UASHMAMA® washable paper is made using a virgin fiber through cultivation, not deforestation. It is paper that washes like fabric, but holds its form so it can be used over and over again promoting sustainability which is perfect for entertaining, home wares, and unique storage solutions. The bags are soft, yet resilient. The manufacturing process is similar to leather as the paper is stretched and tanned making it durable to withstand washing and daily use. Le Sorelle, which means ‘the sisters’, is a small family owned company based in Tuscany, Italy that started the UASHMAMA® brand. Run by husband/ wife team, Marco and Emanuela and their four daughters, Chiara, Giulia, Gemma and Gaia.
The original paper bags were meant to be used as bread bags for the table and are still made by hand in a Tuscan village. These bags have quickly become a unique and creative option to house various types of plants.UASHMAMA® recently launched a new type of material for the bags that are still made of paper but are water resistant, making them an even better solution for plants.
The brand has continued to expand, creating a diverse line of products for the home and table as well as many accessory pieces such as totes, clutches, wallets and much, much more.
