As beekeepers we know how important nature is for our bees and us. We like to respect nature, minimize disturbance and live together with what nature has to offer us. Locally but also worldwide. Clothing is not always produced in a environmentally friendly way, or in a proper labour environment, not to mention forced and (child) labour what is not uncommon.
When working in the bees I would like to have the best for my bees. This means a a good and healthy environment. This also means that my work clothing should be produced in an Fair and enviromentally friendly way. And this is exactly what BeeFair is aiming for!
To suport this project and later maybe even this brand, join our Kickstarter project by buying a jacket! Ofcourse you can do more: promote our project to your local bee friends and connections, for example by writing about it on your bee association website, Facebookpage, Twitter ect. and ofcourse spread the word!
Nice big breast pocket for small goods like papers, pencil, queen marking shields and paint.
Easy pocket to hold your smartphone, always handy when you use it for hive monitoring. This pocket will support almost all the major phone brands, like Samsung, LG and iPhones.
High Quality Zippers
Zippers from high quality, made for harsh working environments. Propolis and beeswax should not interfere their working. We also aim to have big handles on the zippers so it can easily be opened with the gloves still on.
Coat loop hanger (Unlocked on achieving €35.000 goal)
Handy coat hanger to store your jacket on a coat rack.
Sleeve holder (Unlocked on achieving €35.000 goal)
Always handy when you need to wear gloves. It prevents the sleeves from creeping up especially when putting your gloves on.
Detachable hive tool bag (Unlocked for FREE on €40.000)
Often the normal pockets are not sufficient for hive tools. They fall out when you bend and worse due to their sharpness damage your jacket. To prevent a broken jacket and falling hive tools we develped the hive tool bag!
Spare cap (Available for SALE on €45.000)
Caps tend to get broken sooner than the jacket, of course it's a waste to throw away the complete jacket. Therefore a spare cap will come available when enough people back our project!

Wordwide Shipping! Our product will be available all over the WORLD!
The main material used is Faitrade Organic Cotton. We also use zippers, metal rings and veil. This makes it very difficult to have the suit 100% Fairtrade. We follow the GOTS guidelines which allows less than 5% of the material to be from different sources.
At this moment we are talking with different producers in Europe. We did choose Europe to keep production close by, so we can check labour standards and the production itself.
We use High Quality zippers YKK or comparable quality.
A size table will become available after the goal is achieved.
