Product Care

METAL

 • Our fine metal is handcrafted from 100% recycled aluminum. Slight “imperfections” and cooling marks are the hallmark of handmade goods. 

• Occasional use of a non-abrasive metal polish will revive luster. We recommend Simichrome polish which is available from Mariposa or at a local hardware store.

SERVEWARE

• All products are food-safe and will not tarnish. 

• Handwash in warm water with mild soap and towel-dry immediately. 

• Do not place in the dishwasher or microwave.

• Coat lightly with vegetable oil or spray to avoid staining. Avoid extended contact with water and acid-based foods.

• Cutting directly on the metal surface will scratch the finish. 

• Warm to 350˚ for hot foods. Freeze or chill for summer entertaining.
**Not recommended for enamel pieces

LEATHER

As a natural material, fine leather has unique characteristics and qualities. Mariposa carefully selects the highest quality to achieve consistencies. If, over the course of use, small scratches occur, simply rub with your fingertip, as natural oils in your skin help to gently eliminate them. To remove dirt, grime, or surface residue, use a soft, damp (not wet) cloth and gently clean.

FAUX TEXTURAL FINISHES

Use a soft damp (not wet) cloth with a warm mild soap solution to remove ordinary dirt and smudges. For more difficult stains, use of a stronger detergent is recommended. Try an inconspicuous spot before attempting the entire piece. Always wipe the surface well after applying a detergent. Do not clean with steel wool or powdered abrasive cleaners or hard plastic scrubbers. Do not soak in water.

LINEN

Use a dry cloth to remove any dust. Do not scrub linen or use harsh chemicals Metal Icon is handcrafted from 100% recycled aluminum and will not tarnish.

in color, bubbles, cooling or pontil marks are signatures of the
artistic process.

on all Mariposa glass. 

ITALIAN BELLINI GLASS

• Bellini’s effervescent look is a result of bicarbonate of soda exploding in the glass, while being individually handblown. In rare cases, slight ripples might appear at the rim.
