How is the recycled material made?
The recycled material used in these tote bags is made up of 96% recycled cotton and 4% recycled polyester. They are sourced from waste materials (e.g., used clothes and fabric off-cuts) and re-processed into the final product used in the bags. The production of our recycled tote bags is authorised and audited by the Textile Exchange organisation based on the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). The material complies with the Fairtrade Standards and FLOCERT certification. On top of that, the ink used to print our tote bags is verified and backed by the ECO PASSPORT from OEKO-TEX®.
What makes this organic cotton?
The organic cotton used in these tote bags has been produced from raw cotton that has been cultivated according to strict organic agricultural standards. This means the removal of artificial inputs from the production process, such as 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. These tote bags are manufactured as per the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The material complies with the Fairtrade Standards and FLOCERT certification. The ink used to print our tote bags is verified and backed by the ECO PASSPORT from OEKO-TEX®.
How can I use these printed cotton bags?
Printed cotton bags tick multiple boxes for various applications and products. First up, they are multiple-use carrier bags used in brick-and-mortar shops. They can be used to sell everything from clothing & accessories to electronics, groceries and much more. The long lifecycle not only makes them an eco-friendly alternative to single-use bags but also ensures that your branding on your tote bags remains in circulation for longer. For this same reason, they’re also great for in-store promotions and giveaways. They can be used as gift packaging for events and corporate conferences. You can also include them in subscription box packaging.
Do you provide express production for this product?
Sure. You’ll be able to see all your production/delivery options and times at check out.
Can I order these bags in another size?
At this stage, these tote bags are only available in one size: 38x41cm. The recycled bags come with a 63cm handle and the handles on the organic bags are 72cm. For more sizing options, feel free to check out the Printed Cotton Bag at Packhelp Plus.
Why is there a 1.5 cm size tolerance?
These tote bags are hand-sewn and like with any manual process, some level of variation in sizes may occur. That’s why we suggest factoring in a tolerance of 1.5cm (plus or minus) as a precaution.
Can I print on both sides of these tote bags?
Yep. By default, the cost of a print on one side (25x25cm print area) is included in the price. But as an add-on, you can select to have both sides printed.
Can I print on the inside of these bags?
Afraid not. These bags can only be printed on the outside of the material.
What is the print area?
Your design can be printed within an area of 25x25cm. You can create your design by using our online Editor or download the tote bag’s dieline to produce your design in a graphic design programme of your choice. When uploading your dieline, it’s best to use vector formatted files, such as PDF or AI.
Can these bags be washed?
Yes, but we recommend only hand washing them at a maximum of 30°C.
How eco-friendly are these personalised tote bags?
First up, the tote bags are made from either 100% organic cotton or recycled textiles (96% cotton, 4% polyester). The organic cotton bags are manufactured as per the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), while the recycled tote bags are backed by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) issued by the Textile Exchange. Both types comply with the Fairtrade Standards and FLOCERT certification. The ink used to print our tote bags is verified and backed by the ECO PASSPORT from OEKO-TEX®.
What do these bags weigh?
The weight of these tote bags depends on the size of the print area. But as a guide, a bag printed on one side weighs around 70g while a bag printed on two sides weighs around 90g.
What colours do these bags come in?
