Vintage Linen Bread Bags

In Design, Food on January 8, 2011 at 10:13 am

I’d read about these Swedish bread bags on Momfilter‘s facebook page a while back—and, off topic—for those of us still mourning the loss of Cookie mag, how excited are we for Momfilter’s launch this year? The online Scandinavian design shop Huset sells these gorgeous Farmor bread bags made from vintage cotton linen tea towels that are sewn and embroidered by a little old lady in Sweden, or so I’m told. Unlike paper bags, which harden bread, or plastic, which renders it soggy, bread stays fresh longer in cotton linen. And seeing is believing. It really, really works. Days later the above boule of Homeboy multigrain bread that I picked up at Black Cat Bakery was still fresh after storage in this chic little bag. When ordering mine online, I mentioned in the comments section that our kitchen colorway was brown and gray with copper and pale blue accents. The bag looks like it was tailor-made to live in our kitchen. Each bag is unique so let the good people at Huset surprise you! Or, if you’re feeling crafty, why not make your own out of a favorite tea towel?
