Woven labels for bags

There are a huge range of materials, finishes and qualities for a woven label. The most common material for a woven label is taffeta and cotton.

It’s possible to weave up to 12 colours to a label and there are various finishing options for folding, sewing and centring the label. Woven labels work best when it’s a simple design such as a logo and icon, clear text or images.

Printed labels for bags

Printed labels can be more complex as a digital print will show the finer detail. Care labels are usually printed in this way, but a brand label can be printed and be as superior as a woven label if the design is great. We offer a range of fabric options for a printed label for a bag. They include:

  • Polyester satin (anti-fray and standard)
  • Taffeta polyester
  • Acetate satin
  • Natural coated cotton

We can print 1-4 colours as well as print on the front and reverse of the label. Sizes vary according to your specification and finishes include labels supplied on the roll, cut and fused singly or cut and centre folded.

Care labels for bags

Care labels are usually printed and sewn on the inside of the bag. They will advise how to care for your bag and anything else you might like on it such as where the bag originates from and the fabric it is made from.

Manufacturer of custom bespoke bags

Custom made bags, also referred to as bespoke bags or tailor-made bags are a bag whereby you supply the specification that includes dimensions, fabric type and other personalisation options, then we go on to make it for you. Often when clients come to us, they know they want to make a bespoke bag, but don’t know all of the final finishing detail. We might see a sketch or an outline of what someone is looking for and we can help fill in the gaps for the custom-made bag. Our experience allows us to make sensible suggestions based on the budget you have or what the bag is intended to be used for. We go out to market to find the fabric and finishing details you are looking for.
