                              9. What material are PAPERO® bags & backpacks made of?

                                The material for our bags is made of pulp made from scraped softwood. The long fibres provide the strength and wet strength of the paper. The pulp is mixed with natural latex, giving our bags robustness and washability.

                                Our bags consist of Not From Tyvek®, as it is a nonwoven made of polyethylene (plastic). This cannot be recycled in the same way as paper and does not correspond to our sustainability idea.

                                        10. A paper backpack – doesn't it tear and endure something?

                                    Ultra-light yet very robust and extremely tear-resistant. These are the advantages of our PAPERO® bags and backpacks. You can pack something into your backpack and carry it comfortably. In case of rain, the backpack contents remain dry. Raindrops leave no stains and the material dries again quickly.

                                    When filling the backpack, you should make sure that the shoulder straps are evenly loaded and that the bag is not only carried with a shoulder strap, because paper also has its limits when it has been perforated by seams.

                                    Unused and new backpacks are initially a bit stiff and become softer and smoother due to their use after a short time.

                                            11. Are your bags & backpacks tested for harmful substances?

                                        All our bags and backpacks are chemical-free and uncoated. Metal components are nickel- and lead-free. We attach great importance to ensuring that our products are always biodegradable or recyclable, health- and environmentally friendly.

                                                12. How do I maintain my PAPERO® kraft paper?

                                            The kraft paper can be cleaned with water with a damp (microfiber) cloth. The material is stainedsensitive and easy to care for. Impregnation is not required.

                                                    13. Where does the material of your PAPERO® bags & backpacks come from?

                                                The kraft paper for our washable bags and backpacks is produced in Germany by a long-established company certified in accordance with ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental management systems, which is focused on the production of recyclable and renewable materials.

                                                  Backpacks made?

                                                    It is important to us that our bags and backpacks are manufactured under good and ethical working conditions.

                                                            Yes, this works very well with waterproof permanent markers or acrylic paints.
