Online Shopping Policy

We reserve the right to accept or reject orders placed with us. If we reject an order, we will let you know why within 5 business days and refund any money that you have paid us.

Whilst we endeavour to keep our stock levels up to date, there is a possibility the item you have ordered may recently be out of stock. In this unlikely event, we will refund you immediately and contact you via the email address supplied on your account. Refunds for out of stock items will be processed as quickly as possible, but may take up to three to five business days.

If there is an out of stock item you would like, please contact us for further information about resupply.

We may change the online prices at any time. In the unlikely event a product is listed at an incorrect price, we may cancel any order placed and refund the full amount of the price paid.

Once an order is posted we take no responsibility for charges incurred at receiver's end as this can vary depending on the rules of customs in each country. Please check with your local customs office prior to ordering if you are unsure.

Delivery, Returns and Refunds

Please refer to Delivery and Returns 


If there is no one available to accept your order upon delivery, you will need to contact the relevant carrier to arrange pick up (often from the carrier’s depot) or re-delivery. Common People accepts no liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense (including any indirect or consequential loss or damage) to you or any other person that is caused by missed deliveries or re-delivery. Please ensure your delivery details are correct at the time of order.


Being a natural product, Common People cannot guarantee the grain of product images on the website will match exactly that of your product.

Caring for your leather handbag:

Use an appropriate leather cream once a month to moisturise and prevent the skin from drying out; this will also protect your handbag against some general wear and tear. Please take care when wearing items such as denim or dark colours as leather is prone to migration or colour transfer. Please also take care to avoid contact with liquids. If your handbag does come in contact with excess water, it is best to leave air dry. Never use heat to accelerate the drying process. This will cause the leather to dry inconsistently. To avoid fading keep out of direct sunlight when not in use and always store in the original dust bag with stuffing to help it retain its shape.
