Care instructions: never soak your wool backpack in water. Lightly dab fresh stains with a clean wet cloth. Or use a wool brush available in stores online. You can also lightly rub some fresh powdery snow over the wool parts of your backpack in the winter, this will refresh it. Let it dry in the shade to preserve the colors and away from any heat source. Wool is naturally water-repellent. Use baby lotion on the leather parts.

Delivery time: it will be 8 weeks until you receive your package. Packages ship registered by the Mexican postal service "Correos de Mexico" and will reach you by your own national postal service. A signature will be required upon arrival.
