Hello to all Kialla Organics customers (and Kialla Organics !)
Has anyone taken note of the wonderful calico bags which contain the most lovely organic grains and flours that Kialla provides ?
We at Boomerang Bags have !
Boomerang Bags works to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities in the making of Boomerang Bags – community made using recycled materials, Boomerang Bags provide a free, fun, sustainable alternative to plastic bags.
We would very much like to recollect as many Kialla calico bags as possible and to re-imagine them into Boomerang Bags. Please get in contact with us should you have any empty bags or know of a way we may be able to collect them from fellow Kialla customers.

We love this idea Mireille! People often write in and let us know how they reuse their calicos. I think we should post your initiative across our social media too.August 17, 2018 at 1:09 pm #6022
Disappointed that the calico bags seem to have vanished from Woolworths, Flannerys – and everywhere else I shop. I’ve been using Kialla flour on and off for at least 20 years and have just got back into home bake bread. I don’t buy things that have been sitting in plastic. Are the calico bags still around anywhere?

they are still available in 1kg for Rolled Oats & 5kg in many of the flours. We haven’t sold in Woolworths for many years. However if you can’t find them at your local Flannerys I suggest you ask them to order these products. They order from us according to their customer demand.
We dropped the products we had in 2kg bags because not enough shops were stocking them/ not enough people buying them. We have only ever done the Oats in 1kg bags, no other products. One of the main reasons we do the smaller products in the plastic is because it is very challenging for many stores to keep our calicos pest free – all those greeblies that love organic flours (since they are chemical free) also love the oxygen that gets through the calico weave so unfortunately calicos are not pest-proof.
Soon we hope to have an online shop so you would be able to buy direct from us online – and all calico products will be available.
