Frequently Asked Questions

Do you ship internationally?

In most cases yes!  Message me with your EXACT address to calculate shipping.  Most orders can be sent First Class mail (10-20 days) or Priority Mail (7-10 days), which comes with tracking.  Buyer assumes all responsibility for taxes and assessments that may be charged by your country.

Can you do custom sizes?

Yes!  Porter totes and Rustic totes are available in almost any size.  Size adjustments generally cost an additional $10-20.  Strap length can be custom as well. 

Is this leather thick enough to be used as a work bag?

If you are wanting to use your new tote as a work bag, the best fit is the Porter tote.  It is made out of 6 oz. oiled and waxed leather and can hold the weight of a laptop and folders, small notebooks, etc.  The tall will easily fit a 13” MacBook, the short will fit it as well, it will just stick out of the top about 2”.

What is the difference between the Porter leather and the Rustic leather?

Porter leather is the thickest leather H+D uses, 6oz.  The Rustic leather is about 4oz.  Both are full grain leather with a ‘pull up’ effect, which causes it to show creases and marks and gives it a really awesome worn in and rustic look.  Both leathers are waxed and oiled and require minimal care!

How are orders shipped?

All orders are shipped via USPS Priority mail, 2-3 day delivery.  You will receive an email with tracking information once your package is on its way! If you have the Etsy app on your phone you will receive a delivery notification as well.

Can orders be returned or exchanged?

Yes, orders may be returned or exchanged within 7 days of receiving them.  You must contact me to initiate the return.  Items need to be returned in boxes not bags or envelopes (they get damaged in the mail).  For exchanges your original shipping cost will be refunded once the item is received and you will either be refunded the difference of your new item or invoiced for the overage + shipping.  If you are buying an item in advance for a gift, please note in your order that you will need more than the 7 day return period.  No returns on custom orders.
