FAQs

Q: Where does the name “Po Campo” come from?

A: Po Campo is a minor character in Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove, one of Maria’s favorite books. She was drawn to the character because of his adventurous spirit, self-reliance and confidence to do things his own way while maintaining a child-like curiosity with the wonders of the everyday. Plus, it’s fun to say!

Q: My bag got grease/dirt/mud/coffee/hot sauce/ink on it – how should I clean it?

A: No worries, we designed our bags to be able to take some abuse! Just apply a dab of dish soap onto the stain and gently rub it with a damp towel or old toothbrush. You can also use a damp Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on 2013 and later printed fabrics. All of our fabrics are nonabsorbent so with a little diligence, it will come clean.

*Note: Some Po Campo bags produced from 2009-2011 were made of treated acrylic outdoor upholstery fabric. While also water repellent, the color can fade if scrubbed too vigorously, so please be gentle.
