PRO-DURA™

Prolamina is a leader in domestically manufactured woven bags, producing puncture resistant structures that offer maximum flexibility and reliability. Our PRO-DURA BAGs feature high-quality graphic application, offering the best of both durability and appeal, without the historically problematic shelf-worn look of paper bags with a clay-coated surface.

United States manufacturing allows for reduced lead times, lower shipping costs, and greater quality assurance. And of course, our woven poly bags meet FDA and BRC standards. The versatile product features of Prolamina’s PRO-DURA BAGS satisfy each customer’s specific needs.

Pinch-Bottom Woven Poly Bags

Our exclusive pinch-bottom woven poly bags can be combined with slider zipper, pinch at both ends (we seal one end, you seal the other), and traditional sewn closures to meet any requirement.
