WHAT IS PAPER-LEATHER?
In English, the material is called “kraft paper”, and in Chinese it is called “bull-skin paper”.
该材料在英语中被称为“kraft paper”，在中文中被称为“牛皮纸” 。
WILL KRAFT PAPER TEAR EASILY?
No it won’t. It’s incredibly strong because of the chemical process used in its manufacture.
WILL KRAFT PAPER FALL APART IF IT GETS WET?
Even when wet, kraft paper remains tear-resistant.
HOW PROTECTED WILL A BAG’S CONTENTS BE IF IT GETS WET?
Most bags are double-layered, with an additional fabric interior. Some also utilize an added organic water-resistant treatment. The LunchKraft® lunchbox is internally waterproofed through its recycled PET MET insulation.
CAN SCHOOLED BY PAPER PRODUCTS BE WASHED?
Yes they can be. Although we’ve run different products through a washing machine, we would recommend hand washing and drip drying to protect hardware such as zippers and snaps. These potentially could be damaged by bouncing against the sides of a machine during its cycle.
WILL INKS OR PAINTS WASH OUT OR BLEED?
Our acrylic paint markers and permanent markers will not wash out or bleed unless very specific solvents are used on them.
However, other water-based and non-permanent inks and paints such as regular ball-point pens and watercolors will both wash out as well as bleed unless sealed or fixed as you would with a pencil or ink drawing on conventional art paper.
Check the specifications of your chosen artistic media to determine if it is suitable to use.
CAN DRAWINGS ON A BAG BE ERASED?
Permanent inks and paints will be difficult to erase. If you are unsure of your first drawing, we recommend you draw your design a few times on regular paper to build your confidence, and then sketch lightly in pencil (which can be erased) before using permanent artistic media of your choice.
WHAT OTHER ARTISTIC MEDIA CAN BE USED ON THE PRODUCTS?
Probably more than we could easily list here. You can look at our WeChat account to see how some very creative people around the world have experimented with different media on Schooled by Paper products.
可能会超出我们可以轻松列出的范围，您可以查看我们的微信帐户，以了解世界各地一些很有创造力的人如何在Schooled by Paper产品上尝试不同的设计。
CAN I PURCHASE A CUSTOM BAG ON DISPLAY IN THE STORE?
Yes. Special edition customized bags are labelled with their prices in the store.
HOW CAN I HAVE A CUSTOM BAG PAINTED FOR ME?
If you are interested in a custom design, please add schooledbypaper on WeChat and mention the shop where you saw the bags. We can discuss with you custom designs and prices on WeChat.
IS THE PAPER SOURCED ETHICALLY?
Yes. All paper used in Schooled by Paper products originates from sustainable forests certified by a globally recognized body. You can learn more about how forests and supply chains are ethically managed by going to www.fsc.org.
Also, the process by which kraft paper is made recycles or reuses almost all of the chemicals used in manufacture, which results in less impact on our environment.
是。 “Schooled by Paper”产品中使用的所有纸张均来自全球公认机构认证的可持续森林。您可以访问www.fsc.org了解更多有关如何合理管理森林和供应链的信息。
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN SCHOOLED BY PAPER BAGS CARRY?
Although we don’t have a specific number for you… more than you would want to carry. One of the uses for kraft paper is making bags for concrete mix.
ARE THE PRODUCTS RECYCLABLE OR RECYCLED?
Yes, the kraft-paper leather exterior is recyclable on all products. Much of the plastic hardware used is made from recycled plastic, and other materials like cotton straps, cotton interiors, and EVA mid-layer are biodegradable. The insulation of the LunchKraft lunchbox is metallized PET foil (PET MET) made from recycled water bottles.
