Once items are dispatched, the delivery times specified on our shipping page apply.

If you've waited the maximum estimated delivery time for your area and your order has not arrived, please email our support team with your order details at email@example.com If we can't track down your order for you and it's clear it really has gone missing, we’ll send out a replacement using express delivery wherever it’s available, at our discretion.Can I cancel my order?
Yes of course you can - the quicker you can email us and request the cancellation (firstname.lastname@example.org) the more chance we have of being able to cancel the order before the shipping has commenced, and the quicker funds can be refunded. If the order has already been dispatched we'll need to process the cancellation as a standard refund. This means you'll need to wait for the order to arrive, pay for return shipping and once we have received the order back in it's original packaging and unused, we can process the refund of cost of items (excludes any shipping fees paid). The exception is our e-gift cards - these are sent straight away, and cannot be returned.I forgot to order something - can I add items to my order after I have hit the 'confirm order' button?
If you’d like to add an item to your order please email us at email@example.com within 24 hours from the time of purchase and we’ll see what we can do. Keep in mind the earlier you contact us the more likely we’ll be able to sneak an extra item into the same package - if the original order has already been packed and dispatched it’s likely you’ll need to pay for additional shipping to send the extra items in a second package - but we'll let you know either way before we proceed.
Do I need to treat my leather bag?
The leather used to make our bags is pre-treated so it’s not necessary to add any additional protection or treatment. However if you’d like to prolong the life of the leather you can of course use an additional leather treatment from a reputable store.
Can I clean my leather bag?
If you can avoid it, we’d suggest refraining from cleaning it to ensure the material isn’t damaged. Life, however, gets messy sometimes and if you’ve got a conspicuous bit of dirt on it you just need to get rid of, then try a leather wipe. Gently wipe the area and allow to dry (out of direct sunlight). If you need further help we suggest taking the bag to a leather specialist.
Can I clean my strap?
For the thin leather strap that comes with the bag, please follow the advice above regarding cleaning your leather bag. For the patterned straps, we suggest using warm soapy water (using a mild detergent) on a damp cloth and give the dirty area a good wipe.
Where is your leather from?
All our bags are made from 100% European sourced Dollaro leather and made by craftsmen in Italy. Dollaro leather retains the natural texture and grain of the leather, resulting in a soft and supple leather with the classic pebble texture that is beloved by fashionistas the world over.
Do you use vegan leather in any of your bags?
At the moment the answer is no, however we do take an environmentally-aware approach. Note that a product that is ‘vegan leather’ does not necessarily mean the product is an environmentally friendly one. Generally speaking, ‘vegan leathers’ are synthetic or faux leathers. The most commonly used materials for synthetic leathers are PVC (poly vinyl chloride) and PU (polyurethane), which are plastic based materials that can’t be recycled nor biodegrade any time soon, and often use highly toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Of course there are also some more sustainable, natural materials used to make Vegan Leather, like cork, kelp, pineapple leaves and even apple peel. Unfortunately our initial investigation into these options resulted in them not being viable for our business at this time.
One other quality we’re looking for in any vegan leather we will consider using for future Roodle products, is durability. Vegan leather is often a lot thinner and doesn’t tend to wear as long vs a good quality leather which can last decades if treated with care. At Roodle we’re dedicated to ensuring that you get the quality and longevity you would expect from an expensive branded handbag, even though you’re not paying the hefty price tag.
