lot8 started with a bread bag and kept going!
It's Simple to Use
Cut your slices from the centre of the loaf. Put the two halves together and pop them into the bread bag. Pull the drawstring. Your bread will stay fresh for up to 5 days.
Reduce Single-Use PlasticSave a Loaf
You know all about plastic and microplastics. Ditch the cling film for a bowl cover. Forgo the ziploc bag for a bread bag. And learn more about simple sustainable swaps in my monthly blog!
Keep Textiles from the LandfillBunting Garland
Even natural compostable fabric like linen and cotton doesn't belong in the landfill where they don't get enough oxygen to decompose. Instead, I use remnants to create smaller products such as the Bunting Garland (see the link below). The really tiny scraps get recycled at my local waste facility (check to see if this is available in your area). In addition, I love working with deadstock fabrics (think fabric samples from interior designers and perfectly good fabric left over from an upholstery job of office chairs). Why waste a good thing?

I bought one for my daughter who works around horses and gets the most peculiar boo boos.
It has been heated in the microwave and used as a heat pad for a jaw issue and will also be used as a cold pack for those times when she is annoyed by migraine.
I like everything about this little pillow.
This case is perfect for storing my glasses around the house when I am not using them. I bought the narrow, seafoam case and it’s such a pretty colour and looks great left out on my bedside table. I may need to purchase a second case for my sunglasses!
This is the nicest hot and cold therapy wrap that I have ever owned. It’s beautifully made and I love that it has a removable linen cover. It’s filled with walnut shells and lavender essential oil which gives it a very calming scent when heated and it’s a nice size for draping over my shoulders.
This was everything I was hoping it would be! It arrived quickly, and is beautiful. I tried it out for the first time last weekend, and it worked perfectly. Not only am I happy with my couche, but I feel good about purchasing from a company whose values align with mine.
We love these bags! They keep my sourdough breads, which I have been baking since long before the pandemic, beautifully fresh. We like the advice to cut a loaf from the middle, but sometimes find we make a messy cut. (I have ordered a better knife.) It helps if we place a small beeswax wrap against the cut edge before placing the loaf in the bag.
Apart from the fact that the bread stays fresh, these linen bags look great. They are beautifully made in Stratford, so the carbon footprint from the maker to our house in the Niagara Region is pretty small.
I'm thinking these will make great Christmas gifts for baking friends and family! Thank you!
Both the products and service are excellent. I had some questions prior to my purchase and they were answered promptly and helped me choose the right product. I love the bread bags. The bread bags are excellent. Thank you so much.
This is a staple for me!! I always get annoyed using my clunky, eyeglasses case - so this product helps me seek it out better in the midst of my purse contents, making it more convenient for me. With the softer fabric as well, I don’t have to be worried with scratching or snapping my glasses with the case!!
I am thrilled with my new linen tea towel. It not only dries the dishes super well it is pretty to look at. All the products from Lot8 are so well made.
The face cleansing cloths are soft and give a lovely gentle exfoliating when I wash with my face cleanser. My face feels so fresh and clean after washing with them. I have a loop on my cloths enabling me to hanging them so they dry quickly. I have two small buckets. One I use to store my face cleansing cloths and the other I have dinner napkins in on the table. These small buckets are so useful and pretty to look at.
These wonderful cloths are perfect for proofing my sourdough bread! The quality is incredible and the customer service was amazing!
My boys, Red and Blue, absolutely love Sam 😻. Even Blue who doesn’t really care for catnip thinks Sam is great! The best thing is that they can chew on them and nothing tears off for them to swallow, no choking or digestible parts. Thanks so much!
I have used my liner twice now when making sour dough bread. The dough doesn’t stick to it and I just shake the flour from it after use. It is a great additional to my baking supplies.
I bought the narrow sea foam case and my glasses fit perfectly. It doesn’t take up much room in my purse. Nice for summer days when I am switching from sunglasses to eyeglasses.
I love this bag! It is great to hold the “doggie poop” bags at the back door. Can be used to hold many others things and nice to look at as well.
What a beautiful apron and exactly what I needed. So grateful to find the perfect apron for me.
I love all the products that I have purchased from lot8. Everything is so well made. I needed a loop added to an item I ordered and it was done so quickly.
I love this company’s philosophy and so happy to find this Canadian company. I found lot8 through a post about some of their items for sale in another company’s newsletter. The items were not in stock with that company so instead I searched online for lot8 and ordered from them directly. So happy that I did.
I even found a great charity to support through lot8. What an amazing charity!
I highly recommend all the items I have purchased from lot8. Everything is very durable. And my son in law loves it when I gift him items from here. He is a great cook and cheers when I send him their products ( especially their bread bags which he loves).
Keep up the great work! Shipping is fast and the owner quickly responds to my concerns. Thanks Kim for all that you do. :)
