We know what you’re thinking—those purses in the photos above look a lot like someone photoshopped a cartoon onto a model. But believe us, they’re real. JumpFromPaper is the fantasy-turned-reality of Taipei-based designers Chay Su and Rika Lin. Their creations literally look like cartoons that have jumped from paper and into your arms.

The idea for the brand came about when Su and Lin were discussing what their dream handbag would look like. After sketching out a few, they thought about how cool it would be if they could find a way to make bags that look like the actual sketches. Lucky for us, they did. In addition to purses, JumpFromPaper's whimsical line also includes backpacks, wallets, and messenger bags, many of which are unisex. And although they look slim and two dimensional, they're roomy enough to hold everything you need, including a tablet. Shop the line (everything is under $200) at
