How To Care For Your Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Backpack
Since Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpacks come in a range of fabrics, the cleaning of yours depends on what it’s made of.
Fabric types include canvas and twill lining while other designs are made from polyester, cotton or nylon. However, the below cleaning instructions are based on canvas backpacks only.
How to clean canvas backpacks
While a canvas backpack is incredibly durable and able to withstand harsh elements, it can start to look soiled and blemished over time.
- Use a soft-bristle brush with water to gently rub the surface of the canvas, being sure not to rub too harshly.
- Use circular motions to remove any blemishes or dirt from the backpack.
- Saturate the brush in water and rub at the outer surfaces of canvas.
- Using a towel, soak up any water from the bag after the initial rubbing.
- Pour one cup of warm water and a little mild soap into a bowl.
- Soak your brush in the solution and repeat the process to eliminate any hard-to-remove stains.
- Soak up any excess water and soap using the towel.
- If some stains still remain, use a dry-cleaning stain remover. Apply the remover, leave it to soak and remove it using a damp soft cloth.
- Leave to air dry.
- Apply a spray or water-resistant product to safeguard the canvas after it’s dry.
- Are Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpacks waterproof?
No, Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpacks aren’t waterproof. But they’re water-resistant, meaning they aren’t totally waterproof. If a backpack is labeled ‘waterproof’, this means it can be totally immersed in water – and absolutely no water will get inside. This isn’t the case with Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpacks.
- Can I wash an Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpack?
Yes, you can hand wash your Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh backpack as per the instructions above. For canvas designs, use a brush to carefully wipe the backpack’s surface. Then mix some mild soap and water together in a bowl and soak a brush in the solution to get rid of difficult stains. Soak up any excess water using a towel. You can use a stain remover if any blemishes still remain and protect the canvas once dry with a water-resistant spray.
