|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 high density polythene like a supermarket carrier but is considerably thicker. The result is a bag that crunches a little like a crisp packet but is smooth and thick to touch when compared with a supermarket carrier. You'll find high density patch handle carrier bags in many of the big high street retailers, particularly fast fashion retailers like H&M, River Island and Topshop. This type of carrier bag suggests good quality but not premium products.
