Where are Aussie Bread Bags made?
We’re proud to say Aussie Bread Bags are 100% Australian designed and made. We source the bags locally and then I, along with a local seamstress alter them as necessary to then be printed locally and hand packaged by myself in Avoca Beach.
What are they made from?
Calico and the double drawstring is cotton.
What size bags do you have?
We offer two sizes.
Our 'smaller' Aussie Bread Bag measures approx 30cm x 14 x 14cm (with a squared bottom), give or take a centimetre as they’re hand made. This size is suitable to your standard block loaf or fresh bread rolls.
Our 'larger' Aussie Bread Bag measures approx 40cm x 16 x 14cm (with a squared bottom), and are suitable for larger loaves such as sourdough, high tin loaves, & cobs. They can also be used for fresh produce.
Do the bags prolong shelf life?
No. They are not designed to extend the shelf life of your usual bread, but won't allow moulding (as plastic does) because the fabric lets the bread breathe.
Are the bags freezer safe?
Yes, Aussie Bread Bags are freezer safe, therefore portions can be split, frozen & thawed when necessary. This is great if you feel you’re not going to consume the whole loaf within a few days.
As the bags can breathe, when the bread thaws, you also eliminate any chance of moisture in the bag creating soggy bread.
How often do the bags need cleaning?
This would be determined on a case by case scenario. If treated well, the bags are usually fine with just a 'shake out’ of the crumbs between uses, and washed every month or so, but if they are accidentally smeared through jam on the bench top for example, we encourage them to be cleaned between uses.
They are machine washable too, which is always handy.
How much is shipping? Do you ship internationally?
Shipping within Australia has a flat rate of $3.30 and is shipped with AusPost (not tracked or insured). International shipping is priced upon checkout, or please see our Shipping & Returns menu for this info.
