Making a recent appearance at the Model Citizens show during New York Design Week, Paper No. 9 is more (or less actually) than meets the eye.
From a glance you’ll see another soft and supple shearling leather purse that is oh-so-gorgeous but oh-so-guilty, but look again and discover that the material is actually: paper.
With heat treatments, natural oils, and a whole lot of elbow grease, paper can be molded into a soft and velvety material that could fool you for being leather unless its straps were right on top of your shoulders – and that’s exactly where we want them!
They have our vote on this illusion-like ode to sustainability and fashion!
