Banner to Bag Program by Common ThreadThe Flag Shop and Common Thread
Together we give street banners a new life
and bring you beautiful bag products
When those bright and beautiful street banners have served their usefulness in your community, give them eternal life by turning them into carrying bags. Each piece is hand sewn by experienced seamstresses at Common Thread Cooperative.Turn your out-of-commission street banners into brand new tote bags
Some municipalities sell their street banners as collectors’ items, why not turn those banners into bags?
Virtually indestructible, they could replace thousands of plastic bags in a lifetime. A neat and green idea! Banner bags are strong, washable and fold into a small package that fits into your pocket or purse.About Common Thread
