Canvas Cotton Bag

How to care for your bag?

Most of our products are made by Canvas /waxed canvas cow hide leather and vegetable tanned leather.

To remove dirt, you can wipe the fabric with a moistened sponge carefully.

To clean stain on the canvas, you can use a clean, soft white cloth or toothbrush and dampen with water. Apply cloth or toothbrush in circular motion across spot. Be gentle, as hard rubbing on the fabric may cause spots. Use a soft white cloth to clean so that color doesn’t bleed onto canvas.

If water does not remove spot, add a few drops of a mild, non-bleaching detergent like soap to your water and repeat circular motion on the canvas, rinse the cloth well and wipe away any soap residue to ensure no soap remains on bag.

If washing is absolutely necessary, we recommend careful hand washing. Don’t use washing machine please. If hand washed, use warm water and a mild, non-bleaching detergent. Stretch the wet product and let it air dry completely in a cool place away from direct sunlight or heat. When the bag is almost completely dry, you can re-grease the leather details.

Beware of light clothing as canvas color may come off with friction, sweat and water, the leather may dry out with hot and dry air. Please keep the product in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight or heat.

Canvas and vegetable tanned leather are special materials which can reflect time. If the bag is taken care well, the color of canvas will bleed by days and the leather will age in a beautiful way. Every canvas bag will get its own unique look with time.

How should I care for waxed canvas bag?

Waxed cotton canvas is a rugged water-resistant material and can be used for years without washing. Waxed canvas should not be machine washed as the detergent and washing will deteriorate the fabric. To spot clean dirty areas, simply use a damp cloth and let air dry.

Is the bag waterproof?

Waxed Canvas

Waxed canvas and water resistant bags are not machine washable or dry cleanable. It is best to simply hose it off with cold water. Your gear should stay dry even if you get caught in the rain, but we recommend keeping the bag in a dry place when possible.

Clothing

How does your clothing fit?

Please refer our Size & Fit page for details about each of our products.

I ordered two shirts of the same size, why is one smaller?

Some of the designs are printed on different style shirts. Check the product description for any special sizing notes or refer to our Size & Fit page here.

How should I care for my tees, crewnecks, and hoodies? Will they shrink?

We recommend turning them inside out and machine or hand washing on cold. Since all of the shirts have some percentage of cotton, they will tend to shrink a little after being washed and dried. To minimize the shrinking, machine dry low or hang dry.

What type of printing process is used on your clothing?

All of our shirts and hoodies are screen printed. Most of the shirts are printed with water-based or discharge ink which leaves an extremely soft print. Check the product pages for the specific type of printing for each individual product.

Will the printing on the tees fade?

We use high quality water-based inks to produce the softest printing possible. Some of the printing may fade a little after multiple washes.

Leather Goods

What type of leather do you use?

The premium full-grain English Bridle leather sourced from Wickett & Craig, one of the leading tanneries in the world that’s been producing leather for over 120 years. This leather is soft to the touch yet super durable and will develop a beautiful patina over time with use and wear.

The cards are a little hard to take in and out of the wallet, will it stretch out?

Yes, the card slots are designed to fit the exact size of a credit card so they may seem tight at first. Over time the leather will stretch out with use and the cards will be much easier to get in and out of the wallet.

What should I do to care for my leather products?

Leather will absorb the oils from your hands and may not need any maintenance. If the leather seems to be drying out, you can condition it with mink oil or neatsfoot oil. Apply a light coat of oil and work it into the leather using your hands or a dry cloth. Allow leather to dry before using.
