Use & Care

 

MATERIALS
All Foxtail Goods packs are made from oiled vegetable-tanned leather and hand-waxed locally milled cotton. Due to the handmade craftsmanship of our materials no two bags are identical. Please note colors may vary slightly from one another and what is shown on our website.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FOXTAIL LEATHER GOODS
All Foxtail Goods leather products are specifically designed to age beautifully over time while requiring little to no maintenance. Our durable designs can handle the elements, but like all leather products, avoid excessive exposure to water and moisture. Maintenance is mostly about common sense;  if you happen to set your bag down in a puddle try to dry as soon as possible, or if the leather begins to collect dirt, simply wipe off with a damp cloth.

If you would like to re-hydrate or jump-start the caramelization and softening process of the leather on your pack, we recommend Otter Wax Leather Oil - but be careful because a little goes a long way!

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY WAXED CANVAS PRODUCTS?

Waxed fabrics have been used for many years due to their low maintenance and durability. Like all waxed canvas, the natural development of kinks, scars and marks will develop and become part of the character and patina of your pack.

Waxed fabrics should be treated similarly to leather goods, which means they should never be washed or dry cleaned. If your waxed canvas good becomes dirty, simply wipe done with a damp cloth. If a deeper clean is needed you can purchase a specialized cleaning product - we recommend Otter Wax Canvas Cleaner.
