Paper lunch bags and paper grocery bags - we all know them! We all carry stuff in them every day, whether it be groceries, clothes, gifts, or a packed lunched, but do you know the history of this well-known item?
For most of recorded history containers were constructed of leather, wood, and cotton, as paper, which used to be made by hand, one sheet at a time, was considered a luxury, and was only used for books, records, and letters by a fortunate literate few. It wasn't until 1799 when a French inventor named Louis-Nicolas Robert was granted a patent for a machine that produced rolls of paper. It is thanks to this machine that paper became available to the masses.
Soon, merchants started using rolled paper to package goods, but this didn't always yield smooth results. Eventually, merchants started an attempt to make paper bags by hand, which didn't always prove successful. Thus, the race for the first paper bag making machine was on.
It was in 1852 that the American inventor Francis Wolle received the first patent for a paper-bag machine which used steam and paste to create bags in the shape of envelopes. Though this machine became popular, the bags it produced weren't very versatile, yet it wasn't until the late 1860s when Margaret Knight, an employee of the Paper Bag Company in Springfield, Massachusetts, brought an idea to the table that would revolutionize the industry, and give us the paper bag design we all know and love today.
