Great question! We recommend regularly protecting, moisturising and cleaning your Saben wallet or bag.
Saben uses top grain leather which is selected for it's quality and enduring nature. Being a natural fiber it is naturally biodegradable unlike PU & other plastic based alternatives.
Saben's leather is sourced from a tannery with a Gold standard certification, appointed by the LWG(Leather Working Group), an independent body which visits and audits factories globally, and inspects their environmental impacts. This leather is sourced local to our makers, but hides are from Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe.
At Saben our goal is to be by your side, for many years to come. By choosing a durable, hardwearing product like leather, and by caring for your piece you will enjoy the longevity and sustainable nature of leather.
We currently work with two small family-run factories in Guangzhou, China. Designer and founder Roanne visits twice yearly* to work alongside our sampling rooms, and to explore new techniques with the leather artisans. We also have a local Saben representative, Ting, who is based in China and visits the factories regularly on our behalf.
While we can't always be on the ground, we request independent audits to ensure they are meeting SEDEXstandards for ethical supply chains and employment. This is alongside the following ISO standards which are internationally agreed by experts as best practice: ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 14001:2015.
Our makers are our long-term partners, and an extension of the Saben team. As we strive to do better in the sustainability space, we are working closely with our makers to develop changes at a production level to innovate processes, reduce impact and be accountable for minimising waste and packaging.
*Covid-19 prohibited Roanne’s 20/21 visits
Thanks for noticing ;) In bag world, is there anything worse that a black bag, black lining, black phone, black wallet, and your are rummaging about in the bottom of your bag endlessly looking for a hair tie? The Solution: Enter Saben's famous brown lining. Dark enough to hide any mishaps, but bright enough to reflect light and make finding your things a breeze. We have selected the perfect shade of brown which compliments every colour.
Occasionally we will use black zips, and black lining - but our brown zip tape has become our signature.
We use light gold hardware, because it compliments both Gold and Silver jewellery. We think we've found the perfect balance for eveyone to wear.
You'll notice our hardware looks slightly different depending what light or coloured leather it's next to.
Saben products are covered by a 12 month warranty. This warranty covers any fault of manufacture. It does not cover general wear and tear.
If there is a fault or issue with your Saben piece we must first assess the issue either by photos or in person. As each individual bag is made by hand, from time to time faults may occur in the manufacturing process. Saben bags are built for longevity and in an effort to make sustainable fashion – we always opt to repair first.
Our warranty process is as follows:
1. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with images of your bag and proof of purchase.
NB. If you purchased via a stockist - please contact the store you purchased from first.
2. If we can repair the fault/damage we reserve the right to first repair the bag.
3. If we can’t repair the bag and we believe it is fault of manufacture we will replace with the same or similar bag.
4. If we can’t replace the item, we will refund or issue store credit.
Repairs are free for 1 year after the purchase date. Thereafter, we charge a repair fee which is based on the type of repair. To have a bag repaired we must first obtain proof of purchase. Bags will not be accepted without a proof of purchase.
Most repairs take between 1 - 2 weeks to complete, though some may take longer depending on the issue. We do our very best to get your bag back to you as quickly as possible.
