Materials & Care

 

Care For Your Bags

-Our canvas is never washed or pre-shrunk. This allows the customer to wear and break-in the raw material however he/she wishes.

-Canvas should be spot cleaned with a cold damp cloth and mild soap whenever possible.

-Always air dry away from any heat source to avoid shrinkage.

-Avoid machine washing any product with leather.

-Clean leather with a damp cloth or leather soap and allow to air dry

-We pre-treat leather with a beeswax to soften and protect from the weather. Repeat this process whenever leather appears to be dry or after washed and air-dried. Mink oil also works well.

-Colored materials may transfer and bleed with initial use. 

 

Leather

We purchase full leather hides from a local distributor less than a mile from our studio. We primarily use 8-10oz vegetable-tanned leather hides for all of our straps and accents. The leather is cut in our shop and treated with beeswax to soften and protect from the weather before being sewn or riveted on to the product.
