The WAKEbag rucksack is a firm favourite with sustainable fashionistas and zero waste warriors. It's been featured in numerous magazines and publications including The Independent, Glamour, The Pool, Vegan Living and NotOnTheHighStreet.
This is an 100% vegan backpack, made from poly paper fibres which are spun and then bonded together to create the look of paper, but with the durability and thickness of leather which gets better even with age. It’s practical, waterproof, washable and is the perfect size for a tablet or small laptop, water bottle, coffee cup and lunch.
Two compartments with zip pocket and inner pocket for valuables.
Buckle and popper fastenings
Dimensions: 420 x 270 x 130mm.
Fully adjustable straps. Will fit aged 7 upwards
Material: Poly paper fibres with cotton straps and metal fastenings.
Use a damp cloth to clean inside and outside. Take care not to overload.

Fabulous - extremely spacious with convenient pockets - I have received so many positive comments and people love that the fact that the bag resembles paper but actually is very robust in all weathers.
Very comfortable over one shoulder as it is over two, great access via the side zip and just love the fact it looks like brown paper!
This is a gift for my daughter - her birthday is in September but I love the bag so much I don’t think I can wait till then to give it to her!!
I’ve just moved to a new city and have been doing a lot of exploring with my dog. This bag is the perfect size for days like this! It’s big enough to carry everything I need but still looks cute. It’s got useful sections, one for a laptop and another hidden zipped section in the back. It’s comfortable to wear even when full and is durable for everyday use.
I love it because it’s got all the practical factors of a rucksack but doesn’t make you look like you’re going to school or for a hike.
Great looking bag, robustly made and perfectly sized - love it!
Purchases for my daughter for her birthday she was delighted
Good experience with no issues
Love IT SO much
This bag is exactly as advertised and I absolutely love it. Its my cheeky Covid treat to cheer me up. Highly recommend.
I bought this as a first anniversary present for my husband. He loved it, however unfortunately it didn’t fit his laptop which is the main reason I bought it for him. I think they need to make them a bit bigger in future. But the product is lovely and came in completely eco packaging.
This is my second wakebag, I LOVE it. Everyone asks about it as it looks so unusual. It’s great quality and well made.
Lovely bag and a great size. Highly recommended.
I've been waiting to review until I used the bag in the rain. The bag is well designed and has plenty of space. It feels sturdy and worked well in the rain with nothing get wet or damaged. Overall I recommend this bag.
It’s quirky, stylish, strong. I love it
Great bag, looks good and very functional. The paper look is very stylish but the bag appears pretty durable as well. Given as a present and my girlfriend was very happy!
I love my bag so much that I am going to order a tote. The more I use it the better it gets, it takes on a crumpledness that you would expect from a paper bag. It has been a great topic of discussion and I am seriously contemplating adding some graffiti, just like my jotters in the '80s.
Great wee bag! Takes my study stuff, Brolley, medication and the usual array of creams, hankies, pens, etc.
Even with all this it still feels LIGHT! I cannot fault it - haven't tried my laptop yet though. Anyway got a few people jealous - they want one.
Absolutely love it. It’s a bit different to other bags out there. Plenty of room for all my stuff. My iPad is nice and safe and there are pockets so I’m not rummaging round looking for things I n the bottom of the bag.
Delighted with rucksack. Just what I’d hoped for.
Love it !!!! It is so comfortable and full of style
I loved the look of the bag on the website and I knew I just had to buy it. It came through the post quickly. Having opened the package to unveil my bag, I was afraid to touch it, it looked so delicate. Now that I have taken it away on holiday, I love it! It can take the weight of my water and laptop. It's a conversation starter with like minded people about the environment. The only thing I would say is that I would've liked to have purchased the brown colour bag with the starter kit which is not available, only in the black. Also, I have a 13" screen laptop which I managed to squeeze into it. Pity, because all it needs is another inch length ways inside for it to be accommodated easily.
The backpack is really nice and cute! It's perfect for the everyday life and for school.
I’ve only been using the bag for a week now, but so far it’s been great. Lots of space, really light but sturdy and definitely waterproof. I’m very happy with it!
Nice item, great service and delivery too. Thank you.
I'm delighted with the bag! The delivery was efficient (particularly for Portugal) and well-communicated. The bag itself is very much what I expected size-wise and material-wise, congratulations on your product description. The extra small pocket was a nice bonus, as well as the side zipper pocket and the side zipper access. I was a bit concerned that I may not be as sturdy as I hoped, but on receiving it I see it is well-made, roomy and of strong quality. And smart! It's easy to find items despite the roominess! Thank you and wishing you lots of succes. Susan
Great bag, quick delivery and good quality! Sturdier than expected :)
I love the bag, its practicality, size and style. And without problems with the rain! My friends have attracted attention right away. How pretty!
I feel very good about carrying something created with a view to improving the world.
The backpack is exactly like in the pictures, and the paper-like texture is more realistic than I was expected. The closing band is a bit stiff but I hope it will give with use.
I hope this will be a long lasting item, it suits my style and needs perfectly.
I wasn't expecting that the side zipper was another access to the main pocket, but since inside there are two smaller sleeves (one of them padded for a laptop), it's possible to organize the inside without having the items fall when we open the side zipper.
Lightweight, easy to access the contents and it looks fab - what's not to love?!
Very sweet little bag. Fits nice and snug and the straps can be adjusted. A papery finish which makes you wonder how waterproof it is, but claims to be 100% waterproof which is good news. My water bottle and flask fits perfectly inside with room for more. Stylish bag and made from natural materials. Really happy with it.
Love this sack! Looks great, really sturdy and a lot roomier than I thought it would be. Buy one, you won't regret it.
Brilliant, much more substantial than I'd imagined, good smallish size ideal for work & very unusual
Haven't really used yet but looks and feels great - it really looks like a paper bag but is very tough. Can fit my (small) laptop, all of the cables, mouse etc and still have room for notepad, pencil case, wallet etc.
Beautiful bag, I have purchased for my daughter as she is starting nursery in September and wanted something different which could have her name printed on. Lots of people have commented on bag and where it was purchased from! Only down point is the straps are twisted slightly so don't sit neatly.
