UASHMAMA are original bags made from washable and fully recyclable paper. It is a small family run company based in Montecatini just outside the walls of Lucca. The village now thrives again with the growth of UASHMAMA, who employs a large group of local men and women to sew from home the paper bag you buy today. Uashmama products from 100% cellulose look and feel like leather but are even more resilient and soft, very durable to withstand washing and daily use. Uashmama combines functionality, tradition and innovation.
