Care & Washing Instructions

Washing - White.png

  • Always carry your Totem backpack using both shoulder straps. This will prevent future back problems. A backpack carried on one shoulder will load the spine unevenly which can lead to distorted posture and back problems.
  • Check your Totem bag hangtag for maximum weight of contents.
  • Prevent zipper problems: Do not overstuff the compartments of your bag. Be careful not to catch anything in the zipper.
  • Always stand Totem bags on the base in order to maintain the condition of the fabric and prevent wear and tear.
  • Place your bag on the ground, do not throw.
  •  Do not place sharp unprotected items in your Totem bag, as they may pierce through the fabric.
  • Be careful not to smash the buckles in the car door or boot.
  • Do not leave your bag standing in direct extreme sun for long periods of time as this could lead to colour fading.
  • All Totem products are manufactured using high quality fabric. The products are coated with a PU finish that helps repel dirt.
  • Wash your Totem bags and pencil cases with a mild detergent using a soft sponge.
  • Rinse with cool water and dry out of the sunlight.
