The Bombay Bags Story with Jute Bags and Canvas Totes
Many years ago, it was almost impossible to find tote bags for sale in our Grocery Stores in Canada and USA. There were only the free plastic bags. These plastic bags were not only ugly and
inconvenient to carry, they also were really bad for our environment. The
environment consciousness of the people related to those free plastic bags was
also very poor. And they were a common site on our beaches and parks. We started
Bombay Bags in 2007 with this in mind. Soon we found great support from Oakridge
Mall in Vancouver. They invited us to design a Tote bag for them that would be
used for their Annual Fashion Show. It was our first big break. The Jute bag we
developed for them became very popular among their customers. On popular demand
they used a Jute Bag even in their 2008 Annual Fashion Show, which was also done
by Bombay Bags. We received a lot of calls and emails from the Oakridge Mall
customers who wanted to provide us their feedback on how happy they were with
their Black Jute Bag.
During the last eight years we have added a lot of
satisfied customers. Today we make high quality Tote bags with a lot of Natural
fabrics like Jute, Cotton Canvas, JUCO, Silk, Organic Cotton etc. The natural
fabrics are not only great for a sustainable environment, they also have a great
fashion appeal. In the last eight years the Tote bags used in Canada and USA has
evolved quite a bit. Customers today are more discrete in their choice for a
Tote bag. There are few takers for the free and cheap non woven bags now a days. The
looks of the Tote
Bag, Bag Size and the Print Design are some of the top features people look for
Tote Bag. On the whole, the average Tote Bag Consumer is looking for a quality
product and don't want to be a walking billboard.

Jute Canvas Tote as a Sustainable and Fashion Product
The Jute fabric is also known as Burlap or Hessian in North America. Since Jute material in North American has been traditionally used for Industrial and
Agricultural packaging. The average consumer is more
familiar with the Burlap rugs which is a coarse Jute material.
Jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer. Jute plants grow so close to each other that no pest can survive in there
so there no need for pesticides or insecticides for growing Jute crops. This
makes Jute the most organic fiber. Being a natural fiber, Jute is 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Thus the bags from this fiber are very environment friendly bags.
Another great thing about Jute Canvas fabric is that it requires no Chemical
Bleaching for weaving or dying. After harvesting the fabric staples from the
plants, the fabric staples have to be bleached in order to make them wearable.
But the Jute Staples are long by nature so they require absolutely no Chemical
Bleaching. This aspect makes the Jute Canvas Totes very gentle on skin and especially for those prone to allergies.
And also makes sure that Jute Tote bags have minimal impact on the environment
of both the place they are manufactured and the place they get used.
high quality Jute Canvas we use is a fabric with very high fashion appeal. The
fabric has a very natural look and yet looks absolutely finished and high end.
The Jute Canvas fiber weave is a little coarse and uneven and this gives it a very natural and green bag kind of feeling. Another feature is that
the Jute Totes can maintain their structure in free air and are very durable
and convenient to carry lot of stuff.
