How to take care of polyurethane bags?
Our bags that are made with polyurethane or ‘vegan-leather’ are very durable, and unlike real leather, they are waterproof.
The best way to care for your purse is to be gentle and treat it like your other purses. When not in use, properly store it away in a cool and dry place. To clean any dirty areas, use some warm, mild, soapy water and a cloth to gently spot clean. You may also use Goo Gone or some rubbing alcohol to spot clean areas that may be more difficult to remove than others, and allow it to air dry.
If there are any wrinkles or light creasing, we do not recommend applying any sort of heat, as that will damage the bag. We recommend stuffing the bag and letting it sit for a few days, as that will usually smooth out the wrinkles or creases.
How to take care of cork bags?
Our bags that are made with cork are very durable, but they are not waterproof, they are weather-proof. So they can endure splashes of rain, some snow and so on. If some rain or snow gets on the cork, we recommend wiping or drying those areas as early as possible, and allow it to air dry.
The best way to care for your cork purse is to be gentle and care for it like your other purses. When not in use, properly store it away in a cool and dry place, preferably in a dust bag. To clean any dirty areas, use some warm, mild, soapy water and a cloth to gently spot clean. You may also use some Goo Gone, a bit of rubbing alcohol, or a Lysol wipe to remove the more difficult blemishes, and allow it to air dry.
How to take care of faux suede material?
For the faux suede material parts, we do not recommend using any water as that will ruin the bag. We suggest using a bit of rubbing alcohol and a cloth, and rub the affected areas as needed until the stains are gone. Afterwards, lay the bag flat and allow the material to air dry. While drying, the faux suede material may become a bit stiff, so you can use a toothbrush or a soft brush and gently brush the material dry.
How to take care of velvet material?
Due to the nature of the velvet material and depending on the severity of any stains, the amount of time to clean and time for the product to dry will vary. In order to clean the velvet on our handbags, typically water, soft cloths, some bleach-free detergent, and a hairdryer.
We recommend some of the following solutions to maintain our new velvet purses:
For smaller blemishes/stains, you can use some cool water and a cloth to spot clean the affected areas and allow the bag to air dry or use a hairdryer on a cool setting while using a gentle brush on the velvet
For tougher blemishes/stains, you would need to prepare a well-mixed cleaning solution (cool water and small amount of bleach-free detergent). Dampen a cloth with this cleaning solution and gently spot clean the affected areas (do not rub the material as this may damage the bag). Afterwards use a dry clean cloth to gently brush the wet edges of the stains on the affected area (start from outside of the wet stain and work your way inwards to the center).
To avoid water stains, try to dry the bag as quickly as possible. You can use a hairdryer with cooler air settings for the last stage of drying.
We do not recommend dry cleaning or putting the bag into the washing machine.
Strong smell coming from bag?
The smell coming from the bag is sometimes caused by the process of producing the bag or from the time it spent in the shipment when it was being shipped.
To get rid of the smell safely, we recommend placing a dryer sheet inside the purse to absorb any odors and leave it for a few days. Alternatively, they could also air out the purse outside for a few days.
We don’t recommend spraying too much Febreeze or other sprays inside or outside the bag, as they ruin the purse.
