The Timeless + Sustainable No Season Bag Collection From Maria/Maleta
Portuguese brand Maria/Maleta designs high-quality leather goods, bags and accessories; the new line, the No Season collection, doesn’t disappoint. It’s a fusion between new fabrics, recycled and recyclable materials, and one of the most classic raw materials out there – leather. All of the leather is a by-product of the food industry, and is environmentally-friendly, biodegradable and allergy-free.
The motto ‘sustainability is synonymous of durability’ guides the No Season collection. The bags reflect this value with timeless designs and expert craftsmanship. Think the perfect balance between minimalist lines with the right materials and manufacturing transparency.
Handmade in Portugal, the No Season collection’s Paper Bag Kraft works as a shoulder or crossbody bag – whichever fits your style that day. You can also flip the bag and have the same bag in a different color! It’s made from recyclable and waterproof Kraft PU (vegan fabric) with a paper texture and bio leather in dark brown.

The Paper Bag Recycled, also a shoulder or crossbody bag, is handcrafted from gray recycled fabric and vegetable tanned bio leather in black. 70% of the bag comes from post-consumer recycled PES (plastic and polyester fabrics), and eco-consciousness goes into all of it.
The shoulder-meets-crossbody Paper Bag Bio uses vegetable tanned leather in beige and bio leather in gray suede for an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable and allergy-free carryall. Like the rest of the bags in the No Season collection, this one showcases Maria/Maleta’s commitment to quality and modern, minimalist designs.
