Tote bags have been a well-known alternative to plastic bags. It all started in 1990’s when people realized that plastic bags were ruining the environment. These bags are very popular nowadays and they came in various materials, shapes and sizes. They can be used in many ways and you can carry them everywhere, when going shopping, getting ready for your workout routine or just walking down the street.
Today, many people are willing to replace plastic bags with reusable totes. Plastic shopping bags are everywhere and nearly 2 billion bags being disposed daily. Not only these plastic bags are costly, but they are also destroying the environment and killing the marine life as well. Thus, conventional plastic bags clearly are not healthy for the environment.
Good quality reusable shopping bags with your logo or message can boost brand awareness and customer’s reach. That’s why several companies now heavily rely on custom tote bags to make their names linger on the customers’ minds longer.
What’s more, custom tote bags have progressively evolved into the ultimate statement accessories and become the best alternative to plastic bags. You can reuse them over and over again. The more you use a tote bag, the greater the impact they have on the environment and great exposure for brands.
While every custom tote bag can be useful, let’s learn about its different materials with their types and uses.
Non-woven bags are reusable totes that are known for their durability and eco-friendliness. In some countries, they are called eco-bags.

Canvas bags are made of basic weaves and probably one of the known customizable tote bags. They can be made of soft cotton and polypropylene that can be dye for different colors. Since they are cotton-based products, they are not eco-friendly.
Customizations such as transfer, iron-on, screenprint, and acrylic painting are possible to these bags. They are also perfect for detailed prints and logos.
Leather tote bags are popular in the fashion culture where owners can personalize their own. This customization gives the leather tote bags a unique look that may suit any style and occasion. Name tags, initials, logos, and personalized arts are some popular prints we can see today in these bags.
Leather dyes such as alcohol ink and oil-based dye are paints used to design leather tote bags. Although these bags are fashionable, owners need to maintain them. Unlike other tote bags, they are sensitive to moisture and heat.
Tote bags are around and becoming part of our daily lives to reduce single-use plastics. Re-usable bags are easy to carry, economical, and usable in different situations. They are applicable for shopping, giveaways, groceries, and fashion. They are durable, flexible, and can last multiple usages.
