With PAPNU we are presenting a new Chalk Bag that perfectly matches function and design. PAPNU is made out of a special, tear-resistant paper, made in Austria and weighs in at a super-light 56g (without waist belt). This stylish and robust Chalk Bag is waterproof, 100% vegan and can be washed at 40 °C in a washing machine. All of the raw material for this quality product comes from the EU.
Paper that’s tear resistant, waterproof and can be washed at 40° Celsius? Just in case you still can’t believe it, just try it out! And also the "inner life" is well-thought-out! Choosing neoprene as lining was a conscious decision, as it offers such a fine mesh that no chalk can go in the space between the interior and exterior bag. In addition, neoprene is resistant to bacteria, germs and fungus, its production is environmentally friendly and has good adhesive properties - meaning the chalk is distributed well within the chalk bag, and can coat your fingers cleanly.
Through a lucky coincidence we came together: AUSTRIALPIN and ‘mapbagrag’, two companies that share similar values and the goal of sustainable production. Mapbagrag, based in the Styrian city of Graz, specializes in the development and production of products made with a special type of paper, and have become experts in handling and working with this paper. Working together with their creative team, we quickly realised the potential between us and we have many ideas still brewing. With the PAPNU Chalkbag we brought our first collaboration to life, a chalkbag that is both light and durable, and available in four different designs. Stylefactor is 100% and it carries the label ‘Made in Austria’ for good reason.
Produced in Austria with raw materials from the EU, it embodies our values and standards. The helping hands, who prepare the packaging and the interior/exterior are from the non-profit ‘Jugend am Werk’. Without their contribution the magbags and PAPNUs wouldn’t be what they are today!
