Reclaimed Threads is a line of sustainable bags. All reclaimed fabrics are used to create a truly one of a kind bag to reflect not only your fashion sense but also your sense of responsibility towards the world around you. Materials come from auctions, thrift shops, donations and anywhere else that quality second-hand textiles can be found. Every bit of fabric is pre-washed before sewing and then after the bag is complete, each piece is adorned with three trinkets representing the effort to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Reclaimed Threads believes that living sustainably goes beyond what bag you carry. If we can give back to a well-rounded selection of charitable causes, we will be doing our small part to help society.

This is why Reclaimed Threads will give 5% of each bag you purchase to charity. Every three months the charity will change so that we can give to a variety of causes. So you can feel good about buying Reclaimed Threads Sustainable Bags on several levels. Check the shop's home page to see what charity is being donated to this quarter!

If you are not satisfied with your purchase immediately upon receiving it, you may send it back within 3 days for a full refund minus shipping.

I will refund your money once I receive the bag and inspect it to make sure that it is in the same condition it left me. I am sorry but no exchanges. I truly hope this is never an issue and that you love your purchase! If this is the case though, please message me right away so I am aware of the situation.

Here is a guide to paying if you are new to etsy

Payment is due at time of purchase. If payment is not received within 24 hours of a reminder message from me, I re-list the item(s) in question.
Shipping and Handling:

Completed orders are shipped every morning using USPS First Class Mail. I make every effort on my end to get your items out as soon as the transaction is complete so you can start enjoying your sustainable bag! I charge for shipping and handling and use only recycled packaging to stay in line with Reclaimed Threads mission.

US deliveries should be received within 3-5 days of shipping, Canada 5-6 days.

For everywhere else, expected delivery time is about a week according to the Post Office. I was told it depends on the efficiency of the mail system in each country but a week waiting time is average.
Additional policies and FAQs

Washing: While I have pre-washed all materials before sewing to minimize shrinkage, I do not know how well the ornamental items on each bag would hold up through the wash and dry cycle. Because of this I would recommend spot cleaning when needed, dry cleaning if something drastic goes wrong and if you must must must put the bag into the washing machine I would put the product in a delicates bag, on the gentle cycle and flat dry.

Ironing: Not only can you iron your bag, but you will probably want to when you first get it if it is wrinkled from shipping!

Enjoy your Reclaimed Threads Sustainable Bag!
