As one of the backpack factories in China, we feel obliged to make bags from recycled materials. Backpacks are most eco-friendly when it is made from recycled materials or are renewed from recycled bags. These are called recycled backpacks. The recycled backpack is a great alternative to traditionally manufactured backpacks. Not only because it saves the material waste, but also because it has a quality so high that you just cannot distinguish it from a traditionally manufactured backpack. So, how does a backpack factory produce recycled backpacks exactly? Please let me introduce that to you in the following contents.


The materials that could be used by backpack factories to manufacture recycled backpacks range from recycled polyester to the leader in vegetable tanning to natural cotton. However, even though there are so many choices, there are only three most common material choices are used for manufacturing eco-friendly backpacks, which are recycled polyester, recycled cotton, and organic cotton. Well, maybe you will ask why there is still organic cotton exist in a recycled backpack. This is because the fibers produced from recycled cotton waste are relatively short and weak, backpack factories just can not put too much-recycled content in the cotton fabrics mixture. Usually, the limit for the recycled content in the cotton fabric mixture is 30%. On the other hand, 100% organic cotton is also able to be used to make fabrics for eco-friendly backpacks. Organic cotton fabric is actually not much more expansive than recycled cotton fabric. Therefore, when developing eco-friendly backpacks, organic cotton fabrics are also a good choice.


The materials that are recycled most often by backpack factories are polyester because the recycling production of them is quite easy. To recycle the polyester and use it for production, backpack factories will start to cut the collected materials into flakes after sorting and cleaning. Then, the flakes are melted into polyester fibers to make polyester fabrics, polyester sheets, or remade into PET bottles. In a nutshell, RPET can be made into a variety of fabrics suitable for making backpacks. The appearance and feel of RPET fabric are just the same as ordinary polyester fabric. That is why it is such a good choice for developing eco-friendly backpacks. Recycled cotton and organic cotton are also good choices, especially when customers don’t like the appearance of man-made fibers and prefer to develop something that looks more natural, backpack manufacturers who produce recycled backpacks usually would consider using fabrics made from recycled cotton, such as recycled canvas or recycled denim.
