Frequently asked questions

How should I care for my bag?

Many of the African cloths used in our bags are handmade in small communities across the continent using traditional methods. Once received, they are carefully cleaned and treated to prevent most stains and spills. You can spot clean the fabric as necessary.

Leather should be treated regularly to keep it supple and clean. Avoid storing your bag in direct sunlight or in a sealed plastic bag as these can cause the leather to dry out and fade.

Custom and personalized orders

A limited number of custom orders may be considered. Please contact us with your request.

The item I want is sold out. Is it coming back?

Because each cloth is unique and sourced directly from the maker (or a close family member), it means that some items are only available in small quantities and may therefore sell out quickly.

If something you want is out of stock, please contact us and we'll let you know if that item (or something similar) is due to become available again.

Where do you ship?

Orders can be shipped anywhere in the world. We have a $15 flat rate for first class, tracked, international shipping. A tracking number will be provided to you once the parcel has been shipped.

Can I find Chameleon Goods locally?

Yes, we do currently stock in a limited number of shops around the world. Please contact us to find a shop in your area.

We are happy to accept wholesale inquiries. Please contact us for more information and for a link to the Chameleon Goods wholesale line-sheet.
