The Hinza bag

The Hinza plastic tote bag is manufactured in Sweden. It is excellent for storage – a colourful, stylish alternative for keeping things organized at home and at the office. The Hinza bag provides easy access to your crafts, tools and toys.

The tote bag is as obvious a choice for picnics and outings as for pool parties and shopping trips. It is perfect for hobby and gardening jobs as it is sturdy and easy to clean. The classical stylish shape makes it fit in anywhere, the plastic material allows it to withstand almost anything it is exposed to.

The Hinza bag is available in two sizes, the smaller version is a perfect fit for a bicycle basket.

The many colours and the two sizes means everyone can find their favorite. There is a Hinza bag for everything and everyone!

Hinza Green plastic

The eco-friendly Green Plastic version of the Hinza bag is produced from a renewable raw material sourced from sugar cane.

When sugar cane is growing, it absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When green plastic made from sugar cane is burned, the carbon dioxide is released back into the atmosphere. As the total amount of carbon dioxide does not increase, as it does when ordinary plastic from fossil raw materials is burned, there is no impact on climate.

The sugar cane used to produce the plastic for our Green Plastic bags is grown on Brazilian plantations that are located at least 2,500 km from the Amazon.

Green plastic is recycled in the same way as conventional plastics. Variations in the surface layer may occur.


The Hinza plastic tote bags are made of polyethylene plastics. The Green Plastic-version of the bag is made from sugarcane.

The bags, except for the accessories, are produced in Hillerstorp in Sweden. The factory is certified to the quality and environment ISO-standards 9001 and 14001.

The large version of the Hinza bag is a Swedish classic, designed in the 1950s by the Swedish plastic and chemical company Perstorp AB.  The bag was named Shopping Bag 329 and it is the model for today’s Hinza bag.

The striped plastic tote bag quickly became popular in Swedish homes as it was useful for a multitude of purposes, not least for carrying groceries. In the mid-1960s, grocery stores began offering customers disposable plastic bags, which resulted in production of the bag being shut down.

Karin Bachstätter, great granddaughter of the founder of Perstorp AB, has always had these practical plastic bags presence in her life. With the development of a new environmental awareness, Karin and her parents founded Hinza in 2006 to re-start the production of the bags.
