10 or 15 oz Canvas  

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.

Bottle Bag Material

Bottle Bag Material

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.

 

What Does "Recycled" Really Mean? When you compare, look for specific information. If a label says "recycled," check how much of the product or package is recycled and where the recycled material comes from.
What does Post-Consumer Mean? "Post-consumer" material comes from previously used business or consumer products, such as newspapers, shipping cartons, plastic bottles, glass containers, and aluminum cans.
What does Post-Industrial or Pre-Consumer mean? "Post-Industrial" or "Pre-Consumer" material is basically manufacturing waste. For example, an envelope manufacturer might recycle the clippings leftover when envelopes are cut from paper. These clippings could be made into other paper products instead of being thrown away.

 

 

 

 

 

Recycled Cotton
 

Recycled Cotton Canvas

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.

What's the Difference with Organic? One of the most commonly asked questions is about the "DIFFERENCE" in organically grown and conventionally grown cotton. The most obvious difference is, of course, the growing methods utilized by the producer of the fiber. There are also differences in the processing at the mill, but other than that: organically grown cotton has the same properties as conventionally grown cotton!!!
What is Organic Farming?A production system which prohibits use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and relies on crop rotation, crop residues, animal manures, compost, nitrogen-fixing legume crops, mechanical cultivation, botanical or biological controls with minimum adverse effects on health and environment. A transition period of three years is required before crops are certified organic.
