PAPER TRAVEL BAG BY SASKIA DIEZ
Think Silly Store continues to introduce artistic and functional items from all over the world, such as Wacko Maria, JAM HOME MADE & ready made from Japan, as well as Acronym® and Bless from Germany previously. The latest entry, PAPIER, is also from Germany. Available in 115g or 135g, PAPIER is wholly made in recycled Tyvek® paper. Light, durable and water-proof, the material is paired with YKK zipper and a classy silver round tag. Slightly props — like, there is something rebellious about this experimental-looking item. Rebelling against leather as the only material for travel accessories, PAPIER turns to pioneering technology instead.
Saskia Diez, who studied in industrial design, is a jewelry designer. With a Berlin Mercedes Benz Fashion Week ‘Premium Fashion Award’ under her belt already, PAPIER is her new venture in the bag department. Each PAPIER item is packaged with a minimal card box and double-sided poster.
