What is string bag?
In the distant past of the Soviet Union, a shopping net bag woven from stern threads was very popular. Exactly this bag was called fishnet bag and it became a symbol of a whole era. Such bag was a familiar attribute of every citizen. It is weightless, it can fold up to the size of a small glomerulus and when folded it fits easily into a pocket or handbag.
The raw material for fishnet bag weaving is a thin braid, soutache, nylon (polyamide) or very durable threads. A traditional bag is a mesh woven from 14 rows, each of which consists of 24 cells. Strong weaving increases its carrying capacity up to 70 kg. To prevent the handles of the bag from cutting into palms, manufacturers began to tie them up with rubber tubes and equip them with special hooks for hanging over the edge of furniture or a handrail in public transport.
However, people went not only to the store for food with a string bag. Resourceful people managed to find many uses for such bag. For example it perfectly stored vegetables, onions, garlic. Many people used the string bag as a washcloth because it was woven from natural cotton. In winter, perishable products were hung in a bag outside of the window, so they do not spoil. Boys also willingly used the bag and made rings for basketball. Inventive men successfully used a retro bag for catching crayfish or kept in it caught fish. Currently the string bag was replaced by colorful bags, they look more modern and opaque.
Often, leaving the store, you may encounter a problem when the sharp corners of the packaging of the goods violate the integrity of the plastic bag, tearing it, while in the string bag there are holes. The fishnet bag is dimensionless, it fits everything that you decided to buy. It can be washed in a washing machine, at the same time it will not lose a form and the bright paints. You can also find some disadvantages in this multifunctional invention. All the contents of the bag is easily transparent, as well as the possibility of losing small things, if they are there.
