item care & warranty
caring for handbags & small goods
keep your favorite kate spade new york handbag in tip-top condition with the right care.
a damp cloth and mild soap such as ivory soap or woolite should work to remove most dirt and stains simply by wiping. once the dirt has been lifted, be sure to wipe down the entire bag quickly in order to avoid getting water spots on the fabric. never immerse your fabric handbag in water since it will delaminate the inner lining, causing it to pucker. leather trim can also erode when immersed in water.
each fabric used in the design of kate spade new york handbags is carefully selected for its color, texture, durability, and beauty. please treat these fabrics with care to extend the life of your bag. we recommend warm water and mild soap on a clean cloth for removing most common stains. please be certain to thoroughly test an inconspicuous area prior to actual stain removal to avoid uncontrollable variations in material reaction. evening bags should be treated with extra special care as delicate fabrics should only be cleaned by dry cleaning specialists. never immerse your fabric handbag in water since it will delaminate the inner lining causing it to pucker. leather trim can also erode when immersed in water.
our fabric and straw handbags are considered seasonal and do tend to wear more quickly. please refer to the care tag enclosed to help you keep it in tip-top condition. we suggest stowing your handbag away from direct sunlight and heat, stuffed with tissue and stored in its dust bag when not in use. try to avoid crowding your handbag when it is in storage to help maintain its shape, and to prevent delicate straws from breaking.
the leather used in the design of kate spade new york handbags is specially chosen from the finest tanneries in italy and asia. most of our leathers have been treated and are water and scratch resistant. should your handbag become wet, wipe gently dry with a soft cloth. for regular cleaning, a damp cloth and mild leather cream may be applied.
Caring for Shoes
keep your kate spade new york shoes looking new with these care instructions.
always store your footwear away from light and heat and protect them from rain and humidity.
depending on the type of leather, specific sprays or creams can be used but we do not recommend any particular brands. customers should consult a local shoe repair shop or technician. however, for most leathers wiping (without undue pressure) with a dry cloth is sufficient.
suede requires specific sprays to clean and project a soft (suede) brush is enough to eliminate dust or dirt.

when the battery expires, replace it as soon as possible to prevent any malfunction. in order to maintain the original pressure for water resistance, it is recommended that you do not attempt to change the watch battery yourself. doing so may reduce your water resistance and void your warranty. going to an unauthorized watch dealer may also void your warranty if changes are made. it is recommended to have your battery changed by metro service center.
