Removing Stains

Our serape accessories are made from cotton, which can naturally repel dirt. However, life happens and things can get dirty. Please follow these simple steps to remove stains from your serape woven accessories.

  1. For an easy clean, use a soft bristled brush. These are available online and in most craft stores.
  2. To remove a stain, please use a mild detergent (such as synthrapol or a pH neutral detergent) that doesn't let the colors bleed back into the fabric. 
  3. Dilute the detergent in a bowl of water.
  4. Then drip a clean cotton cloth into the solution and squeeze out any excess water.
  5. Next, gently rub the fabric with the cloth to remove the stain. Be careful not to get any leather trim wet.
  6. Lastly, let the bag air dry. Do not put the item in the washer or dryer.


Proceed with cleaning at your own risk. Always test any detergents or chemicals on a small section of the material first before cleaning the entire item. We are not responsible for any discoloration that might occur during the cleaning process.

Zipper Care

All of our apparel and accessories use top of the line zippers. Sometimes zippers can get dirty and need a little attention. Please follow these simple steps to help clean and lubricate the zipper.

  1. First inspect the zipper for anything that might be blocking it.
  2. Using warm water and a cloth, wipe the zipper to remove any substance that may be causing the zipper to get stuck.
  3. If stiffness still occurs, try lubricating the zipper with vaseline, chapstick or a bar of soap. 
  4. Apply a small amount to the zipper and then zip the zipper back and forth to help lubricate it. 


Enjoy your handbag for years to come by properly storing it when you're not using it. Please follow these tips to properly store your bag.

Don't hang it
Try to not hang your bag when you're not using it. Instead stand the bag upright on a shelf.

Keep it out of direct sunlight
Direct sunlight can cause the leather and fabrics to fade or discolor. Store the bag somewhere without direct sunlight and low humidity to avoid mold.

Maintaining shape
Stuff your handbags with towels or sweaters to help the bag maintain it's shape when you're not using it.
