About

Eco-friendly. Convertible. Made in the USA.

I've always been an animal lover and concerned about the environment. We live in a throw-away society - we buy things for a specific purpose, as cheaply as possible, and after a year when it falls apart, we throw it away. Thankfully, things are changing - eco-friendliness, quality and versatility matter!

ECO-FRIENDLY - Wool is a fabulous fiber, meant not just for cold weather but warm weather as well. It's a breathable fiber in the heat and an insulating fiber in the cold. The best part - no sheep had to die to produce the wool! Wool is a natural, non-toxic, naturally antibacterial material. When it gets wet - it doesn't discolor or the colors don't run. My handbags are knit then felted, so the finished material is incredibly strong. This is a fiber that will last for a long, long time - not just a season! The handbag linings are made of 100% cotton - another natural fiber. Even the chains and brooches are eco-friendly in the sense that they can be taken off and reused!

CONVERTIBLE - I've designed my handbags to be flexible. Want to wear a different brooch or button? No problem - take the fancy one off and put a different one on. Just by wearing a different brooch or button, or wearing none at all, can completely change the look of your handbag. Don't want the chain? Then take it off. Rather have a wristlet instead of a chain? Then take the chain off and attach the wristlet. How many handbags out there can change their look simply by changing a few pieces of hardware? How many handbags out there even give you the option?

MADE IN THE U.S.A. - Knitting then felting my handbags takes time. Sewing in the linings, all of which are stitched into the handbag by hand, takes time. It's been suggested to me more than once that I should outsource all this work to a country with a cheaper labor force. Thank you, but no thank you. Not only do I want to employ myself, but as I grow I want to provide jobs in my community. Additionally, I can't control quality in a foreign country. I can control it here. I have high standards. You have high standards. My products may cost a little more because they're made in the USA, but my handbags are made to last for more than just a season. They're created to last a lifetime!

Returns and exchanges
I know that shopping online can be scary. With a name-brand product, you can look at the item in a local store, touch it, feel it, and make a decision as to whether or not you want to buy it. However, when you buy a unique item online, all you have to look at is a picture or two or three.

100% Satisfaction is my goal! With that in mind, I want you to feel comfortable with your purchase. If you don't like what you ordered, for whatever reason, just return it following the guidelines below. Hopefully, this takes the scary out of online shopping!

RETURN AND REFUND GUIDELINES:

You must make your return request within 7 days after receiving your merchandise. If you're not satisfied you can return your item for a full refund or a product exchange. Your items MUST be returned in good, resalable condition. Any items returned damaged will not receive a refund or will receive a partial refund depending on the damage.

Your refund or exchange will process AFTER I receive your returned package.

Items will not be considered lost in the mail until after:
U.S. Customers: 21 days
Canadian Customers: 45 days
Payment
I accept the following forms of payment: MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover. I also accept Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
All orders are shipped to your ETSY ADDRESS. If you want your package shipped to a different location, please let me know IMMEDIATELY upon checkout.

Due to crazy taxing rules for international sales, I currently sell in the United States and Canada ONLY until I can figure it all out. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience to my international customers.

MINI-CLUTCHES: Shipping and handling is FREE in the United States and delivered by USPS Priority Mail. Shipping and handling is also FREE in Canada and will be delivered by USPS First Class Mail International.

CLUTCHES: Shipping is also FREE for United States and Canadian deliveries. Your package will be sent either by USPS Priority Mail in the U.S. or USPS First Class Mail International to Canada.

EREADER/TABLET COVERS: Shipping is FREE for United States and Canadian deliveries. Your package will be sent by USPS First Class Mail and USPS Fist Class Mail International to Canada.

Orders are shipped Monday-Friday. If you would like insurance on your packages over the $100 USPS Priority Mail limit, please contact me and I'll invoice you for the insurance fees. You will receive your tracking number via email once your package ships.

Please allow 3-14 days for the arrival of your package within the United States. .Canadian deliveries will take longer. Each delivery has it's own unique circumstances and receipt may be slower due to holiday traffic.

For Custom Orders, please allow 2 - 6 weeks for delivery. All my handbags are hand crafted and take time to create. I will notify you when your handbag is shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
