 MATERIALS fine Made in Italy satin dustbags sleeperbags for fashion

Flannel cotton

Flannel cotton is the most used material to make sleeper bags for luxury fashion goods.  In fact, the soft flannel protects precious leather and other fashion goods, has a soft touch, a warm feeling and is automatically associated with quality and luxury.

Our flannel fabric is 100% cotton and Made in Italy.  It is typically flannelled on both sides.  If your products are prone to catching lint (such as apparel, canvas handbags etc.) we can use a single-sided flannel so that the inside of the sleeper bag - dustbag will be smooth and your products will not catch lint.

LOGOS       custom Made in Italy dustbags sleeperbags for handbags and fashionPrinted logo Custom Made in Italy dustbags for fashion, handdbags.  Embroidered logo.

Embroidered logo

Your logo will be typically printed on one side of the dustbag / sleeperbag by silk screen printing.  In most cases the logo is printed in a single solid colour but 2, 3, 4 colours are also possible. The print is however in solid colours, line art.  That is shades and gradients cannot be printed. Any Pantone colour plus gold or silver can be used for printing your logo on the dustbags / sleeper bags. You can upload your logo in our estimate form.  Please make sure that the logo is in a graphics format such as EPS, AI, PSD, JPG, PDF and of a high enough resolution to print clearly filling an A4 sheet of paper when it is printed on a regular office printer.  For your success, we recommend to print the logo large, centered and in a contrasting colour to the material, so it can be read very well. Note: by placing an order you confirm to be the legal owner or licensee of the logo that you want to be printed.

Your logo can also be embroidered.  The additional cost of embroidery can be considerable, however.  We recommend embroidery for truly luxurious packaging, high value content.   The cost of embroidery varies upon size and number of colours to be used in the embroidery.

SIZES manufactures fine Italian dustbags and sleeperbags for fashion.  Size chart Here at we can manufacture your sleeperbags / dustbags in any size. If your products size range is small, we recommend to use a "one-size-fits-all" approach, that way you can keep things simpler and limit costs.  Whereas if your products range dramatically in size you will have to make your dustbags /sleeper bags in more than one size.  We see however that in most cases a brand can get away with 3 sizes. Also try to determine a logo size that can be printed on all dustbags sizes.  In fact, to print your logo larger or smaller,  additional silk screens will have to be made for each printe size, which have a one-time cost of appx Euro 175 each. For your convenience, in our estimate form  we offer 20 preset sizes which are proven over the years to work best for certain fashion products.  You can also specify your custom size, there is no additional cost.  If you are not sure about size, before placing the order, by all means test with a mockup dustbag to make sure that your product will fit in the size that you will order!  A rough formula for calculating the required size of dustbags / sleeper bag is the following: given that a, b and c are respectively the lenght, height and depth of your product (say a handbag for example) then the dustbag width required will be = a+b; while the dustbag height will be = b+c+5cm.  But again, do test with a mockup before placing your order! About measurements, please note that because of the stretch of different fabric materials and because our products are hand stitched, our products have a dimensional tolerance of +/-  5 millimeters.  Please take this into account if you have strict dimensional constraints. 
CUSTOM can manufacture your dustbag / sleeper bag completely according to your custom specifications.  This includes custom design, custom materials, custom colours, custom hardware.  Note that because of the constraints posed by the minimum orders required by our suppliers for custom materials and components, completely customized dustbags are typically made when projected quantities are in the order of 2,000 pieces or more. Please contact us  with details about your particular project and we will get back to you with preliminary feedback and cost estimates.
