2.4 If We are unable to supply you with any Product(s) ordered or if We are unable to comply with the timescale set out in your Order, We will inform you of this by email as soon as is reasonably practicable upon becoming aware of any such issues, and We will not process the Order unless and until you confirm to Us by email that you wish Us to proceed and the details of any changes required to be made to your Order. If We are able to, We will offer you the nearest alternative or if you would prefer, We will refund you the full amount that you have paid in respect of the relevant Products as soon as is reasonably practicable, where you have already paid for the Products.
2.5 Once your Order is received by Us, it will be added to Our workflow system list for the next available day and scheduled for crafting. We will email you with confirmation of your Order and request that you confirm the details to Us in writing. We will also notify you by email at the time of sending the Invoice of any customisations requested by you that may take a considerable amount of time to fulfil.
2.6 Once you have confirmed that the Order details that We have are correct, We will provide you with an estimated dispatch and delivery date. Please note that any dispatch and/or delivery date provided are estimates only and the time of delivery is not of the essence.
2.7 We endeavour to meet the following delivery time estimates for completion of the entirety of your Order, but at busy times and depending upon the number and extent of customisations required, deliveries may take longer:
2.7.1 up to 100 Products, around 2-3 weeks from the date of your Order;

The Invoice will also confirm the options available to you for making payment in respect of your Order which include secure online payment by credit or debit card, bank transfer or cheque, in accordance with clause 8.10.
2.9 The Invoice provided will only relate to Products that are ready to be dispatched to you in this shipment. Where some Products from your Order cannot be crafted or are not ready for dispatch for whatever reason, they will be added to your next Order or shipment.
2.10 We will endeavour to confirm your Order and issue the Invoice within 24 hours of receipt by Us of an Order, or less if the Order is received within normal working hours in the United Kingdom (the “UK”). However, please allow up to 48 hours for Us to check and process your Order, and up to 72 hours where an Order is placed over a weekend or public holiday.
2.11 Subject to clause 2.12 , once you receive the Invoice, We must receive payment in accordance with clause 10 should be made to Us promptly and in any event within 7 calendar days of your receipt of the Invoice in full for both the price of the Products ordered and any delivery or other applicable charges (if any) before We accept your Order. Once your Invoice is paid, then your Products will be dispatched to you in accordance with clause 4 scheduled for crafting and will be hand-crafted by one of Our leathersmiths. The contract between Us will only be formed and these Terms will be deemed accepted by you once cleared payment from you is received by Us in respect of your Order including any delivery or other applicable charges.
2.12 At Our sole discretion, We may agree to provide credit to you in respect of any Products that you order from Us. In such circumstances, the provisions of clause 10 shall apply in respect of such Products.

2.15 You may make a change to the Order for Products insofar as they are not specially made to order at any time before We dispatch the Products by contacting Us, except in the case of made-to-measure Products. Where this means a change in the total price of the Products, We will notify you of the amended price in writing. You may be able to cancel the Order strictly in accordance with clause 11 in these circumstances.
2.16 We reserve the right to refuse or decline any Order at Our sole discretion.
2.17 Our Products come in many different leathers and finishes. We can supply you with some sample swatches following receipt of a request in writing from you.
3 OUR PRODUCTS
3.1 Our Site is solely for the promotion of Our Products and the images of the Products on Our Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although We have made every effort to display the colours accurately, We cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. The Products that you receive from Us may vary slightly from those images.
3.2 Although We have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because Our Products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on Our Site have a 2% tolerance. In addition, you should note that We cannot guarantee a uniformed appearance to each Product as they are handmade from natural materials and slight imperfections may occur. These imperfections include (but are not limited to), the natural grain of the leather, texture and colour variations, natural wrinkles, markings and scars.
