About Us

 

www.sagebrown.co.uk is operated by SageBrown Limited (“we”, “us” or “our”). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 05373028 and have our registered office at 37, Warren Street, London UK W1T6AD. Our VAT number is GB 867 38 74 67

 

Product Information

 

The SageBrown name and logo is a registered trademark in the UK and the copyrights of all SageBrown products, designs and photographs are owned by SageBrown. Most products have SageBrown Fine leather branding. Any unauthorised reproduction will be treated as a breach of copyright and action may be taken to protect our rights.

Our products are made to the very highest quality, beautifully designed and superbly executed. Any flaws and faults of leather are natural characteristics as are the tones and smell. Over time, our leather products will age gracefully adding character and making them distinct and unique.

We have taken a great deal of care to make sure our product information is accurate. Whilst every attempt has been made to faithfully reproduce colours and textures, variations may occur due to the natural properties of leather. Please allow a little colour variation for different display settings and slight small measurement differences due to manual measurements.

Brass Locks 

The traditional brass locks we use on some briefcases and portfolios are handmade in England using traditional methods. They are not lacquered and so over time and use they may tarnish. If this happens, please use some brass polish, without touching the leather, and buff with a soft cloth to shine.

Sale Items

Products reduced in the sale may have some faults or scratches on the leather surface and may be classed as "seconds". Where this is applicable, we will endeavour to inform the customer first before purchase and despatch (if bought on-line).

Personalisation

SageBrown’s collection of leather gifts can be personalised with embossing. Embossing embellishes the leather by indenting initials or wording through pressure. We offer blind embossing (no colour), gold or silver in Helvetica font.
Please note, that due to the textured surface of our saffiano, mock croc and ostrich leathers, small breaks may appear in the silver and gold foil stamping.
The brass locks on some of SageBrown’s briefcases can also be personalised with engraving.
Please make sure you check all spelling, grammar and punctuation as we cannot accept returns of products that have been personalised.
Please note: We use a third party to emboss our products and cannot accept returns of products that have been personalised.

Packaging

Wallets and purses are generally presented in SageBrown boxes with delicate tissue paper and a hologram sticker that signifies quality. Small leather goods are presented in a SageBrown branded cloth pouch and larger items like handbags, briefcases, portfolios etc. are presented in cloth pouches. If purchased in store, a ribbon tied luxury cardboard carrier bag is used. We are unable to offer gift wrapping at this time. Please note that any images used to depict packaging are for promotional use and are used to promote and help sell the product.

Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

Whilst we make every effort to try and ensure that all prices on our site are accurate, sometimes despite our best efforts, errors do occur. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If a pricing error is found in your order, we will contact you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order. If you choose to cancel your order, we will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your debit/credit card for the Products.
