- problems in processing your payment;

Processing your order
Since we process many orders each week, merchandise availability is always subject to change. You should allow approximately five (5) months for delivery of your Product.

Following receipt of an order, we will confirm by email the specific deadline for processing your order.
You can contact us at any time at Customer Service to know the progress of the manufacture of your Product.

Wood. Each tree is unique. The grain of the wood and the colour of each piece vary from one to the other. The vain of wood is like the fingerprint of a tree. We select each piece of wood we use with the greatest care. All the wood used to make a suitcase always comes from the same tree.
