Reusable Cotton Produce Storage Bag For Longer Lasting Produce
KEEPS YOUR PRODUCE FRESHER FOR LONGER using this reusable cotton produce storage bag!
UNIQUE 3 LAYER DESIGN
This Cotton Produce Storage Bag, The Swag, is made out of three different/unique layers of 100% natural, unbleached, unseeded cotton materials. Each of the three layers plays a significant role in keeping your fresh produce fresher for much longer!
1. THE LAYER THAT PROTECTS YOUR FRUIT & VEGGIES
The robust outer layer of The Swag protects your fruit & veggies by preserving the water within the middle layer from drying out too quickly.
2. THE LAYER THAT LETS YOUR FRUIT & VEGGIES HYDRATE
The thick, absorbent middle layer holds the bulk of the moisture. This layer draws the water away from the fresh produce yet allows it to hydrate as needed.
3. THE LAYER THAT LETS YOUR FRUIT & VEGGIES BREATHE
The inner layer of The Swag provides a dryer protection barrier however as all three layers are permeable, they allow your fruit & veggies to breathe and stay Fresher for Longer.
The Swag not only saves you money – it saves time! Less rummaging through your fridge and less trips to the shops! Our lightweight produce bags are also great to use within your Swags in order to keep loose things like snow peas or loose-leaf spinach contained.

The Long Swag is mostly used to store longer vegetables such as; celery, spinach and leeks however you can put fruits & veggies that aren’t long or perhaps several bunches of herbs and fold it in half to make it more compact.
The Bread Swag is the best way to store Artisan or sourdough loaves. It is 100% natural, reusable, and machine washable, and a non-toxic alternative to plastic bags. The Bread Swag is perfect to store whole loaves of artisan or sourdough bread. It is not recommended for processed white bread. This multi-layered Bread Swag allows your bread to breathe and reduces sweating.
How to use Bread Bag:
We always recommend putting your Bread Swag through a wash cycle before first-time use.
Simply place your Artisanal or Sourdough loaf into the Bread Swag and draw the string tightly pushing out any excess air. Store in the fridge, freezer, or pantry.
For extra protection, wrap a sheet of baking paper around your bread before placing it into the Bread Swag. When needed, turn inside out, and cold machine wash preferably with non-toxic washing powder. Dry in full sun (avoid the dryer due to shrinkage).
