About the Keeki Bag
To some, baking bread is a craft an integral part of their nutrition and life. Purchasing special loaves of bread to enjoy later, and waking up to having fresh bread is a tradition to some. But while purchasing and baking bread may seem like a leisurely past time, it’s important to make sure that the bread you invest your time and money on is always fresh and lasts the longest that it can. As a home baker, Nancy understood the beauty and dedication that comes with baking bread, but a problem she constantly faced was learning how to properly store her loaves so that they maintain their freshness to enjoy. Thus, the Keeki bad was created. The Keeki bag is a plastic-free natural way to store your bread. The genius of the product lies in its use of being lined with beeswax in a linen bag. The bag features a wide opening and a closing drawstring for easy access and use. This allows the bread to breathe, rather than being wound up in a plastic bag. The Keeki bag makes sure that your loaves don’t hold a lot of moisture in and does not encourage mold, but still keeps the bread from drying out.
Our Toronto Product Development Studio’s Work on the Keeki Bag
One of the greatest assets about working with a Toronto Product Development Studio, such as Mako Design is that we are available to help you at any stage of your design or invention process. For Nancy’s case, she approached Mako Design with a prototype and concept design ready in hand! The idea of the Keeki Bag was a genius to us and was a simple, effective way to solve a common problem that many people face when purchasing bread. Our industrial designer at our Toronto Product Development Studio, Paul Davis, took on the project to help Nancy with the packaging design and sourcing of the materials needed for her product to be ready for its market debut! Since the release of her product, we were astounded to see how amazingly successful her product has become and are proud of all her accomplishments that the Keeki Bag has achieved.
