We would like to introduce our company, Bags Direct, which is well-established in South Africa and has, over the past few years, expanded its distribution into neighboring countries such as Namibia, Botswana, Malawi, Seychelles, and Mauritius.
We are proud suppliers to retailers, including PEP, PnP, Tekkie Town, Mr Price, TFG, and Massmart, to name a few.
On the online front, which continues to outperform, Takealot, One Day Only, Everyshop, Makro, and AVO.
This year, our company will celebrate 25 years of successful distribution of our ever-growing ranges, including but not limited to:
- RE-USABLE SHOPPERS
- BACK TO SCHOOL
- ECO-FRIENDLY KITCHEN & HOMEWARE
- GLASSWARE & BAR ACCESSORIES
The company traces its roots back to the 1970s under the banner of Travelex as a manufacturing operation. Since then, our name changed to Bags Direct as its main focus lay in the bag industry.
In the subsequent years, due to our market penetration, it was decided to expand our ranges offered to accommodate the ever-growing trends from our clients.
In 2019, the company was joined by Luciano Levy, who, as a young entrepreneur having successfully completed his degree in online marketing and brand management, saw the opportunity to grow our online presence.
As such, we are excited to launch our online platform trading as ECOLIFESTYLE.SHOP, which caters to the consumer seeking eco-friendly products.
Our journey continues with Luciano opening our first office in Barcelona in early 2024 where our main focus will be to expand our sustainable shopper range, which has become one of our most popular lines due to the ban on plastics.
The new Spanish operation will also concentrate on its online platform, which will cater to Amazon and El Corte Inglés.
Our track record has proven our resilience and adaptability in these challenging economic times, and we strive to evolve to position the company to better tailor our products to suit our clients' needs and expectations in both quality and versatility.
We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their continued support.
