MANUFACTURING and POSTAL DAMAGE
If your item arrives damaged, please contact us immediately.
Sustainability and protectors
Since we use sustainable and cruelty-free non-leather materials, the products we create and send are accompanied by the "Product Care" instructions enclosed by each of your purchases.
Please keep these instructions for reference, but a good rule for protecting these materials is to wipe with a damp cloth to remove any dirt gently.
Please contact us if you require a refresher on your particular item's care instructions.
