Care


In order for your Wayuu Bag or Clutch to stay beautiful and durable, it's important to occasionally clean your favorite Hands of Colombia items. 
 

Shoulder Bags

Shoulder bags are best hand-washed.  Bags can be machine-washed inside out, but you run the risk of the tassels becoming tangled or unraveling. 

Spot treat your bag with a gentle detergent and water when necessary.

If your bag is very soiled, you might need to take it a step up, though.  

Hand Wash Instructions: Fill a bucket with cold water and a few tablespoons of detergent.  Use a detergent safe for all colors.  Turn bag inside out to protect drawstring and tassels.  Let bag soak in the bucket for 20 minutes.  Swish bag around several times, and remove soap by rinsing thoroughly in sink.  Ring out and let dry in the sun.  

If using a washing machine, be sure to turn the bag inside out and try to remove the draw-string.  Do not machine wash the draw string and tassels.  Wash on delicate cycle with a gentle detergent.  

Textured Clutch

Textured clutches cannot be machine washed.  However, a lint-remover is a great tool to keep yours clean.  Spot treat with a gentle detergent mixed with water.  If needed, mix 3/4 water and 1/4 liquid-fabric-softener in a spray bottle.  Lightly spray, and let air-dry.  

Leather Clutch 

Spot-treat Wayuu Design as needed using a gentle detergent mixed with water.  Be very careful to not let any detergent-mix fall on the leather.  Buff out any scratches in the leather using shoe polish and a towel.  

Leashes, Guitar Straps and Camera Straps

Spot-treat Wayuu Design as needed using a gentle detergent mixed with water.  Be very careful to not let any detergent-mix fall on the leather.  Buff out any scratches in the leather using shoe polish and a towel.
