these 'papier' bags by german designer saskia kiez are made of DuPont 'Tyvek', so they are recyclable, tear-proof, waterproof, and extremely light. paper!
the pictures say it all.... even show the process. the look of the bag changes as it is used, the wrinkles almost giving it the feeling of old leather.
they go on sale in very select stores and on kiez' site in april. i have no idea how much they'll be...... but just in time for my birthday.
