Care & Repair


HOMEWARE

CARING FOR YOUR HOME ACCESSORIES

Each Studio Kittuco home accessory is handcrafted from Jesmonite, a non-toxic water-based acrylic resin material and sealed with natural beeswax or acrylic sealer for waterproofing.
Due to the nature of the material, air bubbles, pores and surface imperfections are considered as unique features of this handmade item.
Each purchase of Kittuco homeware item comes with an extra jar of natural beeswax for waterproofing. Using a soft clean cloth, apply a small amount of beeswax directly onto the item in small circular motion. Leave to dry for 15 minutes. Recoat every six months or as needed.
To clean your handmade item, gently wipe down with a soapy cloth.
Do not submerge in water. Not dishwasher or microwave safe. Handle with care to avoid damage.

JEWELLERY

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PAIR
All Studio Kittuco pieces are handcrafted using polymer clay. It is lightweight and most times durable but just like your heart, it may still break when it gets tossed or trampled on. Kittuco jewellery (and your heart) should always be treated gently and with care. When not in use, store your jewellery in a clean, dry place away from direct sunlight and other sharp objects.

Avoid getting aerosol sprays, perfumes, nail polish, or chlorinated water on your jewellery, as this may discolour or deteriorate the finish. Be wary of clothing with non-colourfast dyes to avoid staining your jewellery.

To clean your jewellery, gently buff the surface with a soft jewellery cloth.
REPAIR
A very strong glue is used to mount stud posts onto the earrings. However, we've noticed that with time, some of the bond loses its strength, much like college friends after graduation. If you find yourself in this situation, fret not, we're able to fix them. Just drop us an email at hello[at]kittuco.com and we'll take it from there.
Please note that we are only able to repair earrings, not friendships.
