Not only are Papelle bags green, they are also the result of the hard work of the Natipuan community in Nasugbo, Batangas. Over a year ago, a lot of them were jobless and basically not doing anything. Today, they are putting their talents to work with these wonderful bags. They skillfully hand-weave paper into numerous beautiful patterns that are strong and durable, making the modern day “bayong”. The created woven sheets of paper are then formed into stylish designs that are just waiting to share their story!

Papelle bags are beautiful examples of what recycling can do. The main attraction is it's unique material: Paper! This bag line advocates recycling and sustainability. It uses recycled paper to help lessen garbage and battle pollution by making use of what many consider as trash. Old newspapers and old yellow pages are brought back to life as they are skillfully woven together and made into Papelle: A bag that sure has a story to tell!
