Nature of Handmade Products -

All of our products are handmade. There may be slight variations in individual products due to the inconsistent nature of leather, or the use of other materials, including upcycled materials. Any traces of the human hand, or of the organic origins of the materials, are not defects in the product, but are of the essence of production by hand.

The production time is dependant on the order quantity. Each and every item is handmade by us in our Brunswick studio. Though your order will likely be produced sooner, please allow a manufacturing period of 1–2 weeks for accessories, and up to 2–4 weeks for footwear. Your order will be made as quickly as possible, without  compromise on our production standards.

Any cancellation outside of this time will incur a cancellation fee of 40% of the value of the order if work has already commenced.

Please inspect all orders immediately upon arrival. Please contact us at within five days of receipt of damaged or defective stock.
