Announcement   Travel document wallets, bag organizers, wallets, money purses, passport wallets, gadget cases, jewelry travel pouches, phone wallets, clutches, iPad cases and more! 100% designed and handmade in Australia. All products incorporate selected vintage and recycled fabric and materials.

By designing incorporating recycled materials there are only small, limited numbers of each product, with most of them being individual, unique and one of a kind original.
In today's material world we need to substitute consumption by innovation. Shop more, but consume less by buying vintage, 2nd hand or products that recycle materials.

Thank you for having interest in my products and designs. Even if you aren't purchasing anything today, just by browsing you are allowing me to do what I love.

I'm a designer maker, I love to design, create and make. Every piece has been handmade with love, thought and care. I aim to create something beautiful, of good design and of good quality every time.

I believe that in design & fashion what goes around comes around and am inspired by history and all things vintage. I also believe that luxury can be created without creating waste and so I try to use clean reclaimed and vintage materials where I can. By designing incorporating recycled materials each item is a one of a kind original, you will never find another one exactly the same. By reducing, re-using and recycling we can make a better world.

Love not hate, create not destroy.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PayPal is the preferred form of payment. This is the quickest, easiest and most secure form of payment.

Please contact me if you wish to pay by credit card, a payment request will be emailed to you via Paypal. Please send me a conversation message or email with the item(s) you want to purchase.
Shipping
All products listed are ready to ship! Postage of your purchase will be done as soon as possible after payment confirmation, within 2 working days.

Shipping is by Australia Post. My apologies if it seems a bit expensive, especially if you aren't in Australia, but they are realistic prices. Sellers are not meant to make profit from the shipping cost. It is obviously more cost effective to purchase multiple items in one transaction to reduce the cost of postage. Pricing is based on sending your purchase in the safest, most protective packaging possible.
Sometimes the real shipping price is less than the list price (we always like it when this happens!), if the actual price is less than the paid price by USD$1.50 or more a refund will be issued within 30 days of your payment transaction.

Please consider shipping time when you are making a purchase. For shipping within Australia, please allow up to 4 working days. Shipping internationally, please allow up to 10 working days / 2 weeks for delivery. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding shipping and postage prices. Please inquire about registered or express post costs for trackable parcels.

Every order is packaged to be protected as much as possible. Every order is put in the safe, reliable hands of Australia Post. In the case of an unfortunate incident the actions taken will be assessed on each individual circumstance.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me within 7 days of receiving your purchase if you wish to receive refund or exchange. Purchases must be returned unused and in their original condition to validate a refund or exchange. Unfortunately postage costs cannot be refunded, and you will need to pay for the return postage of your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Not sure how to clean or care the item you would like to purchase? Please contact me for specific cleaning recommendations. Recommendations vary due to the mix of vintage, recycled and reclaimed materials used.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any other information, details or questions.
