My Raff bag had a scratch/spot/wrinkle when I received it, what should I do?

Raff bags are made with natural vegetable tanned leather, devoid of chemicals. As such they remain unsealed at the end of the tanning process. These leathers are safer to use and do not pollute the water bodies with harmful chemicals. The unsealed leather allows scratches to accumulate, and the gentle tanning solutions allow natural marks in the hide to show. We consider any scratch, wrinkle or mark that is visible to be beautiful and completely natural. No two Raff bags look the same and each bag is very unique. It is important to realise that the wrinkles, marks and scratches are intended, and will further develop with time and use.

Will my parcel be charged customs and import charges?

Your parcel may incur customs or import duties once it reaches its destination country, which have to be borne by you. Raff has no control over these charges and we can’t tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.

As we ship out of Netherlands and India, no custom or import duties will be charged on parcels shipping to the EU and India.
