I love cartoons and I love all types of bags. So, you can imagine how excited I was to hear about a new line that has combined both! JumpFromPaper is a fun & quirky bag line by Taiwan-based designers Rika Lin and Chay Su. The global brand just turned 3 years old and shows no signs of stopping.
The initial concept for the bag designs came after Rika and Chay had an inspiring afternoon of window shopping. The pair both saw a niche that could fill and agreed that they should create bags that reflect their own unique style. They began to sketch some ideas and then started rendering the designs in 2D, which then opened their eyes to an innovative construction concept. The concept… designing the real bags to “jump from paper”, just like the illustrations. Originally the designs were inspired by very popular Asian cartoons, comic books, animations and comedy manga, such as Super Radical Gag Family. The designs are also influenced by the diverse cultural in Taiwan.
The bags are sold in various retail locations in over 30 countries worldwide and online in Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, U.S.A., UK and Australia. The current collection has 12 different styles available, priced from $79 -$109. There are bags that would hold everything you would need for your daily travels as well as bags to use as a carry-on for a fun vacay!
