Warranty & Care
We provide a 6 month warranty from time of purchase on our leather bags.
WHAT IS COVERED BY OUR WARRANTY?
Our leather handbags are made with the best quality soft and lightweight natural grain cow leather sourced from Santa Croce sull’Arno in Tuscany, Italy. This is a natural product and each leather hide is unique. No piece will be exactly the same as another and some may have natural markings and character which are not faults, but show the natural quality. Colour fading or darkening, marking and stretching as a result of regular usage, all add to the character of your bag, they are not considered a fault.
During the warranty period, we cover Handbags that are defective in material or craftsmanship under normal use. This means that if the materials aren't right or if the handbag isn't put together correctly, we'll repair or replace it. If in the unlikely event this is the case, we will replace or repair your product at our discretion.
The warranty DOES NOT cover:
- Damage resulting from improper handling, lack of care, exceeding the 5kg weight restriction, soaking, soiling, machine washing, accidents or normal wear and tear.
- The brand stamp as it will naturally fade with time
- The warranty will be voided in the case that a third party performed repair works or other works on the handbag without first contacting HARRY AUSTIN and obtaining approval.
Items listed as Final Sale, including those sold as part of our Handbag Revival collection, cannot be returned or exchanged, nor do they come with a warranty.
