All of our 10 and 15 oz cotton canvas materials are woven and dyed specially for us. We have a wide range of colors that are in stock and available in our low bag minimums. Furthermore, we have a wide range of additional fabrics and colors available- just order at least 100 yards of fabric (which is about 300 shoulder totes, or 400 value totes- call us for details!)
With two weights to choose from, the cotton canvas is the most popular and economical choice. The 10 oz cotton is a canvas that is specially woven for us. The extra yarn and tight weave make our 10 oz comparable to other companies' 12 oz weight. The tighter weave is also a good fabric to use for most any print applications. It is versatile enough for any of our bag styles.
The heavier weight, 15 oz, is a sturdier fabric that offers a more professional look. It is popular with boat bags, but is available in all styles.
The Bottle Bag™ is made from 100% recycled PET, the plastic bottles that we recycle every day! The Bottle Bag™ fabrics provide comfort, ease of care, durability, softness, a rich-looking appearance, and helps preserve the earth. It is also entirely Made in the USA.
Just because a manufacturer says "this bag is made from 100% Recycled post-consumer plastic bottles" doesn't mean the ENTIRE BAG is made from recycled material. A portion of the bag could be made from something else. The fact is that unless the product contains 100% recycled materials, the label SHOULD tell you how much of the contents are recycled. Not all manufacturers will give this to you.
This fabric is made from a 65% blend of cotton yarn produced from the excess fabric of newly made clothing, and 35% Bottle Bag material (made from 100% recycled PET bottles). This unique manufacturing process saves land, energy, and water. For the best performance available, 35% of this bag contains 100% recycled soda bottle material.
According to the Council for Textile Recycling, 25,000 tons of new textile fiber is disposed of by North American spinning mills, weavers and fabric manufacturers each year. Technology now exists to make new cotton yarn from gin waste, commercial fabric trimmings and mills ends. Recycled cotton is recovered cotton that would be wasted during the spinning, weaving and cutting processes. Up to 40% of cotton grown is wasted between the harvest and the manufacture of garments. In the past, this waste went directly into landfills.
Our 100% certified organic cotton is grown domestically with Texas cotton and is an investment in our future. You've heard: you get what you pay for! This is certainly true when you talk about organic products. An organic grower providers healthy, wholesome products that takes care of us and the environment, as an investment in our future.

We use Spun-Poly handles that look and feel like cotton webbing, except these handles are softer and don't fray. They're safer in the sun, rain--and washer, too! We have a spun-poly handle color to match all of our 10 and 15oz colored cotton options (except for purple, pink, and teal). We do have other options not available online that can be added to your totes, such as handsewn handles that are made from the material of the bag, or 1.5" wide spun-poly. Inquire within for pricing on these options!
