Ordering and Options

We manufacture shopper tote bags to order in our British Textile factory as promotional merchandise in natural cotton calico.

We always say on cotton shopper bags that we can never compete with the big bag importers though if you are looking for an ethical, open supply chain, readily auditable British Factory for your promotional bags, then we may be the perfect solution for you.

We usually get involved with bespoke size bags or bags that need the fully open audit trail though we have presented what the industry would know as the cotton shopper here within our web site.

There are a number of ways to brand this product which are shown below as a guide.

The image and descriptions are generic but should help you understand how it may look on your product.

Can you make the bag bigger, smaller, wider or taller ?

Yes.  All our bags are bespoke and made to order.  Please get in touch if you have a specific requirement.

Can you print to the bags ?

Yes.  We recognise that there are many low cost screen printers in the UK that are ready to print the bags and would urge you to arrange the printing, if it is a standard requirement with your own supplier.  We do this so you can save costs though we can arrange this if you prefer.

Can you make colour fabric bags ?

Yes.  Coloured fabrics cost slightly more but the option is shown within our web site here.  If you need a colour that is not shown, please get in touch as we have many colour and fabric options available.

Why is overlocking the inside of the bags shown as an optional extra ?

Many fabrics such as cotton or polycotton will fray if it is not overlocked.  This is an extra process that finishes the bags off nicely inside and prevents fraying but we recognise it is an additional process and therefore cost.  Some clients want a British Made bag but need them as low a cost as possible and we are able as a manufacturer to give you the choice over the processes involved where they add to the budgets.  We always recommend overlocking.

Directors Review of the British Made Cotton Shopper

Shopper Tote Bags are a hugely used promotional merchandise product though very rarely do we see British Made bags. Its a simple fact that in the UK we have much higher wage and overhead costs that places like India and Pakistan which is where most shoppers come from. Even China is now too expensive for the bag trade.

We can and will make your British Made Shopper Tote Bags and it would be an absolute pleasure to do so, but with small quantities the costs for making products to order are what they are.

I hope that you can make the move and let us supply your promotional merchandise as a proudly made British option... though I am aware reality may be different !
