Camping with Bags of Style

9_big1_bigLaminate-Paper-bag_1These Uashmama paper bags (pronounced Wash Mama) are designed and made in Tuscany by Le Sorelle, a business owned and run by four Italian sisters. They created these incredible paper bags that feel like leather, wash like fabric and flatten for easy storage. They’re brilliant to take camping as, not only can you use them for loads of things, they look fantastic! You could store extra blankets or coats, fruit and veg or even as little planters to brighten up a table. They now come in small, medium, large and extra large. The larger bags have straps, so could even be used to pack your clothes or shoes. You could even use one as a snazzy laundry bag. Uashmama bags are designed to be rolled so you can alter the height to suit the contents. I love the gold and silver ones. To clean them, all you do is unroll them and hand wash in warm water using a mild soap or detergent. Easy. The paper is made using a virgin fibre from cultivation (so not through deforestation). The manufacturing process is similar to leather where the paper is stretched and tanned making it durable to withstand washing and daily use. How brilliant is that? They also sell a ceramic bread warmer which you can put on a grill over your campfire, pop in the bottom of one of the bags and presto! Warm croissants or bread for breakfast. That’s some nice campfire style.
