These Purses Are Made From Washable Paper That Mimics Leather

By Desirée Kaplan

Have you ever washed paper? The notion sounds counterintuitive, but an Italian brand called Uashmama has found a way to create washable paper bags for eco-conscious customers. The lightweight bags, which look and feel like leather, are actually made of a special natural fiber.  

The timing for this innovative line couldn’t be better. Today, thousands of bags end up in landfills around the world. Many of these are single-use bags which have become widespread in consumer focused cultures. Uashmama bags help divert waste from landfills by creating a range of unique bags made to last.
