Thank you very much for processing my order for the fabulous bags. I have used one myself for sometime and was wanting to buy some for my friends. GREAT BAG. LOVE THE COLOURS. Many thanks.
Lovely, strong and reliable bags. I just keep giving them for gifts & they are always so happily received. Thanks for such a great product.
My sister bought us some of your bags a few years ago from a market in Brisbane. I think we have been through about 5 already (all lost, none broken). They are really handy, especially when traveling as they can carry so much weight without coming close to breaking.
I bought my first Econet bags in 2006 after a friend gave me a shoulder bag as a gift and I an still using them as well as others I have bought since then. I think the Econet bag concept is wonderful in its simplicity. I love these bags for so many reasons. Here’s just a few:
They are so compact, I have 8 of them in a pouch my handbags so I NEVER forget them and I use them all the time, they are not sitting in a cupboard or boot of my car – out of sight, out of mind – so whether I am shopping for groceries, clothing or whatever they are readily accessible.
They are bright and colourful. People are always commenting on how great they look visually.
They truly are stretchy and strong. I have never tested the upper limit of their holding power but 8 of these bags generally cope with a complete grocery shop.
Being washable, I can put meat, milk and vegies in the bags and if something leaks, the bag gets rinsed (or into the washer), shaken and it’s dry in a flash.
I am still using the bags I bought way back in 2006. They still look great for something that has been used week in and week out for quite a long time. Some have a couple of holes but still work well and the holes haven’t enlarged.
They make quirky “token” gifts (even as a Kriss Kringle) because they are thoughtful and useful.
Finally, I live the fact that something so simple helps me “do my bit” for the environment. I very rarely bring home plastic shopping bags any more.
Lovi , thank you for putting these bags out there. It is always a pleasure dealing with you. My first bags were bought from stockist, but it is great to be able to buy them directly from you. I really do think they are a wonderful product which I hope more and more people will learn about and use.
I just wanted to let you know how popular your bags have been amongst friends here in the UK and some from the continent.
I was given two bags by my daughters. They hide in the bottom of my handbag taking no space and causing no trouble until I go shopping and produce them at the counter like a rabbit out of a hat! They never fail to impress and I’m always surprised by how much they can carry.
Thank you very much for the shopping bag. It went straight into my handbag and has already been in use.
I was given a Patonga Pouch when someone came to stay at my house in England. Everyone has asked me where I got it from and expressed an interest in having one as they are so simple but very useful. We do not have anything quite like it in the UK!!
Love the new designs & the new colours.
I discovered your cool bags on my last visit to Sydney where my sister lives. I have had soooo many compliments on my Patonga Pouch! I have an Ocean Blue/Rose colored bag.
