ACCESSORIES | My Paper Bag

Meet my schoolbag, groceries bag, shopping bag and even my clutch for a night out. I use this thing almost every day. A dutch piece of design by Ramon Middelkoop called My Paper Bag.

It is produced by the fairtrade guidelines and made out of environmentally friendly fabricated leather. I love to roll it up like a paper lunchbag, fold it in half and carry it under my arm when it's empty and drag around my 6 kilo weighing burdon of books and laptop for school in it.

And in case you were wondering.. no I didn't get payed to write this, it just really a great product. Order my paper bag here! (they do ship internationally if you contact them by email)

Astrid Emilie said...

Were is your nailpolish, your ring and your lipstick from? Buy the way: It's a very nice bag and blog you have ;)

environmental-friendly fabricated leather?
i'm sorry, but it doesn't exist.

FASHION ICE said...

love your lipstick

Ivania said...

@ mari
yes it does! because normally it is a very chemical process to get the leather in an even color and to get it soft and supple. When you buy these bags they are rough and the leather is almost raw. After a few weeks of using them the leather becomes soft on itself.

It looks like a great bag! I would love a tote like that--if only I didn't have so many books to take to school. I've learned to forego leather bags for cheaper canvas alternative until I start leading a life of fewer 1,500 page text books!

I just did a D.I.Y post because I was inspired by a bag like this. I love the concept and even thought of making my own large version.

Your bag is great! May I know the brand and name of the nail polish you are wearing in this post?? I've been looking for that color for a long time. Thanks a lot!!

potpie du monde said...

Ivania said...

@ anonymous
I got the nailpolish from a very random cheap local store. I wish I could tell you a brand name that has such bright neon nailpolishes that would be available easily for everyone but I don't know. But maybe it's a good mission to find out! stay tuned!

Anonymous said...

I live here in Utrecht so I would really like the name of that store, and maybe the adress?

crazy pig said...

it's a great bag! One of the most unique ones I've ever seen, yet so simple... And definitely very practical! Just way too expensive for me. Damn.
