Care Instruction

Pokhara Collection
To preserve and enjoy our Pokhara Collection products with the natural colors and to keep them at their best, please follow our instructions for care and cleaning :
  • General : Spot clean with wet cloth (gentle soap and cold water can be used). If machine wash is necessary, set on GENTLE and SHORT cycle, use cold water and gentle soap. Do not soak the products, and hang to air dry. (see below on the exclusion of natural coloring)
  • If you see slight discoloring, it is from natural dye process. There may at times the color requires one "gentle" cold water spot clean (see below on the exclusion of natural coloring)
  • If you find loose weave threads, do NOT pull them. You can either push the thread into the cloth or cut the threads with scissors.
  • Note: we do not use natural colors for Black, Red and Dark/Navy Blue, therefore avoid the first contact with liquid, as the product or item in contact may be stained.
  • A common feedback for woven products : Our customers use Scotchgard Fabric Protector on the fabric area of the bag to protect it from water or any other liquid or stains. We cannot fully guarantee on this use yet, as we have not tested the effectiveness with products made with natural colors. Please read the information on the fabric protector product before using it.
Java Collection
To maintain the lifespan of our Java Collection products, please see the instruction below for easy care and maintenance:
  • Since Java Collection products use upcycled tire inner tube and/or repurposed army tent as material, they are durable. Enjoy them everywhere, even when swimming (in fresh or salt water), snorkeling and scuba diving
  • To clean dirty products, simply apply a dab of dish soap onto the stain and gently rub it with a damp towel or an old toothbrush.
  • Ink marks, grease and oil stains may be removable.
Bamboo Straws
Caring and preserving our Bamboo Straws is easy!
  • For everyday use: rinse them out under the tap after use, or put them in a jar of soapy water and shake it; if something is still stuck inside, you may use a small brush.
  • To sterilize and super thorough clean, you can boil your bamboo straws for a few minutes, in a pot of water with a spoonful of white vinegar.
  • Allow the straws to dry fully
  • Note: Bamboo straws can last for years; however since these products are natural, lifespan and sizing may vary.
