how to care for your products

Heirloom-quality means that we want you to pass down your products to the next generation. If you have any questions about how to maintain the quality for years to come, please reach out to our team.

leather care

We use full grain leather, which is the highest grade of leather. Scrapes, scars and marks are normal and not considered a defect of the products. Exposure to water and other liquids can unfortunately leave permanent stains. If your bag is exposed to liquid, we recommend dabbing a dry cloth to the affected area to absorb as much moisture as possible. Most customers prefer to allow the natural wear of the bag to form, however if you wish to condition the bag, we suggest you test a small area prior to conditioning the entire bag.

woven bag care

The canasta tote is made of a durable and waterproof recycled plastic. This bag can be packed, and will temporarily change shapes. Place towels inside the bag and use your hands to reshape it, and it will return to it original shape. 

hat care

Our hats, individually and intricately woven from palm fronds, are super durable yet delicate. We do not recommend fully submerging your hat in water, as it could cause swelling of the fibers and alter its shape and color. If your hat gets wet, please dry off the excess moisture with a towel or cloth, then air dry it in a cool, dry spot with good ventilation.

huipil care

Huipils are traditional textiles that go back centuries in Guatemala. The creation of each work of art can take up to one month for each one. Due to the nature of the handmade huipils, you may find loose threads or snags. This is normal, and the threads should only be snipped off. Do not pull the loose threads.
