Leather is a natural product and slight color variations between the image on our website and the product are to be expected.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your shopping basket are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers. We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that the item ordered is out of stock.
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
The completion of the contract between you and Mandarabags.com will be an email sent to you to confirm that the goods have been dispatched.
The sale contract is therefore concluded in Durban, South Africa and the language of the contract is English.

These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country, therefore you are advised to check the latest applicable local requirements in your country before placing an order.
