Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What's the nut on the handbags for?
A: Hardwear By Renee is nuts about hardware! That’s why every Hardwear bag is finished off with a signature steel nut.
Q: How do I clean my Hardwear bag?
A: Most of the time soap and water with a bit of elbow grease will do the trick. Goo Gone (found at most stores) is a powerful cleaner too. If you have a really stubborn stain try a marine vinyl cleaner.
Q: Where are the Hardwear handbags made?
A: All products are handcrafted in the USA and manufactured in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
