1. What is Berk Cross?

Berk Cross is a material that taps the wooden skin from the Mutuba tree and stretches it like a cloth.

After peeling the wooden skin, if you do it properly, a sturdy skin will be played on the surface of the tree about a year later. This is why Uganda has been made for nearly 1000 years. It is also called "the oldest fabric of mankind", and is also registered as a World Intangible heritage, based on the work and craftsmanship technology that has been cultivated for many years.

The natural color of this Berk Cross and the rough texture feel like a leather suede, so I feel the possibility that it can be an alternative to leather.

2. How to clean

Berk cross using such natural materials. Because it is a material that is not familiar, you are worried about how to care.


① Before starting to use

We recommend that you spray cloth for cloth before using the product. You can also prevent dirt on the surface.


② If you start using it

If you have a little dirt, brush it with the same brush for leather products. Please note that rubbing strongly will hurt the surface. Also, add shea butter and leather cream on a dedicated cloth and apply lightly to get a gloss.


If you keep using it, it will gradually become softer, so it is recommended that you put anko inside to keep the bag shape when storing. Also, in a place that does not hit the sun as much as possible.


③ Precautions for handling

Please refrain from using it on rainy days for natural materials. Also, if it gets wet,In a well -ventilated place that does not hit the sunPlease dry it.
