Announcement   There’s only one essential thing you need to know about us: we are wholeheartedly in love with what we do. We put a great deal of attention into selecting the finest materials, gathering leather hides from world famous tanneries.
Trivial details, such as thread thickness, texture and color are everything to us. Each product is designed and crafted with the utmost attention to detail. While some would think that looks are everything, our leather goods are also endowed with highly functional designs. We create every product entirely by hand in our shop in Prague.
We employ traditional leather working techniques to create timeless leather goods that will pass the test of time and wear. We believe that taking the time to focus on creating high quality, with your need at the center of our work, is what sets us apart from the mass of huge names.
Sustainable fashion is the only fashion of the future, and by purchasing a bag that would last more than just a fashion trend, you are already protecting the Earth from the pollution that comes with the creation of fast-fashion items.
Thus, since we do not have the means of mass producing our products, each of our products comes with the promise of belonging to a limited edition. If that is not quite enough, we can design and create something absolutely unique, that would reflect your vision.

If you visit Prague, stop by to say hello in our shop at:
Belehradska 60, Vinohrady, 12000, Czech Republic.

Shipping
********************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: All the items (unless specified READY TO SHIP) are made upon purchase.
Dispatch date varies according to quantity and type of items, but for most products it is 1-4 working days.
SHIPPING TIME is NOT DELIVERY TIME!
Shipping time is the time it takes between the moment a order is placed and the said order is taken to the post office.
THEREFORE, if you need an item for a specific date, please contact me PRIOR to purchasing the item.
P.S. I advice purchasing shipping upgrade or shopping local if you are in a rush!
**************************************************************************************

Standard shipping:
All orders are sent via Czech Post - Tracked & signed.
I usually add the tracking number at the order board (to track your parcel go to 'Purchases and reviews', select the orders and it will show the tracking at 'Shipping' .
Sometimes we send the tracking number via Etsy conversation, if more than 2 days ave passed after the dispatch date.

ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIMES from Czech Post: (ESTIMATED! Please allow delays due to the post of the country you are buying from).
*Within the Czech Republic: Usually next day (but allow 1-2 extra days in busy times of the year)
*Europe: 5-15 WORKING days (again, allow a few extra days);
*Anywhere else: 15-20 WORKING days (again, allow a few extra days);

I allow the post office up to 1 week for domestic delivery, 4 weeks for EUROPE and 5 weeks for International delivery before re - sending/ refunding for non delivery.
MPORTANT NOTE: International buyers are responsible for any and all Customs Charges, Taxes & Additional Postal Fees.

-Orders are shipped to the address that you checked out with. If you would like to ship to a different address - please contact / convo the shop BEFORE your order was dispatched. Should you not do so, I am not responsible for shipping your item to a wrong address, nor would be refund if the parcel is lost/delivered to that address.

***If the address you are registered with is incomplete/ partially correct and the parcel is returned to me (it has happened a few times already) you will have to pay for the postage again, if you want me to send it again. As said above, I am not responsible for one's mistake and I will not pay for it.

OTHER SHIPPING INFORMATION:
For Tracked items:
If the package is declared "Delivered" - the package has been delivered. Please ask others in your home, neighbors, and postal carrier if they have seen the package. No refund shall be given.
If the package is declared "ARRIVED AT UNIT/ Delivered at the post office" - the package has not been delivered, it is held at the post office. If "Arrived at Unit" is more than 3 days, customers must print out the delivery confirmation information and go to the local office and ask for the package.
The parcel was not automatically returned to us (parcels are kept at post office a few weeks usually).

If the parcel is returned to us on the reason that it was UNCLAIMED, that means the buyer was not home when they attempted delivery & they didn't go to the post office to pick up the parcel. In this (and the above) case, should I be expected to send the parcel again, the customer will have to PAY for postage again. That is because we have provided a tracking number and it is the buyer's responsibility to collect their mail.

***If an item sent to a wrong address is returned to us, customer will have to pay postage again and provide a CORRECT address for re-sending the order.

CANCELLATIONS:
By making a payment, you agree with the policies of this shop.
However, if something happens, you can rely on our 5 HOURS cancellations policy.
That means, if more than 5 hours have passed since the purchase of items, I will start processing the order. Processing an order means:
*ordering supplies for it
*cutting the leather
*already making the whole item

THUS: I can no longer cancel an order if more than 5 hours have passed since the moment of purchase. That would bring me a loss, and it would affect my business on the long run.

HOWEVER, in some cases (for example, for items that are guaranteed to re-sell within 1-2 weeks) I can cancel your order & issue a refund, but I WILL KEEP 25% as a re-stocking fee. That means you get 75% of your money back and I get to keep 25% for having ruined a piece of leather & having wasted my time.

***CUSTOM ORDERS CANNOT BE CANCELLED. When requesting a custom order, we both communicate and decide the features of your order. THUS, asking me to cancel your order a few hours after you have made the payment won't get your order cancelled. PERIOD.

->For custom made items NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES can be given unless I screwed something up. For example, you ask for a belt 3 cm wide and I send it 2.5cm.
HOWEVER, if there is a small, millimetric error, please note that all my items are HAND CUT, so there might be a chance I would not cut/ stitch to perfection.

BUT: should the item not fit due to you not measuring your size correctly or not informing me of the correct size I cannot be held responsible.

->For products that contain metal, of any type: if your skin is allergic to metals (copper, silver, etc) and yet you purchase such an item, knowing the consequences (green or black stains on your skin, etc), no refund will be given. All items have clear descriptions, so we cannot be considered responsible of your choice.<-
Additional policies and FAQs
Do you do any wholesale?
Yes, for selected items. Some items are One of a kind, hence selling wholesale would be impossible.

My order is missing something?
Human error! Please quickly email the shop and it will be quickly resolved.

Custom orders? My pleasure!

Are you able to send an order as a gift to a special someone?
Happy to do so! Just two important requirements!
1. Let the shop know through email / or Etsy convo if the order is a gift and if you need something written with the gift. No flyers or invoices will be included.
2. Please double check and make sure that the address is correct. The shop is not responsible if it is delivered to the wrong address because of a customer error.

******Please consider that the colours of the items may vary slightly due to digital reproduction or monitor settings.

For any other enquiries, please feel free to contact me. I would gladly help you have the best shopping experience!

LOGO: the only items I aa sending without branding are the leather pulls or the items too small to fit in the logo, such as some of the keyrings / bracelets.
However, please expect to see BengjyMinu stamped on most of our creations.
I WILL NOT send an item without logo and I will feel offended if you ask me to. Thank you for understanding!
