Gorgeous cuffs, love the 3 that I ordered. All very unique patterns in gorgeous colours. Have worn them all and receive compliments each time I do. Bought one for a friend and she has hardly taken it off ?? Very well made. Customer service and communication is absolutely fantastic. Really looking forward to any new designs. Thankyou.

One day I needed a handbag...

... and "onceworn twiceloved" was born.

As a child I loved to draw and sew, then, sadly, I grew up.
After years of working a real job, my neglected creative side screamed for attention, and I got back into the fun stuff, making handbags and accessories from recycled leather and textiles.

I was over the moon when I discovered I could sell my creations on Etsy, and people would actually want to buy them! I've never looked back since.

The potential of gorgeous vintage textiles and clothing just amazes me, and I hope you love what I turn them into as much as I love the process of creating them!

Payments can be made through Paypal, an easy to use secure online payment system. If you don’t have an account you do not need to sign up to use their service, and can pay directly through their site by credit card.

Please make sure you make payment within 3 days of the purchase. After 3 days, you will receive a reminder from me. All non-paid transactions within 7days of purchase will be canceled.

If you can’t pay immediately please let me know. I don’t mind waiting a few days as as long as I know what's going on!
I try to ship the next day after receiving payment because I know the anticipation of the item arriving in post is just too much sometimes!

I ship to your Etsy address. If you need me to ship to a different address it’s not a problem, but please let me know before you order.

Within Australia ::
Small items are sent via Regular Post within Australia. Delivery to major cities is 1 to 2 days, but can take several days to country locations.
Bags are sent via Registered Parcel Post so they are insured as well as trackable. Delivery can take up to 7 days.

International shipping ::
I send my bags via Australia Post "Pack and Track International" where possible (available to the US, UK, NZ, Singapore, and Ireland) . Parcels sent this way can be tracked online. Bags to other destinations are sent via Registered Post, and while they can't be tracked online, they can be tracked by calling the postal service.

Smaller items are sent via Regular Post Airmail (not trackable).

Some examples of estimated transit times are:
USA/Canada 6-10 working days
Singapore 5-7 working days
New Zealand 4-6 working days

**If you need your item urgently I also offer an Express Courier service, just select the additional charge for this option when you checkout. Items are delivered in 3-5 business days to most destinations**

I can send small items internationally with tracking, but unfortunately the cost is pretty high. Let me know if you’re worried and you’d like a quote.

Please note that international customers are responsible for all customs, duties and taxes associated with shipping to their respective countries. Delays through customs, while unlikely, are possible. Most countries have a dollar limit under which customs/tax is not payable. Please note that some destinations, such as the UK, have a very low limit and customs/tax fees may be charged.
Refunds and Exchanges
I’d hate it if you were unhappy with your purchase, so please check out all the pictures and details in the listing and don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you need to if anything isn’t clear. I’m really quite friendly, and I’m happy to provide more details if you need them!

Items are made from re-purposed fabric and leather and some flaws, such as old stitching lines on my leather bags, are intended to be part of the item’s vintage charm. Having said that, if something you buy doesn’t function as intended, then I am more than happy for you to return your purchase for a full refund.
