You are Carrying a Piece of the Past....

Our Hardware.
Divina Denuevo literally means “Divine Again” in Spanish. We search high and low for antique and vintage hardware, keys and adornments in an effort to up-cycle something old that was otherwise destined for the landfill, and make it new again.

Our Leather.
We intentionally embrace and preserve the perfect imperfections found in leather. The brand marks, textures and idiosyncrasies of the material emphasize how unique each and every piece is – no two are ever the same. Over time, your leather will develop a beautiful patina reflective of the life it’s had with you and the adventures you’ve shared.

Our Guarantee.
Every Divina Denuevo accessory is lovingly handmade from start to finish by two people. Each piece is designed, cut, assembled, sewn, riveted and finished with attention to detail and pride. We offer a lifetime guarantee for our hardware. Leather, when cared for properly, will last more than a lifetime.

Thank You.
By purchasing a Divina Denuevo leather accessory you are not only investing in a product that will last a lifetime, you are also helping preserve history and reduce waste.


Divina Denuevo operates out of beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. All of our work is lovingly handmade, by the two of us, in our small studio.

Thanks for visiting,

Victoria & Dave

About

As with many adventures, the birth of Divina Denuevo began with a skeleton key…

A key that unlocked a love for creating unique pieces that hint to a simpler time, using time-honoured leather-crafting techniques and sustainable design principles.

ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:

We're a two-person army caught in a love affair with leather. What started as a hobby on the kitchen floor of Dave's 500 square foot shoebox apartment while working full-time jobs turned into an absolute dream. After a year and a half of Dave not being able to walk without tripping on pieces of leather, we were able to move out to our very own studio space (that we share with a couple of other leather-passionate people). We're grateful to every single one of our customers for giving us the chance to escape our cubicles and create pieces of functional art that echo our personal principles of social responsibility.

As with many adventures, the birth of Divina Denuevo began with a skeleton key…

A key that unlocked a love for creating unique pieces that hint to a simpler time, using time-honoured leather-crafting techniques and sustainable design principles. Our designs are unique and edgy, while also remaining romantic and classic. We focus on re-purposing that which the world has cast aside in redundancy like keys that no longer open doors and locks that have lost their place as time has worn on. We believe in reducing waste and re-using our scraps to minimize our footprint, and in working with our hands to make pieces of functional art.

------------------------------------------
MEET THE DESIGNERS

Victoria:
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, it was only natural that Victoria chose to name the line of leather goods she was making in Spanish. Passionate about sustainability and eco-consciousness since her teenage years, she shops local as much as possible, checks the carbon footprint of her groceries, and tries to reduce the amount of plastic in her household.
Before launching the Divina Denuevo line, Victoria was always making things: from clothes to jewelry, she preferred to create something original rather than wear what the masses were sporting. When she came upon her first piece of leather she was fascinated – the rustic look and raw edges looked absolutely perfect and unique. Having always collected opulent oddities such as skeleton keys and antique hardware, she found that the shiny glints of hardware on the rich leather made an excellent juxtaposition. After making her first bag, she began looking at any old hardware that might end up in a landfill: doorknobs, cabinet handles, keyplates, hinges – It became her mission to find anything that she could save, repurpose, and make beautiful again.


Dave:
Dave grew up in a smaller community in Northern BC and moved to the Lower Mainland after high school to complete his degree. He met Victoria when they both worked at the same company. They became good friends and when Victoria was preparing for a local market, Dave offered to help. He originally began managing the business administration of the line (handling pricing, inventory, product management and logistics), but soon found a spark in creativity that led him to begin designing. His passion for the environment and natural talent for technical design began to shine through, lending balance to Victoria’s artistic side. Dave still handles all the supply and production administration, pricing and inventory, leaving Victoria to do the marketing and customer service. They both share in the design and creation, working together as a collaborative team rather than as two individuals.

• PayPal is one of the most recognized payment options globally.
• Your credit card information is not revealed to merchants or PayPal members.

Shipping
Most of our items are MADE TO ORDER, so at most we request you allow 2 weeks for your bag or accessory to be created - as sometimes it can take a little longer to get the leather and make your special piece! We try to ship within three – five business days of receiving clear payment if your item is IN STOCK, but these times can vary.

Your item will arrive to you carefully packaged using as much recycled materials as possible. Please be kind to the planet and recycle the packaging.

US & CANADA
US orders ship either via Canada Post Light Packet & Small Packet Air Service for smaller items, medium and large are shipped US Small Packet Surface or USPS First Class or Priority Mail Service. Packages typically arrive within four – ten business days for air. If you have purchased a larger item, your item may arrive via ground shipping - in order to keep costs down. These items can take up to 2 weeks to arrive. Tracking usually costs $10-$20 more per parcel, which is why we do not provide tracking unless requested, at which point the buyer pays for the additional costs.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
In order to keep costs down for our customers, for orders to everywhere else we ship via Canada Post Airmail Service. Delivery time varies and can take from 1 to 2 weeks. If you would like to upgrade or would like insurance and tracking for your package please contact us.

