Bag Care

One of the best things about dry-waxed canvas fabric is how it ages. Over time it develops a beautiful patina, making each bag unique. 

Through our journey we have modified our materials over time. There are two main types of materials we have used and how you maintain your bag depends on what material your bag is made of. If in doubt, contact us and we will tell you how to reproof your individual bag.

  • Bags BEFORE August 2021 (EXCLUDING VOLUME 1)

    → Hand wash only. These bags don’t like washing machines.

    → If it gets dirty, let it dry and then brush off the dirt.

    → It is advised to reproof your bag after washing.

  • Bags AFTER August 2021 (INCLUDING VOLUME 1)

    → Hand-washing is preferred, HOWEVER this material can be machine washed. Ensure to wash at 30℃ on low speed and let completely dry.

    → Only machine wash 1-2 times per year. 

    → If it gets dirty, let it dry and then brush off the dirt.

    → It is advised to reproof your bag after washing.

As with any water resistant product, it will need reproofing over the course of its life. 

  • Fabric has slightly waxy feel

    If you purchased a bag that has a slight waxy feel (colours include black, forest, grey, green, navy or sandstone in colour), you can reproof your bag with either a wax bar or reproofing spray. 

  • Fabric does not have a waxy feel

    If you purchased a bag that doesn’t have a slight waxy feel (colours include khaki, dark blue, yellow) and every bag after August 2021, you can only reproof your bag with reproofing spray. 

To ensure it's kept at its water repellent best, we suggest you reproof your pack once every one to two years, depending on use.