3.3 Once an Order for Products and payment in respect of it is received, the Order details will be added to the workflow system list for the next available day and the Products ordered will usually be crafted within 3 to 7 calendar days of Our receipt of payment from you for your Order, depending upon the customisation options chosen by you. Highly customised and bespoke Products can take between 14 and 42 calendar days to create. We generally recommend that you allow at least 30 calendar days for complete fulfilment and crafting of the Products from the date We receive payment from you in respect of your Order, but We will confirm an estimated dispatch and delivery date in email sending the Invoice. Please note however that any dispatch and/or delivery estimate given are estimates only and the time of delivery is not of the essence. We will notify you by email at the time of sending the Invoice of any customisations requested by you that may take a considerable amount of time to fulfil. Once your Order is completed, it will go through Our quality control procedure and will then be packaged and weighed, and the dimensions of the package of Products taken so that We can calculate the shipping cost and confirm this to you in the Invoice unless you have notified Us in writing that you will organise your own collection and shipping of the Products. If you are not satisfied with the amount of the shipping charges that We confirm to you, We can reissue the Invoice without any shipping charges and you may then make your own arrangements for collection and shipping of your Order. International delivery Orders will attract an administrative fee of £25 where We are required to deal with another carrier and assist with their paperwork and documents dispatched for delivery to you in accordance with clause 4.
4 DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS
4.1 We will deliver the Product(s) ordered by you together with a hard copy of the Invoice, to the address which you give for delivery when you make your Order. If any of the details you have given to Us in your delivery address are incorrect, We are not liable for any items which have not been or are not received.
4.2 Each delivery of Products will be accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant Order numbers, the type and quantity of the Products (including the Product code number where applicable), special storage instructions (if any) and if the Order is being delivered in instalments, the outstanding balance of Products remaining to be delivered.
4.3 Please note that timescales for delivery and delivery charges will vary depending on the availability of the Products and your address. Our Products are delivered worldwide, but Our workshops are based solely in the UK. Please allow extra time for deliveries to be made outside the UK.
4.4 Once an Order has been shipped, you will receive an email from Us notifying you of the dispatch of the Product(s) (the “Dispatch Notification Email”). All Products are shipped using a fully traceable carrier and you will be provided the relevant shipping and tracking details in Our Dispatch Notification Email to enable you to track the Products being shipped.
4.5 Deliveries within the UK are shipped using APC overnight couriers and generally arrive at their destination on the next working day following Our issuing of the Dispatch Notification Email.
4.6 International orders are sent using DHL Air Express. If specifically requested by you to do so, We can send international orders using Royal Mail, however, this service is not tracked once the Products leave the UK and therefore any failure or delay in delivery is your sole responsibility.
4.7 Our experience is that when using DHL Air Express, deliveries to the United States of America and Central Europe usually take about 2-3 working days to arrive at their destination; deliveries to Eastern Europe and Asia usually take about 4-5 working days to arrive at their destination; and deliveries to Australasia and South America usually take about 5-7 working days to arrive at their destination. Working days means that Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays are not included in this period.
4.8 When using Our standard delivery service, please allow between 10 and 14 calendar days for delivery of your Order.
4.9 Where you require your Order to be delivered quicker than Our standard delivery service We also operate a priority service at an additional charge which you can request when placing your Order. We will confirm any requested prioritised dispatch and cost to you on the relevant Invoice.
4.10 When placing an Order with Us, you can supply Us with delivery instructions such as “leave the Products with our neighbour at number 82, if no answer” and We will pass these instructions on to the courier on your behalf.
4.11 The courier will call you on the contact number (if any) that you provided when placing your Order if they have any issues with making delivery of any Product. A signature is required in order to make and take delivery of the Products.
4.12 All deliveries are scheduled for weekday delivery unless requested otherwise by you when placing your Order. Please speak to Our customer services team if you require a quote for a Saturday delivery.
4.13 If no one is available at your address (or at any alternative address notified by you when placing the Order) to take delivery of the Product(s) the courier will leave you a note at the address set out in the Order to confirm that they have attempted to deliver the Product(s) and requesting that you contact them to rearrange delivery.
4.14 Occasionally Our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control (as defined in clause 12.214.2). If We are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, We will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
4.15 Delivery of an Order shall be completed when We deliver the Product(s) to the address (or at any alternative address) that you gave Us in your Order.
4.16 If We are not able to deliver the whole of the Order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock, We will deliver the Order in instalments. We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this. However, if you ask Us to deliver the Order in instalments, We may charge you extra delivery costs. Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract governed by these Terms. If We are late delivering an instalment or one instalment is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other instalment.
4.17 The Product(s) will be your responsibility and owned by you from the point at which We or the courier first attempt delivery, whether you (or any nominated alternative) take delivery or not.
