These net bags are made by a French textile company called Filt, in Normandy, France. They have been making net bags since 1860. Net bags have traditionally been used to carry fruits, vegetables and other food home from the market and grocery stores. This was the time before plastic bags were introduced. Filt-net bags are cute, light-weight and durable. It is always handy to carry a net bag along in case of surprises! On the product tag you can find the name of the seamstress who made the bag.
