Backpack washing instructions
RiutBag is simple to clean: For light stains, use a damp cloth. For a complete refresh, RiutBag is machine washable up to 40 degrees centigrade. Do not use detergent: this breaks down waterproofing capabilities in RiutBag materials. Dry naturally, not in a machine or tumble dryer.
How RiutBag is made
Each RiutBag is designed 100% by Sarah Giblin. When the RiutBags are complete Sarah, RiutBag designer, checks every single one - seam by seam, zip by zip - to ensure they are right for you.
Each one is handmade at a sewing machine in Fujian, on the southern coast of China. So far, this is the best factory in the world that designer, Sarah Giblin, could find. Sarah spends 3-4 months per year at the RiutBag factory working alongside the staff, improving manufacturing techniques and designs every time and catching any errors which occur naturally when new, complex backpack designs are handmade by real people. Together with Sarah, two production teams of 22 people have made every RiutBag in existence.
