We LOVE these bags from Onyx and Green. When we heard "newspaper bags" we imagined something like what you'd get in the supermarket, not this!

Onyx and Green tells us these bags are made from a variety of recycled newspaper (though they look more like magazines), ramie, and jute plant blends. The colorful body is made from a weave of paper strips that has been treated to make it sturdier, but this bag is not water resistant. (We picked at the strips enough to prove they didn't tear easily and a little water on the surface does bead up, but it will not hold up to larger amounts of water.) The rest is a blue-grey canvas-like fabric, nylon zippers, and shiny metal hardware.

This backpack is the perfect book bag or a colorful alternative to a messenger. It has padded adjustable straps, a carry loop on top, and a fake leather lash tab on the front. A zippered center pocket is great for the smaller items and elasticized sids pockets are big enough for a small water bottle.

The fully-lined interior measures about 12" wide by 16" tall. It has two pockets on the front, appropriate for your phone or wallet, and a zippered pocket on the back. A padded center divider with a Velcroed elastic strap makes this bag perfect for your tablet or small laptop (up to 9" wide and 10" tall, though it can accommodate taller if you don't use the elastic strap).

Made in China.

These are made to look very similar or identical. The item you are purchasing should look like the one shown in the picture(s).
