Why Paper?

How do I wash My Paper Tote products?

All of our bags are washable. We advise handwashing your paper product and letting it dry naturally. With each wash your bag will get softer allowing you to shape your bag almost like clay. Try scrunching up your paper and letting it dry naturally to add texture to your bag. 

Will my bag tear or rip as it is made from paper? 

Our paper is tear resistant and strong enough to rival leather. It's flexibility and strength allows our bags to take the strains of daily life and serve you well.

Why should I choose a paper bag?

Our paper bags give you the durability of more  traditional bags with a unique material that is conscious of the environment. We are positive that you will fall in love with our bags and the material we use. It is lighter than leather but rivals it's strength. Being washable means it can always look it's best after those daily coffee spills! 

Where does the paper come from?

My Paper Tote sources our washable paper from the USA. Using paper from farms in Vermont, the process involves adding non harmful synthetic polymor coatings to give water resistant and tear resistant properties. 
My Paper Tote is mindful of production methods in order to create beautiful and exciting products. We do not use Pentachlorophenol, PVC or BPA, and our products are completely safe for the environment and man. The paper has been tested in line with Oeko Tex Standard 100 and is safe for contact with human skin.
