Description

Wine is one of the best and most versatile gifts you can bring to most celebrations. Wine bags are a great way to present them, especially if it's made with eco-friendly, tree-free paper. You can also use the bags to gift other bottles like artisanal jams, marmalades, olive oil, beer or any other spirit. 

This special paper is crafted from 100% cotton hosiery waste scrap fabric, discarded by cotton t-shirt manufacturers. The paper is Processed Chlorine-Free (PCP) and is unbleached, making the product and the process earth-friendly.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

Artisans first blend scrap fabric with water until the mixture becomes a watery paste. To create the broad spectrum of colors, vibrant azo-free dyes are added at this stage. Artisans then pull wire mesh screens through tubs filled with the mixture, forming sheets. These wet sheets are skillfully transferred from the screen into stacks, each sheet separated with layers of fabric. Excess water is first removed using a hydraulic press, then individual sheets are hung to dry. Once fully dry, each sheet is pressed flat. Many are then embellished with beautiful screen print designs.
