Ginger Pye is a small business started up by “mumpreneur” sisters Nicola and Julia in 2010. Stay-at-home mums with 4 children between us, we live in the great south of New Zealand (sunny Dunedin, that is).

Nicola’s creative flair was the catalyst to start the business — after a number of people enquired where her fabulous homemade reusable sandwich wraps hailed from, we decided to offer them to the public. We put our heads together, and are now producing a range of wraps to suit every taste, combining haute couture with environmental friendliness!

Just to let you know that my wraps arrived today and I'm absolutely stoked with them! They are beautifully finished and the fabric is just gorgeous. I hope that forecast snow doesn't arrive 'cos I can't wait to show off my flash new sandwich wraps at work on Monday! I see another order in my very near future - Carol, Dunedin

I hear great things from other customers. Thanks for helping to save our wee planet, and for doing it with such style!! - Steph, Wairarapa

Just wanted to let you know the wraps have arrived and they are fantastic! My twin boys go to a kindergarten which is an Enviro kindy and therefore has 'wrap free' lunches - these are a great solution when you really need to wrap something - I will be telling others about them. My daughter has just started school and thinks her wrap is far too pretty to put her lunch in! Thanks again - Rebecca, Christchurch

You Ginger pye-eans are super efficient. We got the wraps yesterday and they are fabulous - Emily, Bluff

My partner bought me the smaller wrap which we just love.  I’d recently been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and so have to have food with me wherever I go.  They’ve really helped making this a fresher less “Bag Mauled” experience.  I’m really looking forward to seeing the bigger one and my partner is looking forward to inheriting my old one! - Bill, Wellington

Fantastic kiwi-made product! My girls love having their sandwiches and snacks in them! Love the choice in fabrics and they are great quality!! - Megan, Nelson

Refer you to all my friends.....very impressed with the quality of your product....hope they are buying too!!! - Helen, Nelson

Hi Julia, my wraps arrived today! I love them, the quality is amazing! - Toni, NSW

This customer certainly recommends them!! I get to have lunch with the Beatles every day 🙂  Everyone who makes their own lunch should have one of these. No more glad-wrap!!! - Justine, Dunedin

The wraps are marvelous. One of my favourite things is if you take the bread out of the freezer and defrost in the wrap, it comes out fully fresh as though never frozen!  So I can make fresh sammies for my lunch when I get to lunchtime. Excellent! - Trish, Auckland

OMG that has to be the fastest delivery ever! Dunedin to rural Auckland in one day! The floral paisley wraps arrived this morning. I love the fabric and the quality is top notch. Thanks so much - Gemma, Auckland

All in all - we love them, I did used to worry about glad wrap for day care as the day care is into 'sustainability'...I really like the plastic side as it wipes clean so easily. - Fran, Auckland
