Best bread wrap?

Hello, I love both the Linen Bread Bags and the Bee's Bread Wrap on the Provisions site. Which is better to store bread (primarily, sourdough or similar bread)?

Brown paper bags. The best.

The linen bag is better. My reasons are: you don't want your bread in an airtight wrap, as this will cause moisture to soften the crust and create the atmosphere that mold thrives in; you can reheat your bread in the linen bag with your oven on low but not recommended for the wax paper; also, if you are unfortunate enough to have bread start to mold, you'll appreciate the ability to wash that linen bag in super hot water. A paper bag, brown or otherwise, has the same breath-ability as the linen bag, but you can't wash it either.
