We're passionate about using rich organic dyes and natural materials. Please take care around lighter items as color may rub off with moisture and prolonged use. When washing your Vine Street Market bag you may choose to scotch guard before use and spot clean. Vine Street Market bags are machine washable but shrinkage and fading will occur as with any natural fabrics and dyes. Over time your Vine Street Market bag will wear like your favorite jeans. The print's surface will gradually fade with use, personalizing the bag to the way you wear it. The longer it's with you, the more chic it looks.
