Q: Why waxed canvas? 

AWaxed canvas is a perfect match for what is needed in a carryall or “diaper bag”.  Besides being extremely strong, durable and breathable, it’s also water resistant. We know that not everything that goes into a diaper bag is dry or smells great – and spills happen – therefore the decision to use waxed canvas was an easy one.  The durability and versatility of this material will extend the lifetime of the bag, AND like all of us… it gets better looking with age. We hope this becomes your “everything” bag and serves you well beyond the baby years.

Q: There are marks on my waxed canvas – help!? 

A: That’s the beauty of waxed canvas … like leather that patinas, over time you may see the natural marks of wear which gives it an authentic and original look. We appreciate this about waxed canvas but in case you do not…. you can always use a warm hairdryer to apply heat to the marks and they will disappear.

Q: How do I clean my Momkindness waxed canvas bag? 

A: Lightly scrub away dried dirt with a soft bristle brush or sponge.  Try using just cold water to wipe away any spots before applying any soap to your cloth. If soap is needed, use cold water and a small amount of mild soap applied to a clean cloth and gently rub onto the spot.  Rinse away any soap from the canvas with cold water and air dry. 
Do not machine wash or dry, do not dry clean or use hot or warm water to clean. Do not use detergent. 

Q: Are your straps interchangeable and/or can I use my own bag strap? 

A: All straps on our Carry-All Tote Trio and Change-it-Up Diaper Clutch are detachable, can be used interchangeably and can be used to carry our bags in many different ways – messenger style, backpack, over the shoulder or cross body. You can also attach your own favorite strap to change things up with a stylish twist!
