Pappeal Tyvek® Bags Enter Final Week of Kickstarter Campaign with Anticipation

Durable line makes lugging items around easy with lightweight, water resistant bags

MIAMI, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Pappeal, the latest Tyvek® project on Kickstarter, has eight days left for backers to support the campaign that will help the company fund the production and delivery of its first round of bags. Composed of durable Tyvek®, the line can be carried for a multitude of purposes, including outdoor trips, sports and plenty of other things.

"We wanted our bags to be durable and practical," said Madeleine Furuvald, one of the creators of Pappeal. "Using Tyvek® gave us the ability to make stylish bags that are functional for everyone. Whether you are into being outdoors or you're a busy mom or even a student, this line is going to be functional for your lifestyle."

For people who need a spacious, durable bag that can withstand the elements, the Pappeal line is a new and notable option. Because the bags are composed of Tyvek®, they are water resistant and extremely difficult to damage. This makes them ideal for outdoor enthusiasts who need sturdy totes for camping, hiking and other types of trips. Pappeal comes at a low cost and makes packing easy and carefree.

Another huge differentiator in the Pappeal line is the featherlight weight the bags showcase. Vacationers always seem to need an extra bag for trips, but finding suitcase space is never an easy task, especially when flying. Not only is the Pappeal duffel bag incredibly lightweight, but it also folds up into an inside pocket, making it an easy fit for a vacation bag.

Two other bags, the messenger and the backpack, complete the initial Pappeal line. While the duffel bag is made of fabric-like Tyvek®, the other two bags are uniquely made with paper-like Tyvek®. The messenger bag is a versatile bag that is both student and career friendly. It can comfortably hold a laptop or notebooks and folders, and it also has a small compartment for writing utensils. The backpack is ideal for campus life or for anyone who needs to throw a few items in for easy carrying.

The creators at Pappeal are eager to hit their funding goal of $30,000 to help finance their initial round of production. There are still several bags left at the early bird price of $25, but they are quickly disappearing. When the early bird specials run out, each bag will cots $30.
