Materials & Care
1. WHERE ARE OUR BAGS MADE?
Each bag is handcrafted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in our non-smoking studio.
2. WHERE WE SOURCE OUR MATERIALS?
Most of our fabrics, leather, and hardware are sourced from Malaysia to ensure the highest possible quality.
We also partner with Fuji Kinume® , a premium Japan-made canvas brand owned by Kawashima Shoji Co., Ltd.. Known for their waxed textile technology, Fuji Kinume® has realized a unique surface texture for its water resistant canvas line by arranging the waterproofing material used in truck hoods and tents in the old days.

3. HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY BAG?
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, or hose off with cold water and hang dry..
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. If water does not remove the spot, add a few drops of mild, non-bleaching detergent like soap to your water and repeat circular motion on the canvas, wipe away any soap residue.
If washing is necessary, we recommend careful hand washing. 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.
Genuine leather ages gracefully and need not be washed. A patina will show with the wear and tear of time and can be preserved through occasional greasing.
Leather may dry out in hot and dry air. Please keep the product in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
