There are five sizes of VZWraps:
the mini, which can hold a gift card or something small like jewelry,
a wine bottle bag, which can also be used to wrap a scarf, body lotions or cosmetics
the standard 10” x 15” bag
a medium 17” x 19” bag
and large, which can be either 20” x 27” or 21” x 24” depending on the fabric.
The bags are made from 100% cotton and the sizes are based on no-waste cutting, so that all the fabric is used leaving no scraps behind. Most of the ribbons are made in the USA, primarily from recycled materials. There is eco-grosgrain, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, and eco-satin, made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester.
