Reusable fabric produce bags recommendations

I am looking for reusable fabric produce bags. They look similar to laundry bags, but have a drawstring instead of a zipper. The produce bags on amazon seem over-priced. Anyone got recommendations?

The RCSS plastic produce bags rip before I leave the store (try putting yams in them!). They r not fit for purpose!

Take your old jeans and sew them together to make your own ... extremely durable material and washable.
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.

Check out "grocery nylon drawstring bag" on aliExpress https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?ca ... string+bag They are probably the same products.

Nylon is incredibly strong...I have these ones for carrying my groceries https://www.aliexpress.com/item/High-ca ... 2e0edKmR5H and I highly recommend them. They are big but fold up really small and are very lightweight and they are very strong (though I haven't put more than 25lbs in one yet.)

Agree. Denim rocks. That's a better option if you're looking for reusable and eco-friendly product. And if you don't have a sewing machine (or a local sewing club), it's possible to make one with basic hand sewing skills.
I made two bags by myself, basic ones with straps, but I don't think that it'd be harder to make a bag with a drawstring. Something like this https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/durable ... ag-2977439 would work.
