We undergo 4 rounds of QC before our products reach customers.

Leather good is crafted in the finest skins. These leather and rattan are natural and unique:
Any tonal variations, marks or veins are natural features and should be perfections. 
.
The concept of good leather care is to maintain these coatings for as long as possible.
When allowed to build up, grime, dust, body oils are food stains can break down the coatings.
Which may change the condition are an appearance of your leather item.   

Remember your Kear bag is an organic artifact, and as lustrous as your new purchase may be,
when left to its own devices it can become dehydrated and dull over time.  
.
To ensure your KEAR bag ages beautifully, We recommend these key instructions are followed:  

             

/LEATHER/ 
CLEAN:

To clean your leather goods, wipe with s clear, non-abrasive and soft dry cloth.
Apply a cleaner specially made for leather. This “soft soap” is applied using a circular motion and wiped off
with a slightly damp cloth.  In case of contact with water, Do not rub the leather: Use a clean dry cloth and apply a gentle tapping motion to absorb the liquid.  


CONDITION: 
Think of conditioning as a moisturizer for your leather, which will dry out over time. To prevent flaking and wrinkling, dab a dollop of conditioner on a soft cloth and rub gently all over. Condition every month or so to keep your leather looking its shiny best. Stuff your unused bag with bubble wrap to restore and hold its shape.   


/RATTAN/  
CLEAN:
Keep the bag away from greasy substances (make-up) and alcohol (perfume, solvent). A feather duster or a clean, dry natural bristle paintbrush is the best way to remove dust. For deep cleaning, dampen a soft cloth very slightly with clean cold water and blot gently; then let bag air dry completely.                  

CONDITION:  
handle your bag with clean hands; free of lotion, oil or grease of any kind. Body oils can damage the bag as can high humidity, by causing stains, mold, and mildew.  KEAR items with braiding and weaving should avoid rubbing, sharp object and be handled with extra care. 

 
CARE:

* Best to keep it indoors, out of bright sunlight, and in air-conditioned or dehumidified rooms.  Avoiding high humidity area which can cause the woven fiber swell and distort. Also, too dry area can cause the woven straw brittle and prone to damage
* To prevent dust, better store wicker bag in the cotton bag than plastic bag since most material need to breathe, a temperature change can cause humidity to build up.
* In case, it gets wet, hurry wipe and air dry, ensuring the fiber is no longer in humid.
* To remove stains or dirt, using an old toothbrush dip it in the soap and water mixture. Gently rub the stained area following the grain of the straw. Then, wipe the area with a clean white cloth to remove any soap residue and air dry it.
* You may use tweezers to get out any embedded dirt, but be careful not to poke a hole in the wicker.
* Applying a little wood polish/oil for the bag to have some moisture.
* To keep bag in shape, stuff bag with paper when not in use.
* Do not hang. Store upright or lie flat to preserve shape.
* Finding mold or mildew on your basketry. Possibly to remove it carefully by using a mixture of bleach and water and gently rub it by damp soft cloth. However, not recommend to do it for delicate hand-painted motifs.
* Each piece is a delicate item, Please handle gently.
* Always store your bag in the dust bag and box provided when not in use.
* Please do not overload your bag.
