3. Fabric bags are washable and reusable. It can be used for many years, depending on the raw material used, sewing quality, usage areas and shape. In fact, Pure cotton bags often become softer and smoother with use.


4. A fabric bag can carry a number of sarees without undergoing wear and tear. Plastic bags crack open at the corners and sewing line if it is not able to take the heavyweight of the saree or damaged while carrying. This exposes the sarees to the dust and friction. Fabric bags are capable of carrying more number of sarees at a time. Just like cotton saree bags you can store multiple sarees according to the size and volume.

6.  Pure cotton provides a natural soothing cover for the sarees. The designer, fine embroidery sarees need soft and pure material to avoid damage. No artificial colours are used in the fabric bags which might not be the case with plastic cover bags.

7. Fabric bags like cotton are made from antibacterial material that ensures the safety of the material. But the synthetic saree bags like plastic have toxins available in artificial fabrics. Plastic covers have heavy chemicals which react with the saree, infiltrating the dye and changing the colour of your beautiful saree.

Fabric bags like cotton are made from cellulose, a naturally occurring polymer, which is known to absorb moisture up to 25 times their weight. Cotton bags can keep your saree dry even in monsoon season, which is not true with plastic bags. Plastic saree bags will trap the moisture in the saree, damaging the texture of the saree.
