Not just a paper bag... It's the perfect organic storage solution.

Paper bags that look and feel like leather but machine and dish wash with ease. Each and every paper bag is sewn by hand in a cottage in Tuscany, so Uashmana are proud to call themselves a cottage industry. Every purchase directly supports an artisan community of Italian seamstresses. Uashmama paper is made using a sustainably cultivated fibre and does not contribute to deforestation. Sustainability extends to sustainable use, finding new ways to use and reuse the simple paper bag.

Beginning at 'Piccolo' our baby bag originally designed for salt and pepper, popular as a ramekin or small desk size. 'XS' also a good size for desk accessories will fit miniature succulents or cacti in a 5cm pot. The 'Small', 'Medium' and 'Large' sizes have been designed for the table. 'Small' for herbs which can house a 10cm pot, 'Medium' for bread or a 15cm pot and 'Large' for a larger bread bag, fruit bowl or 17cm pot. The 'Large Plus' size comfortably fits a 20cm plant pot, from here we move up to 'XLarge' which is an ideal size used as a paper bin or a 25cm pot, 'XXLarge' is a popular size for laundry or 30cm pot and the 'Giant' coming in at 45cm in base diameter is designed specifically as a super sized bag for a Christmas tree or large indoor plant with a pot size of 40-42cm.

When the oversize bags arrive they will be packed flat, at first look they may seem too big, please don’t be put off by their initial flat form. As soon as you start rolling the top down the bag will start to take form and the sheer size will disappear. Don’t be afraid to grab handfuls of the paper and roll big fat long rolls, scrunch and roll, scrunch and roll and then some more. The base shape can be manipulated and squashed in once the bag is at the desired height. 

Please always remember to use a plant saucer or plastic tray in the base of these bags, see 'Care' for further instructions.
