HOW TO UPCYCLE YOUR CANDLE VESSELS
First things first, you'll want to carefully remove the existing wax from your container using one of four methods: freezing, washing, boiling, or baking.
OPTION 1- Freezing Candle Wax:
Place your candle jars in the freezer for a few hours. This allows the wax to harden and should make it easier to use a spoon to pick out the contents. You can clean any remaining wax or residue with a warm, wet paper towel. Although this is probably the simplest method, it works better with harder waxes.
OPTION 2 - Washing Your Candle Container:
First, clean as much of the wax out of the container as you can with a spoon. Use hot water and soap to clean the residue. This works best for softer and more natural waxes like our 100% soy wax. We recommend using paper towels for easy cleanup. This method probably takes the most time, and you want to be careful not to get any wax down your pipes.
OPTION 3 - Double Boiler Method:
Simply place your candle container in a pot of boiling water to soften the wax from all sides. Once the wax has softened, carefully take the jar out and pour out the remaining liquid wax. Wipe clean with paper towels or cloth. This is our preferred method - just be careful to not burn your fingers
OPTION 4 - Oven Method:
- Don't overheat the glass
- Do not put any solid or liquid wax down the sink as this will clog your drains
- Do not use a microwave as our wicks are set with a metal clip at the bottom and can cause a fire
- Careful not to break the glass
Our leather products are all handmade of genuine leather. No two are exactly alike, but all are made carefully and with durability in mind. The leather may color with time to a beautiful patina. Spot clean leather with a moist cloth.
Does the leather change with time?
Our 100% full grain leather is tanned and imbued with natural waxes and oils, and the surface is not sprayed with a synthetic sealant, allowing it to develop a beautiful patina over time and use. Your favorite everyday carries will be able to tell tales of its adventures all by itself. That's the true beauty of leather. For best long term care, it’s recommended to use a quality leather conditioner.
How are our items different from other leather items?
The 100% full grain leather used in our items is made in a traditional style dating back to 1905. We love real, old style leather. Our items embody the adventurous spirit, so that you can put a little bit of your personality into your everyday carry. This comes at a price point that is substantially lower than most of our competitors in the high quality leather goods market. Affordable and durable. We work very hard to be able to say that.
Will the leather scratch?
Short answer, yes. Designed with 100% full grain leather that will scuff and mark with use. If you always want a (fake) perfect finish, this is not the item for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina that tells a story all in and of itself, this is absolutely the item for you.
CUSTOM HAT SIZING
To take your head measurement, place the string or tape around your head around where the hat will sit. This should roughly be about 1/8" above your ear, across the mid-forehead, and completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. All of our hats and caps come sized and you can use this size guide to make your order.
