My third time ordering because everyone in
my family loves these products as much as
I do. So, I have given many away and I reorder.
Excellent quality, durable and we get really
creative with multiple uses. You will not be
disappointed. I have bought almost all so
this review goes for all, but this is a favorite!
Product just as described, would recommend.
We have mini cows and goats. I make yogurt all the time and now I make Greek yogurt with these bags. It comes out wonderful and they’re so much easier to manage than the plastic bins with plastic screens I used to use. Thank you!
Strong sturdy bags. I Put them to use right away. They worked excellent.
I ordered a set of three of these bags and love them! Baggers love them, too as they are much easier to load than floppy bags. During a summer visit with the grand kids, we did a tye-dye project and I removed the cardboard to give one of these a little color. It IS tricky getting the cardboard back into the sleeves. With patience it IS possible, and I love customizing the color. I plan to do another tye-dye project with my next order of collapsible bags and and will give them as gifts. Thanks for a great product!
I LOVE this set. It's a thoughtfully curated collection, and the individual pieces seems to be sturdy and well made (I haven't had them very long yet). I've been using muslin bags for fridge storage of leafy greens for years, but I finally got it about taking cotton produce bags to the store with me -- and that mesh bags replace paper or plastic produce bags while there, for things that don't need to be stored damp.
The big bag has nice wide straps so it doesn't dig into your shoulder when heavy, and the bottle holders inside keep the hard things from squishing your produce, which is nice.
I like the size array of the muslin and mesh bags, and whomever thought to put their tare weights on the tags was brilliant. I might wish for one more each of the mediums, but this is a good starter set that lets people get a sense of what they like to use most - then they can order more.
The two improvements I'd like to see are kind of related.
A) I wish they were pre-shrunk. I don't really mind that they shrink when you wash them, but it's just stupid to tell people that they have to be washed cold. Any fabric that spends extended periods of time in contact with food--especially if also damp (which is the only way to preserve leafy greens in the fridge)--is going to have to be washed and dried hot, sooner or later, to kill mold and bacteria that will eventually build up and make food rot sooner. Not to mention if you want to try to get food stains out of them.
So why not sew them oversized, shrink them before selling and then be honest about the size of bag we're getting? The way it is now, some people will feel mislead or disappointed when they shrink. If you preshrink them, no problems.
B) Once the mesh bags shrink, the fibers thicken and the bags are much harder to see through, making it difficult to tell what I have in my refrigerator. Wider weave maybe? or thinner threads if they would still be sturdy? I haven't tried washing the shopping bag yet, so don't know what's going to happen with shrinkage, there.
I keep trying to invent a labeling system. Hey OCM, how about snap-on cotton tag sets (single snap, heavy fabric the size of a pinky finger--like an oversized zipper pull) with the names of common produce items pre-printed on them? Maybe even a graphic of the fruit or veggie named? You could do separate sets for fruits, green leafy veggies, root (and other non-leafy) veggies, "most common" (or most requested), and a blank set for people to write their own (maybe include a few blanks in each pre-printed set, too). Put the bottom part of one snap on each bag (not in the seam - on the flat part) and the top part of a snap at the top of each label tag. I'll help you come up with what to include in each set, if you want.
Anyway -- overall, I really like these and highly recommend them.
As stated, the fabric of this tote is canvas so it wrinkles easily and can be quite finicky to care for, but the material is quite durable, lightweight, and holds up to usage.
The main issue is with the handles for me; I had to sew the handles shorter so the bag wouldn’t touch the dirty ground while I’m carrying my groceries home. However, this is a personal preference; I know others like to place the handles over their shoulder, though I believe this isn’t preferable since it can cause the handles to dig into the shoulder and cause back pain.
The stitching also looks to be rushed; I see several areas where the fabric was placed unevenly and stitched together, causing an odd flap or two of fabric. Nonetheless, this bag gets the job done.
Love these bags, cutting down so much at store on plastic produce bags. Also use one for spinning washed lettuce outdoors. Works great! Bye bye plastic salad spinner😃
Extra Large Canvas Tote
They are easy to wash (I scrub inside with included brush and then run through dishwasher), hold up well, super versatile. It's durable, but more environmentally safe than plastic and more pleasant than metal. Love them!
I’m making a yarn crawl bag( A yarn crawl is shopping in multiple predesignated shops in a set number of days…10 in the case of the Steel Valley Yarn Crawl in Western Pennsylvania. The cost of the initial passport used to include a knitting bag… but since Covid no bag… so I chose to create my own 2022 Steel Valley Yarn crawl bag… this one is perfect with pockets inside.. deep and just waiting for my yarn purchases, patterns, needles and trinkets! I’m decorating the outside with Fabric Letters “Steel Valley Yarn Crawl 2022” I sure think using the bag for groceries looks nice, but yarn… even better😉
The bags are very nice?
I received these to embroider for gifts. I’ve washed them and they wash nicely. I will enjoy giving them as gifts and keeping a few because they are nice and sturdy and thick. They were wrapped in paper and boxed nicely with recyclable material.
Love these produce bags! Great quality, washed up great on sanitize cycle (really hot water), no scent for chemical sensitive noses and fast shipping! We highly recommend this site.
Exactly what I was looking for-
Bankey. Love it
These were a gift for my daughter. She said they are lovely. Very soft with well stitched hems. A joy to use!
These tote bags were a gift for my father. They have durable fabric and look nice.
Thank you so much for these wonderful dust bags. They are so well-made and affordable.
I love the looks and feel of these towels! Will be ordering more
Soft enough won’t scratch your face and firm enough to get stubborn waterproof makeup off. Must buy!
i just love this throw blanket-the best part is it's organic.
It is one of the most versatile throws not too hot , not too cold -it hits the sweet spot!
Very pleased with these canvas bags. They're roomy and sturdy, and I love the side pockets for storing bottles. Highly recommend!
Utensils good but carry bag huge, useless.
Just what I was hoping. Can’t wait to get creative and paint some fun designs for gifts.
