When it comes to choosing a fabric type for printed eco bags
you are spoilt for choice. If you are not sure where to start, then read this
handy guide below to find out more about the different eco bags.
Cotton is a soft material that grows around the seeds of
cotton plant and it’s the perfect for printing as the material is so easy to
print onto, and you can often opt for dyed cotton that is an exact match to
your brand colours.
With cotton bags there is no limit on the print area, which
means there are no limits on your design options either as we can offer
complete edge-to-edge printing.
Jute material is made from woven vegetable fibre that is
strung into coarse, strong threads and is the perfect fabric choice if you want
a strong and long-lasting bag for heavier items.
To make them even more durable you can add sturdy handles
and lamination to the inside to make the bags waterproof. Jute bags are very
distinct in their appearance with thick natural fibres, so are great if you
want a natural look for your bags.
Canvas is a sturdy material made from cotton or linen. It offers
much of the same benefits of cotton, as it is easy to print on and lightweight
to carry. However, it is naturally thicker and tougher than cotton, making it a
more durable option.
Prolypropylene bags can either be non-woven or woven. NWPP
(non-woven polypropylene) is a lightweight but strong material made from a
by-product of oil manufacturing, it is a far more eco-friendly option compared
to plastic bags as it is 100% recyclable. These bags can be printed
with any colour and design.
The woven PP bags are waterproof and super strong as they go
through a lamination process, so they are great for a more vibrant look.
This is a basic outline of the type of materials that you
can use for your eco bags. For more advice on
