Whats the difference between 'Made to Order' & 'Pre-Order'?
Made to order means I have the materials and they will be made just for you within 14 days. Pre-order means I'm awaiting the delivery of the materials but you can pre -order the item & it will be made once the materials have arrived ( If a listing is on Pre -Order there will be an ETA written in the description ).
What are the Dora purses & Brookaloo bags made from ?
They are made from genuine By-Product leather which is left over from the food industries (sourced within the UK) so essentially using up waste, even though it is By-Product leather it is of a great quality & is very durable.
The super special paints I use are specialty leather edge paints, they are like a water based resin they are sourced from Italy and I order them consciously .
Do the Dora Purses & Brookaloo Bags come with dust bags ?
Purses and bags do not come with dust bags, but you can buy them separately if you wish.
How do I look after my Dora purse or Brookaloo bag ?
Absolutely Love them !
Wipe regular & gently with a soft cloth to remove any dust or dirt.
Store in a dust bag when its not in use, if you don't have one a pillowcase is a great alternative, keep out of direct sunlight.
A little light rain is fine just wipe off and dry naturally, but do not let your bag get soaking wet.
Avoid sharp/ rough surfaces or objects that could scratch the leather.
Avoid overfilling to prevent any stretching.
Buff or polish the brass hardware, over time the brass hardware may develop a patina you can buff or polish it to help keep it super shiny !
