Care instructions

At Off/grid, we make it a point to create furniture that is made to last.
By following a few simple maintenance procedures, you can keep the shine and quality of our products for years to come.

One of the best ways to keep Off/Grid fabrics looking good is to clean dirt as quickly as possible before it becomes embedded in the fabric. The faster you clean spills and stains, the easier they can be removed.

To remain a stain :

  • Blot (don’t rub) liquid spills with a clean, dry cloth. For oil-based spills, apply an absorbent such as corn starch, then remove with a straight edge.
  • Spray on a mild cleaning solution of soap (such as Dawn or Woolite) and water.
  • Rinse the fabric thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
  • Air dry.

For regular washing:

  • Hand Washing
    Soak fabric in a solution of 20 ml of mild soap per liter of lukewarm water. Use a sponge or very soft bristle brush to lightly agitate the stain. Then rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue, and allow fabric to air dry.
  • Machine Washing
    Machine wash in cold water on the delicate cycle with normal amounts of mild laundry detergent. Allow fabric to air dry.

If fabric has some wrinkling, use an iron on the synthetic setting. As iron temperatures may vary, first test a small inconspicuous area before ironing the entire piece.

Natural vegetable tanned leather is particularly lively. It develops a patina depending on your use, your environment and sometimes requires little maintenance. If the leather shows signs of dryness or tarnish, follow the steps below:


  1. If the leather is dirty, clean it with a damp sponge and glycerine soap, then dry it with a cloth.
  2. If the leather is clean, rub the area to be maintained with a clean cloth to remove all impurities and warm the leather a little.
  3. Use a soft, preferably natural bristle brush and a neutral wax formulated for natural vegetable tanned leather. Brush the leather in a circular motion.
  4. Then use a cotton pad to rub in the remaining wax, while wiping off any excess from the surface.
  5. Leave the leather to air dry in a dry place.

Off/Grid oak furniture is protected from external attack by a polyurethane varnish. This finish allows the wood to withstand moderate outdoor exposure. We therefore recommend that you shelter your furniture as much as possible from the weather. If exposed to rainfall, treated oak furniture needs a full drying cycle before being exposed to further potential attack.

Although treated to last, the protective coating applied to Off/Grid oak furniture may need to be replenished after prolonged exposure to external attack. In this case, follow our recommendations below:

  1. Ensure that the wood has been allowed to dry for at least 48 hours in a dry place.
  2. Use a 180-grit sanding sponge and sand the structure to a smooth surface.
  3. Apply a transparent polyurethane matt varnish with a brush, then leave to dry for a day in a dry place.
  4. Sand the structure again.
  5. Apply a new coat of polyurethane matt clear lacquer.
  6. Leave to dry for one day in a dry place.

The iroko is an exotic, durable wood that does not require preservative treatment and is perfectly suited to outdoor living. Daily cleaning can be done with a soft cloth moistened with water and pH neutral liquid soap. It is recommended to apply linen or teak oil once a year to preserve the original colour of the Iroko as long as possible. Over the years, the iroko will develop a graceful patina and greying.
