As we offer a variety of fabric offerings for our custom upholstery collection, please reference the cleaning + care instructions found on the back of your fabric sample. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our team!
Although we are heavy on performance fabrics, we do offer a few non-performance linen and twills. We highly recommend sourcing a fabric protector to keep your custom SS in it’s best shape! We’ve used Forcefield Fabric Protector with success and it makes basic linens + twills liquid resistant. With that said, we highly recommend testing the protector on a small portion of your piece as we cannot advise as to how it will react to all fabric offerings.
Although our raffia is coated with a protective finish, it’s a good idea to be mindful of the material. Like any natural material, similar to fabric, grasscloth can be subject to fading/discoloration when exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Water and other liquids can also cause damage. We recommend sourcing a UV glass top to keep your grasscloth in its best shape over time! Grasscloth is a natural and handmade product and variations in color and texture are standard. These variations are not defects but are what add to the character of the material.
Regarding spills, like any wood or natural material, the finish can be damaged when spills are not wiped up in a timely manner. Do not leave sitting liquids! Do not use harsh chemicals to clean this piece! Simply use a damp washcloth and mild dish soap, like Dawn, to clean.
As an environmentally friendly brand, we’ve intentionally chosen water-based painted finishes vs lacquered, oil-based finishes. Although lacquered finishes are known to be more durable, they are not only much more costly but also highly toxic and bad for the environment. Choosing water-based finishes is also what allows us to offer a wide range of colors while keeping prices accessible for what is traditionally a very high end category. Our painted pieces are given two coats of VOC free, non-toxic, exterior and furniture grade paint. With that said, painted furniture is not indestructible— accidents can happen in transit and at home with you. A bottle of touch-up is sent out with each order to keep your piece looking fresh and at its best!

We handcraft our bar carts one at a time for their end use— entertaining! Due to the function of the piece, we take great care in finishing each bar cart with a protective top coat to safeguard against liquid spills which if wiped up in a timely manner will not stain. With that said, like any wood or natural material, this piece can be subject to water damage if exposed to moisture for an extended period of time. Our bar carts are for indoor use only.
