Ribbon is remarkably soft, making bags feel luxurious while you're carrying them. This is complemented by their chic, elegant appearance. Since ribbon comes in a variety of colours, these handles are versatile in their looks, and can be made to suit your exact design style. This makes them perfect for gift bags. However, they might be a tad too dainty for larger bags and heavier contents, so they're usually just ordered for use with smaller, lighter items, when the look and feel is more important than practicality.
We use a luxury double faced satin ribbon which gives a silky and luxurious finish to the bag. There are a wide range of colours and widths of ribbon available.
Cotton fibres are bound together like rope, creating a handle type which provides the same soft, up-scale feel and appearance of ribbon, but with far greater strength. Additionally, cotton handles are typically quite thick, meaning they won't be as likely to dig into people's hands when used to carry heavier loads. For this reason, they are typically used with large laminate bags.
Twisted paper is more economical than both ribbon and cotton since it is machine made, yet it is still relatively strong. Available as standard in either white or brown - but with multiple other colour options available for larger orders - these handles aren't as luxurious as cotton or ribbon, but they do possess their own natural charm. They are also quick to make - we’re able to deliver an order in just 1 week - and easily recyclable since all components are made of paper.
These handles work well to provide a natural and rustic finish to the bag. Ideal if you are selling natural or organic products
