Ah.. this is genious!!
If there ever was a love at first sight, this is it!!! I LOVE this paper bag!
It was designed by Saskia Diez and Stefan Diez. This bag (part of their "Papier" series) can even serve as a travel bag, and instead of using leather and reinforced textiles to make it, the designers went for synthetic paper that is extremely lightweight and durable, even water-proof and tear-proof.
What's best about it - The material is completely recyclable.
"Papier" won the German Designpreis 2010.
