How to care for Spartina Linen
Spartina Handbags are made of heavy woven linen. All of our linen is treated with a stain and water resistant coating. Our recommendation for care is spot cleaning with a cloth just slightly dampened with warm water.
How to care for Spartina leather
Dampen a lint-free cloth with cool water and wipe the leather clean. Start from the top of the leather and wipe — do not rub — while moving downward. Refrain from saturating it; then let air-dry. Buff it with a lint-free cloth dampened with leather cleaner and conditioner.
Keep all leather away from direct heat and sunlight. Do not dry clean leather or use all-purpose cleaners. Store all types of leather in a cool, dry location that has low humidity.
How to care for Spartina jewelry
Our jewelry is plated with precious metals and therefore requires proper care. It is not designed to wear around-the-clock. Please give it a break from time to time. Remove your jewelry when washing hands, swimming, exercising or bathing and before you apply personal body products like make up, lotion or perfume.
Plating can react by darkening when over exposed to air and light. Store in a fabric pouch or closed box away from sun or heat. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom where steam and moisture may affect it.
Gold & Silver Plating
Our jewelry has a protective lacquer finish that helps keep tarnishing at bay. Use a soft dry cloth or slightly dampened cloth with water only to clean it. Dry immediately. Do not rub too briskly or you could damage the lacquer and cause tarnishing to occur. Never use any chemicals or soaps.
Clean with warm water and a mild liquid soap. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use harsh jewelry chemical cleaners or treated polishing cloths.
