Q: How do I clean my bag?
A: Waxed canvas is special in that it doesn't require regular cleaning. The wax finish is designed to repel water and stains. Stains can be spot cleaned with a small brush, warm water and saddle soap/bar soap. No detergents though! They will break down the wax finish. Air dry in a warm, sunny spot.
Q: How often should I condition my bag?
A: Day to day use will eventually wear down some of the waxy finish and lose its water-repellant qualities. I like to re-wax my bags yearly -- at the same time as my winter boots! Regular conditioning will ensure your bag looks great and lasts a long time.
Q: How do I condition my bag?
A: Use a can of Otter Wax or Martexin wax (I sell cans), and work in a small amount on the area you wish to condition. Warm up the area with a hair dryer and work the wax into the fabric with a cloth. Let it "dry" in a warm, sunny place.
Q: Do you take custom orders?
A: Absolutely! While most dimension changes are off the table, all of the colors are customizable. If you see a wool you like on a backpack but you want a satchel, let me know! Although most stock is limited edition or one of a kind, I have more fabric than what is on the site.
