Kitchen Storage: Simple Cotton Bread and Dry Good Bags from Quebec

Reusable Bulk Bag Combo from Dans Le Sac

The reusable market bag has become a staple for any trip to the farm stand (see our post on The French-Style Market Tote, Reinvented). But what about a reusable bag for keeping bread fresh on the counter, or storing dry goods in the pantry?

That’s where Stéphanie Mandréa and Laurie Barrette, the twentysomething founders of the Quebec-based company Dans Le Sac, saw an opportunity. “Stéphanie was in the habit of taking a pillowcase to the corner bakery to pick up bread,” they say. “When she got back home, she realized that the pillowcase wasn’t the most ideal aesthetic choice.” Enter the women’s simple cotton bags, an eco-friendly and practical storage solution for the kitchen:
