_as the two co-founders of [paper.] we would like to introduce ourselves. we are Kathi and Sebastian, two siblings with one vision. we have been working for over two years on this label and together with our customers as well as professionals from the industry we designed the probably most sustainable and minimalist bags out there. our aim is to offer an alternative to the fashion industry and show that fashion can be done differently. by supporting us and purchasing one of our products, we plant a tree in areas that need reforestation. so basically you have a lasting positive impact while looking amazing.
_the future is fair.
//_who we are.
_a berlin-based responsible fashion label, and we craft rucksacks with a minimalist design and with everything we do, we are as sustainable as possible.
_for us it all started when we were looking for sustainable backpacks in the market and we got frustrated with the current state of the fashion industry. sustainable fashion looks... let’s say not engaging. we could only find either uninspiring designs or backpacks which were way too expensive.
_so we love backpacks. therefore we decided to make the best sustainable backpacks out there. that’s why we started [paper.] to create a new way of combining design with sustainability. and to make our contribution to change the way fashion is being done.
_right now fashion is in 2nd place for the most polluting industry in the world. only the oil industry is performing shittier.
_ultimately, our mission is to make responsible fashion appealing and affordable. and to create a community of inspiring people that also want to make the world a little bit better [...looking.]
_communication design and minimalism is her thing. it’s not hard to guess why she became the creative head of our company.
from the website over pictures onto the design of our backpacks, everything was designed in her head
and was processed on her desk. besides being batshit crazy she is laughing all the time, what makes
working with her so annoying.
_sebastian is the kind of guy who makes you excited to go to work in the morning his passion for what we are doing
and his belief in what we stand for makes the whole team work harder and more determined to reach our
goals. he studied international business with also a focus on entrepreneurship in amsterdam. with his
social and outgoing personality he became CEO of [paper.] he is a solution oriented thinker and can be
really convincing. speaking his mind is his favorite thing to do. every single discussion with him is so
inspiring. what an exhausting character.
