These paper bags have flat paper handles and are a popular alternative to plastic carrier bags. The bags have five-fold reinforced handles and a reinforcing base sheet, providing a high weight capacity. This range of flat-handle bags are commonly known as take-away carriers and are ideal for fashion retailers, gift shops and food retailers.
Once opened, these paper bags have a flat bottom, which increases the bags' capacity and allows them to stand upright, even when empty. Traditionally, this paper bag design is known as 'Self Opening Satchel', or SOS bag. The bags are 70-100 GSM and are fully recyclable.
