Natural Linen Bread Bags - Pack of 2
When you've baked the perfect loaf, where should you store it to keep it fresh? Forget plastic containers and bags - choose a linen fabric bread bag instead! These bags boast a large capacity so can be used to store loaves of various sizes.
Dirk was a pleasure to deal with, and sent my order out really promptly. Will be stoked to order from him again.
Excellent customer service and great quality products! Have ordered for my regular sourdough baking and am now keeping stock on hand for my classes. Highly recommended.
I got this lovely little lame along with the 'Zero' version. The service at Banneton Man is second to none - I messaged Dirk late in the evening to check if they were in stock and he came back straightaway. I needed them as soon as possible but was unsure about Express Post given the COVID postal delays. Dirk made sure they were posted the following day and sure enough they turned up in 24 hours. Can't fault anything; will buy from BM again.
Really enjoy using the banneton, my bread came out with beautiful crust!

All the equipment you need to create the perfect loaf
Baking is a fine art and you need the right tools to ensure you get the perfect final product. Banneton baskets - or proofing baskets - originated in France and are woven products that will ensure you get the best possible outcomes.
Our baskets are crafted from wood fibre or woven cane and assembled in a spiral shape which leaves an imprint on the dough and a high-quality end product. But the benefits of these banneton baskets go beyond simple aesthetics.
The baskets also absorb the moisture from the outside layer of the dough which means it won't be sticky after being baked. This also makes the outer layer easier to score during baking to open up the bread and also create further unique and beautiful designs.
The process is simple, you just dust the inside layer of your banneton baskets with flour to help wick the moisture off and create a nice skin for your bread while the shape also helps keep the dough in the form you want, preventing it from spreading out.
Then you simply transfer the dough from the banneton to your preferred bread baking equipment or tray and cook to perfection.
Banneton baskets to suit all kinds of bread making
We are proud to offer a range of options so that you can bake the perfect loaves of bread, rolls and baguettes in whatever shape you like. We also stock specialist bread baking tools to help you put together the perfect dough, to shape and craft patterns.
Our designs are handcrafted and provide the perfect cradle for your dough to proof and rise, ensuring that you won't have loose dough when it comes time to bake.
To use yours, moisten the rattan with a bit of water and dust the inside with flour and put your dough in upside down with the seam facing upwards.
You then cover the basket with a bag or cloth and allow it to prove and rise perfectly. Then simply flip the dough onto your tray and set your banneton aside for 24 hours when it will be ready to use again.
The difference between natural and synthetic bannetons
There are metal and plastic options on the market, but they don't do the job the way the authentic handcrafted rattan basket designs do.
Our products allow for the right amount of air circulation, which means the dough will be able to breathe on all sides so it won't lose its shape. The natural print on your dough from the handcrafted spirals are also much more appealing.
Once your beautiful loaf has been baked, we also stock natural linen bread bags that will help keep it perfectly fresh and moist for longer.
Our designs are the perfect accompaniment for any kitchen. They are suitable for professional bakers and also amateur home cooks who may be making bread for the first time in their life. They are simple to use, last for a long time and deliver perfect results time and time again. With our banneton baskets, you can rest assured that you'll always be serving the perfect loaf to your customers or family.
