Production Times

All Karu Atelier products are made to order as part of our sustainability efforts. All products have 4 different colour choices, check out our product pages to see which colors we have available. Please allow 5 business days* for production time. Note that this might be more for larger items such as the Ilmarinen Briefcase and large travel bag.

* When you place an order during a sale, the production time might increase slightly due to increased demand. We are just a team of 2 people making all of our leather goods and our sales tend to be very popular. But rest assured: we are working as fast as we can to get everything done.

Since all our products are made to order, if there are changes or additions you would like in the design, this is always possible. If you would like to request a custom product or colour outside of our standard collections, please contact us or message us via the Karu Atelier Facebook page. We will work together with you to create the perfect item. Additional charges may apply for custom colors, larger customisation, and entire custom products. For custom product requests, please allow 3 to 4 weeks production time.

Product disclaimer

As leather is a natural resource, each hide will be slightly different and unique. The leather has undergone an entire other journey before it became your bag. Small scars, scratches and color differences may appear. This adds to the ‘Karu’ character of the products, and makes each item unique. As everyone’s screen is also different, products might appear slightly different on photos than their actual color.
