LIVALIKE bags are contemporary paper bags created with the greatest respect for the environment, animal welfare and mankind. The beauty of these bags is found in their timeless shapes, the innovative material, the clever details and the high quality workmanship. Claudia Santiago Areal plays with the transience of the material and the desire for authenticity.

The kraft paper fabric is a washable and extremly durable material – unused it looks like paper, crinkled it looks like leather, but actually it's just paper. It´s free of harmful substances and as well FSC as OEKO-TEX certified.
