Care Guide

Each pair of Done by Matea shoes comes with a card detailing the materials used. Please see the list below for information on caring for your shoes, and ensuring their longest life possible.

 

Puffy Heels
Upper: 100% Natural Mulberry Silk lined with leather, pre-sealed with Scotchgard. I advise that you re-apply Scotchgard to the silk depending how often you wear them. They should be kept away from moisture as this may cause marks on the silk. To clean, wipe gently with a damp cloth and dry immediately. The silk upper may be able to be dry cleaned, consult your local cleaner for more info.

Soles: 

with significant wear, the leather soles or heel rubber may need to be replaced. Please get in touch sooner rather than later with resoling concerns. 

 

Not Paper Heels + Kelp Slides
Upper: Vegetable Tanned Leather. Comes lightly sealed, and does not require conditioning. However they should be kept away from moisture as this may cause the organic leather shapes to deform. To clean, wipe gently with a damp cloth and dry immediately.

Soles: With significant wear, soles may need to be replaced. Please get in touch sooner rather than later with resoling concerns.

 

Sludge Sandals
Upper: Vegetable Tanned Leather with custom textured finish. To clean the textured finish, wipe gently with a damp cloth and let air dry. Avoid getting moisture on the leather parts of the upper and insole, as this may cause water staining.
