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 from home the paper bag you buy today.

Their paper bags, braces, and aprons are all sewn in a cottage in Tuscany, so they are proud to call themselves a cottage industry. The more sophisticated designs 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. Their 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. The 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.
