How do I look after my alma chain?
alma chains are built to hold your sunnies, but they're delicate creatures, so please don’t expect them to hold anything too heavy!
Keep them away from fabrics that may catch or pull and try to keep them dry whenever possible. Wipe them down with a wet cloth if dirty, then dry them quickly.
The rubber ends allow for you to move your chain on and off as you please, but don’t forget to slide the metal coil down the rubber to widen the hole, before pulling them off your glasses.
Keep in mind the rubber can be overstretched and may snap if used on super-mega-maxi-wide arms.
The chain may fade or change colour over time, but that just gives them character and makes them a little grungy. We like that.
