Your card account will be debited by our secure server on notification of receipt of order and is out of our control.
For orders telephoned or emailed to us with your Credit Card details the same method as above will be used at the time of despatch rather than the time of order.

Please note: Fabric patterns, colours and sizes may vary slightly due to the individual and handmade nature of our unique bags.

There is a message section at checkout for personal messages to the recipient of an order but this may also be used to inform us of a required delivery date for a birthday or other special occasion or delivery instructions.
There will be an automatic email confirmation upon our receipt of an order but no others will follow as we are a small business, if you wish to know the progress of an order then please do email or telephone.

Please ensure that we are advised prior to your returning any items. All goods should be packed appropriately and insured against loss or damage.
No refunds, credit notes or exchanges can be made, where goods do not reach us, or are returned in an unacceptable condition.
Please ensure that the package is clearly marked with your name and address and that the original Receipt/Invoice is enclosed.
