Incredibly helpful from initial contact to delivery - product was incredibly high quality and came out exactly as we envisioned it. Was looking to produce a borderless design to cover the whole canvas tote bag and Supreme Creations were the perfect partner to deliver our designs. Will definitely use them again :)
I've used Supreme Creations since 2014. They've always delivered on leading brands I've worked for and accommodated the bespoke projects, tight turnaround times, last minute design changes and finer details of all bags I've had made with them. I've always said a tote bag should go beyond it's initial purpose of advertising, it should be the accessory to someones lifestyle.. That's what Supreme do and I would highly them recommend to anyone.

OUR SATISFIED CUSTOMERS AND BRANDS
Our wholesale reusable bags and customised home textiles have been used to promote well known international brands as well as many smaller enterprises.
OUR CREDENTIALS AND AWARDS
Our Eco Friendly bags and ethical standards have been recognised by many prestigious industry bodies and international organisations.
Grocery Bags :
The average person consumes up to 200 single-use plastic carrier bags each year when they go grocery shopping. By producing a range of reusable calico tote bags, you are directly contributing to the reduction of plastic bags and encouraging your customers to reuse instead of buying disposable products. Plastic supermarket bags are sent to landfill as non-biodegradable waste and often end up polluting the world’s oceans. Our calico bags are made of 100% natural cotton and will eventually degrade. They also carry up to 15kg of groceries and can be reused 5,000 times – meaning that your customers can feel secure in the knowledge that their reusable calico bag won’t break, no matter how much shopping they buy.
School Bags :
Take advantage of our excellent wholesale calico bag offers and kit out your whole school, college or university with a reusable cotton carrier bag. We can print anything on your printed calico bags - logos, photos, messages, anniversaries or artwork. They are the perfect shape and size for carrying all educational essentials – from laptops and textbooks to lunchboxes and pencil cases. Ordering wholesale means that you can supply your fresher’s fairs or open days with cost-effective, reusable bags that will continue to be useful for many school years to come.
Travel Bags :
Our wholesale calico bags make great travel bags for any trip – from family holidays to business trips. Advertise your brand effortlessly overseas and print your designs on both sides. Small calico tote bags are perfect for carrying items such as tablets, wallets, or cosmetics and larger calico totes are ideal for using as carryon luggage and will comfortably carry your books, laptops and a change of clothes. These bags are brilliant for taking out and about once you reach your destination and can be taken to the beach, on shopping trips or picnics or carried around a new city. When they are empty, they will fold up neatly into your pocket or handbag.
The War on Plastic :
2019 is the year of the war on plastic. We are ditching carrier bags, coffee cups, and plastic straws alike in favour of more sustainable alternatives. Plastic is most definitely out, whereas reusable is most definitely in – don’t be left out of this plastic-free revolution and work with us to make a reusable calico bag that is sustainable, ethical, eco-friendly and involves absolutely no plastic. This will help portray your business in a good light, whilst also helping the sustainably effort alike.
Environmental Impact :
Globally, we produce over 5 trillion single-use plastic bags every single year. That means that every second, 160,000 plastic bags are made and most of these have an average lifespan of just 12 minutes until they are thrown away. When a plastic bag is discarded, it will find its way into a landfill where it will try (and fail) to degrade while emitting harmful off-gasses that contribute to global warming. This is because plastic is derived from non-renewable oil, which is a diminishing resource. Our reusable calico tote bags can be reused over 5,000 times and so support plastic bag reduction. Our mission is to produce our tote bags in ways that benefit the planet, instead of harming it. We offer a bag which is made of 100% natural, ethically sourced, unbleached cotton. Our natural cottons are created from fibres that are grown in a field – not made in a lab – and so they will biodegrade at the end of their life. Natural calico material also responds well to all of our eco-friendly printing and dyeing methods, so your prints will look fresh throughout the bag’s life. The inks and print paste that we use are reaching compliant.
Social Impact :
Every product we produce at Supreme Creations/Bags of Ethics is made at our factory in Pondicherry, South India. By owning our factory, we can guarantee transparency in our supply chain and ensure that we benefit everybody who works to produce your calico tote bags. In India, our workforce is 90% female, and most of these women are the main breadwinners for their families. We value the welfare and wellbeing of all of our staff and ensure we have strict and up-to-date regulations for fair wages and working conditions. Fairtrade recognises our efforts in the factory, and our natural, calico cotton fabric is Fairtrade certified, meaning that you can ensure everybody in the supply chain of your tote shopping bag is paid fairly.
