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 in a 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.
