Paper bags are something people use frequently, from grocery store shopping to carrying home Chinese take out, but have you ever stopped to think about the history of the paper sack?

For centuries, jute, canvas, and burlap sacks were the primary method of holding and moving goods thanks to their sturdy and durable nature. However, producing these sacks was not only time consuming, but expensive. Paper on the other hand could be produced at a much lower cost, and thus, quickly became the material of choice for portable sacks.

Since their introduction in the 1800s, paper bags have undergone numerous upgrades thanks to a few clever innovators. First, there is Francis Wolle to thank, who in 1852 invented a machine which could mass-produce paper sacks. Though Wolle's bags looked more like large mailing envelopes than the grocery store mainstay we know today, his machine was the catalyst for the mainstream use of paper packaging.

Another important figure in the evolution of the paper sack is Margaret Knight. Knight was a prolific inventor who worked for the Columbia Paper Bag Company, where she realized that square-bottomed bags, rather than Wolle's envelope design, would be more practical and easier to carry goods. Knight then created a new paper bag making machine in an industrial shop, which helped to pave the way for the widespread commercial use of paper sacks.

Next up, there's Charles Stillwell who thought of adding pleated sides to paper sacks. A mechanical engineer by trade, Stillwell sought to add an element to Knight's design that would make paper bags foldable, and thus, easier to store.

And last but not least, there's Lydia and Walter Deubener, who in 1918 came up with the idea to punch holes into the sides of bags and attach a string that could act as a handle, giving paper sacks the final touch to the look we all know and love today.
