It's as light as paper, but absolutely tear-resistant. It looks like paper, but is extremely wear-resistant - water and dirt can't harm it. Its surface changes in daily use, which makes the bag an entirely personal accessory. It's called PAPIER, but is made out of thousands of tiny plastic threads: the exciting new bag series by AUTHENTICS. But as delicate as the bags may look: they are extremely strong and wear-resistant. That's because PAPIER is made of Tyvek®, a special plastic film made from polyethylene by the renowned materials specialist Dupont.
