Washable paper

Our bags are made from 100% paper (cellulose fibers). They are texturally and visually leather-like, thanks to the stretching and tanning of the eco-cellulose fibres during the manufacturing process. That is why our Paplebags are a popular alternative for vegan bags. Washable paper is a beautiful sustainable material.
