General Information
All of our items are designed and handmade by us, in our own workshop. As the makers of original designs, we are aware of the imperfections that might come along the way. We work to achieve the highest standards, however if for any reason, you are not happy with the product you receive from us, please, let us know in writing and we will inform you on how to return or exchange your item.
Please, note, we work mostly with leather and a small proportion of vintage fabrics. Leather, as an organic fabric might have slight color or texture changes or imperfections. We are highly selective of the leather we finally work with, however imperfections we consider up to a natural state, will be used.
