Bee Friendly Organic Cotton Bee Suits

Until now, ventilated bee suits have been made from artificial fibres i.e. fossil fuel-based plastics. The outside is usually polyester and the inner mesh EVA. At the end of their lives, these suits end up in landfill, or an incinerator. 

Our new suits are made from organic cotton, which is grown naturally and completely biodegradable. 3 layers of mesh provide total protection, and the suits are much more comfortable than their synthetic equivalents. Organic cotton means a better deal for farmers, the soil, and the bees! 

Our suits are available in 6 formats, with the option of either a round or a fencing veil
