Hessian makes ideal potato sacks as these pictures show.
Hessian is a strong, robust fibre but air can pass through the woven material.
Potatoes store better if air can circulate through the bags, blowing away any stale air.
Moisture produced by the potatoes (sweat) can escape through the hessian, so the potatoes do not become wet or moist.
The bags must be stored in the dark, so that light does not reach the potatoes, which would make them turn green.
