Creating Pappeal has been a journey, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the line we’ve designed. We are so excited to give people something fresh and stylish, and we can’t wait to see Pappeal enter the market.

While new and innovative technology-related products seem to make their debut all the time, it seems that there isn’t much new excitement in the way of bags and luggage. Pappeal, launching on Kickstarter today, February 24, brings a new zest to the market for bags with a unique line made of Tyvek®. Offering a sleek minimalist design, the line includes a backpack, a messenger bag, and a duffel bag, all of which are featherlight and easy to clean.

The bags are a product of the company’s pursuit to create something beautiful, yet simple and ultimately functional. After a lengthy design process, a line of fresh white bags created from Tyvek® made the final cut for the perfect interaction between function and design.

“Our company came together as three people looking to make a splash and intrigue the world with something exclusive,” said Madeleine Furuvald, one of the company’s founders. “Creating Pappeal has been a journey, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the line we’ve designed. We are so excited to give people something fresh and stylish, and we can’t wait to see Pappeal enter the market.”

Although Tyvek® has been used for a multitude of products and functions, Pappeal was always meant to be a stylish and innovative use of a great material. The name of the product line is derived from that intention. “Papel,” the spanish word for paper, was merged with appeal, embodying the mission behind the company – to make something intriguing out of a product composed of something as simple as a variation of paper.

Tyvek® exemplifies several properties that make it efficient for durability. It is water resistant, easy to clean, and incredibly hard to break or tear – nearly impossible to rend with one’s hands.

Pappeal offers three specific products for backers to choose from. The backpack is a medium sized pack with an outside zipper compartment. The messenger offers an inner open space with a division, inside pockets for pens and cell phone, a flap closure with velcro, and an outside zipper pocket. The duffel offers padded straps and an inside zip pocket that allows it to be folded up into itself, creating a small parcel that can be easily thrown in a suitcase.

With a funding goal of $30,000, Pappeal is bringing the bags to Kickstarter to help finance their initial round of production during a 30-day campaign. The bags will each sell for an early bird special price of $25 while supplies last. Following the early bird pricing, the bags will only be $30.
