Made from recycled fabric scraps, Rough Linen's reusable linen bread bag is durable, antimicrobial and takes up less space than a bread box. Linen is made of natural hollow fibers that transport excess moisture to the outer surface of the material so it quickly evaporates away, which creates an inhospitable environment for germs and helps prevent mold growth. The linen also decreases your bread's contact with airborne bacteria and maintains a consistent moisture level, both of which can help prevent it from going stale. Similar to a bread box, the rough, homespun quality of Orkney Linen is ideal for keeping bread insulated from light and humidity changes, with the added bonus that the bag takes up very little counter space.
The bag has a generous length to accommodate long loaves and baguettes. Its thick stitching and reinforced seams are not only attractive but more importantly make for a stronger product that is unlikely to rip, especially since the company uses strong, traditionally made linen from Belarus. Its durability makes for longer use and easy maintenance: To clean, simply throw it in the washing machine, preferably in cold water to avoid shrinking. And though it'll last for years, when you do finally retire your bag, the linen is 100% biodegradable for a reduced impact on the environment. To keep bread fresh for a longer period, and to prevent loss of moisture, we recommend to keep in the fridge.
