June 2019 — Kismet Six Linens has been at the Bracebridge Farmer’s Market for four weeks now, and lots of you have purchased them. Even some who I don’t know. 🙂

Opening time, Bracebridge Farmer’s Market, June 8, 2019.

Congratulations for making a great choice! In case I did not tell you on the spot; Kismet Six Linens is a new venture, and as an early adopter, you are a beta tester! I’d really like your feedback as you get used to them.

How do they work? How do they make you feel?

General Impressions: Of course I hope you love them. But I want to hear either way. Are they living up to your expectations? Please tell me why or why not. Are they helping you eliminate plastic from your crisper/kitchen/home? Are they inspiring you to stay on the long and sometimes tedius road to a greener lifestyle?

Specifics: How are you using them? Are they for your fridge only? Do you take them to the store? Would you like to see a different fabric or design? Would you like them for additional vegetables?

Here’s some of the feedback I’ve heard so far;

  1. You’ve asked why these are wraps (flats) instead of bags.
    • Versatility is the short answer. When I was prototyping, I found that pre-made bags tended to be either too big or too small, and they didn’t tend to wrap as tidily as I would like. It’s very easy to turn wraps into bags using a Japanese technique called Furoshiki. Check out my video How to Turn Wraps into Bags Using Furoshiki Technique. Give it a try. Tell me if it does or doesn’t work.
  2. A couple of people have said they are too big.
    • How do you feel about the size of your Kismet Six wraps? Please tell me what vegetable you have them for and whether they are, in the words of Goldilocks, too big, too small, or just right.

What works for me may not be what works for you. If the same themes keep emerging I am eager to alter the design. Functionality is key.

Also, is there a vegetable you use that you’d love a Kismet Six linen for? Let me know and I’ll see if I can rustle that up.

Congratulations again for being among the first to purchase Kismet Six, and for being part of the movement away from single-use plastic and for being a beta tester for this new concept! I look forward to hearing from you.