4.18 Where any Product is to be delivered internationally you will be responsible for any and all tax, duties and/or any other amounts payable in respect of the shipping of the Product(s) into the relevant country.

9 RETURN OF PRODUCTS

9.2 When returning a Product, please ensure that it is in a securely wrapped parcel with suitable packaging to ensure that the Product does not get damaged in transit whilst being returned. All strapping should be tucked neatly inside the Product and not twisted. You should include written details with the Product being returned that clearly shows your order number, name and address, the reason for the return of the Product (e.g. “It’s too big/small” or “The colour looks different” etc.) and the action you would like Us to take (e.g. “I’d like a smaller size”, “I’d like the same satchel in a darker brown”, “I’d like a refund” etc.).
9.3 Should a Product be received which is not suitably packed for transit We reserve the right to refuse a refund or repair on the grounds that insufficient care has been taken to return the Product to us. If you have returned the Product for a refund, We may decide against this if we are unable to repair and resell. If you have returned the item for repair, We will attempt to complete all repairs as expected, but We may charge for repairs caused by damage in transit (in addition to any charges we have quoted to your for repair, if that is what you have returned the item to us for). We will contact you if that is the case and gain your agreement to full payment before we commence the work.
9.4 When returning the Product, always ensure that you obtain a receipt or proof of posting from the relevant delivery agent so that if the Product does not arrive with Us, you can prove that it was actually posted back to Us and when.
9.5 Products can be returned to Our Workshop at the following address:
The Leather Satchel Co.
Interchange Business Park
Knowsley L36 6JG
9.6 Once the Product is received by Us, We will confirm this to you via email within 48 hours of Our receipt and the actions that We will take. If you have any queries regarding the Product returned, please do not hesitate to contact Us and We will endeavour to assist you.
9.7 Exchanges and repairs are usually processed within 10-14 calendar days of Our receipt of the returned Product, but please allow up to 31 calendar days depending upon the exact issue. Most refunds are processed within just a few days of Our receipt of the returned Product, but please allow up to 21 calendar days from the date of Our receipt of the returned Product. Any refund payable to you shall be made in accordance with clause 11.89.8.
9.8 Once you decide to return a Product to Us for whatever reason, the item is your responsibility until it reaches Us and you must not use it and must take reasonable care of it while it remains in your possession. The Product must be returned to Us in a saleable condition as received by you, intact and undamaged as soon as is reasonably possible but in any event within 30 calendar days of your receipt of delivery.

10 PRICE AND PAYMENT
10.1 The price of the Products will be as quoted on Our Site from time to time. Our prices may change from time to time, but price changes will not affect any Order(s) that We have confirmed with you.
10.2 These prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of your payment of the Invoice, We will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
10.3 The prices for the Products exclude any delivery costs (if applicable), which will be added to the total amount due. Our delivery charges are as set out in these Terms and will be confirmed in the Invoice issued to you.
10.4 It is always possible that, despite Our best efforts, some of the Products or delivery costs We sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of Our dispatch procedures so that, where the Products’ correct price or the delivery cost is less than Our stated price, We will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, We do not have to provide the Products or send them to you at the incorrect (lower) price. If the Product’s correct price or the delivery cost is higher than the price stated in Our Site or in these Terms, We will contact you as soon as possible to tell you about the error and We will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Products at the correct price or amending your delivery specification (where the mispricing relates to delivery charges), or cancelling your Order. We will not process your Order until We have your instructions. If We are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, We will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing. We will refund you the full amount paid by you as soon as is reasonable if you have already made a payment to Us.
10.5 You may pay for Products using the following methods:
10.5.1 a debit or credit card (We accept all major credit and debit cards); or PayPal; or
10.5.3 a cheque; or
10.5.4 a telegraphic transfer direct to Our bank account (details of which are available on request).
10.6 Subject to clause 2.11, Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is required to be made before your Order is accepted dispatched by Us and in advance of Our starting to manufacture the Product(s).
10.7 Any charges or fees payable to any financial institution or bank for processing payment in respect of your Order are your responsibility and must be paid by you. Any refund payable by Us to you will not include an amount in respect of any such charges or fees.
