Do you offer repairs? Also, how do I clean this bag? 

We are happy to repair items made by Stitch & Rivet, LLC. If the issue is a defect in craftsmanship or hardware we will perform the repair for free up to one year from purchase. If the issue is normal wear and tear or other accidental or intentional damage (stuff happens, we get it) we are happy to discuss the best course of action to get your item back to useable condition, repairs of that nature are charged at a reasonable hourly fee plus materials. We are pleased to stock Otter Wax brand waxed canvas and leather care products in our workshop and we suggest their products for cleaning and re-waxing Stitch & Rivet bags. Please note: we do not offer repairs, work on, or otherwise alter items we have not made.

Canvas Care: In order to maintain the wax finish we suggest you spot clean with water and a very mild soap only when absolutely necessary, or just wipe clean with water and air dry. Do not put waxed canvas items in a washing machine or dryer. If re-waxing is required supplies can be purchased from Stitch & Rivet.

Leather Care: In order to maintain your leather pieces you should wipe clean any dirt spots with a damp cloth and allow to air dry, if desired, use a small amount of high-quality leather conditioner such as Otter Wax Leather Salve on a soft cloth to gently rub over the entire item. Do not apply any solvent based cleaner as it can cause irreparable damage to leather. Always test a product in an inconspicuous spot before use. 

For specific cleaning issues or concerns (like: I spilled a yogurt in this bag, what do I do now?) please email Stitch & Rivet.

Do you take custom orders?

We do not accept custom orders, or act as a manufacturer or provide private label/white label designs for other brands.
