How to Clean Canvas Espadrilles

Don’t throw your espadrilles in the laundry!

 You can toss some shoes in the washing machine to clean, but espadrilles are not one of them. Since the soles of these shoes are wrapped in jute, which can unravel during the spin cycle, you need to clean canvas espadrilles by hand. Most espadrilles are made of canvas and you can clean them with water and a mild detergent. You can also clean the jute rope of the shoe in the same manner. Our canvas espadrilles have an inner leather sole which we will also show you how to clean and remove any odors from as well.
