All the fabrics are OekoTex 100 certified. Recycled (GRS-RCS), Organic (GOTS) and Food Grade fabric options are available on most of the fabrics
TPU and PU lamination for waterproofing is available for thick fabrics. Waxing is available for canvas fabrics.
Arrangement of the list of cotton fabrics is price wise, from lowest cost to high end.
Ref#-Z1-10030307642: 110-115 GSM, 4 OZ, 100% Cotton or Poly Cotton:
Ref#-Z2-14020206060: 140-150 GSM, 5 OZ, 100% Cotton:
For low-cost retail sales or promotional bags, we suggest above mentioned 2 qualities, due to a balance between minimum strength and minimum price. 60% of total bags production is done with these fabrics. Bags made of these fabrics can carry 5-15 kg weight. Printing cost is low and printing strength is good on these fabrics, however, prints are visible on the back side. The natural color is light off white – light beige. We can dye it in any color from given color chart.
Somewhat a see-through fabric; however, best for low cost promotions.
We usually have 4-5 Colors of these fabrics in stock (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Black). With these colors, there is no MOQ (with ex work price)
Ref#-Z3–19016166060: 180-200 GSM, 7 OZ, 100% Cotton:
For large size low-cost Tote or Drawstring bags, we recommend this fabric. Look and weave is very same to the above-mentioned fabrics but it is thicker than those, and it isn’t see through. This is a strong fabric. Printing is good on it and print design is not visible on the back side. You can carry up to 40 Kg weight with bags made of this fabric.
Ref#-Z4-25016129656: 280-290 GSM, 10 OZ, 100% Cotton Canvas and Poly Cotton:
Strong and thick fabric. Best as a low-cost alternative of more thick canvas varieties. It is recommended in high end Tote bags, Backpacks, Zipper bags and pouches. It carries a thick look and feel. Fabric is stiffer and bags made of it may keep the shape and stand on their own without a stiffener. Dyeing increases its sturdy look. Stains or dust spots are less visible, courtesy to its weave. It is thick but the weave pattern lets the air pass through. This fabric is good for printing and dyeing. The natural color is light off white – light beige. We can dye it in any color from given color chart.
Ref#-Z5–390776838: 390 GSM, 14 OZ, 100% Cotton Canvas:
This is a cost-effective variant for fine quality canvas. Fabric is strong, sturdy, stiff, while comparatively light weight than heavier canvas varieties.
Ref#-Z6–44010D5034: 440 GSM, 16 OZ, 100% Cotton Canvas:
It is heavy, it is stiff, it is strong and it looks great. Bags made from this Canvas Fabric do not require stiffeners to stand. Backpacks made of this fabric stand on their own, can carry heavy weights and totally block airborne particles of dust and other elements from penetrating. It requires the best workmanship, strong sewing threads and durable accessories. This fabric is used in shopping bags of high-end brands, strong backpacks and durable zipper pouches.
Ref#-Z7–850105105: 850 GSM, 30 OZ, 100% Cotton Canvas:
This is a high-end fabric. Very few companies are producing such type of fabric. This is thick and we use it for strongest bags. Bags of this fabric do not require a stiffener. Special machines are used to stitch this fabric. We use it in Beach bags, tool bags and ladies hand bags. Its thickness makes it almost waterproof even without any additional process.
100% Cotton Denim:
We use 100% cotton denim from 10 oz to 20 oz for our bags. Denim is heavy duty, durable, washable and looks best. These Denim fabrics can be used in raw form or washed for specific effects.
100% Cotton Mesh Fabric:
Cotton Mesh fabric is used where high ventilation is required and you do not need to hide the contents of your bags like grocery bags for fresh vegetables. Some times it is used for decorative purposes only.
Jute is a natural fiber. Jute is stronger than cotton but it isn’t soft like cotton. We use Jute fabrics for decorative purposes or decorative bags.
100% Polyester Fabrics:
We make bags with polyester fabrics where waterproofing, durability and strength is required within minimum cost. Polyester is not natural but using recycled polyester make a positive impact on the environment. Polyester is low cost, it is stronger than cotton, it doesn’t absorb water, it doesn’t get dirt easily, it doesn’t shrink and it is much more washable than natural fabrics.
PU, TPU and PVC coating/lamination on our polyester fabrics is used to make them waterproof. PVC is cheaper than PU however, PVC does have negative impact on environment. PU and TPU have much higher abrasion resistance than PVC.
Light weight polyester fabrics are usually used as lining inside the bag’s main compartment or inside the pocket. Thicker polyester fabrics are used as main body fabrics e.g., Zipper pouches, toiletry bags, backpacks etc.
We use 180T, 190T, 210T and 300D, 400D, 500D, 600D, 1000D and 1600D Polyester fabrics. In black, usually they are available in stock and no MOQ is required when we make bags with these fabrics.
Silk Screen or digital printing is available for polyester bags.
Regular Polyester Fabrics are cheaper than recycled polyester fabrics.
