OUR STORY At Pixie Mood, we love animals. We made it our top priority to create products without harming any furry friends. We strive to find fun and fashionable alternatives to leather and fur, making it easier for us all to make a compassionate choice while still looking fabulous. There is always room for fashion with compassion! Founded in 2011 Pixie Mood continues to find the most socially responsible way to look good while feeling great. We believe it is our responsibility to take into consideration the future of our planet when designing/developing our products. We are committed to sustainability and source the most innovative, and eco-friendly materials. CRUELTY FREE VEGAN LEATHER PU leather stands for Polyurethane leather, which is different from lower grade synthetic leathers such as vinyl or PVC our products are all 100% Vegan and aren’t PU “coated” leather. PU Leather is generally just a layer or two of PU with a non-woven background. It is lighter and more breathable than PVC leather. It works well in colder climates and is more elastic than PVC. We are always on the hunt for new and innovative materials to be used in our designs.

PRODUCT CARE How to take care of POLYURETHANE bags? Our bags that are made with polyurethane or ‘vegan-leather’ are very durable, and unlike real leather, they are waterproof. The best way to care for your purse is to be gentle and treat it like your other purses. When not in use, properly store it away in a cool and dry place. To clean any dirty areas, use some warm, mild, soapy water and a cloth to gently spot clean. You may also use Goo Gone or some rubbing alcohol to spot clean areas that may be more difficult to remove than others, and allow it to air dry. If there are any wrinkles or light creasing, we do not recommend applying any sort of heat, as that will damage the bag. We recommend stuffing the bag and letting it sit for a few days, as that will usually smooth out the wrinkles or creases. How to take care of CORK bags? Our bags that are made with cork are very durable, but they are not waterproof, they are weather-proof. So they can endure splashes of rain, some snow and so on. If some rain or snow gets on the cork, we recommend wiping or drying those areas as early as possible, and allow it to air dry. The best way to care for your cork purse is to be gentle and care for it like your other purses. When not in use, properly store it away in a cool and dry place, preferably in a dust bag. To clean any dirty areas, use some warm, mild, soapy water and a cloth to gently spot clean. You may also use some Goo Gone, a bit of rubbing alcohol, or a Lysol wipe to remove the more difficult blemishes, and allow it to air dry. How to take care of FAUX SUEDE material? For the faux suede material parts, we do not recommend using any water as that will ruin the bag. We suggest using a bit of rubbing alcohol and a cloth, and rub the affected areas as needed until the stains are gone. Afterwards, lay the bag flat and allow the material to air dry. While drying, the faux suede material may become a bit stiff, so you can use a toothbrush or a soft brush and gently brush the material dry. Strong smell coming from bag? The smell coming from the bag is sometimes caused by the process of producing the bag or from the time it spent in the shipment when it was being shipped. To get rid of the smell safely, we recommend placing a dryer sheet inside the purse to absorb any odors and leave it for a few days. Alternatively, they could also air out the purse outside for a few days. We don’t recommend spraying too much Febreeze or other sprays inside or outside the bag, as they ruin the purse. SOCIAL IMPACT At Pixie Mood, we believe that every bit of help makes a difference. Some of the charities we’ve worked with over the past few years.
