KEEP BAG DRY
All of our natural fibre ropes are hygroscopic. That means, they can soak up water and moisture very easily. In fact, jute ropes can absorb up to 34% of their mass in water – without even feeling wet. And, as a result of this property, they shrink whilst wet and are vulnerable to water damage and rotting. If it got wet, leave bag to dry naturally (away from direct sunlight).
One of the main benefits of natural rope is its pleasant, natural appearance. But to keep it looking nice it will need to be cleaned from time-to-time.
Vacuuming is a quick and easy way to get rid of any surface dust.
It’s important to note, you should never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or strong cleaning chemicals (e.g. bleach) to clean natural fibre ropes – as these can damage their structure, strength and colour. Hand wash if needed.
STORE BAG CORRECTLY
Natural ropes are typically resistant to UV light and heat. But, to keep them in prime condition, you should also aim to store them in a dark, cool, and dry place (with a humidity level below 65%). No folding while store.
