Care Guide Specifics

HOW TO CLEAN

Smooth and Pebbled Leather Care

  • Do a quick cleaning every other use, briskly sweeping your leather bag with a soft, dry, or slightly damp cloth.
  • Once or twice a year, do a more thorough cleaning to remove dirt buildup.
  • Wipe down your leather bag with leather specific cleaning wipes that can be found at a leather care supplier.
  • Remember to always test a small spot on the bag to ensure no damage.  
  • For more serious cleaning, please contact a leather cleaning professional. 

Suede Leather

  • Avoid any contact with water.
  • We recommend using a suede or nubuck protective non-aerosol spray prior to use for protection and waterproofing.
  • Use a dry, clean cloth and gently rub the surface if any watermarks show.
  • To remove dust, use a specialty suede brush.
  • Remember to always test a small spot on the bag to ensure no damage. 
  • For more serious cleaning, please contact a leather cleaning professional. 

HOW TO STORE

  • Store your daph. piece stuffed and upright, in a dust bag to keep its shape.

 

Baby Alpaca Fur

HOW TO CLEAN

  • Baby Alpaca fur is not machine washable. We recommend spot cleaning with a damp muslin cloth. Leave to dry naturally away from sources of heat such as radiators. Once dry, fluff up by shaking or using a cold hairdryer jet to separate the hair shafts, making them stand independently.
  • If larger cleaning is needed, we recommend you reach out to a green- fur cleaning specialist.
  • If you want to attempt to clean at home, we recommend handwashing. Wash in warm water with a mild soap (mild shampoo will do since it is hair!) and thoroughly rinse in water of the same temperature. Special care must be taken as wet Alpaca fabric can weaken and stretch out of shape. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water.
  • Dry naturally, away from any direct heat such as a radiator, or the alpaca fur will go stiff and crispy. It will take 24 hours to air dry properly.
  • Do not tumble dry.
  • Do not iron.
  • If brushing, use a tight bristled tangle brush or a ball-end plastic bristle hair brush to lightly brush through. Also, using a pet "slicker" brush works well to pick up particles and objects stuck in the fur and gives a nice thorough brushing.
  • Brush gently. Do not roughly brush, especially with a pet slicker brush. Use only these styles of brushes to brush.

Storage

  • Before storing, make sure that the item is fully dry.
  • Stuff and store in cotton dust bag.

Alpaca Fleece

HOW TO CLEAN

  • Read the care label for the garment, and follow as instructed.
  • Some garments are required to be dry clean only. We recommend using a green dry cleaner, if available.
  • May be hand-washed in cold water with a gentle detergent.
  • Eliminate water excess by laying your sweater flat inside a towel, roll the whole thing up, and squeeze as much excess water out as you can. Do not wring.
  • Lay your semi-wet sweater out flat on a dry towel and leave it to dry.
  • Steam to remove wrinkles, if necessary.
  • To freshen between wears, spritz a delicate fabric spray with antibacterial properties to remove odor.
  • Pilling naturally occurs on natural fibers. We recommend using a fabric comb to remove pilling.

HOW TO STORE

  • Store folded, do not hang as garments may be pulled due to gravity.
  • For long-term storage, avoid plastic bins as they can attract moisture and bugs.
  • We recommend storing your garments in cotton storage bags as bugs can't eat through cotton, and the natural, breathable fabric helps the moisture escape—preventing it from being retained.

 

Pima Cotton

HOW TO CLEAN

  • We recommend gently handwashing in cold water with mild soap for best care. 
  • If using a washing machine, place the garments inside a mesh bag when using the washer and avoid snagging on any other items in the wash. Use the gentle/delicate cycle with cold water. 
  • Never use chlorine bleach.
  • Eliminate water excess by laying your garment flat inside a towel, roll the whole thing up, and squeeze as much excess water out as you can. Do not wring.
  • Lay your semi-wet garment out flat on a dry towel and leave it to dry.
