Terms & conditions of sale
1. Information about us
2. Your status
3. How the contract is formed between you and us
The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order unless and until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation.
4. Right to cancel
To cancel a Contract, you must email us at [email protected] and we will then provide you with a Returns Merchandise Authorisation number (“RMA Number”). You must return the Product(s) to us within fourteen days of receiving the RMA Number, in the same condition in which you received them, and in accordance with our Returns Policy (Returns and Repairs >). You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products made to your specifications or clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
5. Availability and delivery
Please note that Products are not reserved for you while they are in your shopping basket.
Delivery takes place when we or our delivery agent leaves the Products at the address that you specified for delivery when you placed the order. We will normally ask for a signature from someone at that delivery address.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation.
6. Risk and title
7. Price and payment
These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs (where applicable), which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Policy (Shipping & Delivery>).
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit, debit card or through PayPal. We accept payment by Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, American Express and MasterCard.
Please note that only one gift code can be applied per order.
Promotional codes are not valid on items featured in our charity project 7 women, 7 causes.

In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full, excluding the cost of sending the Product to you (where applicable). You will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us (unless stated otherwise in our Returns Policy (Returns and Repairs >).
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and, if you are entitled to a refund, will notify you of your refund and your RMA Number via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which we confirmed to you via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund. Products for which you are entitled to a refund due to a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the Product to you (where applicable) and the cost incurred by you in returning the Product to us (where applicable).

Terms of lifetime of free repair
DeMellier handbags carry a 12 month guarantee and a lifetime of free repair service. In the unlikely event your handbag needs repair (e.g. a lock or a handle breaks or something needs to be restitched) within 12 months of the purchase date, we would arrange the collection, repair it and ship it back to your chosen address free of charge. A receipt of purchase from one of our authorised stores will be required. Please note that normal wear and tear of the leather is excluded from the guarantee and we are unable to repair leather marks or stains (please avoid contact with clothing with strong dyes such as dark jeans as they may stain the leather), it also excludes the softening of the bag’s shape with use that often occurs with leather goods, as these are not quality faults.
Should your handbag need repairing after 12 months, we also offer a free repair service and we can provide you a quote for the shipping costs if you are unable to send the item to us or collect it. Please note that in the unlikely event a piece of hardware should break after 12 months we will replace the piece of hardware provided we still have that piece of hardware in stock, as we are unable to order additional hardware units once a style has been discontinued. Please email us at [email protected] with any repair queries.
