Out of the Woods was founded by Pierre Barlier (founder & CEO of KeepCool Bags) about 15 years ago. The discovery of Supernatural Paper and the creation of the brand Out Of The Woods were a natural extension of the founder’s growing passion for bags and for the environment.

What is Supernatural Paper ?

The main material of the bags is made of real slow-growing tree pulp, bonded with latex (allergen -free) which makes the bags washable.

Out Of The Wood bags are not just natural but are light, strong and stylish. In terms of the appearance of the bag, you will be surprised by the feeling of a worn leather, a leather that improves and becomes softer with time.


But is it really natural?

Yes, because the need for single-use bags is eliminated and the material itself is sustainable because it comes from well-managed forests where trees are responsibly cut down and replanted. It’s true that papermaking is very water-intensive, but the process returns 93% of the water taken for production to its original source, clean and healthy. The other 7% evaporates. This paper therefore has a better environmental profile than many other materials such as plastic, cotton or animal hide.


« A good bag embraces more than you ask it to hold. It embraces you. », Pierre Barlier.


Out Of the Wood products are sustainable, vegan, washable and reusable.
