05 What is the patch-like “pig nose” on the backpack? There is a decoration on the backpack that looks like a “pig nose” patch, which is not a brand logo, nor is it a general decoration. It was originally attached to the backpack for mountaineering. Because the ice-breaker used for mountaineering was too large to fit in the backpack, it was fixed with a wire through the “pig nose” patch and then taken away.

When cleaning, please remove all the detachable parts, wash the part with neutral detergent or put the whole in water and press wash, and then dehydrate. The backpack must be dehydrated and placed in a ventilated and cool place to dry. It should usually be stored in a well-ventilated area and not exposed to sunlight.

The longer the natural leather is used, the firmer it will become, and the unique texture of the leather will appear, making it more “tasteful”, so there is no need to forcefully clean the leather.
