flaxnet / String bag


Nowadays the good quality of natural products, particularly available at farmer’s markets contrasts with the use of plastic bags. Our more up-to-date concept of a traditional string-bag is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags and is especially suitable for produce. Due to its shape, the bag doesn’t take up much space, can be stacked easily and is comfortable for users to handle. To transform the flat bag into a net, it only needs to be pulled up from its handles. It is able to maintain its form and can be used as a bowl for produce. Since the product consists of natural fibres, it is biodegradable after being used multiple times.
