What is Calico & Why is it Ideal for Bags?

Thursday, 5 December 2019 2:40:10 PM Australia/Sydney

You might have noticed a recent trend towards logo printed calico bags in Australia. Part of this owes to the ban on single-use plastic bags in supermarkets, but there are a lot of options to replace these disposable items. The reason custom calico bags are leading the pack is the fact they're made from a natural fibre, cotton.

Why is Cotton Such a Popular Material?

Cotton calico is a popular option for shopping and tote bags because cotton is a natural material that lasts a long time, but doesn't cost a huge amount of money. Woven from unbleached cotton materials (often not fully processed) cotton calico has a rustic look that is popular among Aussie consumers for its Earthy look and soft feel. Calico also holds ink well, making it an ideal choice for promotional bags.

Why is Calico an Ideal Bag Fabric?

Calico is a lightweight material which is why it is a preferred option for grocery and shopping bags. Many Aussies prefer to carry calico bags as their go-to shopping option because they add no real weight to handbags or backpacks when stowed. However, the benefits of calico don't end there! Calico is a sturdy material that can withstand considerable weight for its depth and much of this owes to the fact that it is made of natural fibres. The other benefit of natural fibres is they're minimally processed, unlike bags made from artificial materials. With an increasing number of Aussies concerned about the impact they have on the environment, calico bags made from sustainably sourced cotton are hot!

Jute and Calico Promotional Bags

Monday, 17 June 2019 9:04:41 AM Australia/Sydney

With environmental concerns becoming more of a pressing issue each day, it is imperative that everyone take some sort of action – no matter how small. For this reason, PromotionalBagsDirect is pushing for the use of eco-friendly products through jute and calico bags to act as a means of promotion as well as sending a message to help the environment. Here are our top three environmentally positive bags.

Promotional Eco-Friendly Bags

Personalised Compact Jute Tote Bags

Jute tote bags are created from jute which is a natural vegetable fibre. Its properties make it sturdy, breathable and versatile. Jute tote bags have risen to prominence as the best alternative to plastic shopping bags as they are able to carry substantial weight without compromising the quality of the items inside, especially fruit and vegetables. The compact jute tote bag comes in a square shape for ample room to customise with your unique brand or logo.

Customisable Scoop Coloured Calico Bags

Calico bags are the cotton version of jute tote bags! They offer similar durability and reusability but have garnered further use than shopping. These are the types of bags you will typically see at business events, local council meetings or school/university expo days. These scoop coloured calico bags come in a variety of colours with a wide handle for easy use and are a great way to have your brand stand out.

Branded Carry Bags Made from Recycled Bottles

These recycled carry bags are a great way to know that you are using a product that is made from 100% PET recycled material. This bag offers a bit more stability than the previous two with its additional compartments and woven dual carrying handles. This is a reliable bag designed for extended periods of use. Not to mention it has a lot of space to decorate your brand with
