Patch handle polythene bags are one of the most widely used carrier bags. They are commonly used on the high street for fashion outlets and sports outlets and also used in many exhibition or promotional situations.
The bags have reinforced handles. A small patch of polythene is placed behind the handle location during manufacture so that when the handle hole is punched out, the surrounding LDPE or HDPE is supported by an extra layer of usually clear polythene. This adds far great strength around this area and allows the carrier bag to be used for longer periods and carry more weight. Without the patch insert, the handle area tends to be one of the weaker spots on a carrier bag as when in use correctly, the handle will have to support all of the contents of the carrier bag.
The example shown here is for a drink promotion in Africa.
