Storksak bags are designed to withstand the stresses that parents subject them to, and are made from premium and high tech materials. We offer a limited repair service, however we believe that by giving you the know-how to look after you bag, will help keep your bag looking its best for as long as possible.
Leather is a natural material and is durable and strong, but the nature of the leather means the leather will soften as it ages. Loss of structure would be considered normal wear and tear. Our leathers have a durable top surface applied to them, this help to protect the bag from liquids, it is normal for the surface layer to show signs of wear in areas of heavy use eg. corners and handles. You can use leather products to repair signs of wear in these areas.
You may also choose to regularly use a leather cream to keep the leather supple and apply a water protective spray to help maintain your bag's water resistant properties. Please test any products on an inconspicuous area of your bag first.
Painted leather edges may wear or crack over time and is normal wear and tear. We recommend never hanging your bag by any handle with a painted edge. If cracking does occur, repair kits can be purchased from various online stores.
All our bags are lined with a premium water-resistant material that can be wiped clean. Do not put your Storksak bag in a washing machine.
* Note: our Changing Mats are machine washable at 30 degrees with air dry*.
ZipsIf your zips get stuck, avoid yanking it free. Use a little bit of clear lip balm to loosen the zip, and it should return to its normal function after some gentle opening and closing.
We use premium metal plating on all our hardware but please be aware that this can fade over time depending on environmental factors, especially in areas of heavy use.
