Spring has Sprung! March 11 2016

Introducing the 2016 Uashmama Collection — new colours, new texture, new products, same trusted brand!

The elegant transformation of everyday living goods from a simple sheet of paper made up of a weave of natural fibres is Uashmama’s promise. Bringing to life a luxurious line of washable paper, that mimics the look, texture and durability of leather, Uashmama delivers perfection once again with their newly expanded product line. Uashmama consistently creates quality products for every day fashion, lifestyle and interior design, through their eco-conscious and functional line.  


Drawing inspiration from nature’s textures and neutral tones, Uashmama launches new colours including Rose Quartz, Cashmere and new print Nuvola, the Italian word for ‘cloud’.

These new shades will offer a fresh and calming accent to your home and will blend in perfectly with your existing Uashmama collection.



If Uashmama’s leathery paper wasn’t convincing enough, the new texture Lux will fool even the wisest of leather smiths. The new Lux texture is a stronger fiber and offers a durability, quality and uncanny resemblance to leather.
The Lux paper collection comes in Dark Grey, Black, Camel, Burnt Orange, and White.



Staying true to the simplicity in their design, Uashmama has created new pieces that can perfectly be integrated in your home or style. Whether function or fashion, Uashmama carries something beautiful for every sole.

Introducing only a few gems and some of our personal favourites from the 2016 handbag collection: the Maru clutch, the Otti bag (in Rose Quartz) a new smaller take on the classic Alle bag, and the Shine tote (in Camel).

Bring UASHMAMA® Home for the Holidays November 05 2014

Wow! It's been 6 months since we launched and sometimes it feels like we haven't take a breath! We've been busy packing orders for the holidays; collaborating on projects with so many great businesses and bloggers; and working our Ottawa Pop-Up Shop, where we will be throughout the entire holiday season until December 31 2014. If you live in or are visiting our lovely city and want to see our products in person before buying them, now is your chance!


We have been waiting to introduce our new products for the holidays with a shimmering take on the classic paper bags: amazing metallic colours and patterned finishes! You will be busy table setting, gifting, entertaining, cooking, wrapping, and decorating in your home and we have the perfect things, just for you. Our paper bags will work perfectly with whatever holiday plans you have, yet transition nicely into your home to become completely functional once the holidays are over. These washable paper bags are so sweet and versatile, especially at this time of the year. Whether you need reusable gift bags for your presents or you are looking for a unique gifting idea, we surely have something suited to your lifestyle and budget. We invite you to visit our 'holiday shop' for decorating and gifting ideas this holiday season.

Finally, we have some exciting news to share. The coveted LCBO Food & Drink Holiday Issue is out and we are so thrilled to announce that this delicious publication has featured our paper bags as part of their 'must-have's' - things they love for entertaining and around the house. Don't forget to pick up your free copy at any Ontario LCBO store!

Leave the gifting to us this year and spend more time with your family and loved ones.

Happy Holidays,
Rachella + Melissa

Pop the bubbly! April 30 2014

We’re celebrating for more than one reason today! It’s Rachella’s 30th birthday and we are so so so excited to finally launch our company and introduce the UASHMAMA® (pronounced wash-mama) brand in North America!  


So what is UASHMAMA®?  

After discovering UASHMAMA® washable paper bags, we immediately fell in love with the full range of paper products made by Le Sorelle in Tuscany, Italy and began working with the four sisters behind the brand to introduce and develop it in Canada.  

We are soul mates in good taste. We both have a deep appreciation for simple and pretty things being a part of our everyday living. Our homes look alike. Anything we buy for one another, we generally buy for ourselves too. And we really don't think there is anything wrong with that! Who said gifting ever had to be for somebody else? We believe in treating yourself too.   

We are absolutely in love with each and every product in our shop and we hope that you and whoever you gift to will fall in love too. Which UASHMAMA® will you carry?


Rachella & Melissa