Printing is available for all types of bags. Print cost depends upon number of colors in a design, the total covered area and the total quantity for a color.
Most common for these bags is silk screen table printing. Colors are sharp, matching is great, mold cost is medium in this type of printing. Best for quantities from 500 to 20000 pieces. Silk screen table printing is done on product panels or finished product.
Rotary printing (a type of screen print, done on rotary machines) is used for large batches of same design. For large batches, it is more cost effective. Mold cost and initial operational wastage is high so it is not feasible for small quantities. Rotary printing is done of long lengths of fabric. Washability is great.
Digital Printing (for 100% cotton) is done when we have lot of colors in the design. No initial mold cost. Can be used for very small quantities.
Sublimation is great for print sharpness and details but it is done on 100% polyester fabrics only.
Heat Transfer Stickers are also available.
You can select any design from our website or SEND US your own design. We can customize designs and sizes.
There are a lot of accessories that we use in our bags. You can ask for options or send us your own choice and we will produce. Find below a little detail of accessories
Zippers: We can use Nylon Coil, Metal Zipper and Plastic Teeth (Vislon) Zippers. Zippers are available in different sizes. Zippers can be dyed in customized colors. Nylon Coil zippers are most common and the lowest cost. YKK Zippers are also available.
Zipper Puller:: Zipper is selected for cost, strength and usage whereas Puller is selected for cost and design. We can use a range of puller designs. Customized logo puller are also available.
Cord:: We use cotton or polyester cords. Cords are available in different thickness. You may ask for samples to check the quality and thickness of cords. Elastic cords are also available. Cords can be used in natural colors or in matching colors. Tipped Cord are also available.
Elastic:: Flat or round elastics are available to be used as per designs. Cord’s width/dia is decided keeping the cost and design in mind. Thick cords have more pulling strength and more retention than thinner ones. Usually, Elastics are used hidden inside the fabric so matching colors are not required.
Eyelets:: Eyelets are available in different sizes and materials. You can select or we will suggest according to the usage and cost estimate.
Button/Snaps:: Different types of snaps and buttons are available in all sizes, ranging from nylon to metal and resin.

Stiffener:: Plastic and natural material cardboard stiffeners are available to give your bag a specific shape or strengthen the bottom.
Insulation Foam:: Foams of different thicknesses are used for heat insulation and as shock absorbers.
Minimum Order Quantities
Production and Shipping both have their economically viable minimum quantity limits.
Production (MOQ limitations):
Customization and personalization always increase the MOQ. Each production step has its own wastage and minimum quantity. Increasing the processes will increase the MOQ.
Bags with natural color fabrics have the lowest MOQ or you can say, without an MOQ. In natural color bags without any personalization, we can produce even 100 pieces without an extra cost.
Dyeing needs almost minimum 1000 meters (For understanding, that quantity of fabric translates into 3000-5000 regular tote bags of size 38 x 42 cm). Dyeing less than this quantity results in extra wastage, hence increasing the cost. An economical alternative is to go for available colors. Please note, not all the colors in all the fabrics are available all the time.
Regular accessories (Zippers, Sliders, Buttons, Elastics, Cords etc) are available all the time and don’t need a minimum quantity. However, for customized accessories, or unique accessories, a mold cost and wastage cost will increase the price in case of small quantities.
With screen printing and digital printing, we can do lowest possible quantities (around 1000 bags per design) however, cost of 1000 and 10000 pieces will always be different. Moreover, number of colors will always increase the set-up cost of screen printing. You have to divide the initial cost on the total number of pieces per design. Large quantities are more feasible with rotary screen printing, again, the set up / mold cost is high for rotary machine. Each color needs an additional screen so high number of colors is almost impossible in screen printing for small quantities. Minimum quantity that can be printed on Rotary machine is 2000 Meters (in case of 1-2 colors) (For understanding, that quantity of fabric translates into 12000-15000 regular tote bags of size 38 x 42 cm).
Shipping (MOQ limitations):
During bulk shipping of export shipments, you have to do custom clearance and the related documentation that involves several govt departments. Port charges and shipping line charges for a shipment (regardless of small or large) also apply. Custom clearance agents and forwarders have their per shipment charges as well. You can ship even a single piece of any product but you have to charge all the occurring cost to that single piece. With the increasing number of articles per shipment, the shipping costs decreases. For an idea, 220 USD is the minimum cost for a shipment of 1-2000 pieces.
Air shipping involves lesser processes and lesser costs. For an idea, 60 USD is the minimum cost for a shipment of 1-2000 pieces.
Besides production and shipping, our own involved time and overheads are an important aspect to consider. Even the smallest order are assigned to a team and they do all the relevant documentation for even samples.
However, in today’s fast-moving world, every brand wants to offer higher number of options/designs to their customers. They also want to change the designs and bring new designs as soon as possible. We have developed systems to manage small quantities per design.

Inform your supplier if you are going to sell them plain or will print them. For printing, pre washed and pre shrunk fabric is used to get optimum print result and to make printing washable.
