PRODUCT CARE

Hi,

Thank you for purchasing me. We are going to have a great time together. I’m here to stay with you for as long as you will have me. But before we embark on our adventures, this is how you can take care of me.

 

By now I’m sure you are aware that I am 100% handmade by artisans in our weaving community in Bolga, Ghana. My friends and I have travelled a long way to you. Each one of us took about 3-5 days to make. So please handle us with love and care.

I like water but please do not leave me to drown in it. I will get mold if you leave me in a moist state or environment.

I like going to the beach and don’t mind heat but please keep me away from fire and flames. My colors might fade a bit if you leave me for a very long period in the sun.

We are all made from sturdy elephant grass. But you can squeeze us into your suitcase or storage space. Whenever you need me again this is how you can reshape me.

 

1. Generously spray every part of me (except my hands, especially if they are made from leather) with lukewarm water. For my larger friends, you can dip them in a tub or a bath of water long enough for the straws to absorb moisture.

2. Once wet, let me rest for a few minutes.

3. Place me on a hard surface and mould me from the inside into the shape I was when you first swiped on me. Don’t worry about pushing or pulling too hard. I’m soft but strong. Take your time and just keep going until you’re satisfied with the way I look.

4. Leave me to dry in a well-ventilated place or outside. 

5. You can dip or spray me with water anytime I’m out of shape.  

 

Please take care of me as you would with your valuable belongings that would you place inside me.

Let’s have an amazing time together!
