Every pouch is designed for a specific weight. And to bear the weight, the walls of the paper pouch must be flexible. In case there is less flexibility and elasticity in the walls of the paper, then the internal force applied by the packed item can tear the paper and it can lead to spillage and loss of packed item.
The next step that needs a blue tick is the tearing check. We don’t know that sometimes we unknowingly keep our pouches with any sharp or pointed object, or sometimes anything gets pricked into the pouch accidentally.
