    What does it look and feel like?
    Like a supermarket carrier, this is a vest carrier bag which refers to the vest shaped appearance of the bag. It's manufactured from a high density polythene which means it's scrunchy and thin to touch, just like a supermarket carrier. And just like a supermarket carrier, these bags are primarily designed for function over form. It's rare that you would find this type of bag in high end boutiques but you'll be sure to find them in the vast majority of high street stores.
    What's it used for?
    This is a very popular general purpose carrier bag, typically used for fruit and veg, household goods, light clothing items, hats, kidswear and pot plants. Not suitable for heavy items and / or items with sharp corners.
    What do the dimensions mean?
    279mm x 432mm x 533mm (11in x 17in x 21in) means:
    • the bag width is 279mm (11in) but expands outwards to 432mm (17in) when the gusset is fully opened
    • the bag length is 533mm (21in)
    Still confused? Take a look at the diagram below:
    • A = 279mm (11in)
    • B = 432mm (17in)
    • C = 533mm (21in)
