♥ UASHMAMA ♥
The combination of tradition, craftmanship and technology has ensured that the magic formula of UASHMAMA® (say Wash-mama) paper is developed.
The productline of UASHMAMA® is endless and continues to inspire. From fabulous handbags to the functional accessories. The products are made with love and are all handcrafted in Tuscany, Italy.
After the very popular Paper Bags the line is now expanded to include handbags, shoppers, aprons and many more. Available in many colors and finishes.
Le Sorelle ‘The Sisters’ is a small family run company based in Montecatini just outside the walls of Lucca. Once a popular tourist destination Montecatini has struggled in the last decade being bypassed for more promoted areas. The village now thrives again with the growth of UASHMAMA®, who employ a large group of local men and women to sew the paper bags you buy today from their own homes.
Our paper bags, braces, and aprons are all sewn in a cottage in Tuscany, so we are proud to call ourselves a cottage industry. The more sophisticated designs of our totes and handbags are produced in Florence by manufacturers who also produce for the fashion elite.
UASHMAMA® washable paper looks and feels like leather but washes with ease. Our bags are soft yet resilient, where the manufacturing process is similar to leather the paper is stretched and tanned making it durable to withstand washing and daily use.
UASHMAMA® washable paper is made using a virgin fibre through cultivation and not deforestation. Paper that washes like fabric holding it’s form so it can be used over and over again promoting sustainability perfect for catering and homewares.
The project UASHMAMA® combines beauty, functionality, tradition and design. Paper, leather and fabric are all part of this project.
We are working tirelessly to introduce new designs to the collection all the time.
