Newsbagger March 2018

Greetings from sunny Kolkata! I’m writing this from our office in India, ‘The City of Joy’ which is around 2 hours from Badhuria where our bag production facility is based. At this time of year, the city is awash with bright colours as Holi celebrations signify the start of spring. You’ll notice in tribute, we’ve kept this issue of eNewsbagger equally vibrant and colourful to remind us all that spring is finally here!

It is a very pleasant 25 degrees here but the temperatures will soon start to heat up as we head toward the monsoon season which will break in July - regular as clockwork. That means it’s also the perfect time to get the ball rolling for your custom made bags to be made ahead of the monsoon season. I promise you, getting ahead now will save you time, pain and money, so give myself or the team a call so we can help you plan ahead.

As ever, we are always keen to hear from you, and see how your bags are doing. Reach us on 020 7737 9502, or email bags@wbc.co.uk or share with us on twitter@bagsforlife.

In addition to our ‘custom made’ digital print service, we are now offering the option to digitally print your bags using our express service. If you’ve yet to discover the quality of digital print, be sure to read our blog featuring the London Science Museum and how digital is taking print design to new levels. With a minimum order of just 100 bags, this service comes at a premium but means you can print full-colour photographic designs on to an 8oz Canvas bag within just 2 weeks from sign off.

This is ideal if you want to capitalise on a last minute seasonal event, a product launch or something the whole nation is going to get behind, like the upcoming Royal Weddings!

Bag Of The Month
Bag Of The Month | Harvest
Inspired by the vibrant colours of the Hindu Holi festival, we have chosen these colourful Harvest N16 cotton tote bags as our Bag Of The Month (#BOTM) for March. We think they’re the perfect example of how effective it can be to create a cohesive range of tote bags using different prints and colours. As you plan your future bag designs, why not consider offering a collection, or a choice of colours. Creating a series of collectable keepsakes that appeal to wider variety of tastes, can be a great way to build loyalty and inspire repeat business.

Harvest N16 is an organic food store and cafe based in London’s foodie Stoke Newington, working with our in-house design team trying to match budget to aspirations we managed to save significant setup costs and materials by using the same design across multiple colours!

The Cocobagh project is our social business venture in West Bengal, that’s finding ways to give local women employment and the chance to learn the art of sewing and stitching. Launched in 2015, it’s still going strong. This was Jo and Laura’s first time visiting India, our production facilities and meeting the women in the Cocobagh project. Here’s a few words from about their visit and the joy of taking part in India’s vibrant Holi festival.
