*Avoid snagging:* Be cautious of sharp objects or rough surfaces that could snag the yarn. Keep your knitted bag away from Velcro closures or jewellery that could catch on the fibers.

*Pilling:* Pilling is common with knitted items. You can gently remove pills with a fabric shaver or a sweater comb to keep the bag looking neat.

*Avoid stretching:* Be gentle with your knitted bag to prevent stretching out the stitches. Avoid overloading the bag with heavy items that could distort its shape.

*Cleaning:* Spot clean any stains promptly with a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could damage the fibers.

*Hand-washing:* It is usually best to hand-wash knitted items to prevent damage. Use a mild detergent or wool wash and lukewarm water. Gently swish the bag in the water, then rinse it thoroughly. Avoid gold plating.

*Drying:* After washing, gently squeeze out excess water from the bag without wringing or twisting it. Allow it to air dry away from direct heat and sunlight.

The concept was built around two fundamentals - a passion for retail & combining premium materials with an unwavering commitment to quality.

Since then, PORTER has grown into almost anything you can throw over your shoulder. From your everyday shopper to your night out evening bag.
