I really love this bag. I was looking for something that had plenty of pockets and could hold a good amount, stylish and good quality, and durable. I wasn't thrilled about the strap being man-made leather, but the rest of the bag had what I was looking for. I'm really impressed with it overall. Great quality, attractive bag, holds everything I carry around. And, super comfortable and lightweight, even when filled with tons of stuff, which I wasn't expecting but is a super pleasant surprise. I'll definitely purchase another bag in the future.

About

I love that I get to work with my hands and make a tangible thing that brings happiness to others.

The Rachel Elise brand began as a personal project while I was getting my BFA in Fiber Art. As graduation neared, I realized this could be a full time career, and I officially jumped in to full-time business-time in January of 2011.

Since then, my business has evolved in many ways, but I still design and stitch every bag from start to finish. In 2015, I added screenprinting to the Rachel Elise tool belt and I now design and print most of my fabrics. I love that I get to work with my hands and make a tangible thing that brings happiness to others.

In 2013, I decided that I wanted to share the joy of owning one's own business, so I partnered with my friend Shelley to open the DIME Store. Our shop houses handmade items from over 70 local makers and has helped Rachel Elise and many other small art businesses flourish. If you're ever in Denton, Texas, make sure you stop by to see what we're all about!

In January of 2016, my husband Bo quit his job and joined the Rachel Elise team to manage shipping, prepare materials, and help make each item from Rachel Elise a little something more. He takes great pride in seeing the product of his efforts and is a tremendous asset to the brand's overall goals and dreams. When he's not busy with a rotary cutter or postage scale, he can be found playing with cats and guitars.

Hello, and welcome to the Rachel Elise Etsy shop! I keep my shop stocked with unique, durable, and handsome bags that are great for work, play, and everything in between.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Rachel Elise accepts payment via credit card and Paypal. A 8.25% sales tax will be added to Texas orders. International customers should note that customs charges vary by country and package and are the responsibility of the buyer, not the seller.
Shipping
All items are sewn when ordered. Please allow up to ten calender days for the production of your bag, and an additional 2-3 business days for US shipping. (Orders shipping to locations outside the US generally take 2-3 weeks to arrive). You will receive an email when your order has shipped to let you know that it's en route!

US orders are shipped with tracking via USPS priority mail or USPS first class shipping. You can find tracking information in the "order has shipped" email you receive from Etsy once the package is on the way.

International orders are shipped via the United States Postal Service. International customs charges vary by country and package and are the responsibility of the buyer, not the seller.

Orders can usually be sent out more quickly if you're in a time crunch. The rush fee is an additional 25% of the item price. Feel free to message me for more info about this option!

Please contact me ASAP if you have placed an order with an outdated address. Rachel Elise is not responsible for packages mailed to incorrect or outdated addresses. Misaddressed items are generally returned to the sender and can be reshipped for an additional shipping charge.

If a package takes longer than expected to arrive, I ask that we honor a 3 week waiting period (8 weeks for non-U.S. shipping) for the package to be kicked back to me, the seller, or to arrive to you, the buyer. Sometimes packages get held up due to winter weather, international customs, or just because. Once the waiting period has passed, will we discuss options on refunds, exchanges, or re-shipping. Your patience is greatly appreciated!

Lost packages, while extremely rare, do happen on occasion and will be handled on a case by case basis. Items that have tracking info indicating that the item was delivered successfully will not be replaced.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there is a problem with the item you ordered, please contact me as soon as possible so we can work toward you being a happy customer! Refunds and exchanges are generally accepted but are handled on an individual basis. The following basic guidelines are applied to most scenarios:

> > Items that are returned due to misrepresentation of product will receive a full refund and the customer will be reimbursed for the cost of the return shipping.

> > Items that are returned but accurately represented in the item's description, measurements, etc will receive a full refund for the price of the item sans shipping charges, and will not be reimbursed for the return shipping charges.

> > Once an item as been exchanged for a new item, the sale is final.
Additional policies and FAQs
I want my customers to be as happy as possible, so let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

I'm also interested in doing wholesale work, so let me know if this is a partnership you might also be interested in.
