About The Bags

I designed these  gorgeous, organic cotton reusable bags as a chic, eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic bags. 
When it was time to have the bags made, sourcing a manufacturer was a completely new experience for me and it’s been a really enjoyable learning curve. After doing my homework, I was able to find a manufacturer in Shenzhen, China that had amazing reviews, produced incredibly high quality pieces, worked with organic cotton and above all they were GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. So what does that mean? 

In order to obtain a GOTS certification, the manufacturer is required to meet the following sourcing, manufacturing and social criteria:
  1. Contain at least 95% organic fibre.
  2. Not be treated with bleach, formaldehyde or any other toxic substances. 
  3. Be coloured with non-toxic dyes (not applicable to my designs as they are natural cotton). 
  4. Be produced in a facility that enforces strict social and environmental standards, treating their employees and the earth with deep respect. This includes adherence to over two dozen ILO (International Labour Organization) criterion. 
These factors were non-negotiable for me and I know that they are important to you too. 
The best part is that these bags are incredibly versatile: use them for grocery shopping, bulk food shopping, snack bags, toiletries, organizing your purse or gym bag and the list goes on!
