We recommend reproofing your bag once every year with 'Oilskin Reproofer Spray' from merchantandmills.com - it's ideal for keeping all your dry oilskin garments in tip top condition.
Directions for use:
Do any pre cleaning you wish to do, for example brushing off any dirt and grime. Can be used on damp or dry cloth. Shake bottle well and spray from 10-15cm. Rubbing over with a cloth dampened in reproofer will ensure better performance and reduces runs. Allow to dry for 12 hours.
Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged contact with skin. Use in a well ventilated area.
Wax cotton, cracks, creases and patinas, which is part of its beautiful character. The fabric tells the journey of the wearer through its gained vintage appearance. How charming is that? The beauty of waxed cotton is its durability and longevity. The densely woven cotton is strong and reliable and unlike many alternatives, can be maintained by the end user. To clean this fabric you will require a pan of hot water and a soft cloth or sponge: Brush off any dirt or grit then sponge down with cold water.
We recommend that you re-wax your bag yearly with Halley Stevensons Tin Wax: Stand the tin of wax in hot water to soften the dressing. Work the dressing well into the garment using the cloth or sponge. Pay attention to seams, creases and dry patches. Rub in well, don’t paint it on. Do not use excess dressing. For a “factory” finish, blow evenly with a hairdryer. Hang the garment overnight in a warm place.
