Designed to be safer, more stable and stronger, Hankraft is made to improve on the paper sack. With a paper-like outer layer and a strong multi-layer structure beneath, Hankraft is puncture resistant, low-slip and water resistant. The matt or sheen surface is available in a range of colours and can be stitched and heat sealed to meet your requirements.


  • Compliant with European regulations for materials in contact with food
  • Takes up less than a quarter of the space of an equivalent paper sack
  • 50% lighter than a paper sack of the same size
  • Reducing your carbon footprint
  • Easier to recycle when replacing polythene lined paper sacks


Products made from Hankraft are 100% recyclable to ensure an environmentally aware end product.
