Not big enough to fit a phone in a small case.

This has been settled with a refund. An exchange for a larger size was also possible. I have adjusted the listing for the nude wallet regarding sizing. It is now available in several sizes.

About

Eco Fabulous bags and covers for Fabulous people!

There's something addictive about working with my hands. I use my hands every day to create functional, appealing and sustainable gadgets, that stand out from the crowd.

Way back, in 199-something, I learnt how to build a house.. and graduated. I realised I was not a builder of large strcutures with ditto numbers.. so in the new millenium I graduated from fashion school. I learnt how to create things with my hands. As I am not the crafty type of person, I study the function of things and my designs. This is how the clear and straight lines of my designs arise.
I take pride in working with premium natural materials. The cognac buffalo calf leather is vegetable tanned and is made exclusively for us. The undyed woolfelt is a genuine natural product and made in Europe. It has been process in-depth work for years to find these wonderful materials.

The times that I worked alone are past. It is a great pleasure to teach and learn from the fashion students that reside here. In case you are interested in learning about even stitches, red details and running a small international business, please write me. I am always looking for handmade souls to share my passion with :)

Etsy has been of great influence on the development of me and my work. I am proud to be a Etsy Seller. My bags and covers are in use all over the world because of Etsy.

When I have the time I love to ride my bike. I use a large red Dutch bike for transport around town and my Bianchi racer for the faster kilometers.

Hallo! Welcome to my Etsy shop. My name is Annemieke Westerman.
I make felt & leather bags and covers with a fresh and modern feel. I create every item myself, with a passion for functionality, raw materials and contemporary design.

My goal is to achieve pleasant ♪ transactions by offering high quality handmade products and personal services. If you still have questions about anything after reading the following information please do not hesitate to contact me.

All bags are made after you've placed the order. They're made by me, in my home-based studio in Holland. It takes 6-8 workingdays for a bag to be ready to ship. Covers are made within 3-4 days. If you're in a hurry, you can upgrade to express services.

In case you have questions about your (potential) order, it is much appreciated if you ask this BEFORE you place your order. This will work much better for both of us, or for any shopowner from Etsy. It will avoid mistakes and disappointment.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept payment per PayPal, Direct Checkout (creditcard) and Ideal/Sofort.

Please note: Prices in our Etsy shop are without 21% VAT (Dutch: BTW) It will be charged upon ordering. It will appear as "Sales Tax" on your invoice. This ONLY applies to EU residents.
For pricing including sales tax please visit our Dutch website at www.WestermanBags.com
Shipping
Your bag or cover comes well wrapped, suitable as a gift for both men and women. A detailed invoice is included for a smooth passage at customs. For parcels (bags) we have to add an invoice, also when the package is a gift.

SHIPPING
All items are shipped via TNT post or PostNL with Priority Mail. This has proven to be a reliable, low cost way to ship internationally. Since 2014 we ship all our bags (parcels) with track & trace shipping. You can track your parcel here: www.internationalparceltracking.com

All packages are insured and claims on lost packages can be filed 45 days after ship date (60 days for packages to Italy). Refunds will be issued when insurance claims are filed. If you wish to have a second order shipped, shipping will need to be upgraded to a method that offers tracking. When the time lapse between purchase and the insurance claim has exceeded 60 days, a refund cannot be made.

Orders will be processed within 3-5 business days of placing your order, some orders (bags) take longer and will be indicated on the listing. You will be sent an email notification when your order ships out. For custom orders please allow between 7-10 business days for your order to be processed. We don't normally ship out orders on the weekend.

Large covers.
In order to keep the shipping rates reasonable for the large covers, these will be send in a strong, unbreakbale yet flexible envelope (Tyvek). These can be recycled with plastics.

UPGRADES
We understand that you want or need your new cover as soon as possible. Express delivery services from the Netherlands to overseas destinations like USA, Canada, Australia are very, very expensive. (About the price of a bag).
Normally it takes a few days before a cover is ready ship because everything is made after athe order has been placed. In order to respond to this we offer Express Processing Service. You pay us a little extra for working a bit harder and longer on the day that you place your order. Which means we will have your cover ready to ship on the next businessday. For example: Cover ordered on Tuesday is ready to ship on Wednesday. With priority mail, shipping itself will take another 3-6 businessdays to US.

See below a list of shipping times for common destinations. The full list can be found here, where you can find your country in the dropmenu at “kies uw land”. Although we have good experience with these shipping times, (with exceptions for delays at customs and in the holiday period) we cannot guarantee delivery on a certain date. Please keep in mind that we do not ship in the weekends or on bank holidays.

Shipping takes place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. With the exception of the Upgrade for Express processing.

The option for Express Delivery in Europe is for Western European destinations only. In case you have opted for this whilst living in another region than Western Europe, we will change your upgrade to Express Processing and reimburse the overpaid amount.

QUALITY AND MAINTENANCE

Leather.
We use vegetable tanned leather. The surface is porous and not flawless. Small scratches will come & go. If the leather dries out you can put some natural (no color) shoe shine on the leather for conditioning. We use Fiebings natural wax for a subtle satin shine. The leather will darken overtime and become more shiny.

Woolfelt:
The felt we use is produced in Europe & carries the Woolmark label: 100% virgin woolfelt, with a density of 250. Due to this density, the felt is highly waterrepellant, however not fully waterproof. It is durable, dirt- and water repellant. In case you still need to clean the felt; first bristle it with a very soft bristle brush. A baby brush works best. Don't rub. You can then carefully rinse it with luke warm water and some (soft) soap. Lay flat, on a towel, to dry. Use a cool and dry iron.
When pills (small felt balls) occur, cut them off with sharp scissors. The sharp cut will prevent the felt from forming new pills.
