Welcome! We're so glad you found us.
My name is Melissa, founder and creator here at Prairie Minimalist.
How It All Started
Prairie Minimalist was born out of my love for creating and my growing interest in a simpler and more natural lifestyle. It was startling to find out just how much waste was really being produced in our world of disposables and convenience. I pulled out my sewing machine and started out making cloth napkins and produce bags.
All this sewing lead me to open up a little shop on Etsy. Being a long time do-it-yourself sort, I stumbled upon beeswax wraps and had to try out my hand in making them myself. I was sold and after much experimenting to get the perfect recipe, I added them to my shop. Things really took off from there.
When I started this journey, I had no idea what it would grow into. I started by myself in a little corner of my home and have grown into a workshop on our acreage that is now Prairie Minimalist. It has been an exciting journey with much learning and I am so grateful for the lovely customers that have made this shop what it is today.
We seek to support other small Canadian business, offer realistic, low-waste options and have products that are ethically made. All of our beeswax wraps and bags are handmade in our workshop from us to you using top quality ingredients to bring you an awesome product. To find out more about our wraps and bags:
