Which eco fabric is best for your printed bags?

When it comes to choosing a material for your printed bags you’re spoilt for choice! We’ve put together a short guide to help you choose the best fabric depending on your requirements for your eco bags.


If it needs to be organic

Expert eco bag manufacturers will be able to supply you with organic cotton or canvas bags in a range of sizes. To ensure you are getting a product that is organic, make sure they are GOTS Certified, as this means they are ethical and environmentally friendly.

This sends a positive message to your customers and ensures bags which are both eco-friendly and of the highest quality.

For those looking for biodegradable bags, both cotton and canvas are fully biodegradable, and are made from naturally grown fibres.


If it needs to be lightweight

Cotton is the perfect material for you if the weight of the bags is your priority. Cotton bags are great for personalisation, as they can be printed on to in a variety of ways to create a bag that is bespoke to your business. For something that is light but a bit more durable and water-resistant, non-woven polypropylene (NWPP) fabric is an ideal choice.


If it needs to be waterproof

If you need a bag that can withstand anything then an obvious choice is woven polypropylene (WPP). This material material is fully waterproof and tear-resistant, and its strength and durability means that it is perfect for heavier loads.


If it needs to be recyclable

For the ultimate green option, recycled PET bags are not only recyclable but are already a recycled fabric, made from recycled plastic bottles!

Otherwise, woven and non-woven polypropylene bags are also 100% recyclable.


To ensure you are getting the best material for you, make sure you contact an expert manufacturer for your printed bags. They will be able to help you make the right choice based on how the bags are intended to be used, and the design that you require.
