Paper People Bag

The inspiration for this bag comes from the hashtag used by the company that makes Washpapa, the pleather material I have been using for my latest bags.

#ludziezpapieru roughly translates as “paper people”, so I thought how appropriate it would be to make a Washpapa bag design with a paper people chain as its theme.

Also appropriately big enough to carry a folder of A4 paper, the outside is in a colour called genua sahara (which resembles a brown paper bag), with the cut-out people made of the wrong side of this material!

In keeping with the theme, the handles are bamboo and the lining is a cotton fabric with a design of trees.

You probably already know that Washpapa is a combination of paper and latex that produces a strong, cruelty-free alternative to leather, certified with Oeko-tex and Forest Stewardship Council (SCS).

Now you can have an ethical bag while reliving childhood memories of cutting out those paper shapes.
