Lightweight Paper Luggage
The Offwhite Papier Travel Bag by Saskia Diez is Made for Durability

By: Michael Hemsworth (Superstar) May 11, 13

It might seem like an odd design technique to look to paper to create a lightweight yet durable piece of luggage, but the Offwhite Papier Travel Bag by Saskia Diez does just that. The chic bag is created using Tyvek, which is a synthetic form of paper that is extremely durable and waterproof to make the piece ready for heavy wear.

The Offwhite Papier Travel Bag by Saskia Diez is meant to become worn and wrinkled; the hard and soft lines that will form on the bag give it a personality all its own. It’s difficult to attain this kind of effect with any other material because leather takes years to break in and synthetic fibers will usually tear before becoming soft and supple.

The Offwhite Papier Travel Bag by Saskia Diez is completely recyclable and can be discarded without guilt after a long life.
