Beekeeper Veil - Waggle & Dipper


A Bella Beek exclusive print designed by Mandy Shaw. 

These veils are special because they were made by the women at Fabrique Artisan in Dehradun, India. Fabrique Artisan provides safe employment and living wages for women at high risk of exploitation due to the social caste system.

The production of these veils provided full time employment for 5 women! 

Beekeeping empowers us, and now we can empower other women by purchasing products like this.

Sizing on these are slightly smaller than our Portland made veils. They run mid-sizes xs/s, m/l, xl/2xl. If you are tall or curvy, we recommend going a size up from your usual size. 

If you are unsure of the sizing, contact us at hello@bellabeek.com 

Versatile Protection

Our veils offer superior visibility and sun protection and are made with high quality materials meant to work as hard as you and your bees! Each veil is made by hand in small batches in Portland, OR. 

We use woven sunhats that fit up to 59 cm head circumference (additonal sizes upon request). Our veil bodices are constructed with 100% premium cottons. 

Great for: Hot weather beekeeping, apiary tours, photo shoots, media promotions, special occasion beekeeping, swarm catching, also durable enough for everyday bee work.

Versatile: Can be worn with a traditional bee suit (over or under), over or under overalls, over or under a jacket, or over a shirt. 

How to wear: Nobody wants bees in their bonnet! To keep curious bees from crawling into your veil, make sure that the fabric sits snugly over the tops of your shoulders (not down the sides), the bodice should be snug tight at the waist. 

Disclaimer: When worn correctly our veils offer great protection, however our veils do not offer 100% bee tight coverage like a full bee suit would. Use your best judgement for how much protective equipment you need to wear depending on the temperament of your bees. 

Size Chart

If you fall in between sizes or have a long torso, we recommend going a size up.

Designed by a beekeeper

Our veils are designed by a beekeeper who understands what it takes to work with bees, and how important it is to have protection that offers visibility, comfort, and versatility.
