How do I clean my Modalu bag?
If you have a build up of dust or surface dirt on your Modalu handbag or purse, simply wipe the bag with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Don't wash it with water or any other chemical; just gently wipe it off. If you spill something on your Modalu handbag or purse, wipe up any excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge. If needed, wipe down the bag with clean lukewarm water and let the leather air dry. We recommend you don’t use leather creams on Modalu products as it may cause colour discolouration in the leather due to the cream containing heavy chemicals. It is best to keep any leather out of direct heat and sunlight to protect the skin and preventing it drying out which may cause discolouration and could make the leather stiff.
How to wear the Pippa bag
The Pippa bag comes with handles that are the perfect length to be worn on your shoulder, or held as a grab bag. Certain Pippa bags come with a detachable shoulder
strap and this can be attached diagonally across the bag using the circular rings at the bottom of the handles.
How do you pronounce Modalu?
Modalu is pronounced Mo-Der-Lu.

How do I spot a counterfeit Modalu bag?
We try very hard to ensure that our original designs are protected from counterfeit copies. The safest way to ensure that you are buying a genuine Modalu handbag or purse is to buy it though our official website www.modalu.com or through one of our approved stockists.
