A foreign concept to many, our washable paper is indeed washable!

Do not believe that? We will show you how to clean our UASHMAMA® products. 

Our signature washable “AGGO” paper is water resistant and our products are designed to be soaked and washed for cleaning. Our paper material has the benefit of being extremely durable, yet pliable enough for endless creativity


We created this material in response to our needs. At its inception many years ago, our washable paper was used to make a simple bread bag for the dinner table. This was Marco’s first creation using the paper material and once it came to life he began to have more ideas of how to utilize the paper. Through trial, error and perseverance, he started learning how to create a stronger paper that could have many functional uses while using a natural and sustainable production cycle.

Our AGGO paper must be strong, durable, and long lasting. Our paper is an alternative material that has been treated in an innovative way, utilizing water saving production methods and biodegradable wax. Conventional textiles and manufacturing practices utilize chemicals throughout the production process. That does not align with our ethos and mission which is why we created AGGO washable paper to be used as our core textile.


Products without leather are hand washable. Wash them with warm water using a mild soap or detergent and simply reshape before drying. Products with leather can be hand washed the same way, just be sure to avoid the leather handles/accents.

Our sealed or coated paper (Luxe or TEC paper) is very low maintenance, and a simple wipe now and again is all it needs. Just have a little scuff mark or small stain? Spot cleaning is extremely effective. However, before applying water or cleaning solutions use a simple clean pencil eraser for light scuff marks and dirt. To remove harder stains, soaking, spot cleaning or dry cleaning can be used. 

While we have had loyal UASHMAMA® customers tell us they have washed their bags in a washing machine with great success, we do not recommend this. Spot treating and hand washing is generally adequate. 

The thought of putting your beautiful handbag under the faucet to soak, we realize can be terrifying, but we assure you our bags are designed to withstand water and cleaning, trust UASHMAMA®!
