BEAUTIFUL, SUSTAINABLE & LONG-LASTING HOMEWARE
The Forager's Cottage
The summer lockdown in 2020 had us all spending more time at home, taking up new hobbies and refining old ones. For us, we spent a lot of time learning how to bake loaves, pittas, rolls, muffins and more. Making us (and our neighbours) a little bit fatter in the process!
We quickly needed a solution to keep our home-baked goods fresher for longer. After scouring the internet, reading reviews of bread storage options and asking friends and family, we discovered that we should be using bread bags.
We started designing a bread bag to look good in any kitchen and reduce food waste - a project which included commissioning an artist, testing different fabrics and sourcing sustainable packaging. After a few months of product development, we launched The Forager's Cottage in June with the Wheat Fields Bread Bag - sustainable cotton bags that keep bread fresher for longer, feature a hand-drawn illustration and arrives at your door in plastic-free, biodegradable packaging.
We plan to work with more talented artists, bringing together their illustrations with a range of sustainable homeware items. If you'd like to work with us please get in touch through our Contact Us page.
