If you’re asking yourself what is bread bag and why do I need one, hopefully we can shed some light on why a cloth bread bag is the key to keeping bread fresh as long as possible.

Our cloth bread bags create a breathable barrier that deters mold and keeps bread from drying out quickly. For “artisan loaves” (i.e. made by a bakery and not packaged, sliced bread from the store), storing fresh bread in a bread bag is a must.

If you ask someone in Portugal, or any European for that matter, why a cloth bread bag keeps bread fresh longer, you will definitely get a testimonial stating it’s true. Of course YMMV, because storing/ keeping bread fresh depends on the type of bread, as well as a number of other factors, including temperature, humidity and of course, the time of year.

And most importantly, just think how cool it is to store / hang bread in such a beautiful bag!

This fun and cheerful print incorporates iconic Portuguese traditions into its design: the rooster, azulejos (Portuguese tiles) and sardines. In addition to the azulejos pattern, this bread bag incorporates traditional sayings written in Portuguese:

  • Olha a sardinha!! …fresquinha. Fresquinha! – Look at the sardine! …Fresh. Fresh!!!
  • These sayings aren’t exactly PC these days, but this is what was said back then:
    • A mulher e a sardinha quer-se pequenina – The woman and the sardine want to be small
    • Galinha velha dá bom caldo, franga nova faz galo velho cantar – Old chickens give good broth, new chickens make old roosters sing
