We hope that your product reaches you in great condition. If you think it’s damaged or faulty, please contact us on 0724329298 or karin@forloveandleather.co.zaand we will work with you to sort things out.
If you wish to cancel your order before you receive our confirmation email, please email karin@forloveandleather.co.za with “Cancellation” as the subject of your email. If we receive this email in time, we will not send the products to you and will not charge you for the products that you ordered.

If you wish to cancel your order after you have received a confirmation email from us, you will need to wait until you receive the products and then follow our returns procedure.

Under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have a “cooling off period” of seven days from the day on which you receive the products. In this time, you can decide that you do not wish to keep the products. If you decide not to keep them, you must let us know by emailing karin@forloveandleather.co.za before the seven- day period ends and then return the products to us in the same condition as they were received by you at your own cost. NO PERSONALIZATION of our products will be allowed. Please note: Sale items will not be refunded, returned or exchanged for the same or any other item.  

If a free gift or promotional item was enclosed as part of your purchase, then this should also be returned, or the retail cost of the item will be deducted from your refund.

PLEASE NOTE: If a product has a factory defect or the wrong size/color was sent by the seller, a full refund / correct product will be sent to the buyer at the seller’s cost. In the case where the buyer would like to exchange the product for any other reason apart from a factory default, all expenses (courier cost, price increase on product) will be for the buyers account. No refunds will be done in the case where the buyer has ordered incorrect size, color or style or if they received an item as a gift. No refunds will be done where a client has received items as per their order and then decides to exchange or change the item. Should the customer request a replacement, the cost is for the buyer’s account.

Should products be damaged or with factory defects, high resolution photos of the problems must be provided for assessment. Once assessment has been concluded we will communicate with the client should they require a new product or refund. Should the incorrect size be ordered a handling fee of 20% of the value of the product will be added and ALL courier costs will be for the buyer’s account.  In the event where a surcharge is billed, the full amount of the surcharge fee has to be paid in full by the buyer, for the package to be released. List of towns that are charged with a surcharge fee, are available on request.

Please note that items are returned at the customers’ expense and we recommend that your returns should be sent by recorded delivery, we will not take responsibility for goods which do not reach us.
