  How can I pay? We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover and payments via PayPal. Once you choose the articles you wish to purchase you will automatically be taken through a Secure Gateway for processing of your credit card or PayPal payment.

  Why wasn't my payment accepted?  Our Secure Gateway has the last word on accepting or declining payments. Most common reason for a payment not to be accepted is that the billing address entered doesn't match the billing address of the card being used, carefully check the Zip Code. The billing address should be entered exactly as it is shown on your card statement. Don't worry about wanting to ship to a different address than the billing address, as you can specify a different shipping address for your satchel to be delivered to.

Before you do so we suggest  tracking your shipment by visiting  At the time of shipment we will send you a tracking number.  Tracking information will show the history of transit from the time shipping label is made.  If the history shows Customs Clearance it means the package is at your local customs office and there is nothing we can do. If this is the case you will have to wait for your local customs office to release the package.  If they deem it necessary for you to pay customs they will contact you for payment.  If the package transit history does not show this and has taken longer than expected please email us at

   What if I am not in when the bag arrives?  USPS delivers locally by utilizing your local post office.  Local postal companies work in different manners.  The most common of which is leaving a note in your mailbox with redelivery attempt date and/or a phone number of your local post office for you to call for redelivery at a better time or pick up at your local post office.  If for any reason the package is returned to us, when we have provided postal service the same address provided by the buyer, the cost of shipping will be deducted from any refunds.

  Can my order be sent to a PO box? Unfortunately we cannot deliver to PO boxes.

  What size bag should I get?  Please visit our size guide to help you decide which size satchel is best for you.

  How long will my bag last?  If treated correctly, there is no reason your bag shouldn't last a lifetime.

  Is my bag waterproof?  As leather is a natural material and will absorb water, none of our bags are waterproof. If your bag does get wet then dry off any surface water as soon as you get home and allow to dry naturally. If your bag should get wet then please let it dry naturally and do not apply direct heat.  Please ensure that the bag is completely dry before using it again to avoid damaging the surface of the leather.  Getting your bag very wet may cause the leather to swell which can discolor or damage the surface of the leather.  Clean any light stains with a damp cloth and do not use any detergents.

  I've seen a satchel bag that I really like but it's no longer on your website. Is there a way I can still buy it?  Of course we can never guarantee that a bag we no longer have for sale will be available, but we will always do our best to help. Please email us at to let us know which bag you would like. If we have the leather available then we will do our best to complete your order.

If you choose to have a handle on your bag then we will also make the strap detachable.

  Will my bag look like the picture?  Whilst every effort is made to ensure the leather we source matches the images on our web site, please be aware that in some cases due to leather being a natural product there may be some variation in shade and texture.
