Care Instructions


The following information is provided as a guide only to cleaning your Mama Qucha products. Cleaning results may vary depending on the level of dirt and grime accumulated on your products. Mama Qucha is not responsible or liable for any possible damage incurred during the cleaning of your products.   

Please take care of your products in the first instance, as some stains such as grease from sunscreen and oil may not be able to be removed.

Turquoise and Dusty Pink non-waxed cotton – backpack and bottle holder

Spot clean with warm soapy water, being careful not to wet the leather, as the tannins in the vegetable-tanned leather may run if submerged in water. Hang to dry, and switch the bag from inside out to right side out throughout the drying process to prevent mildew.

Do not machine wash. Do not place in dryer. Do not dry-clean.

Turquoise and Dusty Pink non-waxed cotton – change mat

Spot clean and wipe clean in the first instance. Hand wash in warm soapy water if necessary.

Do not machine wash. Do not place in dryer. Do not dry-clean. Do not iron.

White waxed cotton canvas – backpack and bottle holder

Be careful around grease and grime, as this may be difficult to remove from the waxed cotton canvas.

  • Shake or brush off dirt, sand or any other abrasive material.
  • Start with plain water for cleaning.
  • For more stubborn spots, use cold water and mild soap, and a sponge or brush. With a little soap, gently massage the spotted surface. Test a small area first.
  • Rinse with a sponge and cold water, being careful not to wet the leather, as the tannins in the vegetable-tanned leather may run if submerged in water.
  • If the above does not work, spot clean with warm soapy water, again being careful not to wet the leather.
  • Let the bag air dry. Switch the bag from inside out to right side out throughout the drying process to prevent mildew.
