      MADE FROM: AGGO® Washable Paper

      ----

      WHY WASHABLE PAPER: 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. The AGGO paper material has the benefit of being extremely durable yet pliable enough for endless creativity. It holds true to the core of how we approach our products; it 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, so we created AGGO washable paper for our core textile.

      As UASHMAMA Family, we design and manufacture lifestyle products that balance our respect for nature and design functionality. Uashmama promotes intentional living through eco-sustainable products conceived, designed, and entirely made in Tuscany, Italy. As a family, we live our lives with a natural, moral, and ethical approach. This has always been and always will be how we operate our business.

      With every new design idea, we focus on three main principles as we explore and implement its inception: Innovation, Functionality, and Sustainability

      THE BEGINNING: Our process starts with buying raw materials from tree farms that are cut sustainably and controlled. We recondition the raw materials with our special UASHMAMA formula.

      At this stage, we add natural vegetable waxes and reduce the chemical substances inside the raw material. With our unique treatment process, we bring out the very best of the material, becoming our very own “AGGO” paper.

      We created our paper material, “AGGO”, because we wanted to create the perfect blend of ethical, durable, washable paper. We created this material in response to our needs.

      OUR VALUES AND IMPACT: As UASHMAMA Family, we design and manufacture lifestyle products that balance our respect for nature and design functionality. Uashmama promotes intentional living through eco-sustainable products conceived, designed, and entirely made in Tuscany, Italy. As a family, we live our lives with a natural, moral, and ethical approach. This has always been and always will be how we operate our business.

      With every new design idea, we focus on three main principles as we explore and implement its inception: Innovation, Functionality, and Sustainability

      THE BEGINNING: Our process starts with buying raw materials from controlled, sustainably harvested tree farms. We then recondition the raw materials with our special UASHMAMA formula.

      At this stage, we add natural vegetable waxes and reduce the chemical substances inside the raw material. With our unique treatment process, we bring out the very best of the material, becoming our very own “AGGO” paper.

      We created our paper material, “AGGO”, because we wanted to create the perfect blend of ethical, durable, washable paper. We created this material in response to our needs.


      INNOVATION: All of our products are made from our own washable paper material, exclusively made of natural fibers.

      MATERIAL: Once the material has been processed and becomes “AGGO, " we add final touches such as specialized vegetable-based dyeing, finishes, and double-papering to strengthen and style the paper. At this stage, craftsmen assist by cutting, sewing, and assembling the material to create the product in its final form.

      QUALITY: Quality is at the foundation of everything we do. We take pride in creating our own paper material and carefully monitor the process from start to finish. This allows us to ensure each product's strength, durability, and longevity.

      FUNCTIONALITY: We apply our Italian design principles to create impactful products that enhance our daily routine. We strongly consider the insertion of a new product into the collection. We want each product to be long-lasting, fit within our lifestyle, and serve a functional purpose.

      SUSTAINABILITY: From the design concept to the final product, every step of the manufacturing and production process is thoughtfully managed and considered. We strive to reduce our environmental impact throughout every stage.

      CERTIFICATIONS:

      • We certify our raw material processes, implement water-saving methods, and do not use chrome.
      • We use organic cotton, woven in Tuscany with certified organic fibers, for our bag lining.
      • Measures/Considerations:
      • We’re proud to be Italian. We keep our manufacturing and production local, employing only local craftsmen and artisans who excel at their respective trades in the surrounding Tuscan area.
      • We carefully consider reducing waste wherever possible. The materials we use to reinforce our bags, sacks, and backpacks are AGGO paper and organic cotton scraps, so there is no waste.
      • The straps we use, like the shoulder straps of backpacks, are made of recycled cotton - 85% of which is derived from used T-shirts.
      • The leather we use is top quality, tanned in the Tuscan area using old principles and methods of 'vegetable tanning' without chrome, using only tannins from the chestnut tree.
