Handcrafted bread linen bag. Made by Three Pines Studio
in Cross Village, Michigan. Traditionally, French bread was stored in linen (sac à pain) to preserve both the freshness and crust of the baguette. Linen can absorb humidity up to 35% without giving a sensation of wetness. Linen has both heating and cooling qualities. At home, the sac à pain has its own place, hanging from a cupboard or doorknob. It quickly becomes part of the household. Each item is a unique piece made from traditional woodblock print. Sizes, shapes, and colors vary.
