~ The Mandala Leather Fringe Bag in buttery-soft dark chocolate brown deerskin leather with high-grade 32 carat natural Kingman turquoise
Handcrafted to last a lifetime...
This deerskin leather bag (Buffalo Girl-style) features hand-tooled vegetable tanned leather panels and adjustable strap, including a large Mandala leather panel in the center inlaid with a high-grade 32 carat natural Kingman turquoise cabochon from the Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona.
Long, soft and flowy hand cut deerskin leather fringe hangs 14" from bag (we can shorten this to your desired length). Hand-tooled leather adjustable strap can be worn off the shoulder or cross body. The Mandala bag is completely crafted and assembled by hand: hand cut leather and fringe, hand-tooled, hand-dyed, saddle-stitched by hand (strong & durable).
A brass magnetic clasp is located on the inside of the bag for easy access, and to keep your valuables secure. This bag is unlined, allowing the gorgeous suede side of the deerskin leather to show. One large mahogany deerskin leather pocket has been saddle-stitched inside the bag.
Can be worn off the shoulder or cross body-style due to the adjustable hand-tooled veg tanned leather strap. Leather strap is lined with soft, dark chocolate brown deerskin and will age beautifully. Includes a brass center-bar buckle in antique brass finish.
Body of Bag Measurements: 9.5”W x 11.5”L
Shoulder/Crossbody Leather Strap: adjustable from 18.5” (shortest drop length) to 22.5” (longest drop length)
Deerskin Leather Fringe: hangs 14” (we can shorten this to your desired length)
Deerskin leather is soft & supple, yet extremely durable and ages beautifully. With proper leather care (conditioning and sealing once a year), this handcrafted leather bag will last several years. We use Smith's All Natural Leather Balm from Maine for conditioning and sealing the grain side of our leather. Saddle Soap may be used on the leather for spot cleaning if needed. Deerskin leather is not damaged by water, so you can wash the leather by hand with a mild soap like Woolite. Never use a washing machine to wash your bag.

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Sorry - I no longer issue refunds for returned items, only exchanges or store credit. I also do not refund payment for initial shipping charges. Thank you for understanding. Please read each listing and my shop policies carefully before completing your purchase. If you're interested in an item, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have, or send additional photos before you complete your purchase.
If you are unhappy with your purchase, I'd be happy to provide an exchange for you (buyer pays for insured and trackable shipping both ways). Sorry - no returns, exchanges, or store credit for any perfumes, skincare products, or soap. Please read each listing carefully before making your purchase. Samples are available for purchase (depending on availability) before committing to a larger size for all of my botanical perfumes, skincare products, and handmade soap. Please contact me if you'd like a custom listing created for you for any samples, since not all samples are listed for sale in my shop.
If returning an item for exchange, buyer is responsible for return shipping charges with insurance and tracking information. Return items must be sent back, or postmarked, within 7 days of date of receipt. Original shipping charges will not be refunded. Buyer is also responsible for shipping charges to send exchange.
If returning an item for store credit, buyer is responsible for return shipping charges with insurance and tracking information. Once item is received unworn or undamaged, your store credit will be issued. Original and return shipping charges will not be refunded.
*Reworked boots - please contact me within 3 days of receiving your boots regarding fit issues, otherwise an exchange or store credit will not be issued. You may exchange them for another pair, or return them for a store credit (buyer is responsible for return shipping and shipping charges for the exchange). Original shipping charges will not be refunded. Please measure your foot before purchasing any of my reworked boots. Please make sure to contact me regarding any questions you may have as far as fit or sizing. If possible, I'll measure the sole length and ball of foot width of the boots you're interested in for a better idea of fit. I mostly use vintage boots with character that are well broken in and the sizing could be off. I try to list the sizes as accurately as possible, but there is a risk with buying online without being able to try them on first. If slightly too big, boot socks or insoles can be added for a better fit. I do offer exchanges or store credit if they don't fit. Also, buyer is responsible for return insured shipping. Once I receive the item back from you in original, unworn and undamaged condition, your exchange or store credit will be issued. Return items must be sent back, or postmarked, within 7 days of date of receipt.

I will try to work with you. I will either try to fix the item for free, or offer store credit (buyer pays for insured shipping expenses both ways). Thank you for understanding.
If your item is lost in the post for more than 30 days or arrives damaged, please contact me and I'll file an insurance claim through Etsy. Once the claim is approved, I'll issue you a refund for the price of the item only. I do not issue refunds for any postage paid. I'm sorry for this but I cannot be held responsible for what happens to items once they are shipped.
