Please note that this bag design by The Wicker Girls is handmade and weaved by artisans and may vary in size and colour.
This bag is hand weaved. After the bag is hand weaved, it will be dried under the sun, and then smoked over coconut husks to stregthen. As such, the smell of the rattan is part of this beautiful natural product, which will fade over time.

Vacuum cleaner is a great way to keep Rattan Bags' crevises dust and grime free. Use the upholstery brush (if you don't have one, place an old pantyhose over the nozzle and use a rubber band to hold it in place) and give the bag a good vacuum.
Vacuum out and spot treat any stains if there's any on the inner lining.
To treat a heavily soiled spot on the straw, mix a few drops of dish detergent or mild soap in some warm water. Find an old toothbrush and dip it in the soap and water mixture. Gently rub the stained area with the soapy toothbrush following the grain of the rattan. Wipe the area with a clean white cloth that has been dipped in clean water to remove any soap residue and loosened soil. Never overwet the rattan. Allow to air dry away from direct sunlight.