10.8 Where any credit is provided to you by Us pursuant to clause 2.11 , you shall pay the Invoice in full and in cleared funds in accordance with the terms of credit set out on the Invoice or as otherwise agreed between us in writing and the provisions of this clause 10 in respect of payment generally.
10.9 Time of payment shall be of the essence in respect of any payments to be made by you to Us pursuant to these Terms.
10.10 If you fail to make payment due to Us on the due date for payment (the “ Due Date”), then you shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above the base rate of Lloyds Bank plc from time to time. Such interest will accrue on a daily basis from the Due Date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgement. You shall be required to pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
10.11 You shall pay all amounts due under these Terms and any contract with Us in full and without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and you shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Us in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. We may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies We may have, set off any amount owing to Us by you against any amount payable by Us to you.
11 YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
11.1 The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 will apply to these Terms. These regulations entitle consumers to cancel an Order during the period set out in clause 11.4 below, and receive a refund. There are exceptions to which this cancellation right does not apply, which include but are not limited to made-to-order or customised Products. All Our Products are hand-made to order. Once you place an Order and confirm the details in writing for any customised Products and make payment in respect of it, We will take that as your confirmation to Us to commence making your Product, in which case due to the very individual nature of customised products which cannot be re-sold, you will no longer be able to cancel the Order.
11.2 There may be occasions when We are selling Products, which although they are handmade, are not made specially to order (for example, samples or standard Products which have not been customised). These Products will be identified as such, so that you will know this is the case when you place your Order. In this case, the right to cancel referred to in clause 11.1 will apply. Your legal right to cancel an Order starts from the date on which We receive payment in full in respect of your Order in accordance with clause 2.4, which is when the contract between Us is formed and is available for a period of 7 working days. If the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 7 working days, starting from the day after the day you receive the Products in which you may cancel your Order.
11.3 As a gesture of goodwill however, where a Product is not customised, the Order or part of it may be cancelled at any point before Our dispatch of the Products and any amounts paid by you will be refunded. If the Product has already been dispatched, then you will have to wait for the Products to be delivered and then return the Products to Us using the returns procedure set out above.
11.4 If you want to cancel an order for a customised Product, then it is recommended that you contact Our customer services team to establish if the Product has been completed or customised. If not, then We may be able to cancel your Order at Our sole discretion. If the Product has been made past the point where We can use the parts for other Products, then unfortunately We will not be able to cancel your Order.
11.5 To cancel an Order or part of it, please email Us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. We will endeavour to confirm cancellation of your Order within 24 hours of receipt by Us of your cancellation notice. However, please allow up to 48 hours for Us to check and process the cancellation, and up to 72 hours where cancellation of an Order or part of it is placed over a weekend or public holiday
11.6 If We agree to cancel your Order or part of it, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Products and any applicable delivery charges paid. We will process the refund due to you as soon as is reasonably practicable and, in any case, within 30 calendar days of the day on which you gave Us notice of cancellation as described in clause 11.4. If you returned the Products to Us because they were faulty or mis-described, please see clause 11.7.
11.7 If you have returned the Products to Us under this clause 11 because they are faulty or mis-described, We will either offer you a replacement Product or refund the full price of the defective Product (if paid by you), any applicable delivery charges relating to the specific Product, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to Us.
11.8 We will make any refund to you in the manner in which payment was made by you to Us.
11.9 If the Products were delivered to you:
11.9.1 unless the Products are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 11.7), or where you are relying on the Craftsmanship Guarantee in clause 5, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to Us; and
11.9.2 you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
12 OUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
12.1 If We have to cancel an Order for Products or part of it (including made-to-measure or customised Products) before the Products are delivered where We have already started work on your Order for made-to-measure Products by the time We have to cancel under this clause 12, We will not charge you anything and you will not have to make any payment to Us.

13.2 If We fail to comply with these Terms, We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of Our breach of the Terms or Our negligence, but We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the limitations set forth in this paragraph may not apply to you. If the foregoing limitations are held inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, then, subject to any obligations under the non-excludable provisions and to the fullest extent permitted by law, Our maximum liability to you for any type of damages shall be limited to the actual amount paid by you for the relevant Products.
13.6 We do not exclude or limit in any way Our liability for:
13.6.1 death or personal injury caused by Our negligence or the negligence of Our employees or agents;
13.6.2 fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
13.6.3 breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession); and
