In my previous post we were discussing the factor why to choose non woven shopping bags in UAE, lets resume our discussion.
Price: It is important to think about your budget before you start looking at the bags. If you see samples of $ 8 bags before discovering that you can only buy $ 2 bags, you will be disappointed. Like all other products, you get what you pay for, and a more expensive bag will generally be of better quality. Here are some guidelines on the prices of supermarket-style bags
Less expensive ($ 1- $ 1.5 per bag): mainly non-woven polypropylene bags, and some exceptions for small nylon bags.
Average price range ($ 2- $ 4 per bag): you will find the largest selection in this price range. Laminated bags tend to be in the range of $ 2-3. Polyester / nylon bags tend to be in the range of $ 2.50 to $ 3.50. Cotton has experienced strong increases in 2017 and most cotton bags are now in the $ 3 to $ 4 range with options limited to less than $ 3.
More expensive ($ 4 + per bag): mainly organic cotton, recycled cotton, hemp and jute. In addition, bags with luxury handles and a lot of details (pockets, eyelets, etc.)
Handles and other features: some non-woven shopping bags are folded, others with zipper, some are closed, some are small and others are large. Here are some more considerations when choosing your reusable bags
Mango length: Do you like to hold full bags on your shoulder? If so, look 20 “or more in the length of the handle (measure from one seam to another in a loop.) Do you prefer to carry it by hand? Look for handles about 18” or more in length.
Gusset size: The gusset refers to the depth of the bag. If the bag is intended for groceries, look for generous reinforcement. Some bags are flat without reinforcement, others have a lower reinforcement and others have full reinforcements of 3 sides (panels on both sides and on the bottom).
Folding bags: many reusable non-woven dress covers on the market today are designed to fold into them or into a bag for easy transport. These bags are super practical and perfect for unexpected trips to the store, as they are small enough to be stored in a purse, pocket, cup holder, briefcase or backpack. Some foldable non woven abay covers will have snaps, zippers, laces or Velcro to hold them together. Be careful with economical zippered bags, as zippers often break easily.
