Durable macramé

Durable Macramé is a firm 100% cotton yarn. It’s perfect for macramé projects like wall hangings and plant hangers, but also suitable for crochet projects. I love working with it because it’s so sturdy! This bag will last a long time! It will be the perfect protector and carrier of your Dopper bottle.

It’s available in 31 colours!


Aren’t they pretty?? A Dopper leaves no excuse for single-use water bottles. I mean, we’re so over throwing away plastic and we all support the #plastiban completely, don’t we?! Did you notice it’s a bottle and cup in one? Awesome!

The bottle is produced sustainably. And yes, most Doppers are made from plastic, but the kind of plastic you can use again, and again, and again. When you’re done with it – which you probably never will be – it can be fully recycled!

The Dopperbag is suitable for Dopper bottles. Check if it’s also suitable for your bottle:
