AVARCAS PRODUCT CARE

CARING FOR YOUR CASTELL MENORCAN SANDALS & AVARCAS

Castell Australia Sandals are handmade from real leather and finest materials. Therefore, please see below some instructions on how keep them new, so you can love them forever:

LEATHER

PROTECTION

  • Spray a water & stain protector evenly, using consistent sweeping motions to ensure an even coverage.
  • Periodically re-protect and re-spray your sandals to resist daily soiling.
  • Carefully read the instructions on the protector before applying.

CLEANING

  • To remove dirt, wipe gently with a dry cloth to remove any dried-on dirt and dust.
  • Then dampen the cloth with warm water and wipe again.
  • Allow leather to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight and direct heat sources, that can dry out the leather.
  • Use a high quality cream polish that matches the shoe colour, carefully read the instructions before applying, then buff to shine.
  • Avoid liquid shoe polishes and silicone sprays.

NUBUK

PROTECTION

  • Spray a water & stain protector evenly, using consistent sweeping motions to ensure an even coverage.
  • Periodically re-protect and re-spray your El Raco’s to resist daily soiling.
  • Carefully read the instructions on the protector before applying.

CLEANING

  • To clean use a rubber eraser to remove dirt and smudges. Brush lightly with a soft brush.
  • Care should be taken to brush in the same direction. If you brush in different directions, some suede will give the appearance of being 2 different colours.
  • Avoid wire brushes.
  • Follow up with a resistance spray for suede and nubuck.
  • Carefully read instructions on the resistance spray before applying.

METALLIC

PROTECTION

  • We don’t recommend using standard water proofer, but a specific neutral metallic protector and cleaner to keep these styles shining brightly.

CLEANING

  • Use a soft damp cloth to remove dirt and dust.
  • Use a renovating polish for metallic leather, carefully read instructions before applying.

GLITTER

The Glitter Castell’s are very delicate and some loss of glitter is to be expected during wear. They shouldn't be exposed to water as loss of glitter will occur.

FABRIC

PROTECTION

  • We recommend you apply a water protector for fabric sandals.
  • Carefully read instructions before applying.

CLEANING

  • Use a dry cloth, gently wipe dirt and dust.
  • Lightly dampen a cloth with cold water, and blot the stain, and work your way down the grain of the fabric. Making sure you dab rather than rub the fabric.
  • Dry with a dry cloth, lightly dabbing to spot dry. Do not rub the fabric.
