About Schooled by Paper

In a time when we are both more connected and less connected than ever, Schooled by Paper uses the unique platform of its products to form a global community of creatives building a future together.

Its founder, John Knauss was a professional actor, artist, and educator. But in 2017 he decided to try something new. He wanted to encourage creativity in ways he hadn't seen before.

That same year, John had seen paper used for the first time in the fashion bag industry. But no one was doing what seemed obvious to him: Inviting people to mark on its surface! So he created the first DrawBag® and started an online community to encourage others to do and share exactly that.

Instead of an in-house design team, the brand works collaboratively with artists from various countries to help bring global color as well as expose these artists to a wider audience. The brand also looks to partner with local charities both at home and abroad, using products and art to bring people together.
