The perfect grocery bag

The Avoska String Bag: a lightweight bag perfect for carrying your daily essentials while on the go. 

String bags have been used by many cultures in history. As our dear clients Valeria & Karina told us, string bags were popular in Russia and other former USSR republics where they were called "avoska" (Russian: авоська), which may be translated as "what if bag". The bag you always keep with you "just in case".  


Since 1860, these Parisian-style net bags have been used in France, Holland and Germany to gather provisions from markets and grocery stores. It is amazing that these remarkably practical “filets” are still relevant and still in use today. Strong, stretchy, compact and useful… just the way you like it.

Unbleached, Natural, Zero Waste, 100% cotton bag:

  • Different colors available (Salmon, Pink Punk, Ocean Blue, Green, Natural Beige, and many more)

As the fashion blogger/instagramer Aemilia Madden puts it "Not only does the simple market tote make it easy to carry around my daily necessities (photogenic fruit included, of course), but it's also easy to stow away as an extra bag for later. It's perfect for the beach—no residual sand stuck in the bottom—but is chic enough to bring to the office. And while you may feel more protective over an expensive leather bag, it's guaranteed this style can handle whatever your daily activities may be."
