Italian brand Uashmama introduces a range of paper products that are washable and feel like leather

There are often so many considerations to take into account when getting a bag. Leather bags stand out for their looks and durability, but tend to be heavy and are not the most eco-friendly option. Paper bags are light, but they tend to be flimsy and are not washable. Here's where Italian brand Uashmama's products come in.

The Tuscany-based brand, by Le Sorelle, a family company run by four sisters, makes products that feel like leather, wash like fabric, but are actually made of paper.

Linking tradition, craftsmanship and innovation, Uashmama paper products are handmade using virgin fibres from cultivation, instead of deforestation. The manufacturing process is similar to that used to produce leather, with each individual sheet of paper stretched and tanned to produce a durable and washable paper.

Originally designed as bread bags, the brand now produces a range of products, such as lunch bags, handbags, backpacks, beauty cases and wallets to name a few.
