Why does bread harden?

Bread dries up in contact with air, because the water that it contains evaporates progressively and disappears. It becomes hard because it is dry.
As a result, its starch crystallizes, making bread lose its elasticity.
Often, to keep it humid and to conserve it for longer, it is kept in a tea towel.
