Announcement   AN ALTERNATIVE TO THROW-AWAY PLASTIC BAGS
I am a textile artist and clothing designer who saw the need for an alternative to throw-away plastic bags when buying bulk food and produce in my local natural food store.
Kootsac bags are lightweight, strong, washable and reusable and are designed to hold nuts, grains, flours, spices, herbs, dried fruit and even produce.
Bulk food bags are available in ripstop nylon or 100% natural silk. Produce bags are made of ripstop nylon or 100% cotton.

KOOTSAC BAGS ARE MADE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND LIGHTEST WEIGHT RIPSTOP NYLON: Weigh the same as plastic bags so no extra cost at the check-out, and they last for years.

Natural silk bags are all packaged in recycled sewing pattern paper and tied with repurposed satin seam binding which makes pretty bows. I love to collect and reuse vintage sewing tools and notions and sometimes they find other uses like this.

About

Nature is my motivation

'Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair'. ~ Kahlil Gibran ~

My ancestors, who came from everywhere and who wandered everywhere, finally produced me in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa. Five years later we loaded up the old wagon and went to live on the coast of South Africa.
I grew up a bare foot child on sandy beaches and thorny African bushveldt. I had a little garden as a child and spent much of my days outdoors. When it was rainy or cold I made things with my hands. I made dolls of fabric scraps,crocheted hats and invented games with my siblings. We had no television.

After graduating from college in Fine Arts as a painter and print maker I decided to travel. I met a Canadian along the way who became my life partner and I now live in this beautiful Northern country. Our home here in the mountainous Kootenay region of British Columbia is very different from the land of my birth but having the earth beneath my feet and being surrounded by nature has always been essential to my happiness.

We grow a lot of our own vegetables, berries and herbs and much of our grains and other dry food we buy from the bulk food section of our local natural food stores. I invented these Kootsac bags five years ago as an alternative to the throwaway plastic bags that kept coming home with our food. My preference has always been to work with natural fibers but ripstop nylon turned out to be the best material for the purpose and I am still using the bags I first made five years ago. I also offer them in natural silk for bulk food and cotton with screen printed butterflies and bees for produce.
