These linen bread bags from Helen Round are hands down the best bread bag I've ever had! As I make my own bread now because it's super cheap, contains no nasties and it's plastic free, I need a good bag to store it in; this is now my go to every time!
It's big enough for loads of rolls, a sourdough or a HUGE loaf which is what I normally make and it stays super fresh in this bag, without going soggy (from lack of air) or stale (from too much).
Not only do I use it for bread but I recently took it away with me for trips to the bakery in the morning and the amazing plastic free fruit market!

WHY I LOVE THIS
Making your own bread can save a huge amount of waste, plastic and paper and making sure you store it properly is vital.
If you ever actually look at the ingredients in supermarket bought bread then you'll be shocked at the amount of 'extras' in there that keep it fresh long enough to get from the factories to our homes, and then last a week without going mouldy!
My top tip for making your own bread is bake a loaf, let it cool, slice it and store in your bread bag in the freezer if you don't intend on eating it all at once!
