COTTON : 100% sustainable

Cotton fiber is a totally sustainable and renewable resource which makes it perfect for conference swag.

Millions of tonnes of cotton each year is spun into yarn and thread for use in textiles, cloth, clothing and of course your swag bag!

Cotton is washable, strong and durable, which means that your swag is more likely to be re-used than disposed of


Cotton has been used for centuries for clothing, bags and all kinds of textile based products.

The wide use of cotton means that sustainable promotional items are cost effective and on trend!

Most popular cotton items are lanyards, tote bags, drawstring bags, t-shirts, caps and popular brandable clothing items such as aprons, blankets, cases and more.
