Product Care

Do not submerge in water, machine wash or tumble dry. To clean, wipe solid areas lightly with a damp cloth and air dry.

Each bag is finished with a waxed treatment, which will soften and fade slightly over time. To stiffen the bag again, and to remove the appearance of fine lines, simply iron lightly or warm the bag with a hairdryer and allow to cool. Do not store bags near heat sources or in direct sunlight.
