A Great Selection of Bags

A quality bag is essential for work, travel, the gym and much more besides. At Universal Textiles we stock a wide range of bags ideal for all such occasions. In this blog we take a look at a small selection of the bags available on our website.

Firstly from Quadra we have this Universal Holdall Bag. Quadra have built a reputation for providing durable and fashionable bags. Their collection of modern, functional, value for money carrying solutions includes this large (35 litres) holdall bag. Great for the gym or travel, this bag comes in seven colours and has multiple pockets, allowing easy access to the bag’s content. The bag also has protective base feet and an adjustable shoulder strap.

The Shugon Hi-Vis Rucksack is ideal for work and used by many for safety and practicality when cycling. The bag has a large 23 litre capacity and several internal pockets. A rubber outlet for earphones allows you to listen to music without fear of your MP3 player being subjected to weather damage, whilst the bag also has an expandable front pocket to fit a ball or helmet.

Again from Quadra we have this Vintage Canvas Messenger Bag. Whether for work or school, this timeless design is an excellent fit for books or documents. Both casual and stylish, the washed canvas design of the bag is complemented by a subtle contrast styled strap.

This Retro Bowling Bag from Bagbase is perfect for the gym. It has a large capacity of 23 litres and has internal mesh and zippered pockets. The bag is adorned with a classic two stripe detail and has strong fabric carry handles.

We stock a variety of sports bags ideal for more specific pursuits as well as the gym. An example of this is the KooGa Boot Bag. The bag is able to comfortably hold shoes and boots up to a size 12, but is not too large for children’s boots, with room for shin pads and other necessary sporting equipment. The bag has the KooGa logo printed on the front and is easy to clean, an essential after a muddy game of football or rugby!

Lastly we have this Barcelona Trolley Holdall Bag from Shugon. This bag is great for airport travel as it has a retractable handle and wheels enabling it to be both pulled as a trolley and carried as a holdall. The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap, one large (53 litres) compartment and an internal base board for protection and shape retention.
