Uashmama® bags are made out of washable paper using a virgin fiber through cultivation, not deforestation. The paper washes like fabric, but holds it’s form over continuous use. The bags are soft yet resilient. They look, feel and wear like real leather. The manufacturing process is similar to leather. The paper is stretched and tanned, making it durable to withstand washing and daily use. The bags are completely designed and manufactured by a small family business in Tuscany, Italy. The products evoke sensations of warmth similar to leather and are completely natural, making them truly unique, beautiful and versatile.
