Handmade with Love

All of O'Frida designs are handmade and produced by local artisans living in Bali, Indonesia. Patterns are designed, hand dyed, and embellished individually. All styles are detailed with hand tooling, hand beading, embroideries, studs and handmade lace. Therefore, occasional variations can occur due to our intricate hand made process making each design unique and one of a kind. 

Leather

All of our handbags are handmade using beautiful leather tanned and dyed in traditional methods in order to maintain its natural beauty and soft feel. Variations in color and texture are the prized characteristics of these methods. Over time, the leather will acquire a patina and may also darken due to the oils from your skin and direct sunlight, further enhancing the natural look and feel of your handbag. Please keep your bag away from prolonged intense sunlight, heat, and humidity. Please also note that dark denim or other dyed clothing items can rub off and stain tanned leathers. Exposure to water, oil, makeup, and permanent dyes like this can unfortunately leave permanent stains. In the event your handbag gets soiled other than with permanent dyes, try gently dabbing the leather with a clean, dry cloth and mild leather cream. By regularly caring for your leather your bag will preserve it’s beauty.

Fabric

All of our fabric handbags are handmade using uniquely designed fabrics trimmed with fine leather tanned in traditional methods. Fabric has been specially treated to be water and stain resistant. To care for your handbag, we recommend simply wiping both the fabric and leather trim with a clean soft, damp cloth to remove surface dirt. Please avoid ink marks, grease, permanent dyes from dark denim, and oil stain, as they are not removable and should be left alone. By regularly caring for the fabric and leather your bag will preserve its beauty.

Suede

All of our suede handbags are handmade using fine leathers tanned and dyed in traditional methods in order to maintain its natural beauty and soft texture.The unique texture of suede requires that extra consideration be taken when worn during inclement weather. Please keep your bag away from prolonged sunlight, heat, and humidity. Please note that dark denim or other dyed clothing items can rub off and stain tanned leathers. Exposure to water, oil, makeup, and permanent dyes can unfortunately stain suede handbags. In the event that your handbag gets wet or soiled other than with permanent dyes, try gently dabbing the suede with a clean, dry cloth. Allow any damp spots to dry naturally and use a suede brush to gently lift the nap and remove superficial dirt from the surface. By regularly caring for your suede your bag will preserve its natural beauty.


COLOR VARIATIONS / WEAR & TEAR

Leather : Reproduction of colors is as accurate as possible, although please note, colors available at the stores may vary slightly from what is displayed on your monitor. Also, leather is a natural material and a slight variation is bound to appear in each item.

Digital Printing on leather : Some of our items such as wallets and small leather products have digital printing on leather . As the inks used for printing react differently on each skin , slight variations might occur. Also hairline cracks might be visible over time due to general use . These are not defects but enhance the look and feel of our products over time.

Fabric : Some products have digital printing on fabric on which slight variation might occur in different parts or patches. This is a general property of the fabric which cannot be controlled.

Powder Coating : Some products in our range would have the use of powder coating on them , mainly luggage and trunks. Powder coated products are susceptible to scratches and chipping over time. These products are not meant for heavy use.

Hardware Color : Some of the products with metal hardware might tarnish or lose its shine over time due to weather conditions and usage. These are changes which occur due to the varied use and handling of the product by the customer and cannot be held against the manufacturers.

Defects and Scratches : All Nappa Dori products are hand crafted , hence no two products are identical in their absolute measurements. There might be a slight change, but minimal to the eye which therefore would not change the essence of the design.

Scratches and Marks : Scratches and marks on the leather surface are a part of the characteristics of the material. They do not qualify as defects. This can happen due to use over a period of time which enhances the look and feel of the product, adding to its vintage appeal. Some types of leather might have a slight patina on the surface due to usage and is the quality of the leather. Products are only designed seeing and keeping in mind all the above mentioned factors.
