Tote clutch bag
Tote clutch bag that is a foldable bag that opens out from a clutch bag style to a large shopper bag. This foldable canvas bag also has an adjustable across-body strap which allows the bag to be used in a variety of ways. There’s a screen printed logo on the front panel of the bag.
PU leather handle detail and zip pull plus metal rivet finishing offer this bag a unique upgraded style. To further customise this bag, a woven logo label could be included on the external seam or inside seam of the bag. They can also be sewn in flat, like a badge. Other opportunities to personalise this foldable canvas bag include adding a lining, pockets on the inside and outside or changing up the fabric type or colour.
Bespoke tote bags can be manufactured in a number of ways to really personalise the bag and make it unique.
Custom made bag sizes
A standard tote bag size is 42 x 38cm. Making a bespoke tote bag means that you can make it any size and portrait or landscape orientation to suit its purpose. The size of the tote bag can be increased to include side panels and a gusset for greater capacity. Any size of bag is possible when making it from scratch.
Customising the lining in a tote bag
Adding a lining to a tote bag can include fabric the same as the body of the bag or a lighter weight, either plain or printed. It can be in a different fabric such as a wipe clean PVC. The lining could serve as compartments inside of the bag for keeping the contents separate or internal pockets.
Fabric options for a bespoke tote bag
Cotton is a popular choice for bags. It comes in many forms such as recycled cotton, both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste and Fairtrade organic cotton are sustainable cotton choices. Cotton weights are measured in ounces or gsm and this applies to standard cotton or other greener cotton options.
Not limited to cotton, we work in a variety of fabrics including synthetics such as PVC or PU leather. Jute, bamboo and hemp are environmentally friendly options. Denim, non-woven PP, RPET for bags and polyester are all options to consider when working out what the bag you are making will be used for. Each of these fabrics have pros and cons associated with them, so it's a question we ask at the beginning of your bag project, so we can make sensible recommendations based on the bag purpose and your budget.
Pantone matching a bespoke bag is possible by dying the fabric prior to construction or overprinting. We supply colour swatches prior to full production to ensure you select the right colour to suit the rest of your product portfolio or brand guidelines.
Straps and handles for tote clutch bags
The length of a strap can be customised to suit the objective of the bag. Short handles for hand carry, long handles for shoulder carry or both. Across body straps, with adjustable buckles and usually used on messenger bags can also be used on a tote bag.
The handles on the bag can be made from a number of fabrics to suit the style of the tote bag. Leather handles or vegan leather (PU leather) can be added for a premium finish to the bag. Cotton webbed handles in contrast colours, stripes or overprinted is possible. Other suggestions for custom handles on bags include overprinted cotton or a rope.
Decoration of a bespoke tote clutch bags
Logo printing on a bag doesn't need to be limited to the centre of the bag and a screen print. There are multiple print options and choosing the right one will be determined by the artwork you want to print on the bag. Other decoration options include embroidery and applique. It's also possible to print all over the panels of a bespoke tote bag, on the handles and on the inside of the bag or on the lining. Other decoration options include badges and labels.
Closing tote clutch bags
Popular options for closing a tote bag include a zip at the top that runs from one end of the width of the bag to the other. The colour of zip can be metal gold, antique brass, rose gold or silver. Other options include coloured plastic zips. The zip tape can vary in colour and an array of stock colours are available or the zip tape can be Pantone matched to the fabric or print of the bag.
Metal poppers, draw cord closures and flaps with poppers to securely keep the flap down is possible, as are metal or plastic buckles or velcro.
Labels for bags
Adding a label to a bag can offer a variety of branding opportunities. Fabric labels can be woven or printed and sewn in various external or internal hems on the side or over the top of the tote bag. PU leather badges or leather labels can be debossed or embossed and be sewn in on the panels of the bag, the straps or pockets.
Metal badges or labels can be branded and attached at any place on the bag. Colours range from metallic colours to overpainted Pantone matched metal.
Accessorising your bespoke tote bag
For a truly bespoke tote clutch bag, the possibility of matching the colour of the thread to the print in the logo or internal taped seams for a precise and neat finish will give your bag the edge over your competitor's bag.
