Organic Cotton Vs Eco-Friendly (Oeko-Tex Certified) Cotton

Cotton is a natural material that is lightweight, durable, breathable and biodegradable.

Unfortunately, most cotton is grown and manufactured with chemicals and other substances that can harm the environment and human health.

Choosing products made with cotton that hasn’t been subjected to toxic substances is best. Organic cotton and Oeko-Tex certified cotton are two options to consider.

Cotton – Why We Cherish It So Much

Cotton – the world’s most used material – is an amazing plant.
We learned to use all its parts, from the fibre for cloth making to the seeds which are the source of oil that is used in food industry. Its leftovers: meal and hull are used to feed farm animals.
Just look around – our t-shirts, underwear, bed linen, towels, and many other things are made from cotton.
This is because cotton fabric has so many qualities like being breathable, highly absorbent, durable and non-allergic.

It has also become popular for making bags as it is strong and very easy to sew and its absorbent qualities make it a great material for dyeing and printing.
We truly believe that a cotton bag is nature at its best – natural product that is fully recyclable and eco-friendly.

Why You Would Not Be Able to Find Prices on Our Website

We don’t provide quotes on the website simply because all our products are customized, and prices may change depending on the quantity, size of the product and your specific requirements.

Showing prices means there is a single product type – however we make our products to our customers specifications, and these requirements can mean a variation in the cost. A single product price would simply be inaccurate.

Feel free to email us directly with your request, and we will be more than pleased to work on your product and prices for you.

Have a beautiful day,

Cross vs. Non-Cross Stitched Handles

Most of the tote bags have CROSS STITCHED handles which is a traditional way of sewing the straps to the bags.
We have recently processed a few orders for the bags with NON-CROSS STITCHED handles and since it turned out to be such a success we are happy to present it to the world.
This elegant option is especially recommended in the designs with edge to edge printing.
