Shipping import fees / Customs charges

For customers outside the EU we offer our products tax free. Please note that shipments are subject to import fees and taxes which are due on arrival. You are seen as an importer into your country and therefore need to pay customs duties and tax.
It is not possible for us to determine these charges as they differ from country to country. If you need information about these charges please contact your local customs office. These costs will be collected by the transport company.

We will only put the really value of our products on any official document. Please don’t ask us to put a different price on the documents.

Receiving deliveries

We suggest that you are at the agreed shipping address on the day of delivery, as shipping companies will require a signature. Please note that if you agree with a shipping company that your order is left with a neighbor or at your address without being signed for, we are unable to take responsibility if the delivery is lost or stolen.

Maintenance & Care

Our leather is hard wearing and at the same time extremely soft, it will last for many years but it does have limits. Please avoid extreme temperatures or overly harsh use and direct contact with wet and moist surfaces. Over time you may have to mend and repair small issues (they are well made products but not indestructible).

Because of the natural character of our leather tanning process, pigment may transfer on other garments. Especially with darker colors. Please use discretion when wearing lighter colored clothing.

Regardless of this, if you should not be 100% happy with your purchase, or need care or maintenance advice, please contact us at john@vandorst1968.com and we will advise accordingly.
