This cotton net tote has no shape or form, but expands to fit what you need to carry: from produce picked from the local farmers market or your beach day book and blanket. The bag is woven by a French net company that has been weaving nets and braiding ropes and candle wicks since 1855. Because the bags have no structure, they pack away small, taking up very little space when not in use.

Use & Care

The bag can be used for nearly anything and everything. It’s made from a cotton knit and can handily transport a wet pair of swimming trunks or damp vegetables. If taken for a day at the beach, the airy netting will keep your belongings in, but the sand will fall right out.

The cotton net bag can be washed on the gentle cycle in the washing machine and air dried to prevent shrinkage.

Production & Design


This cotton net bag derives from the needs of fishermen and huntsmen from as far back as the 17th century. Locals in northwestern France relied on Norman peasants to hand knit bags and accessories for expeditions and everyday work. In 1860, a French family brought together the expertise of the local artisans and founded their company, making products by hand. Beginning in 1944, the company expanded and mechanized in order to fulfill large scale orders.

The family-owned company specializes in knitting nets and braiding cords used for commercial fishing, the food industry, boats, hunters and automobiles, so their bags can probably handle whatever you may throw at them or in them.
