PRODUCT WARRANTY AND PRODUCT CAREView
At this time, Cuyana’s warranty policy is only available for US orders. For any international orders, we will handle on a case by case basis.
What is Cuyana’s warranty policy?
Cuyana is committed to the quality of our products with a two year warranty policy. We are happy to handle complimentary repairs for issues resulting in manufacturing defects within this two year period. If items cannot be repaired, we will replace the item as long as the stock is available. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear.
If general wear and tear has affected the products’ appearance, we suggest visiting a leather care professional for refurbishment.
How does Cuyana handle repairs?
Products that are within the two year warranty period are eligible for repairs free of charge. Proof of purchase from Cuyana will be required for any repair services. Each case will be dealt with on an individual basis and repairs may take up to 3-4 weeks, excluding shipping time. International orders are not eligible for repairs given the shipping and customs.
For products that are outside of the warranty, Cuyana is happy to offer repair services at a cost. Customers will be responsible for shipping and the repair costs. The repair costs will vary based on the service needed. Lead time is 3-4 weeks for repairs, excluding shipping time.
Can Cuyana repair monograms?
Some monograms on leather goods can be repaired and this is handled on a case by case basis. The monogram is done by hand with gold foil and fading may occur.
Is there anything I should do before using my Cuyana bag?
Before using your leather item, we recommend that you use a leather protector to preserve it, but this is not a necessary step. Please be sure to use a suede-specific product on any suede section of a bag. These items can be purchased at any drugstore or at a shoe-repair location.
How should I care for my Cuyana leather?
For light cleaning on any non-suede section, we recommend spot cleaning with a leather cleaner, which can be purchased at a drugstore or cobbler. Please test any products you are applying to the bag in an inconspicuous spot first to make sure you are okay with the final result before applying to the whole bag. A cobbler or leather professional will be able to deep clean your bag in the event that is needed.
My bag has some variations. Is this normal?
Leather is a natural hide and some pieces may have variations in the material. This is characteristic of the raw material and should not be considered an imperfection, but rather a unique indicator that your bag is of the highest quality. Creasing in some items is unavoidable during manufacturing and shipment, but should diminish as you use the bag.
Will your bags show scratching?
Scratching and damage can occur while using any leather product, so please be sure to use your items with care. Cuyana is not responsible for damage caused by normal wear and tear, such as scratching or staining on light-colored bags.
How should I store my items?
When not in use, please be sure to store in a cool, dry area in the dustbag provided with your purchase. In the event that your bag gets wet, please be sure to air dry before further use or storage.
If you would like to stop receiving our catalogs please CLICK HERE to enter your address and we'll make sure you're taken off the list for future catalogs. Due to the lead time for our catalogs you may receive one additional catalog before the opt-out will take effect.
