The shopping net, which was created several decades ago, was a resounding success when it was created. Strong and practical, the housewife used it a lot for shopping. After a lull after the war, it has recently returned in force and invites itself into our interior thanks to the Norman company Filt, which has been designing and manufacturing food nets for 150 years. Let's decipher this fashion and decoration phenomenon together!
The history of the shopping net
Since its creation, the usefulness of the shopping net has changed a bit. At the beginning it was used exclusively to deposit its shopping between the trip from the market to home. However, he never changed his method of creation, 100% cotton, and remains the symbol of the French Touch '. With its 100% French manufacturing, Filt produces 120,000 copies of shopping nets every year, redistributed worldwide. It can be found on sale at the Merci concept store in Paris, at the Conran Shop in London or at the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York. A little forgotten in the aftermath of the war, we have been witnessing since last summer a revival of this vintage object which arouses lust.
The shopping net as a decorative object, and it rhymes!
Riding on the wave of neo-retro, the shopping nets are adorned with flashy colors for the modern side or remain neutral for enthusiasts of authenticity. This basic accessory spends time without aging: always light, solid and easy to transport! After having seen it on fashionistas in the streets of big cities, we now find it on our kitchen walls or even in the living room or bedroom as an object of decoration. Decorative tip: unlike plastic bags that you store in a corner or that you throw away, the mesh bag hangs on a coat hook or on the handle of a kitchen furniture to proudly display its fresh fruits or vegetables.
