Yes – we ship to most countries worldwide. When ordering outside of New Zealand, the recipient is responsible for assuring the product can be legally imported to the destination country. Please remember that the recipient of an international shipment may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are imposed once a shipment reaches the recipients country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient.

Customs duties and taxes are not included in international pricing. LA LUPA does not cover the custom duties and taxes for orders from New Zealand.
Please be aware duties and taxes do vary in cost from country to country. In most cases our products will be under the threshold and so no charges will be payable.

PRODUCT CARE and INFORMATION

Please try and avoid overloading your bag as this can put pressure on the straps, seams and hardware. It could also spoil the shape of the bag. LA LUPA handbags are made with robust, quality Italian leather so a leather protective cream or spray is not essential. Light cleaning can be done with a damp cloth and then ensure the product is wiped dry.

Italian leather is a natural hide and each piece will be unique and one of a kind, so some products may have variations in the material. This is characteristic of the raw material and should not be considered an imperfection. All our handbags are handcrafted and not mass produced, so slight variations are an indicator that each piece is unique and distinctive. Creasing in some items is unavoidable during manufacturing and shipment, but should diminish as you use the bag.

** Please also note that the actual colour of the item might vary slightly from product images due to computer, tablet and mobile phone resolution.
