During the 17th century in Normandy, France near Mount Saint-Michel, French peasants began making netting for fishing, sports, hammocks, and market bags. Filt was formed in 1860 and continues to uphold its quality and tradition in each piece. Each bag is strong, expandable, practical, and ecological. The fibers are dyed using Oeko-Tex 100 standards then knitted and stitched in Caen, France. 100% cotton.
