- Is there a warranty on Von Baer products?
We craft our bags for a lifetime of satisfaction. We provide a 2-year warranty that covers manufacturer’s defects for two years after the original purchase date from an authorized dealer. Basically, if there are defects in materials or workmanship – we will replace your product for free. Mercedes-Benz is a great classy car, but it will disappoint you if you treat it badly. Same applies to Von Baer products. Exposure of our products to any harsh chemicals like salt, chlorine or conditioners that result in corrosion, discoloration or a breakdown of the integrity of the material, or damage caused by pool water exposure, road rash, etc., is considered abuse and will void the warranty. So will any mechanical damage resulting from overstuffing, stretching the bag out, etc. Treat your Von Baer bag right, and it will look even better over time.
- What type of leather is used?
Our bags are made of real premium class leather only.
We craft most of our products from calf leather, while some specific models are made from horse leather. Not every type of leather is superior enough for creating a product of highest quality. Von Baer’s special method of leather treatment is one of the key factors which make us different. The surface of our leather beautifies with use. We use the finest leather that money can buy.
Depending on the product, the type of leather used may be:
· Top grain
· Full grain
Colors displayed on different types of screens may vary from their actual tones. All of our items are crafted from a similar, but not the same, leather as shown in pictures. That is because the hide from each animal is slightly different. That is why the color may look slightly different in reality. All bags are made using natural hide and that is the reason why tiny marks may be present on the surface of the leather. These are not considered to be defects and will only enhance the beauty of the product and make your item look unique.
