Cotton Mesh Shopping Bag (Long Handle)

As seen on Zero Waste blogger Lauren Singer! Step out in style, around town or around the world, with a reusable bag that's fashionable, functional durable and has international cred. At first glance, this string bag may look small but it's special design stretches and expands to accommodate almost anything you put in it, from fruits and veggies, to breads. Measures about 30 x 36 cm, unstretched.

These durable crocheted cotton bags, known as filet (pronounced FEE-lay) in their native France, were initially made for fishermen. Because they can stretch to fit pretty much whatever you put inside, the lightweight bags became popular in the ’60s and ’70s as market totes for bringing home fresh produce and baguettes. They’re great because they hold a lot and compact to almost nothing when you’re not using them.

Available in 5 colors, so you can mix and match based on your mood!
