MY PAPER BAG was designed by Ramón Middelkoop, who was inspired by the shabby and dirty paper bag of a homeless person. The shape of the paper bag was still of great beauty and therefor reason enough to design a long lasting piece which since 2011, has been made of 100% ecologically tanned buffalo leather.
