LaurelDassoLeathers' Shop Announcement

Thank you for visiting my shop! I'm glad you're here, and I sincerely hope I can make the bag of your dreams for you.

~ Like my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/DalleMieMani for sneak peeks and new leathers and linings!

~ I never shop out my production and have no assistants... Each and every bag is hand cut and sewn by me from your chosen leather and lining (or in the case of new designs and READY to SHIP.. my choice of leather and lining). In this way I can make any adjustments needed to make your bag one of a kind, specifically for you.

~ Please read Production Time and Shipping here or in my shop policies before ordering, thank you! ~ Bags in the queue as of February 11th - 30

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRODUCTION TIME and SHIPPING
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ Unless your purchased bag is specifically listed as READY to SHIP, Currently please allow approximately 4-5 weeks OR SO after your purchase is paid in full before your order ships. This will vary depending on the number of orders in the queue, currently my queue is fairly long, thank you SO very much for your patience. My items are hand made to order for you, and I am honored to be a busy shop with many orders to create each week.

~ I ship to your ETSY address, unless you message me that it needs to be shipped elsewhere. Please make sure your Etsy address is correct.

~ If you need your bag by a certain date, contact me prior to your purchase so we can arrange a Rush order.... a simple inquiry regarding rush orders will not make yours a rush, as there is no order to attach that to. Once we have agreed on a time frame, please remind me in the notes to seller at checkout that your bag is a Rush, per our convo. Thank you so much, this really helps me.

~ Please be courteous to your fellow Etsy shoppers.. Unless we have discussed a Rush order PRIOR to your purchase, your bag will be constructed in the order that your order was received. The only way I can ensure that your bag is as perfect as I can make it, is not to rush through its construction.

~ Anything marked "READY TO SHIP" will ship out in one business day.

~ It bears repeating... If you need your bag by a certain date, PLEASE contact me prior to your purchase and I am happy to arrange that for you if at all possible. Thank you for understanding that my bags are handmade by me and only me, not manufactured in a factory, and I estimate the time they will take as best I can. As always, please feel free to check in as to the status of your order while it is in process.

~ Once your bag is finished, it will ship via your chosen USPS method. PLEASE NOTE: choosing Express shipping only makes your shipping faster once the bag is finished, it doesn't move your order ahead in the queue.

~ For custom orders ~ These take CONSIDERABLY longer, depending on the request, as a pattern will need to be drafted for your special one of a kind bag, and leathers, linings and hardware may need to be hunted down and ordered. This process CANNOT be rushed, and each project takes a lot of thought regarding best process to make your vision come to life.
"CUSTOM" is a bag that you have dreamed up and I have not made before. One of my listed bags made in an alternate (in stock) leather or with a different strap configuration is considered "Made to order" and does not fall into the Custom category.

EVERYTHING ELSE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ Everything in my shop is cut, stitched, wrapped, and shipped by me in my Manhattan, NY home studio. I personally choose and purchase every leather, lining, and hardware. Thank you for your patience while I create your beautiful new bag.

I use only the finest materials available ~ SOLID hardware (whether you choose solid brass or solid silver nickel) and each handbag is meticulously constructed and double stitched everywhere with Dabond T90 thread, which is 100% polyester, super thick, strong, durable and rot-proof..... My hope is that you'll want to carry your bag forever; and I really do strive to make sure that it will survive anything that you can put it through.

~ Because the leathers I use are full or top grain (versus inferior secondary cuts from the hide) some natural markings including brands, finished scratches / bites may or may not be present. Typically, these markings are very subtle and are considered by most as the "signature" of fine, authentic leather

Refunds and Exchanges

I carefully describe each listing in the listing text.. including measurements, type of leather, hardware details, production time, shipping time, etc. Please read the listing and my shop announcement carefully, as I will not refund your purchase based upon not reading the details of the bag you are purchasing.
When you purchase a bag from me, it is made to order for you. Its not pulled out of an existing inventory.

As a one-girl shop I generally do not accept returns nor do refunds. Keep in mind that these are handmade to order bags, and are cut and sewn individually by me alone, for you. That being said, I want you to be thrilled with your purchase from me ~ I am always happy to work with you to make sure your bag is exactly what you dreamed of!

If you have a concern about your bag, please contact me, and I will do everything I can to resolve it to your complete satisfaction.


*** Because of their individual nature, custom orders are NOT returnable or refundable.

Additional Policies and FAQs

My bags are Made to Order. Unless otherwise stated, the bags pictured on each listing are sold. As I make each bag by hand, expect small variations from bag to bag. Pictured hardware also may be upgraded.

Measurements provided in listings are measured at the widest/tallest/deepest area of bag. Shape of bag can appear slightly different when lying flat, as opposed to being stuffed and placed up right for taking pictures for listing.

Leather can slightly stretch and contract. for this reason measurements can also seem slightly off what is provided in listing, giving you a 1/2" or more difference when measured. Bulky pockets etc. incorporate in seams can add to this difference but once bag is in use, the weight of inside items will smooth the seams out to give bag it's original measurement.

Please contact me for costs, rates, and production time for custom orders.
