When not in use, store your bag someplace cool and dry. Please note that excess levels of humidity can cause the cork to break apart over time, so we recommend getting a dehumidifier if you live in an area with high humidity and not bringing your bag with you into a sauna.
Although our cork handbags are inherently stain-resistant and anti-bacterial, they can pick up dirt and need to be cleaned from time to time. Do not use any product containing alcohol to clean your bag as the alcohol will damage the cork.
How to clean your cork bag
Step 1: With a dry towel, wipe off any visible dirt covering the surface of your cork bag.
Step 2: Fill an adequate sized dish with warm water. Add a few drops of mild dish soap or liquid detergent. The trick here is to make sure the water isn’t too bubbly.
Step 3: Take a clean towel and dip it into the solution. Wring it out to make sure it isn’t too wet.
Step 4: Rub the surface of your cork bag with the wet towel. Make sure to cover the entire bag, and to get the places where dirt/markings are apparent. Repeat the process as needed until the difficult spots are gone.
Step 5: Remove excess moisture with a dry cloth and allow your bag to dry in the shade. Ensure it is completely dry before using it again.
