When it comes to making responsible purchases, we all want to do our part. We opt for cruelty-free shampoos

July 3, 2022

When it comes to making responsible purchases, we all want to do our part. We opt for cruelty-free shampoos and lotions. We buy in bulk to reduce the packaging that ends up in landfills. And we’re on board with using reusable bags when we’re out shopping. But many of us wonder…does the type of bag we use really matter? Can’t we just use the cheapest option out there?

The answer is yes…and no.

Yes, the type of bag you choose makes a difference…and no, you shouldn’t let cost be the deciding factor on the type of bags you use.

If you’re ready to expand your reusable bag collection, we hope you’ll consider investing in a few well-constructed canvas bags. While they may not be the cheapest bags out there, we happen to think they’re some of the best…and here are our top 3 reasons why.

  1. We are Established Within the Industry

Ours is not a fledgling business trying to stay afloat in the highly competitive world of textile production. Rather, Cooper Canvas has been designing and producing premium quality canvas products for nearly 40 years. In that time, we have built a reputation as an industry leader thanks to our commitment to quality and efficiency and have expanded our reach by serving customers in more than 35 countries.

This is a family-run business with family values that currently employs a workforce of more than 400 people, and it is this commitment that has allowed us to become one of the premier producers of promotional, protective, and industrial materials in the world.

  1. We are Industry Experts

Not only has our business been “in the business” for decades, but we’ve become experts within the textile industry. Our factory is located in the bustling business district of Karachi, Pakistan, and has a total integrated manufacturing unit set up for all canvas and cotton needs.

Our plant boasts in-house yarn preparation, weaving, dyeing, and finishing capabilities, and we are quick to apply the most advanced manufacturing methods and most recent technological innovations to provide our clients with state-of-the-art canvas items.

It is this expertise that has allowed us to work with a variety of clients—from government agencies to commercial and industrial customers.

Clients appreciate the fact that, thanks to our fleet of state-of-the-art, computer-controlled sewing machines, no design or fabrication requirement for commercial or industrial application is outside of our capabilities.

  1. We Care About Our Planet

It is no secret that our world is in the midst of a plastic pollution disaster..and it’s only getting worse. Case in point—the amount of single-use plastics used globally has tripled since the COVID – 19 pandemic bean, according to the International Solid Waste Association.

We knew we had to do our part to change the trajectory of this crisis, and that’s why we implemented an internal training process amongst our staff which allowed us to provide customers with organic, cotton tote bags.

We have earned a reputation within our industry for offering 100% eco-friendly canvas and cotton products and are proud to be a leading manufacturer of cotton canvas products within Pakistan.

We are deeply proud to be able to offer our customers quality alternatives to the single-use plastic bags that are destroying our world.

And so..

If you find yourself in need of quality canvas or cotton totes for your next promotional event or marketing venture, we hope you’ll contact us. Your satisfaction is our highest priority, and we look forward to turning your tote bag visions into reality.
