Cotton, Calico & Canvas Bags
Cotton is a beautiful natural fibre originating from India. We make many styles of bags from various weight cotton fabrics depending on the purpose of the bag. Lighter weight cotton fabrics are used for tote bags where as heavier weights are used for grocery bags. Calico is a lightly woven cotton fabric and canvas is tightly woven on the diagonal to produce a stronger and more durable fabric which is often preferred in bag manufacturing.
Cotton Bags are some of the most popular for brands because of the natural look and durability of the fabric and the affordable price point. Cotton, calico and canvas are generally machine washable or easy to wipe down with a cloth or sponge. Many of our canvas bags come with an internal lamination to reduce moisture being absorbed into the fabric.
Cotton gives the appearance of being just what it is – a natural and ecological material with the end product likely to last for years, and hundreds of uses.
Simple designs in bold colours print beautifully on cotton and a range of coloured cotton fabrics are also available to choose from.
Canvas Bags are a step up from lighter weight cotton in terms of strength and durability. They make great long lasting tote and carry bags, but also makes great fabric for grocery bags, beach bags and much more.
Canvas is a beautiful plain-woven fabric. It was traditionally made from hemp but is now most commonly made from cotton.
As well as carrying groceries, canvas also makes a beautiful outer material for wine bottles, gift bags, clothing bags and much more.
Our canvas tote and canvas carry bags can be waxed which makes it water repellent bags. This is ideal for brands in wet or damp environments or for brands that would like their bags to double as beach bags or swimming bags in every day life.
