Being organised is has always been the key to being successful. In life, there are many trips to be taken be it abroad or a simple trip to the gym where daily essentials are required to be taken along.

The usefulness of cotton bags – A drawstring bag easily fastens with a pull of the ropes which in turn your items or laundry securely in the cotton bag acting as a liner preventing odours from spreading to your main bag. It can be taken out for camping trips, vacations or to the gym.

With the objective of being eco-friendly, our cotton drawstring bags are made of cotton which is a renewable, sustainable and biodegradable material.
