I found Uashmama whilst wandering through ‘The Rocks’ which is the oldest part of Sydney, near to the harbour. The streets are full of lovely shops, bars and restaurants. I really wanted to buy ALL the items in this store but I have zero space to pack anything into my suitcase, which is already bursting at the seams. Luckily for me they sell online.

Based in Australia but produced in Italy these items are all handmade.

”UASHMAMA washable paper looks and feels like leather but washes with ease. Our 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.” – Uashmama website.

I know what is going onto my Christmas list this year!
