10 Most Quirky Cotton Products of 2017

What a creative year…It has been so bespoke that we thought it would be worth summarizing and sharing our results with others.

We have made thousands of tote bags and cotton drawstring bags in various shapes, colours and weights.

Our creativeness did not stop though. This year we have used cotton fabric in order to make some fantastic products, such as:

Umbrella Bag
Long and narrow, made to measure cotton drawstring bag from the thick canvas. Great packaging for high-end products. Later ideal for storing dry umbrella which safely hangs in the wardrobe when the sun is high in the sky.

Sword Bag
The name says it all. Journey in time is possible with this funky shape bag. Made for souvenir shops who serve the castle visitors.

Newspaper Bag
Very clever type of a bag with a strap in the middle instead of the sewn bottom. Perfect for the hospitality sector. Morning paper will never look the same again in our cotton bag.

Cotton Cheese Wrap
A drawstring bag with a round base made to measure for… cheese. The perfect match of natural cheese with 100% natural Oeko-Tex certified fabric.

Zip Bag for Knitting Sticks
Your knitting sticks are safe in the wide zip bag. Made to measure to fit the long sticks. You do not need to be afraid that the sticks will stick out from the wool. A perfect product of any gift shop.

Book Cover
Not a paper book cover but a cotton one. Elegant cosy wrapping for your favourite title. Another beautiful pair made of cotton and paper.

Pouch for a Sex Toy
Yes, our cotton possibilities are endless. The only limitation is the width of the fabric.

Bag for Tiny Cups
Little pouch for nipple heals. Perfect storage pouch for the smallest and most delicate products that needed to be stored. They will never be lost when kept in our pouch.

Dog Poop Zip Bag
Name is slightly confusing but it is not so misleading as you think. Tiny zip bag for dog poop bags. Instead of storing the bags in your pocket, they are neatly placed in the zip bag with a little loop.

Kettle Bag
Can you just imagine storing the kettle in a bag? We can, as we know it is perfect protection form any scratches. The kettle sits safely in the drawstring bag when purchased.

Clients are our designers and the above list has been created thanks to them. In the plastic-free time we are certain 2018 will be even more creative. It has started.

Have a Cotton Year Everyone!

A Great Story Behind a Cotton Product

We are proud to be a part of the Drain Dollies bags and cushion covers project.

Charlotte Wood, the founder of Drain Dollies created the company which sells bags that hold surgical drains safely and securely. She has also created small gorgeous cushion covers with the design that conveys an important message – the pink part of the ribbon symbolizes breast cancer and the teal part is the symbol of ovarian cancer. 10% of all the sales go to Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention charity.

It is such an enormous honour for us to have the opportunity to make cotton products which are used to help women affected by breast and ovarian cancer.

Avocado, Latte, Hawaiian and More…

Traditional khaki, elegant maroon, lively lime, yummy avocado, feminine magenta or baby blue … is our response to constantly growing creativeness of our Clients.

We took this opinion on board and searched the fabric possibilities. Apart from new shades we have introduced fantastic, loved by everyone canvas. Ideal for full-colour printing due to plain and delicate weave. 

Please feel free to look at our extended range of cotton fabrics. We are certain you will find your favourite match.

Please Enjoy!

Cotton Barons Team.

Cotton – Why We Cherish It So Much

Cotton – the world’s most used material – is an amazing plant.

We learned to use all its parts, from the fibre for cloth-making to the seeds which are the source of oil that is used in the food industry. Its leftovers: meal and hull are used to feed farm animals. Just look around – our t-shirts, underwear, bed linen, towels, and many other things are made from cotton. This is because the cotton fabric has so many qualities like being breathable, highly absorbent, durable and non-allergic.

It has also become popular for making bags as it is strong and very easy to sew and its absorbent qualities make it a great material for dyeing and printing. We truly believe that a cotton bag is nature at its best – a natural product that is fully recyclable and eco-friendly.

Cotton Bag Challenge

I have to admit it took us a while to come to terms with 5p plastic bags tax. The media was full of stories about trolley thefts, increased production of shopping baskets or fierce arguments between shoppers and cashiers. If you still find this law difficult to digest why not set yourself up for a Cotton Bag Challenge. Very simple task indeed – get a reusable cotton shopping bag.

