Upcycled Produce Bags (2 pcs)
Set of two (2( upcycled produce bags use scrap or under-utilized fabric helps keep produce crisp and fresh.
Once home from the market, spray any leafy greens, drip off any excess water, and put them into produce bag while damp. The fabric absorbs this water and contains moisture (similar to wet paper towels) that protects refrigerated greens from dehydration and wilting. This method works best for leafy greens and delicate produce such as lettuce, spinach, chard, kale, basil, parsley, cilantro, herbs, and green beans.

The Retaso Collection spreads happiness from the makers, (our partner artisans and seamstress) to the hands of our customers. It starts with the weavers, who create every inch of these pieces with their hands, then are made into different products by our seamstress. Sometimes, some of our products need to be cut, and at the tail-end of our production cycle, we return to these fabric cuttings (retaso) and these are reimagined into new products by our seamstress herself.
Each piece from this series is unique. It takes time and effort to create these handmade pieces. This series passes on the imagination and creativity of our makers to the customers with utmost joy.
This is in line with our commitment to reduce textile wastage, creating operational and design efficiency with the fabrics, but also optimizing the lifespan and value of every handmade fabric.
Hand wash at 40°C. If machine wash is preferred, use a warm low spin cycle.
Hang damp from line or bar. It is better for the fabric and for the environment. Tumble drying is not recommended, but if necessary, use a Delicate/Gentle cycle setting.
