Terms and Policies

Terms and Policies – for E-commerce

All items are handmade by AmeliaRita in the USA.  We take great pride in the design of every product and striving to produce the best designs with the best workmanship possible.   The fabrics and leathers are important to this process.  All cork is an upholstery grade and purchased from cork growing and producing countries.  Leathers come from either the U.S. or Italy. Linings and fabrics are acquired from within the United States.



Most items posted for sale are in-stock and ready to ship.

We ship as soon as possible, in 2-4 days for the stock items.

Most items will ship through the post office and can be received in less than 1 week from the time of shipment in the USA.

Custom made bags will take more time – please contact me for estimate.

 Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. We are not responsible for delays due to customs.

  • For legal reasons (like paying taxes)

Your information is never  sold or shared with outside vendors.

Custom and personalized orders

If you saw a picture of an item that you want, but find it gone from the website, contact me.  If possible, I may be able to re- create another one or make something similar. 

Or perhaps you would like a few changes.  If you would like any bag in a different fabric or with different color straps, let us know and we will be happy to help!  Since we don’t want misunderstandings, all changes will have customers signed approval before production begins.
