/ OUR STORY
Bagstille was created on a summer afternoon when Julie was sharing stories with Sarah about growing up in the South of France.
Every evening, Julie's grandma hung her linen bread bag on the front gate containing one Franc, with the delivery boy from their local boulangerie swapping the Franc for a baguette early the next morning.
The sac à pain (as bread bags are known in France) was then hung in the kitchen, with its linen properties keeping the bread fresher for longer.

Our Bagstilles are inspired by France & proudly made in NZ from beautiful 100% textured linen in a classic French design.
Making a sustainable product, is vitally important to Bagstille’s ethos of helping to reduce the need for any type of single-use bags, & taking your Bagstille when shopping for fresh bread, eliminates the need for these.
Bagstilles are equally perfect for looking after your homemade bread creations, & are a beautiful homeware addition to any kitchen’s décor.
We'd love your feedback & photos of your Bagstilles in their new home, shopping at your favourite bakery, out & about on picnics or wherever they may venture!

/ WHY LINEN OVER COTTON?
Linen's hydrophilic properties enable it to absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture, keeping your bread fresher for longer
Linen is more breathable & stronger than cotton
Linen comes from flax plants & needs far less water & pesticide than cotton to be produced
Linen has a lower thread count & loose weave which is less likely to trap dust & particles, making it naturally hypoallergenic
Linen will keep looking & feeling amazing for years to come
