How do I care for my Svala handbag?

Each Svala handbag comes with an organic cotton protective dust bag. When not in use, we recommend storing your Svala handbag in this dust bag and stuffing it gently with clean paper or bubble wrap to retain the shape, away from direct sunlight or humid environments.

Please avoid putting unnecessary pressure on your bag or folding it and avoid hanging your bag by its straps when storing.

How do I clean my Svala handbag?

The cleaning method depends on which material your Svala bag is made with. Please see below for more details:


Cork is easily cleaned with water and mild soap. Simply wipe the dirty spot with a clean cloth and a little liquid natural soap and water. Remove any excess soap with a damp cloth and allow the item to dry naturally. Cork does not need to be conditioned.

Polyurethane and Polyester

Wipe the handbag with a dry soft cloth or with a slightly damp soft cloth.


To keep your Piñatex® product in top condition, we recommend to wax Piñatex products before use and thereafter on a regular basis with a natural wax. After application, leave the product in a warm place for 24 hours and rub gently with a soft cloth. We also recommend using Liquiproof ProtectorTM, a natural non-toxic coating that will make the product water and stain resistant.

Do not bleach, dry clean, tumble dry, iron or machine wash. Clean by hand only.