Here at Cotton Barons, we have been using Cotton Bags since the late ’90s and we cannot imagine packing our goods in plastic carrier bags. Just think about the capacity and durability of the fabric. It also protects your purchased items from breakage and it’s convenient to carry around. And for the fashionistas out there you can perfectly cooperate your cotton bags with your outfit.

Personally, I prefer folding my bags and storing them in my kitchen cupboard than binning another plastic bag.

Why not try it yourself.

Cross vs. Non-Cross Stitched Handles

Most of the tote bags have CROSS STITCHED handles which is a traditional way of sewing the straps to the bags.

We have recently processed a few orders for the bags with NON-CROSS STITCHED handles and since it turned out to be such a success we are happy to present it to the world.

This elegant option is especially recommended in the designs with an edge to edge printing.

Do I Really Need a Plastic Bag? Think Twice.

It is all about plastic these days. Shall we use it? How to reduce it? What is the best alternative? Are Cotton Bags the answer? 

One is certain and let’s admit it we cannot live without plastic. Simply there are aspects of life where plastic is needed. A very simple example, I have recently visited A&E with my husband, all the instruments were wrapped in plastic. Hygiene I am thinking.

In this article. I am not going to preach about reducing plastic to zero.

What we are all observing right now,  is the excessive use of it. An unnecessary amount of plastic creating piles of rubbish.What for? Just a convenience or a habit? We live in times where we want everything right now,  in an instant. We demand we deserve, we expect, we complain. Why shall I bother to carry a tote bag in my purse, why shall I keep some bags in the car? Why shall I take a bag for shopping? I want a plastic bag, I have paid so much for my shopping so I deserve a free plastic bag.

But to be honest with you it is nothing new. Let’s’ go back to the ’80s. What were our parents using at the farm market?  Wicker baskets. I am just finishing a book ‘Le Petit Nicolas’ by René Goscinny with my LO and there are references to the Dad taking a shopping bag whereas in ‘Bolek and Lolek’ in one of the adventures written in 80’s boys when sailing find a plastic bag in the ocean.

As in fashion, in health, life is a sine wave and the older I am the more I understand it. Now we are very low at the curve; tired of and frustrated with plastic carry bags. After this plastic period we are coming to conclusion we do not need a plastic bag just so it ends up (hopefully) in the bin within 15 mins.

I truly believe Cotton Bag is more than a bag. Firstly It is used to convey a message. It is a blank canvas waiting impatiently for your quote or design. Secondly it is a piece of art presenting  colorful, vivid, edge to edge prints. It is an accessory, part of the clothing. Last not least it brings memory of the Event.

What is special about bags, they are not stocked items. Thanks to our YES attitude we create beautiful bags that our Clients are proud of and ask for more. Short runs mean every company can have a fashionable line of bags which can be resold or given for free.

As a business to business company we offer our Clients bags made from Oeko Tex certified cotton in a wide range of thickness, weave and abundance of colour to choose from. However, as we know it might not be enough, we dye the fabric in our high tech laboratory to match the specific Pantone. We also encourage our Clients to send their fabrics to our production house, for instance, recently our Client sent us a sail which we used to make the lining of the bag. Now we are also at the stage of researches into hemp and jute just to offer our Clients more…

I am saying this not only as a  Business and Founder of Cotton Barons but also as a respectful human being and an absolute fan of bags.  

I will also continue taking my bag with pride and replying like mantra at the counter ‘ I have got a bag,  I do not need one I have got my own one ‘

One Small Charge for a Customer, One Giant Leap for Mankind and Lifeline for Our Mother Earth

We enthusiastically welcomed the new carrier bags law that imposes charging 5p for single-use plastic carrier bags that has been introduced by the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs.

Thanks to this we will reduce the amount of waste that plastic bags cause and it will encourage us to reuse bags.

Cotton bags which are fully recyclable are the perfect response to this new carrier bags policy.

There are so many positives behind using fabric bags. For the end user it means ‘shop until you drop’,

Whereas for businesses it means ecological image combined with the advert.

Why You Would Not Be Able to Find Prices on Our Website

We don’t provide quotes on the website simply because all our products are customized, and prices may change depending on the quantity, size of the product and your specific requirements.

Showing prices means there is a single product type – however, we make our products to our customer's specifications, and these requirements can mean a variation in the cost. A single product price would simply be inaccurate.

Feel free to email us directly with your request, and we will be more than pleased to work on your product and prices for you.

Have a beautiful day,
