About

Handcrafted Waxed Canvas Gear with Vintage Appeal

I make backpacks, messengers and satchels from wonderful, ever-lasting waxed canvas with recycled wool from suit jackets, skirts and other vintage fabrics integrated into the details. Doing this lets me combine some of my favorite things -- stitching, deconstructing & recycling vintage clothes AND thrift shopping. It's an on-going adventure!

Wooly Bison is me! Ingrid Rowe. I love to make well-made, classic bags to last a long time. I worked at a small messenger bag company from 2004-2009 designing and stitching custom applique and heavy-duty bags. Wool and waxed canvas are the NEW fabrics in my life. I've been developing a few styles of unisex bags and backpacks--feel free to offer feedback if there's something you might like to see.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

1. Personal information
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

5. Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6. Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Ingrid Rowe, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at woolybisonbags [!at] gmail.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
Ingrid Rowe 5042 29th Ave S Seattle, WA 98108

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I haven't had a problem other than a busted snap, but if an item has a defect I'd be happy to repair it for you. The buyer is responsible for the return fee, but we'll ship it back out at our cost. If you're not happy with your purchase, let me know! In most cases I can re-sell it if it's in new condition and within 30 days. We cannot accept returns on worn/used stock.
Payment
We accept PayPal, credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and money orders. Please provide payment at time of purchase unless other arrangements are made. If you have questions ask anytime!
I'll try to ship out your item(s) within a day or two of being received, or in the case of made-to-order, as soon as the listing indicates.
Shipping
Make sure your shipping address is correct and COMPLETE, and include apartment #'s and floors. Customers will be charged a second time to ship orders returned due to an "incomplete" or "undeliverable address", and nobody wants that!

Please be aware that I cannot replace stolen or lost goods. Signature confirmation is recommended.

If you are shipping internationally, let me know beforehand if you have any questions. Ship address MUST include a first & last name.

I have no control over border fees/taxes charged for imported goods. If you'd like to know if or how much you would pay, I recommend checking how it works for your particular country beforehand. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Feel free to inquire about custom color combinations. I almost always have more fabric than what is seen on the site.
