Tips and Tricks – How to treat your treasures with care!

 

Jewelry

Your jewelry will last longer when handled with care. Don’t let your jewelry get in touch with perfume, make-up or cleansing fluid. Preferably  don’t shower, swim or sport with your jewelry. Unless you want to create your own, vintage look? In that case you might keep wearing your bracelets while surfing or sun bathing. Furthermore, it’s wise to keep your jewelry in the supplied mini-bag which came with your order, or store it in your own jewelry box.

Silver
When your silver jewelry is really dirty, you can clean these with a soft cloth, some water and green soap. Never put your silver jewelry in a silver bath, this affects the silver.

Cord & silk
Jewelry with incorporated cord and silk cannot stand water. Use a dry soft cloth to clean these items somewhat.

Rosé gold & yellow gold
Gold en rosé gold jewelry is often manufactured of Sterling silver jewelry, plated with gold. It is unwise to use silver polish on your gold or rosé gold jewelry, you will polish of the gold layer. 

Wood
Clean occasionally, as needed, with a mild soap and water. Dry thoroughly. Condition your organic jewelry lightly with jojoba oil or another natural oil (Coconut oil?!) do not soak in anything, do not boil or autoclave! And as goes for all jewelry, store in a cool, dry place such as your dresser top or jewelry box. Do not leave for extended time in your car, sunny window, or other hot or sunny place. Do not leave your organic jewelry in a place where it may become wet, such as your bathroom sink or in the shower.


Bags

Batik 
Batik is an amazing and ancient method of color dyeing. It is a method using wax to create patterns and designs. There is a rich culture and tradition behind this handicraft. To develop a beautiful batik requires a lot of patience and practice. Typical Indonesian batik has characters of mystic and ritualistic connection. Common designs are flowers, trees, birds and tribal prints. All of them have a significant meaning. The finest batik of the world is still made in Indonesia. The beauty of batik lies in its simplicity. Batik is best washed at 30° separately and please, do not bleach.

Leather
Leather cannot stand water very well. If you still clean it or it gets wet, we recommend to not dry the leather on a heat source but simply in the open air.
Grease stains on your bag can be removed with talc powder. Sprinkle talcum powder on the stain, press lightly with your fingers and let the bag rest for a few days with the powder on it. After a few days remove the powder and you will find that the grease spot has reduced.
Suede bags can be cleaned gently with a suede brush. Also it is wise to impregnate leather bags and purses with an impregnation spray.

Leatherette
Real leather is somewhat more resilient than leatherette. Handle your leatherette bag or phone cover with extra care.
