To keep your Designer pouches on trend, there are many inspirational designs and colors to think about when creating your seasonal packaging. Whatever your brand may be, there is something that can fit into your style. Trends ranging from transparent materials to velvet and patchwork designs can mix and match with different popular materials and treatments for a look that is totally unique to your brand. Below are a few popular materials you can use to create brand-exclusive pouches:
Cotton / Muslin
Cotton and muslin alike are versatile materials that never go out of style. Both materials pair well with this season's 2019-2020 trending colors and come in a variety of premium and trendy styles. Their woven construction is perfect for dying, screen printing, bleaching, or hot stamping. These treatments create a classy or casual look. Additionally, there are eco-friendly advantages of these natural fabrics; cotton and muslin are renewable sources. As a result, designer cotton and muslin pouches have the ability to last through multiple uses. Their strength and softness make these materials easy to work with. Considering cotton and muslin have a natural coloring, it serves as a blank canvas for any design.
Flannel and Felt
Flannel is a soft woven fabric that comes in a variety of thicknesses. First, this material can be made from wool-like fabrics or even yarn. Now, flannel is made from either wool, cotton or synthetic fibers. This type of fabric has the option to be brushed to create extra texture and softness. To cater to your brand's identity, or for a unique look, print or weave this material into unique patterns. This material is also soft enough to keep your jewelry, accessories, or sunglasses safe; and will not scratch.
Similar to flannel, felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing, and pressing fibers together. Felt fabrics can be made from natural fibers such as wool or animal fur. Instead, synthetic fibers like acrylic or rayon can also make up this durable material called felt. It is strong enough to hold its edges and will not unravel when cut.
Velvet is a chic material that can give your designer pouches a unique and luxurious feel. This luxurious fabric is a woven piece of material known for its silky-smooth feel. You can also get velvet from weaving materials like cotton, linen or wool. Similar to other materials, velvet can come in a wide range of colors to incorporate into your designer pouches.
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride is a solid plastic made from Vinyl Chloride. It is made softer and more flexible by the addition of phthalates, a form of plastic. PVC is a popular material to use when creating any type of packaging. PVC designer pouches can have a mix and match of materials or can be solely made from the material itself. It is so versatile that this material can come in a range of different colors, iridescent patterns or can also range in transparency. PVC is currently trending and is a great material to consider when creating your company's own designer packaging.
Another reusable material that is popular in creating pouches of all types is pp non-woven or Polypropylene Non-Woven. This non-woven fabric is a flat porous sheet directly made from fibers or plastic film. Pp non-woven materials can be mechanically bonded together to create a resilient cut of fabric. Additionally, this synthetic material mimics the texture, strength and appearance of woven fabrics, without it actually being knitted or woven together. Pp non-woven is a great choice for pouches because it is strong, inexpensive and available in a wide selection of colors. This reusable material can have matte or gloss laminations for a look that is completely unique to your brand.
Creating Your Designer Pouches
With a wide selection of materials and treatments to choose from, your designer pouches can easily transition from an everyday packaging item to a specialty designer pouch or gift with purchase. Once choosing your materials, pair custom closures with unique treatments to make sure your items are secure with a proper presentation.
To start, a drawstring closure allows for an elegant pouch. Adding different closures like snaps, zippers, fold overs or velcro can give your designer pouches a sophisticated touch. Custom treatments like hot stamping, custom printing, custom dye, and embroidery will also add elegance to your designer pouch. For a look unique to your brand, pair certain treatments with any of the available materials
For example, if your company’s theme is more boho, embroidery with cotton or muslin materials will continue your brand into the packaging itself. Add some finishing touches and colors into the pouch for an on-trend packaging piece.
Instead, if your company is more minimal, hot stamping a logo on velvet or flannel will bring the elegance of your brand together while showcasing your products. With the help of custom closures, your products will stay safe and scratch free all while adding flair to your brand and designer pouches.
Treatments and Materials
Last but not least, mix and match trendy materials, or add pvc windows to your designer pouches to customize your look. Pp non-woven is a perfect material to combine with pvc for a unique pouch. The front of the pouch can be completely clear with a pp non-woven backing so you can safely see what is inside the pouch. Add zipper closures as the finishing touches to secure the contents inside.
Designer pouches are so versatile and can come in any shape or size imaginable. Create them from any of the available materials with any type of closure. From fold over to zippers, to snap closures, your designer pouches will be a great item to have. Anything from the choice of material, to the type of treatment can change your designer pouches from something ordinary into a treasurable personal item.
