Since 1914.

Mr. Harry Zussman built a business from scratch by recycling used burlap bags from farmers, ranchers, and the grain and feed industry in Colorado.

Harry began Central Bag & Burlap Co. (CBBC) in what is today LoDo on Market Street in Denver in 1914. He would clean, patch, sort, bale and resell the bags, earning a reputation as an honest, reliable, and hard-working businessman.

We strive to perpetuate his ingenuity and resourcefulness by offering quality eco-friendly and sustainable packaging products.
