The original Ecosilk bag is an attractive, all-purpose environmentally friendly shopping bag, first produced in 2001 to specifically replace single use plastic bags. Strong, light weight and compact, they are a recyclable bag, made from 100% nylon parachute silk in a large range of beautiful colours. Choosing a matching bag with your outfit of the day is fun and easy.
Ecosilk bags are reliable, easily carrying up to 14 kilos and are guaranteed to last for at least 5 years with daily or weekly use. The bag will take as much as you can pack into it – your arm is more likely to tire rather than the bag not coping with whatever weight you put in it. Ecosilk bags have no built in obsolescence – they are designed to be reused thousands of times – with stitching methods chosen for their strength and durability. A quick machine wash and line dry (cool iron only) will see your bag looking fresh, clean and ready to use. Their longevity means they have a small carbon footprint and combined with their recyclability means they are a solid environmentally friendly shopping bag.
Ecosilk bags have many uses in addition to shopping. They can be used as library bags for adults or children, for knitting or craft bags, or for wrapping up presents instead of using paper. They make excellent presents as they are light and compact to post, especially for overseas gifts, fitting neatly into envelopes. As a travel bag, they can be used not only for shopping but for laundry, for keeping shoes or underwear contained in your suitcase as well as being ideal ‘thank you’ gifts for hosts.
Ecosilk bags are 100% Australian owned and designed by Emily Hay. The bags are made in China to a high standard by fairly paid and ethically treated employees.
