How to Use

  • Easy Rolling:
    1. Place the handles inside the bag and lay it flat, with the button and cord pulled out.
    2. Fold into thirds by bringing the left and right sides into the center, and then roll up from the bottom.
    3. Secure the roll with the button and cord - similarly to an umbrella - and you’re all set.
  • Secure Pocket:
    • The inside pocket can be secured by threading the button strap through the loop on the pocket and closing the snap. This will keep items inside secure without having to worry about your belongings falling out.

Care Instructions

  1. Hand or machine wash them in COLD water.
  2. Flat or line dry.
  3. Color bags are pre-washed during the dyeing process, so shrinkage is minimal. Natural bags are unprocessed canvas, so expect 5-10% shrinkage on first wash.
  4. You can stretch the bag back out and reduce wrinkles by pulling on the fabric and smoothing the wrinkles on a flat surface when the bag is wet.
  5. After stretching and smoothing, lay it flat and air dry.
