Authentic Hester van Eeghen
Hester van Eeghen products are handcrafted in Italy with the highest-quality materials, design and workmanship. All Hester van Eeghen products are individually controlled for quality by Hester van Eeghen and her specialists. In accordance with old-world tradition, each authentic Hester van Eeghen bag and wallet will have her name embossed directly into the leather.
Each of our leather goods, especially handbags, has unique qualities and are created to the highest standards of design and quality. Leather has a life of its own and natural imperfections that add to the character of the material. Leather ages just like people, changing over time, reflecting the trials of life and becoming attractive in a new way. The raw material components have been developed using unique tooling techniques and are very delicate. We recommend handling this product with great care. Pulling, snagging or excessive surface abrasion should be avoided. Deep or bright colors could transfer onto light colored garments. White and light colored products are susceptible to dirt, marks and color transfer from dyes in clothing. Care should be taken to keep the product away from extreme sources of heat and to protect from rain. If the product does get wet allow to dry naturally away from direct heat. Any cleaning should be carried out with extreme care using a damp cloth. When not in use we recommend storing the product in the cloth bag provided.
HVE US is happy to offer complimentary repairs that result from a manufacturing defect within one year of purchase for products purchased on HVEUS.com. Regular wear-and-tear is not considered a manufacture defect, such as dirt, scuff marks, scratches and discoloration. If you wish to have HVE US repair your item, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your repair request. Please allow 4 weeks for a repair assessment and fee estimate. We will inform you of the best way to proceed. When sending a product for repair, please enclose a detailed repair request and your contact information. We recommend that you package the item securely and ship the product via insured mail as HVE US will not be responsible for problems with delivery or if damage occurs during shipping. Detailed repair information and a repair charge estimate will be sent to you for approval once the assessment has been completed. Repair time can take up to 12 weeks, but completion time can not be guaranteed due to the diverse nature of repairs and the craftsmanship required. Please be advised that HVE US cannot guarantee the availability of original parts for all products.
