FAQ

How is the recycled material made?

The recycled material used in these drawstring bags has been produced from a mix of would-be waste materials. They are broken down and re-processed to produce new material. These waste materials include used clothes, off-cuts from the production of garments, recycled yarn, regenerated fabrics and even PET bottles. By extending the life cycle of textiles, we can help to reduce the environmental impact arising from the production of raw materials like cotton. On average, it takes 10,000 litres of water to produce one kilogram of cotton. The production of our drawstring bags is authorised and audited by the Textile Exchange organisation. It is based on the global Recycled Claim Standard (RCS).

What makes this cotton organic?

The organic cotton used in these muslin bags has been produced from plant-based raw materials that have been cultivated according to strict organic agricultural standards. This means the removal of artificial inputs from the production process. These include toxic chemicals, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), inorganic fertilizers, pesticides and antibiotics. On a broader level, it involves a commitment to a type of production that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people through the use of natural processes. A mix of age-old farming techniques and modern science goes into upholding these standards and promoting the most efficient production methods. Organic materials require careful packaging and proper markings/labels featuring certification codes. These muslin bags are manufactured as per the ECO PASSPORT certificate. It is administered and controlled by the international textiles standards organisation, OEKO-TEX®

How can I use these bags?

The size, organic look and drawstring enclosure make these muslin bags ideal for jewellery, handicrafts, soaps, candles, pre-packaged dry goods and even gifts for wedding guests or other events. TIP: they look great tucked away in subscription boxes, invitation boxes or presentation boxes.

Are these bags the same as tote bags?

While the material is similar, muslin bags are a little different to cotton bags and tote bags. Muslin bags are usually smaller with drawstrings. That makes them resemble more like pouches. The main difference between our muslin bags and other cotton bags on the market revolves around materials. These muslin bags are made from either organic cotton or recycled textiles. The material is both breathable and dustproof. This is a rare combination, especially compared to bags made from leather or other natural materials.

How can I customize these bags?

First, your options begin with materials and colours. Choose either the natural grey muslin bag made from recycled textiles or the natural white option made from organic cotton. High-quality screen printing in Pantone (phthalate-free ink) will cover all your branding needs. As add-ons, you can also request sewn internal or external pockets and bespoke tags.

How big is the print area?

It depends on a few factors. You can print on just about every inch of the surface on both sides if you request full customization and have your bags made from scratch. Just keep in mind that this option might extend the lead times. Whereas, the print area reduces for screen printing as designs need to be centred. Reach out during the quoting process and our packaging experts can take you through your options.

What sizes are available?

Sizing is customizable for these drawstring bags. But there is also a standard size available, which is 15x20cm.
