A high quality, thick cotton canvas bread bag designed to carry freshly-baked bread from the bakery or food market. It features a flat bottom and a cotton tape strap that is designed to be wrapped around and tied securely to itself when the top of the bag is rolled down.
Because the bag is made from all natural fibres, it is also perfect for storing fresh bread as it prevents it from growing mould and also creates a barrier from any drafts which would dry it up. This method of storing bread has actually been used for a very long time and is still recommended by bakers to this day. The air exchange maintains the moisture at an optimal level to preserve the original taste and texture, as well as holding in that wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread!
For best results the bag should be sealed as tightly as possible. The bag also works equally well for storing fruit and vegetables, and as a bread basket with the sides rolled over a few times.
Made in Québec from 100% natural cotton which is grown and woven in the United States.
Bag measures approximately 34-36cm wide maximum x 33cm high. Strap length approximately 69cm.
The less you wash your bag the better; simply shake out any crumbs and reuse it as often as you like. However if needed, wash in cold water on delicate cycle with a soft detergent and lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. Do not use fabric softener.
Cotton fibre will naturally shrink by around 10-15% once washed. The bag is designed slightly bigger than needed for this reason. It must be washed in cold water and not put into the dryer as this would shrink the bag even more.
Dans le Sac's beautifully made reusable cotton bags are a great sustainable choice for taking along to your local food market or bakery and proudly refusing the plastic and paper bags which are still widely being offered for fresh produce. Dans le sac bags will last for years and therefore help to reduce our consumption and dependence on single use bags which has a major negative impact on our environment and oceans.
Stéphanie would take a pillowcase to the corner bakery to pick up bread, but soon realised when she got back home that the pillowcase wasn't the most ideal aesthetic choice! Equipped with only a sewing machine and plenty of naivety, the girls went to Montreal's famous Rue Chabanel to buy fabric and began producing the prototype of what is now their reusable bread bag. Today, the bags are all made just outside Montreal, Québec, using US grown and woven cotton canvas.
By offering consumers a sustainable and reusable product, Dans le Sac’s goal is to encourage people to reduce their consumption and dependence on plastic out of a concern for both the environment and their health. They believe every action counts and can even have a significant impact.
