The products last a long time and are very durable. We have found that they do wear well, but printing on bags does eventually wear off with time and friction. Thus, for the Dave’s wallets and satchels, we will fuse (heat) a clear plastic bag as the top layer of the panel of material we create so as to protect the great graphics on the Dave’s bread bags. The plastic material can’t tear. It can puncture, so no sharp objects should be placed in an upcycled product!
