There are plenty of textile bags around, and most of them are made of cotton. The E001 KOTKIN tote and the E002 WEISZ shopping bag are made of French flax, a simple fiber used in fine, robust weaves that is well served by the wet climate of Normandy and requires no chemicals of the kind that contaminate the soil in which it grows.
This won’t lead to FREITAG bags that all look the same. That's why you can now select a carrying strap made from a piece of recycled truck tarp with a carabiner. Known as the F252 BANDIT, it gives the textile bags a touch more individuality as well as an alternative way of carrying them.
