Caring for your Sqiins

SQIINS maintenance

Keeping your SQIINS looking great depends both on the material and your own aesthetic preferences – some people like their bags to acquire a ‘worn in look’ others like to keep them looking brand new. Either way, there are some basic care recommendations you should adhere to:

  • Never wash them in a washing machine.
  • Never dry-clean them.
  • Protect them from direct heat sources such as radiators, particularly with dark canvas colours.
  • Store them in their dust bag away from direct sunlight.
  • Avoid contact with toiletries and cosmetics.

Leather

The beauty of leather is the minor variations in colour and imperfections that it picks up over time. This all helps tell the story of who you are and where you’ve been and should be embraced as part of owning something truly unique.

However, over time, you may find your leather bag begins to dry out and/or needs a clean. In this case, follow our simple instructions below:

  1. Remove any dirt or dust with a cloth or clean brush.
  2. For more stubborn dirt, use a slightly dampened cloth. Then allow to dry naturally.
  3. To keep it supple, rub in a good quality leather cream and buff with a clean soft cloth.