Shipments outside Canada may be subject to Customs Duty and/or other Local Taxes. International customs charges/ local taxes/ fees/ VAT are responsibility of the buyer.

RUSHED SHIPPING
Please be in touch before purchasing if you require expedited shipping. Additional costs may apply, and will be dependent on production time (sometimes we can't make something fast enough!). Once we confirm the cost and availability of a rushed order, you may proceed with your purchase.

SHIPPING COMPLICATIONS

Our Error:
If there has been some shipping complications (such as you receiving another person's item and there was a mix up in the mail), please send us PHOTOS of what was received with original packaging so we can sort out what happened during delivery and we will send a replacement free of charge immediately, and cover the costs of the incorrect item being returned to us. *Photo evidence is absolutely mandatory!*

Your Error:
If you provided an incorrect or impartial address and your parcel is returned to sender, you are responsible for the costs of re-shipping the parcel and any costs incurred from the post office to obtain your parcel (sometimes they charge return shipping). If at the point in which we receive the returned parcel you would like a refund, a refund will be granted less the cost of initial postage, any fees incurred, plus a 10% restocking fee - so please make sure your address is complete & correct!

Lost/Stolen/Damaged Mail:
We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items in the mail. We retain proof of shipping and are happy to provide evidence of your shipped item if required. We often, as a safety precaution, purchase insurance on shipped items to be able to offer you a refund or replacement in the event of lost/stolen mail. Unfortunately, not all countries are insurable, so if you are shipping to one of those countries, we can't cover the loss of your country's postal service's errors - it's simply not viable as a small business to have to pay for a 3rd party's errors. If you are unsure whether your country is covered by our insurance provider, please send us a message in advance and we'll let you know.
Refunds and Exchanges
We sincerely appreciate your business and want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Please let us know if there is something that we can do to remedy a concern that you have with one of our items. We stand behind our products 100% and offer an unconditional return within 7 days of receipt*.

* Items must be unused and undamaged, in their original packaging (gift box, where applicable, and product tags, guarantee cards, etc). Shipping cost and any rush order fees (where applicable) will not be refunded. Buyer is responsible for return shipping, and any fees incurred from return shipping (including but not limited to brokerage fees, duty, postage fees, etc. Please make sure to properly complete your customs form to avoid any such fees).

* Custom orders are non-refundable. Personalized orders are non-refundable.


Please make sure that the Item is properly packaged in its original packing and you use the correct address and appropriate shipping methods for return shipping. We can not be held responsible for items damaged or lost in shipping.

If there is a problem with your order that is the result of our error, we will fix it immediately and pay all return and reshipping fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
We believe in doing business in a fair, open and honest manner. Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and the whole experience. If a problem arises, however, we'll do all that we can to make it right.

BUYING HANDMADE
All of our items are handmade and pieces may vary slightly from the photos in the listing. Particularly with leather bags, each piece of leather has its own unique grain and texture, patina and idiosyncrasies, so will be unique and one-of-a-kind. Antique and Vintage hardware has lived its life as something exposed to elements before it came to be a part of our work- this means it will have the same wear and patina expected of an antique or vintage item. We try and represent this as much as possible in the images.

Please keep in mind that we usually make more than one of the same item, so please allow slight differences to the piece that you receive. If this is a problem, please feel free to contact us before purchase so that we can let you know if I will actually be able to send you the one in the picture.

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER
When cared for properly, a leather bag can last a lifetime. Use frequently, and your bag will develop a beautiful patina.

Use products for conditioning leather to clean, or take to a professional leather cleaning facility.

CUSTOM ORDERS ARE WELCOME
We do custom orders as well, if there is something special you had in mind, please convo us. Once we have agreed on your design, we will create a custom listing for your you with the quoted price. Once payment is completed we will begin your order and notify you when it ships. We're sorry, there are no refunds accepted on custom orders.


ITEMS WITH BACK-ORDERED MATERIALS
Sometimes, we are back ordered on materials for certain items but they will still be listed in our shop. We always notify you that the materials are back ordered. If you would like to purchase the item, please be advised that it could take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to make and have delivered.

SOLD ITEMS
We try to keep designing new and fresh creations for our Etsy shop. However, if you see something you like in our sold items, please convo. us. We would be more than happy to remake it and post a custom listing for you :)

WHOLESALE
Wholesale orders are welcome, no consignment. We're sorry, but we don't do trades either. You can view more info about wholesaling with us at www.divina-denuevo.com/wholesale-inquiries


ETSY PRICING
If you are familiar with our stand-alone website, www.divina-denuevo.com, you will note that there is a slight difference in pricing. This is due to a number of factors: our etsy pricing is listed in USD, which is valued less than CAD(the currency on our website). In addition, the extra costs associated with listing on etsy, the percentage etsy takes after closing a sale, and the time it takes to post on an additional site are factored, resulting in a slight increase in pricing.
Please convo us if you should have any other questions :)
