It’s probably been a little while since you received your Forester Products vegan leather piece and might be wondering how to your bag, wallet or belt looking its best?
Although cork is naturally scratch and stain resistant, the material may need to be freshened up from time to time. We’ve put together a little care guide for all your cork leather accessories. The process is very simple and doesn’t require many tools.
Firstly, you’ll need a bowl of warm water, and depending on how dirty your wallet is, add a few drops of dishwasher detergent to the basin. If you’re feeling creative, you can make your own natural detergent or check out the Ethical Superstore for some of the best eco-friendly detergents on the market.
The next step is to obtain a clean, soft cloth that will be used; you should gently dip it into the water (but not saturating) and rub the cloth on your item in a gentle, circular motion.
Move throughout the item to get rid of all blemishes and stains. Repeat this step until you are satisfied with the way your bag, belt or wallet turns out.
It’s important that your cloth is soft, as cork is a natural material that must be looked after. If you have a particularly rough and tough stain, we recommend using the softest toothbrush you can find to rub softly onto the material in a similar manner as above. We always recommend using a bamboo toothbrush. You can get them in most health food shops.
Repeat this process whenever you think your bag, wallet or belt is in need of a little TLC, to keep it looking its best.
