Iron yarn (cotton blended), Leather Handle & Metal

During WWII Germany invented this "steel" yarn, achieved in a unique weaving method, the result being as strong as steel wires.  It was widely used in railway transportations. 

Now this original East German net bag is still in production, and renewed for the 2000s. This bag lasts. We first encountered this bag in 2006 at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum in NYC and our enthusiasm has not been depleted.

Unlike a canvas tote, it does not look shabby un-
chic in two months. You don't appear to be a possible shoplifter, as anyone can see through the bag and conversely, no secrets! You won't need to wash it biweekly and dirt and debris fall through. It expands to fit the longest baguette or your 8424 watermelon. The only caveat is: watch out with the tiny veggies! They tend to escape from the cage of the bag. Those sneaky fresh potatoes are the worst, and so is any tiny fruit, especially the really expensive ones! Bundles up really tight.  Please note, the yarn colours vary, the leather handle colour vary, we like each and every one.
