Using Cotton Materials in your Packaging

There are many advantages to using cotton in packaging. One of the most appealing features is that it is a renewable fabric. It’s found naturally and can be used repeatedly, giving it a longer shelf life than most other materials. For environmentally conscious consumers, cotton in packaging is a way to reap the benefits of nature, without adding extra waste in landfills.
Reusing bags are not only good for the environment, but it also gives you a great opportunity to embellish your product. Since it will be used multiple times, you don’t have to limit your design to basic printing. For an eco-friendly printing option, there is soy ink: an alternative option available. It can also be custom dyed, bleached, natural, embroidered, post-washed for a soft feel, screen printed, hot stamped and can be decorated with a variety of studs, grommets, custom handles, and zippers.
Cotton materials can be treated and personalized in numerous ways. It is naturally an ivory color, giving it the ability to fit any vision. The color isn’t the only advantage; it can be made into a variety of gauges and weaves, so bags can be thin like delicate muslin or very thick, like a sturdy tote. This fabric is also easy to work with, so there are no limitations in how small or large the final package can be.
Cotton materials can be made into a variety of packaging products, such as bags, pouches, garment bags, envelopes, wrapped boxes, and banners and the customization options are endless.
