Each Affaires piece is crafted by hand in Australia, made slowly and with consideration. Calling upon pure, natural fibres like OEKO-TEX certified Australian boiled merino wool, 100% cashmere finished wool, and heavyweight linen and cotton, we stand by our intention of honouring classical silhouettes to create pieces that will carry through each season. 

To nurture your Affaires bag and ensure a long life, we recommend the following care:

Affaires Wool

We suggest hand-washing your Affaires wool bag in cold water using a small amount of natural, unscented detergent or powder. Please avoid the use of fabric softeners.

After submerging your bag in the water, gently rub any deep stains, and remove swiftly. 

To dry, roll your bag in a clean towel to absorb excess water before laying flat to dry in the shade, away from direct sunlight.

To limit pilling, avoid heavy abrasion to your bag. Please remove by hand, avoiding the use of electric fabric shavers. 

Affaires Linen

Your Affaires linen bag can be machine washed in cold water, on a delicate cycle with low spin. We suggest using a small amount of a natural, unscented detergent or powder to limit dye fading.

Hand-washing is always recommended as a preference, with a small amount of detergent, followed by gentle hand-rinses. 

To dry, we suggest laying your bag flat in the shade, away from direct sunlight. Please do not tumble dry your bag.
