From 2010 Olympic Banner to Tote Bag


Here’s a fantastic opportunity that we want to share with as many people as possible…Common Thread, a cooperative of Canadian social enterprise sewing programs, is producing a few hundred tote bags from re-purposed 2010 Olympic banners. If you think a re-purposed banner bag would be a good fit for your promotions, act soon and you could get a limited edition set (customized with your organization’s logo or campaign message).

What is Common Thread?

Common Thread sources street banners and other fabric for re-purposing into colourful and durable products such as tote bags, drawstring back packs, lunch bags, note book covers and more. Production is coordinated through a network of social enterprises (businesses with a social purpose as their primary motivation) and creates employment for newcomers to Canada and Aboriginal communities, among others. Many of the social enterprises have been started and continue to be hosted by non-profit organizations.

Last year Fairware worked with Common Thread to produce tote bags from SFU banners – that McCuaig and Associates, a client of ours, used instead of wrapping paper for their year end corporate gift.

If you’re interested in a high-quality, unique promotional item that is made in Canada and supports local communities,  act soon, material is available for about 600 bags. Give us a call (604-732-3247) and we’ll provide you with all the details.
