A bag for better bread
Like the French, keep your bread in a breathable linen bag that not only looks good on your counter but also maintains the crisp crust, fights mold and bacteria, and keeps bread fresh a bit longer than in plastic. No plastic, no toxins, no worries.
Ideal for home bakers, shopping at a local bakery, as space-saving freezer bags, or roll down edges as a bread basket to directly serve on the table.
Perfect way to present the gift of fresh bread!

Pure Linen Bread Bag
Think of pure linen as the fine jewelry of textiles. It's expensive because it's rarer and requires more time and skill to produce.
- Flax thrives in cooler climates. Due to the higher costs of living and business in these regions, the cost of growing flax is simply higher than cotton which is grown worldwide.
- Harvesting flax is time-consuming and laborious. From sowing the seed to harvest takes ~90 days. The plant must be uprooted and not simply cut in order to maximize the length of the fiber harvested. Extracting the flax fiber then involves a laborious 3 step process of retting, scutching and hackling.
- Weaving flax into linen fabric is art too. Linen fiber is inelastic, so great care must be taken when weaving. These machines run at lower speeds, giving lesser yields and increasing costs.
WHY NOT LINEN BLENDS?
While linen cotton and synthetic blends are less expensive (usually half the cost), we lose the wonderful properties of linen— like its ability to get softer, stronger, and more beautiful over time. Unlike most fabrics, it does not easily pile or get weigh down by oils and regular use. In fact, in Europe, pure linen is considered to be an heirloom passed down through generations! Pure linen is an investment.
Organic and OEKO-TEX® certified linens are made from textiles derived from plants grown without pesticides and processed free from harmful chemicals.
Not only is this better for the well-being of farmers and the environment, but a safer option for you and your loved ones as well. From sleeping to dining, linens are part of our everyday, so it's important that they are clean inside-out. This is especially beneficial for babies and sensitive skin conditions such as allergies and eczema.
