Vela Glassine Bags - New and Improved!

EcoEnclose Glassine Bags, in partnership with Vela, are an innovative plastic-free wholesale solution for internal packaging, and a curbside recyclable alternative to a clear poly bag.

Glassine Bags are resistant to humidity, atmospheric moisture, and dust while maintaining breathability. The smooth and toothless paper ensures no fibers transfer onto your goods, yet they are durable enough for your supply chain - from manufacturer to distribution center to customer.

The translucent paper allows for visual inspection and barcode scanning, making them an ideal alternative to single-use plastic poly bags. We recommend ordering samples to test scannability in your environment.
