Comparison of a gift bag and a material bag

1. Material bags are more durable and less likely to be damaged

One of the main disadvantages on paper bags is how easily they crease or tear. All it takes is a slight accident and the whole effect is spoilt.  Fabric bags however are reusable and are much more durable, making them less likely to tear or crease than paper.  Thanks to their durability, fabric bags look stunning for longer so you don’t have to worry about their appearance being spoilt.

2. Material bags have a higher resistance to moisture

Water and other liquids can pose a serious threat to paper gift bags!  A spilled drink or exposure to heavy rain will inevitably destroy this type of packaging.  Material bags on the other hand are not as susceptible to damage from moisture and will simply dry if they do come in to contact with water.  This makes them a much more durable option than popular paper bags.  With fabric bags there is also the added bonus of being able to wash them!

3. Strong fabric bags

Depending on your choice of fabric, material bags are able to carry heavier items compared to paper bags.  While paper bags can easily tear with a heavier object in it, fabric bags can cope much better and can be reused with confidence without having to worry about it tearing.

4. Material bags are easier to keep clean

Fabric bags can look smarter for longer because they are much easier to keep clean.  It is difficult to remove stains from a paper bag but with fabric bags, smaller stains can be wiped or larger stains can be washed off completely.  Thanks to this, fabric bags will stay looking smarter for longer.

5. Fabric bags are convenient to storage and transport

One of the many advantages of fabric bags is that they are as light as paper bags yet more durable and crease resistant.  For example, you can roll them up and put they in your handbag so you always have one handy when you need one.  You don’t have to worry about it tearing and if it has any creases it can simply be ironed if needed.
