While working at a large architecture company leading retail, entertainment and hospitality design projects, Carolina Tombolesi was tasked with handcrafting a porcelain espresso set from washable hide coasters. It was during this challenge that she discovered a unique, leather-like fabric made from recycled paper that could be molded and shaped with water. “I was so amazed by the clean look and diverse uses for the reclaimed material, I needed to get my hands wet – literally,” she said. This one-of-a-kind material would then become the foundation for Urban Sacs, both in its function, form and commitment to sustainability. Each sac is made of washable paper made through a process of cultivation, not deforestation, and handmade by a local craftsman.
LARGE CREATIVE SAC (MORE COLORS)
Go big when you go home with the Urbana Sacs Large Creative Sac. Sometimes you need a little extra room for stray shoes, fresh farmer's market flowers or guest room towels - and the Large Creative Sac can do it all.
Harvested through cultivation not deforestation, the sustainable lightweight material used in Urbana Sacs is infused with a variety of virgin pulp fiber blends and recycled polyester felts. Individually handmade in Los Angeles with washable paper fabric, these sacs have been designed so that you can cuff and shape them to suit your needs. Like fabric, it can be washed and reused over and over again.
