About

Morelle: Twin sisters dream

Morelle is owned by twin sisters Jenny and Katie Grigoratou. It was founded in 2007 by Katie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Katie is a self-taught designer with nothing but pure creative power and resolve. She started morelle completely as a hobby on the side of her full time job, learning as she went along. In less than a year after she started, she had quit her full time job and Etsy even invited her to be a featured seller.

After a couple of years of success and a break due to personal circumstances Katie was back to the sewing table and this time her sister Jenny followed.

While Katie is the creative one, Jenny is the analytical genius. They both knew that to run a label you need both creativity and to be business savvy and that together they would have the perfect match.

Morelle-designs combine feminine style with practicality. The basic style of the bags is chic, stylish and a little bit playful. At the same time they are all functional and built to resist the everyday wear and tear. Katie's unconventional introduction to design has resulted in unusual and maybe a little bit quirky design style.

Morelle bags are made with genuine Italian cowhide leather. We try to use the best materials available so our bags will be sturdy and last forever.

Shipping
We ship by DHL courier. You will be able to track your package from door to door on the DHL website (we will provide the link to you).

We will need your phone number to provide to the courier so please provide that upon checkout.

Delivery times to the US and Canada are 3 - 4 working days. Delivery times to European destinations are 1 - 2 days. Please contact us for delivery times to other destinations.

We always ship to your ETSY address. Please make sure that this address is correct and updated. If you want us to ship your bag to another address send us a message.

PLEASE NOTE: DHL does not deliver to PO Boxes.

- INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS -

Packages may be held in customs (although very rare) and therefore be delayed. You will be able to see if your package is held in customs via the tracking information.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns are possible. If your bag is not exactly what you expected then you can return it provided you return it within 1 to 2 days of receipt. We will refund you the amount of the bag minus the shipping cost. Please contact us if you would like to return your bag for instructions on how to do so.

Refunds will NOT be given if:

- A bag does not get back to us because of fault of the buyer.
- The bag has been used and/or has signs of wear & tear

Please note that specifications on the size of the bag are on the listing. Please make sure you read these correctly so you don't receive a bag that is not the size you expected. Please also note that colors may vary from display to display. We try to display the colors as accurately as I can but capturing the correct color on a picture is quite hard (I'm not a professional photographer) and in addition colors appear different from screen to screen. If the color is not what you expect it please send back the bag asap and you will receive a refund.

EXCHANGES

We accept exchanges on the same terms as the refund. As soon as we receive the bag and make sure that it is in top condition then we can send you your other selected bag. The buyer will have to pay for the shipping cost of both bags.
Additional policies and FAQs
- CUSTOM ORDERS -

Due to a high volume of orders we do not take custom orders.

- WHOLESALE -

For wholesale orders please contact us for more info.

- CARE FOR YOUR BAG -

Your bags come with care instructions. Some hides are more sensitive than others so to be safe we would always recommend that you take your bag to a professional leather dry cleaner and seek for advice on what is more appropriate for your bag.

ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE SPRAY ON YOUR LEATHER BAG BEFORE FIRST USE AND REPEAT ACCORDING TO THE LABEL INSTRUCTIONS.

- FEEDBACK -

We highly value Quality and Customer Care. The amazing feedback we've received over the years is a testament to our values. If you're not entirely satisfied with your purchase please contact us and we'll be happy to address your concerns.
