Ecological cotton bags

Cotton is an unbleached natural ecological product and has a natural ecru colour. The strong material ensures that the consumer will reuse the cotton bags more often, for this reason it can certainly be called a sustainable carrier bag. You can also opt for Fairtrade® certified, GOTS® certified or recycled cotton. 

Material of cotton bags

Cotton bags are originally made of unbleached natural cotton. This has an ecru / off-white colour. The quality is 120 grams (4 Oz.) cotton. The cotton material can be coloured in any PANTONE® colour. The quality is 140 grams (5 Oz.) coloured cotton. Thicker qualities of cotton are also possible, this is called canvas. Feel free to inquire about the possibilities.

Printing cotton bags

Cotton bags can be printed in PANTONE® colours or in full colour. From a simple print in one colour on the front and back to a full print in full colour. When printed in one or more printing colours, the bags are printed by means of screen printing. Do you have a full colour design? Depending on the logo and the desired delivery time, the cotton bags are shipped by means of transfer printing, sublimation printing or digital print. 
  • Screen printing 
    Screen printing is the most commonly used printing technique for printing cotton bags. Only full PANTONE® colours are possible. The advantage of screen printing is that this printing technique ensures a colourfast and good covering print. The PANTONE® colour can also be printed well on a coloured background because the ink is quite thick on the bag. 
  • Transfer printing
    With transfer printing it is possible to print a full colour image or logo on the cotton bags. First, the design is printed on foil and this is then applied to the bag. This makes the printing tangible. 
  • Sublimation printing
    Sublimation printing is only possible on white polycotton material. The material is made of 80% cotton and 20% plastic. The great advantage of sublimation printing is that with this printing technique a full colour image can be perfectly printed on the cotton material. This print cannot be felt and can also be washed. 
  • Digital print
    With digital print, the cotton bags are printed in full colour in high speed. This can be done on both natural ecru cotton and white coloured cotton. The colours are less bright and a bit fainter than with the above printing techniques. The biggest advantage is the speed of digital printing. The colour of the material affects the print. With a non-white background, the print will saturate with the colour of the material. 

Models of cotton bags 

The cotton bags usually come with shoulder straps of about 78 cm. This can be in the natural colour of the material itself but can also be coloured in any desired PANTONE® colour. Do you prefer a length where you can carry the bag in your hand? Then we recommend a length of 50 cm. The linen bags can be made in a flat variant. If you are looking for a cotton bag with more depth, you can choose the custom-made cotton tote bag. This variant has a bottom fold. For even more depth, the bag can be equipped with a bottom and side fold, also known as a block bottom. This design is recommended for shoe boxes or other large products.
