Year" in New Zealand.

      Why does Forest & Bird run Bird of the Year?

      Raising Awareness

      New Zealand’s birds are amazing! Tragically, many species are in danger of becoming extinct, so they need all the recognition they can get. 

      Bird of the Year helps to raise awareness for New Zealand’s birds, in the hope of inspiring people to take action to protect our incredible native birds and the places they live. We can work together to protect our birds by taking care of our environment, forests and oceans, and controlling pest species.

      When we care for our birds, we care for our communities. When our rivers, forests, and oceans are healthy, both birds and people will thrive!  

      Our amazing birds need your help.

      Bird of the Year celebrates our unique birds and each vote you make, helps give our New Zealand birds a voice.

      Show your love for birds by voting in Bird of the Year and supporting Forest & Bird.
