Pflege Info Canvas
Our canvas bags are made of heavy cotton canvas that is non-treated. This means that the canvas is not waterproof and it will bleech from sunlight, which gives the bags a nice worn look. If you want to protect the bag from rain, it is recommendable to impregnate the bag with impregnation that is made for protection of cotton garment. Always try on a small surface that is non-visible before you impregnate the whole bag. Dirt can normally be removed by a slight wettened sponge and some mild soap. The leather details can be treated in the way as described in the leather section.

Pflege Info Leder
Sandqvist leather bags and wallets uses full grain, vegatable-tanned leathers to achieve the natural feeling and a beautiful aging. No pigment is used to hide leather defects, why some scratches and marks will be visible on the leathers as a result of the natural process. This is normal and is not to be seen as a defect.

Vegetably tanned leather is influenced by sunlight, moisture and dirt. The leather will get a nice patina over the time if you take care of it in the right way.
– Sunlight will make bright leather darker over time.
– Hot and dry air can dry out the leather. If your bag has become wet, dry it in normal room temperature, not close to a radiator or similar.
– If the leather has become dirty, wipe it off with a moisted sponge and some mild soap if necessary. Wipe gently and don’t rub hard.
To make the bag withstand water and dirt better, you can impregnate it and grease it or treat the leather with leather balm. Greasing of bright leather normally gives it a sligtly darker colour tone. Always try on a small surface that is non-visible, to see how the colour changes, before you treat the whole bag. If you prefer to keep the original feeling, we recommend that you just treat the bottom of the bag, which is most affected when putting down the bag on wet ground. Ask at a shoe repair if you are unsure and always use products that are specially made for leather care.
