To refresh your one-of-a-kind handmade goods... GG's personal recommendations are as follows:
FOR BEST RESULTS... SPOT CLEAN • COLD WATER USE ON ALL FABRIC BAGS. Individual results may vary. Always pretest in an unnoticeable area first!
Mild soap only if needed! Gentle eco cleaning products are highly recommended! Commercial soap products with harsh detergents, dyes or fragances could result in fabric fading or color bleeding and may break down delicate fibers.
RAW DENIM & Interior Fabrics • ALWAYS PRE-TEST First! Cleaning 'raw' or 'dry' (unwashed) denim or canvas fabrics may alter the fabric color & leave a lighter spot in cleaned area. • Spot clean w/soft damp cloth while using a gentile touch: mild soap only if necessary.
VINTAGE FABRICS: EXTRA special care is highly recommended! Most of our stock vintage fabrics are in ‘mint condition'... 'virgin vintage' = new vintage stock, unused. These fabrics can be more delicate considering the age, various dyes, inks or previous storage. • ALWAYS PRE-TEST 1st in inconspicuous area! Spot clean with caution. Use soft slightly damp cloth with very gentle touch & very little soap only if needed.
All of GGS leather components are vintage or reclaimed & cleaned with non-toxic sustainable leather conditioner. Avoid excessive exposure to water and moisture to keep leather from drying out!
• Dry brush any loose dirt on leather. Wipe with soft slightly damp cloth. • IF STAINS: use small amount of saddle soap or non-toxic leather cleaner. Wipe dry.
WEBBING STRAPS • SHOULDER STRAPS: remove from bag. Spot clean or hand wash in cold water: mild soap if needed. Rinse. Towel dry. Dry flat. • TOTE STRAPS: wipe gently using dry-damp cloth away from bag fabric, mild soap if needed. Towel dry.
PS: If you should choose conventional dry cleaning methods... I have no guarantees since I personally don’t use this process for cleaning.
CARRY OFTEN... WASH LESS... ENJOY! Thanks- GG
