Pantone matching System Coated Colour Chart

We use Pantone Coated colour references as a universal language for colour for our bags. Whilst this is not a perfect method of ensuring print and fabric colour, it works well within reason.

We always recommend asking for a test print sample or a bag pre-production sample to ensure we have matched to your colour perfectly.

Bespoke bags by the Bag Workshop

Tailor-made bags offer infinite personalisation options to make a bag unique. 5 things you might choose to make your bag truly bespoke:

  •  FABRIC: Your fabric choice may demonstrate your commitment to the environment and be a natural, undyed Fairtrade cotton with minimal negative impact to the environment. Perfecting your corporate colours may be important to you and we may use a vegetable dye to colour the fabric or over print it.
  • SIZE: The size of the bag can be anything from the tiniest drawstring pouch to an enormous bag to transport tables in.
  • HARDWARE: A huge range of closures include zips, poppers, draw cords, ties or elastic.
  • STRAPS: They can be long or short. Made from different fabrics either natural or synthetic. Straps could be drilled on with rivets or sewn on with reinforcements.
  • POCKETS: Inserting a pocket to the inside or outside of a bag is possible. Even a pocket within a pocket.
