About Us

Big Brown Carrier Bag is a small paper carrier bag company offering highly competitive prices on printed and unprinted carrier bags – and not just big brown ones! Our paper bags come in a wide range of colours and sizes for a multitude of uses, from kraft paper bags ideal for takeaway food to large paper bags suitable for gifting and natural cotton ‘bags for life’.

We are experts in bespoke printing onto bags – anything from a small picture to a large full colour logo or design can be completed for you onto recycled or recyclable material. If you have a bag printing idea you want to discuss, just phone us on 01404 758664 or contact us via email.

Our Customers

The variety we offer in terms of bag printing enables us to provide a first-rate recycled bag service to a wide range of customers. Our customers range from home-based bakers and makers to large public sector organisations like the NHS and the BBC. In between we have restaurants and takeaways, boutiques, bookshops, knitting shops, artisan craft outlets, the brownies and scouts, and catering suppliers, to name a few.


Founded in 2005, we quickly became respected for excellent customer service and great value & quality carrier bag products. Our warehouse is located in Leeds, but we are based in Bristol and sell to businesses, organisations and individuals across the UK, Ireland, and Channel Islands.

Our constant aim is to build on our reputation and introduce new product lines. If there is something specific that you're looking for, simply let us know so we can provide you with our well-earned expertise.
