|What does it look and feel like?
Patch handle carrier bags combine good looks with quality and strength and are generally considered a step up from your average "vest" type supermarket carrier which favours function over form. This patch handle carrier is manufactured from a low density polythene which means it feels smooth and thick to touch when compared with a supermarket carrier. Low density polythene also lacks the noisy scrunch that is often associated with cheaper, lower quality carrier bags like supermarket carriers. As such, you'll find patch handle carrier bags are popular with retailers who want to suggest an air of quality about their products.
|What's it used for?
A general purpose, good quality carrier bag, popular with fashion retailers and those selling quality product lines. Typically use for packaging skirts, shirts, trousers, knitwear and hats as well as toys and quality household goods, craft items and framed pictures.
As the name suggests, owing to its wider dimension, this bag is particularly popular with fashion retailers and is ideal for suits, jackets and other bulky fashion lines. It's also frequently used for towels and bedding, larger framed pictures as well as numerous other bulky products where width is required.
