​How are Couture Planet bags constructed?​

Our unique bags are made from 100% post-consumer newspaper and magazines that is treated with a cool press laminate which makes the bag waterproof.  The process is all done by hand.  We maintain a sewing shop in Lynn, Massachusetts – just north of Boston.

How do I care for my Couture Planet bag?

Our bags can be wiped clean with a damp cloth as necessary.  To extend the life of your bag, avoid direct sunlight and heat when storing.

How should I expect my bag to wear?

Customers are surprised by the durability of our bags.  Part of the character of the bag is the gently worn “finish” that appears on newspaper after prolonged use.  That being said, if you have a particular issue with your bag, please email us at and we are happy to discuss.
