Maintaining a trunk

For a trunk covered with coated canvas, the ideal is to use a colorless wax on the covering and the leather parts and to wait 24 hours for drying. Following this step, you just need to polish the canvas using a soft cloth. The jewelry can be cleaned using specific products for the shine of brass.
