Care

Just like any other material (but better obviously) The Ahimsa Collective's materials need some love and care as well. Below are a few tips and tricks on keeping your new The Ahimsa Collective item looking as chic A.F. as the first day it wrapped around your arm.

DAY-TO-DAY WEAR

As Piñatex is a natural material, it will wear and age based on how you use it, becoming your own unique item.

To help reduce any unwanted wear, keep your item in its cloth bag whenever it's not slung over your arm. Its best to keep it in a nice spot out of direct sun and away from water/moisture and perfumes.

EVER AFTER

Ongoing treatment of your Piñatex item is highly recommended, based on how often you use it will depend on how often you need to wax it.

A good sign is when you see the natural fibres of Piñatex showing, give them a good wax down. This is a natural effect of the Piñatex material so don't be alarmed - your item is still as strong as the first day you wrapped it in your arms.

If you have a black Piñatex item, then this will likely be more obvious than the metallic Piñatex products. Our metallic items are slightly different so there is no need to wax them.

The Ahimsa Collective treat their own products with an eco-friendly boot polish. Using small spot treatments on only those areas that need it. You might also like to apply a small [and we mean small] amount of PawPaw cream to the handles, every now and then, to keep them looking fresh.

Remember, Piñatex is a plant - so it needs to be treated like your indoor plant friends.

The team at The Ahimsa Collectiveare part of a new generation of change agents. In their own words, their products are “for those who are trendy AF but also don’t want the world to blow up”.
