About

Forestbound uses exclusively found and salvaged materials to create durable, utilitarian tote bags. Great effort is put into hunting for well-worn historic textiles and hardware throughout New England. Much time and care is spent working with these unique materials to make every Forestbound bag one of a kind.

-----------------------------

PRICING POLICY - When pricing my items I take into account the quality, condition, and uniqueness of the materials used. All of the textiles and hardware that I use come from days of olde and have been uncovered by my own two hands - much time and effort is put into both seeking out these materials as well as processing them. Also, those bags that incorporate leather will always be a bit more expensive than those without. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

REPAIR POLICY - Working with vintage fabrics and leather is always a bit unpredictable. I try my best to select materials that will stand the test of time but I can never be 100% sure. Because of this -- if at any point in time something (structurally) happens to an item you have purchased from me I will do my best to repair it for you.. free of charge. For more information please get in contact with me.

SHIPPING POLICY - All items will be shipped within 2 business days of purchase - both domestically and internationally. If you need something immediately send me a conversation. All domestic items are sent via USPS Priority mail. International items are sent first class USPS.

RETURN POLICY - I accept returns of unused items within one week of you receiving it in the mail. There will also be a small restocking fee which varies depending on the original price of the item (between $5-$10).


At this time I am not accepting custom orders.

I also do not accept reserves on items.
