This baguette bag is one of my favourite bread bags! My mum and dad have a house in France so I love that we can head to the bakery every morning and it will stay fresh.
It's also awesome just for normal bread rolls if you buy fresh bread from the local supermarket that's loose.
Made by two girls who live and breath zero waste with natural cotton in a great design.
MY FAVOURITE FEATURES

Baguette Bag - Dans Le Sac
Two 20-something friends, one freelancing as a yoga teacher, photographer, artist and painter, the other studying education at university and passionate about the environment, health and food/cooking.
One day, Stéphanie (the yoga teacher) suggested to Laurie (the "professional student") that they start making bread bags. Laurie was already composting at home (using worms!), while Stéphanie had a growing interest in the "zero waste" lifestyle. Stéphanie was also in the habit of taking a pillowcase to the corner bakery to pick up bread. When she got back home, she realized that the pillowcase wasn't the most ideal esthetic choice!
They decided to look on the Internet for a product that would be suitable in both practical and esthetic terms, but found nothing that met their criteria.
Equipped with only a sewing machine and plenty of naivete, they went to Montreal's famous Rue Chabanel to buy fabric. They then began producing the prototype of what is now their reusable bread bag.
Embracing entrepreneurship was a thrilling and surprising (and stressful) adventure for these two young women, who had no prior business experience. Although they're still at the learning stage, they're having loads of fun!
No longer studying at university, Laurie is now focusing her efforts on their flourishing company. Meanwhile, Stéphanie has to turn down certain contract requests because demand is so high and people are so receptive to this new lifestyle choice (YEAH!).
