ILOVE YOUR DESIGNS BUT I WOULD LIKE A FABRIC I DON'T SEE ON YOUR SITE. CAN I HAVE SOMETHING MADE IN A DIFFERENT FABRIC? Of course! I love working with customers to create their special bag!* Please contact me if you are interested in a fabric not currently available in my shop... I can special order it for you**, or you can send in your own fabric. If there are designs or fabrics you would like to see in the future, let me know! I always take customer feedback into account when designing new items and ordering new fabrics for the shop. Make sure you check out the Custom Order Gallery to see past custom orders.
*Please note: orders made with special order fabrics are non-refundable. **There may be a small additional charge to order specialty fabrics.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW BAG? While Hold Fast items are well constructed, please don't throw them in the wash! Vinyls should be wiped clean with a wet, warm sponge or cloth. Faux fur and fabric linings should be spot cleaned with warm soapy water (or a Shout wipe). Do not use bleach or alcohol/acetone based cleaners. *You can also find a care card included with all items.
MY BAG HAS GOTTEN A LITTLE WEAR AND TEAR OVER TIME, CAN YOU DO A REPAIR FOR ME? Yes, I can do repairs on most normal wear and tear issues such as rivets, straps or purse feet. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you are having any issues with your bag.
I'M INTERESTED IN CARRYING YOUR LINE IN MY STORE, DO YOU WHOLESALE? Yes! I love working with retailers and have low minimums. Please fill out the Wholesale Application to receive my current linesheet and wholesale pricing.
