Q: How do I keep the leather clean?
A: We recommend cleaning it with a dry cloth, if something was spilled onto the handbag, use a slightly damp cloth and lightly pat on the spot. If leather has shiny finish(top coat), you may use a wet cloth, just ensure that the spot dries properly (Leather can rot). Using Plush Leather Protector is highly recommended as it provides a resistance against stains. Should be reapplied every 3 to 6 months to ensure adequate protection.You can also apply Dubbin once a year to treat the leather but please note that Dubbin will make the leather darker if there's no top coat.
Q: What payment methods do you accept?
A: We use a payment gateway called PayFast that ensures encrypted and safe transactions. They accept debit cards, credit cards, and InstantEFT. We also accept EFT payments made directly, instructions can be found on the checkout page.
Q: Do you do custom orders?
A: Unfortunately not. As we work with a community project, we have a 1 to 2 month designing process where we develop patterns for them to use, this makes it difficult and costly to have to stop production and modify patterns to make a custom order.
Q: Do you have a shop?
A: We do have pop-up shops around Pretoria, for up to date info please refer to our home page where we regularly update our pop-up store's details
