food safe fabric?

I am looking or food safe lining and am getting lots of varied results.  Is there any fabric that is classified as food safe for sandwich wraps?  Many thanks.

    I would like to know more of what it is your are trying to do with a food safe fabric?  It sounds as if you are trying to reuse and be more organic in your daily life.  This is a great thing.  Less waste.  The only thing that I can think of is washed, un-bleached or dyed muslin and a fine un-dyed silk.  You would need to wash these things every day that they have food in them to keep food particles from ingraining themselves into the fabric and molding.  Historically food was stored in earthen containers and some were even stored in woven bowels, check out Mayan culture and early American Indian culture.  Even some of the Natives of Alaska have woven bowels.  That being said, you need to take care that what you wash the fabric with will not get into your food and cause you to get sick.  You will only be able to reuse these items so many times before you just can’t use them anymore.  Recycled plastics would be a better choice because when your are done with them then you can recycle them again.  The process by which they are treated burns away any and all contaminates that would be on them even if you can’t see them.  I really would like to know more of what it is you are trying to do so please write back.  This is a very interesting subject and once I am back from New Zealand, (a very progressive country where recycling and conservation is concerned) I can do some more research and find some more answers for you.

    If this person has not responded, I can hazard a guess that they are trying to make reusable sandwich bags that are machine washable and dryable. Currently a lot of crafters are using PUL, ripstop nylon, and laminated fabrics. The general idea is there but most manufaturers say you could use these for that application but not origanally intended for such use. They further suggest lining the bag with cotton to insure no contact is made directly with the food but alas thats what we are all trying to avoid. Call it being lazy or thrifty none of us want to add that extra layer to our bags. Thanks for your time and consideration.
