This bag is made from a combination of recycled cotton and waxed canvas; it is vegan and 92% biodegradable (Cora + Spink are working on the other 8%). Made with the assistance of co-operatives in India, who directly support communities with good wages, freedom from exploitation, and schemes to promote business growth.
Your bag can be wiped down with a damp cloth and allowed to dry naturally. A more rugged approach is to take a natural bristle brusg, and clean with soap and water. Try not to submerge the entire pack in water. Always allow the bag to dry slowly.
With time, the natural canvas will change colour developing a unique patina, the more use the more distinguished your backpack will become.
A wax past can be applied to increase the waterproof qualities of the bag.
We recomment Cora + Spink wax products.
