HOW DO I
LOOK AFTER
MY ULSTO BAG?

OUR PRODUCTS REQUIRE NO MAINTENANCE

Our felt is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and therefore it protects your items from wind, weather and bumps. only because of rough clothing can pilling occur.

Cork is a natural product, very robust and water repellent. it can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.

WHAT IS PILLING?

Pilling is the formation of knots or fluff on the surface of textiles. The unattractive fluff always occurs when fabric fibres come loose and become knotted and matted by friction (especially on the back of our bags).

HOW TO REMOVE THE LUMPS?

Please do not pull the knots on your bag or rucksack. By plucking the fibres are being loosened further and as a consequence even more fibres can loosen and knot. For the long-term preservation of your beloved bag, you can follow one of the tips below:

REMOVE LOOSE KNOTS WITH THE LINT ROLLER

Run the lint roller over the pilling affected areas on your bag. Loose nodules then stick to the adhesive strip.

Tip: You can also remove loose fluff by dabbing the bag with a piece of adhesive tape.

BRUSH AWAY UNRULY PILLING

In the drugstore there are specially developed lint brushes with which coarse lumps can be brushed away quickly and easily by hand.

SHAVE OFF FIRM PILLING

You can remove particularly heavily matted lumps with an electric pilling razor or a simple disposable razor.

It's best to use a razor with a fresh blade, without soap strips. place your bag on a smooth surface and shave carefully and with little pressure over the affected areas. You can then collect the knots and dispose of them in the plastic waste.

Attention: Always guide the razor in one direction only to prevent holes from forming!

HOW DO I
CLEAN
MY ULSTO BAG?

All products, which are made of cork and our vegan felt, can be wiped off for small stains or even washed completely in the washing machine. This is done most Gently with a wash bag, at 30°C and without fabric softener.

Our hipbag Faginea can be washed in the same way. The only product that must not end up in the washing machine is our Pontica. This is because it loses its water-repellent properties. Therefore the interior is removable and may be washed separately as usual.
