What an awesome experience, working with Kiandra on this bag. She completely embodies the Etsy experience, in my mind. She helped me conceptualize what kind of bag would be most useful to me, and in true craftsman spirit, made sure of all my measurements. The bag is beautifully constructed and I *love* the color. Last, when my package arrived, it was wrapped in a softly textured linen bag with a professional invoice, a care sheet, and thank-you card, all wrapped in grosgrain ribbon. To top it all off, she included a perfect little lavender sachet (my favorite!) to toss into the bag. Opening the package was a sensory delight. Thank you, Kiandra!

  • Pay with PayPal
i accept my payments in paypal and credit card only at this time. if you absolutely need another method contact me and we can work something out.

all bags are created custom for every order once payment is received in total.

i am willing to offer lay-a-away. for lay-a-way purchases, a small down payment is made, and payment is arranged in regular installments per your instructions. your bag will not be made until the total amount is paid in full.

all lay-a-way payments are considered a down payment and will not be refunded, however payments never expire...and you can take as long as you need in paying for your bag.
i ship all my bags priority and prefer to include insurance and tracking info. i value my creations and your investment and feel that insurance is a priority.
Refunds and Exchanges
i am a small one-woman business, because of the cost and time needed to create an original bag i cannot offer returns or exchanges on my handbags. i understand that my bags are an investment and will communicate with you throughly before your bag is created to ensure that it is created exactly how you envision it.
Additional policies and FAQs
When purchasing a handbag from quejimenez there are a few things to keep in mind:

about leather:

leather is an organic material. with that being said each piece is completely original. because of its organic nature it is not uncommon to find blemishes, discoloration, marks, etc. within a large piece of leather. despite my keen eye and sheer will to create the finest leather products...there is only so much that can be done.

there will be subtle nuances from piece to piece, with minor "characteristics." this is the nature and beauty of leather, and a sign of a 100% true leather product.

i do use only the finest leather and hand choose each hide to mitigate the marks, and blemishes.

dyeing leather:

dyeing leather is an art in and of itself. i believe that each dyer has her/his own "hand" and produces colorations depending on their dyeing "process." my process is an organic one where i seek to let the hand crafted quality and my dyeing "hand" come through. i do not aim for "perfection" but beauty. because my products are not "mass-produced" and created individually i strive for my particular look. my inspiration is nature...and the colorations of things in nature.

because each hide has a different chemical make-up, even if it comes from the same tannery, each hide will take, and respond to color uniquely. there will not be huge color differences, but there may be very slight differences (really slight).

caring for your quejimenez bag:

your bag is a work of art. it was artisan crafted and should last years. with that in mind, there are some ways to better preserve your bag.

despite the water-resistant finish i apply to the bags it is important for them to not get wet. leather is known to be very sensitive to water, and is not water-proof.

its also a good idea to keep the bag polished occasionally by adding leather "wax" or similar products to restore the leather's natural oils. please contact me for suggested products to use.

lastly...treat it with love, it was lovingly created by hand for you...so be kind to your bag...
