    I do like these bags. They work well, and four of them are just about perfect for grocery shopping for a family of four. The long handle is great, and the construction is good quality. My only complaints are; 1., the price. They’re pretty expensive for a bag. I found after I purchased them that they’re more reasonably priced on the manufacturers website, and they often have shipping deals. My other complaint is major. The first time I washed the bags, they shrunk to about half the size, and I did NOT put them in the dryer. I liked them much better before I washed them. That said, they do the job and I like that they’re fair wage. From now on, I’ll buy them direct from the manufacturer and not wash them until I absolutely have to.

    Shrinks even when laundering instructions are followed, March 4, 2011

    I like canvas bags. I have lots of them and use them to carry groceries, books, hardware, clothes, etc. I’ve washed lots of canvas bags and never had one shrink. This Ecobags canvas bag shrank even when washed in cold water. Ecobags should have use preshrunk canvas.

    Additionally, the straps are not 22″. Mine are 9″ from the top edge of the bag to the middle of the handle which makes it more suitable for hand carrying.

    I was very disappointed with the purchase of this product for the following reasons. The dimensions that are given are for the bag prior to being washed. In other words, the canvas was not preshrunk before the bag was assembled. The bag shrunk in size by over an inch in width and height. I have several other canvas bags, so I know how to care for canvas bags. They are to be washed in cold water and hung to dry. The canvas material used in making these bags was very thin and inferior. I would not recommend these bags, as I believe it is not a quality product.
