Just remember that the red will darken a good bit once it gets wetted out by the epoxy. It turns a very dark red. Red Burlap keeps it color better, but the open weave/texture can create air bubble issues. I have done Burlap where I separate the strands and mix those in, but they don't show up well.

do they hold up well? since it is plastic i was wondering if the quality would last as long as a wooden handle

Plastic?? It's fabric soaked in epoxy and compressed. The epoxy I use is designed to build boats and laminate the layers of wood and fiberglass mesh in that process. It's completely waterproof and food safe; they use the epoxy to line water tanks. It's very tough stuff! I've beaten on some of the scraps with a hammer on a concrete floor and it barely scuffed the surface. I have a 6 ton shop press and finally was able to crack one of the pieces I did earlier. It was a orange/red burlap layered laminate with 2 layers of each color alternating.When I had the press almost maxed out, the piece finally cracked. When I looked at the crack, it was where the burlap had open spaces and where it cracked was different in each layer based on where the fabric wasn't. Withstood to around 5 tons plus of pressure on it.
