If I lived in Warsaw, Poland I would probably try to get a job at this studio, Thisispaper. The multidisciplinary design studio was founded by Alexander Zakharov and Zuzanna Gasior. Really liking these bags and rucksacks in their shop, particularly the labeling of these items. Here are a few things they have written about themselves on their website:

“At Thisispaper Shop we source and make items that are lasting, sustainable and well-designed, which we believe should be a norm, not luxury.”

“We value timeless over trendy, few over many and plain over fancy – that’s probably the most condensed way of putting into words what Thisispaper Shop is about.”

“All of them (products) are made with respect for the Earth’s scarce resources and little concern for passing trends.”

Product Tag Line:  “What we save, saves us”.
