PRODUCT CARE

 

I see small irregularities in my product. What does that mean?

  • Our products are handmade using resources local to each country and region. Each artisan does his or her very best to craft pieces with quality and care. In some instances small discrepancies or irregularities may be found on products. 

 

How should I keep my product clean?

  • For optimal wear keep your leather goods in a separate space so they do not rub up against your other products.

  • It is best to clean leather with a soft cloth. Using a small dab of leather cleaner on the soft cloth is also a great way to keep your product clean and polished. 

  • It is best to clean wax print textiles with a soft cloth. In the event of a stain, use a small dab of stain remover on your cloth and apply it to the affected area.

  • You can also take your handbag to your neighborhood dry cleaners that offers handbags and leather cleaning services.
