Care of Canvas and Cotton on our caps, bags and luggage will predominantly depend on intended use and requirements.
Generally, cotton and canvas should be sprayed from new, and then once every few months, or more regularly depending if they are used on a day to day basis. The cotton and canvas can be treated with:
The Suede and Nubuck Protector
The Suede and Nubuck Protector will give an all round treatment. The Protector should be sprayed from a minimum of a foot away, lightly covering the areas required and leave to prove over the course of 3-4 hours before use. This should be repeated once a month, or more regularly with day to day use. Please spray the Proofer in a well ventilated area!
Cotton and Canvas are hard wearing materials, but can pick up marks from time to time. Many basic marks can be treated by leaving the dirt/ mud/ water to dry naturally, and then brushing lightly.
For further marks or for general cleaning, the Liquiproof Eco-Cleaner found in the Liquiproof Footwear Complete Care Travel Kit will remove the most common day-to-day marks or accumulated dirt.
Use the cleaner like a soap heavily diluted in warm water. Work it lightly into the suede with a soft brush, wiping away excess and residue with a damp cloth. Leave to dry naturally, then brush and reapply either the Suede and Nubuck Protector or Liquiproof Premium Protector. Don’t be tempted to use too much cleaner or oversaturate the product, as this can cause the dye to fade!
