Whether you’re after a bag to love or a Bag for Life we think you’ll find the answer in our extensive range of cotton, canvas, jute and numerous other environmentally-friendly bags. Whatever the material, we strive for the very best for our customers.
All of our wholesale cotton bags are ethically traded, and we are always looking to minimise environmental impact. For instance:
- We will only work with manufacturers who share our high ethical and environmental standards. Our partner factories are SEDEX or SA8000 compliant.
- We use eco-friendly water-based inks to colour and print our cotton, canvas and jute bags.
- Our coloured cotton, canvas and jute bags are dyed with eco-friendly Azo-free dyes.
- We will only use renewable raw materials in our (non-cotton) fabric bags.
Cotton is a perfect bag material. All of our plain cotton bags are made from naturally grown, ethically sourced cotton fibres. They’re lightweight and can be folded flat. We carry a large stock in various sizes and colours.
Canvas gives more sturdiness and durability than cotton. All of our canvas bags are made from naturally grown, ethically sourced cotton fibres. While more robust, they can still be folded flat. Their repeated reusability makes them a hugely popular choice with retailers and shoppers alike.
Organic Cotton & Canvas
Increasingly, many of our customers are asking for organic cotton and canvas bags. They want to be sure of the provenance of the bags they order. We can provide bags made from material certified 100% organic by the supplier mills we work with. A little more money guarantees quality and organic production peace of mind.
If it’s toughness you’re after, look no further: jute is the material for you. The coarser woven texture of jute makes finely printed detail more difficult to achieve, but what it lacks in finesse it more than makes up for in brute strength!
More and more people are coming to know about juco. It’s a fabric which blends the best properties of cotton and jute: a close-enough weave which can handle more intricate printing, but the rugged spinach-eating strength of jute.
Non Woven Polypropylene
As ‘Bag for Life’ candidates go, NWPP ticks all the boxes. It’s a heavy-duty but lightweight fabric which is fully recyclable and water-resistant. It’s a type of thermoplastic polymer (that means it can be melted down, recycled and used again). It’s just one step away from the bio-based plastics at the best end of the Greenpeace pyramid of plastics.
Another super-eco-friendly option from us. PET bags are made from recycled plastic bottles. As with NWPP, a durable, water-resistant and environmentally-friendly option.
Woven polypropylene, like it’s non-woven counterpart, is a heavy-duty but lightweight fabric which is fully recyclable and water-resistant. The woven construction means that this style of fabric is tougher still and also tear-resistant. It’s particularly well suited to heavy loads.
