PILLOWPIA's french market bag No. 2 was featured in Food &Wine's article "The 7 Best Tote Bags for Your Next Grocery Haul," we're thrilled!
Pros: Compact and attractive, this netting-style tote expands to just the right size for carrying essential supermarket goods.
Cons: It doesn’t have any structure to keep items in place, so you may need a separate bag for delicate items like eggs or bread.
It’s said the popular French market bag originated in Normandy in the 19th century, made from the same string netting that fishermen used to haul their daily catch. Today, Pillowpia makes a modern version with the same netted-style tote in a variety of colors, with a wider strap that is more comfortable on the arm or shoulder than the original. Upon arrival, this tote might seem tiny, but it expands to fit a generous amount of produce and other market goods. Since it doesn’t have a flat bottom or any structure, you may need a separate bag for delicate items like eggs or a loaf of bread. Still, it’s a smart, compact choice to keep on hand for smaller shopping trips. Made of 100 percent organic cotton, this low-maitennance bag best can be hand washed and laid flat to dry.
