"Genuine" does not mean 100% authentic leather, as is specified in our blog posts. In our leather category, we carry 3 types of leather —Full-Grain Leather, Crazy Horse Leather, and Vegan Leather.
While our bags are already competitively-priced, we do offer a cheaper range of non-real leather, or vegan leather, to accommodate customers of all budgets. Vegan leather bags are produced with a wide variety of materials, among them PU (polyurethane). The market for vegan leather has become much bigger and more popular over the years, especially as a type of ethically-sourced, sustainable fashion. While we don't endorse any particular fashion movement, our primary goal continues to be to provide unique, attractive bags for you at affordable prices.
We will always specify which type of leather a bag is made from in the product descriptions.
You will see it listed in the following formats:
- Made of durable, water-resistant vegan leather
- Made of high-quality full-grain leather
- Made of high-quality crazy horse leather
You can read more about vegan leather in our blog article that addresses the question: What is Faux Leather?
To know what kind of leather is our bag made of, we will always list it down at our product description. You will see it listed normally as below:
Most of our high-end leather duffle bags have been treated to protect the material from water damage. However, the protective materials may subside over time, so it's recommended that you occasionally add some wax-based, waterproofing leather treatment to your product after extended use.
If your leather bag gets wet, dry it carefully in a warm, dry area, but remove from direct heat which may cause it to dry out and lose its flexibility.
Many of our bags are made of leather, which is a natural material and can look a bit different from bag to bag. Moreover, leather bags are manually treated with oils and waxes, contributing to the uniqueness and authenticity of each bag. Besides that, various monitors display colors a bit differently. Please note that variations due to the natural process of manufacturing the bags are not considered defects.
Leather grain can soak up strong smells, mostly from the tanning process in the factory. Removing these smells from the leather can be done in the following ways:
- Crumple up several sheets of newspaper in a box and place the leather item in the paper. Close - the box, and leave it sealed for 1-3 days.
- Use the product as often as possible, especially exposing it to the outside air. This will age the bag and soften the material, effectively opening the pores of the leather and releasing the bad odor.
- We don't advise using chemicals to wipe bags down, unless such solvents are naturally made or specifically designed for leather cleaning. Baking soda and vinegar are a few home remedies that may be used for odor removal, but try only on a small section first to see how material reacts, and especially coloration.

Tax laws differ from country to country and sometimes your order may be subject to local tax or import duty. Additional fees such as customs charges may also apply. This is the responsibility of the customer and is out of our control. Under no circumstances will Yonder Bags refund or pay for these fees and it is the customer’s responsibility to confirm what charges there may be prior to placing any order with Yonder Bags.
We accept returns within 30 days of purchase. If 30 days have passed since your initial purchase, we unfortunately won't be able to offer any refunds or exchanges. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused, in the same condition you received it, and returned with original packaging. To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.
To avoid unnecessary return hassles, we encourage you to contact us and inquire about the products you intend to purchase if you have any questions or concerns.
If you would like to return or exchange an item for any reason, we request that you contact us first so that we can handle it in the most efficient way possible. To return your product, you should ship to the mailing address we'll provide via email. You will be responsible for paying your own shipping costs upon returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable.
Depending on your location, timing may vary regarding how long it may take for an exchanged product to reach you. Items usually ship within a week or two, but note that delays are possible that are beyond our control. Please allow up to 4 weeks for items to reach you. If you have any questions regarding the shipping status of your items, do not hesitate to email us at: info@YonderBags.com.
If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can't guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.
If 1 week after we have approved your refund you still haven't received it, please contact us at info@YonderBags.com.
We work with highly-rated suppliers, and each bag is thoroughly checked for defects before it is shipped. However, since our bags are handmade and therefore more vulnerable than cheaply-made products, defects are sometimes unavoidable.
As a result, we've established a warranty policy to address the issue, and hope to give our customers a top-notch experience.
Sometimes, goods can be damaged in transit. If you received your bag broken or deficient in any way, contact us immediately with a photo of the defect, and we will issue you a new bag.
If after a certain time frame of usage (within three months) your bag begins to break down, email us with a photo of the defect, and we can resolve it by issuing a partial refund to you as a "fixing fee" (enabling you to have it repaired at a local leather or bag shop at a reduced cost). We have found this approach to be the most practical, as we do not currently have local operations in all of the countries we serve.
