Request special bags with an example of advertising from the bag manufacturer Halfar


Special bags or technical bags are tailor-made bags for special challenges. Individual, functional and always special: because special bags are made for special applications. As tailor-made technical bags, they are far more than the solution to a transport or packaging problem. Because carefully developed special bags achieve many things: They protect. They organise. They keep important items close at hand. They improve the application. They create visibility in use. And they enable brands to present themselves in line with their CI by means of individual advertising. In short: special bags give products completely new qualities.

Technical bags, ready for your use

Actually, there is no field in which special bags cannot be used. After all, as tailor-made technical bags, they are made for special challenges. The list of special applications for our bags is long. And so are the industries and companies for which we have already had the pleasure of working. Here are a few typical areas of application for our technical bags and textile solutions:

  • Emergency bags for rescue forces from paramedics to fire brigade and from military to police 
  • Device bags for technology, equipment and machines that need to be transported and protected 
  • Protective bags for sensitive technology and for everything that is used in an environment that requires protection - whether from impact, dirt, heat and much more 
  • Transport bags with handles, shoulder straps, wheels and padding, ensure that even sensitive, heavy or bulky items can be transported comfortably. 
  • Tool bags transport, protect and sort tools and accessories in equal measure and give branded products a face. 
  • Straps/strap systems for holding and transporting. These textile solutions are 100% made to measure in terms of material and workmanship. 
  • Other textile products: from protective covers to transport and belt systems: we solve everything that can be solved with textiles. Let us talk about your requirements.

Why custom-made functional bags?

Functional bags and made-to-measure production - for us at Halfar this naturally goes together. Because special requirements need special answers. Standard off-the-shelf solutions do not help here. In the field of special bags, our customers come with a wide variety of expectations of "their" bag: you want to pack, protect, present or transport a product. You want to hand it over to customers, partners or employees more professionally or simply package it more attractively and add value. Then Halfar comes into play as a specialist for individual, high-quality and high-performance technical bags. We adapt to your needs and bring the experience that is required in this area.

Technical textiles as the answer to your questions

Technical textiles developed through your questions

Before we start to develop a bag solution, we take a close look at the requirements. We clarify many of our customers' questions in advance so that they can make an informed decision.

  • How do I get a bag that fits my product exactly if no standard solution is suitable?
  • How do I get a bag that fulfils additional functions? 
  • How can I present my products more attractively? 
  • How can equipment be better protected and transported? 
  • How can the bag contents and accessories be better organised? 
  • What does a special bag / technical bag offer in order to transport the brand better and to market individual advantages?

Why Halfar when it comes to special bags?

Halfar is the specialist for individual, high-quality and high-performance bags - and has been since decades. Armin Halfar founded the company in Bielefeld in 1986. His first self-sewn bag was an emergency bag. From his own service as a paramedic, Halfar knows about the requirements and aims to produce a better bag than the conventional ones. With success. This project marked the start of the company's history, which has since made a name for itself as the bag expert with special bags and promotional bags. Passion and care as well as quality and service are the hallmarks of all products from the Bielefeld bag forge. Why Halfar is also your partner for excellent bags, read here: That makes Halfar.

The areas of application and industries for which Halfar has already manufactured bags and technical textiles are diverse. See our references here.

The production and delivery time depends on the scope of the project, as well as the production location.

Depending on the complexity of the product, we offer technical bags and technical textiles even in small quantities - we will be happy to check the feasibility of your project. Contact us in the technical bags team.

We produce prototypes and small series at our company headquarters in Bielefeld. Larger runs are produced in other European countries and Asia.

REACH, LFGB, RoHS, VDA standards and CALIFORNIA P65 as well as MDR (for products that flow into medical technology), are just a few examples of standards and regulations that we can take into account during production. We draw on decades of experience in many different industries and are happy to provide consulting and educational services in this regard. Please contact us!

At Halfar, we value absolute reliability and the best quality. This includes strict quality management according to DIN ISO 9001:2015.
At our production sites, we also ensure the quality of our bags through regular checks and audits, defined release processes and our own quality inspectors.

A sustainable corporate policy is just as important to us as respecting human rights, maintaining occupational health and safety, and implementing social standards. Halfar is committed to this, among other things, as a DIN 14001:2015-certified and climate-neutral company, as well as a member of the amfori BSCI. Learn more about sustainability and social responsibility at Halfar.

When choosing the right material for a technical bag or a technical textile, not only aesthetic but also functional aspects and, depending on the intended use, standards or similar must be taken into account. For example, in medical technology we use materials that comply with MDR/biocompatibility.
In addition to common materials such as polyester, truck tarpaulin and polyamide, special fibers such as Cordura® or recycled polyester also come into question. Read more about this in the HALFAR® blog.
