About the Bags
Why choose to use cruelty-free vegan materials?
We can’t give away all our secrets but we use vegan leather for reasons such as:
Animal friendly – We love animals and therefore ensure that all Oliver Bilou materials are cruelty-free.
Lightweight – Vegan leather is lighter than leather making your handbag much easier to carry.
Durability – Vegan leather is extremely durable and long-lasting. It can withstand scratches and scrapes that would generally mark genuine leather. It is also not prone to cracking or peeling like leather, and will not fade as easily in ultra violet (UV) light. Additionally, it is stain resistant but we suggest still being careful with that vodka cranberry.
Low Maintenance – Vegan leather materials can usually be wiped clean with a dry cloth. Unlike genuine leather, it does not retain moisture, so vegan leather items will not become warped or cracked.
Realistic Quality – Technology is all around us and vegan leather is a product of this. Vegan leather has been modified and improved with variations in grains, colors and textures to reflect a visual appearance with a realistic leather quality.
Easy to Work with – Vegan leather is easier to cut and sew than real leather. In addition, needle marks are usually less noticeable and threads blend with the vegan leather material more seamlessly. Less time and fewer mistakes equal lower prices too!
Affordability - Vegan leather is more affordable than real leather allowing us to create awesome bags at awesome prices.
Where are the bags made?
Our bags are made in Dongguan city, Guangdong province in China.

Duties and Taxes
Will I have to pay any duties and taxes on top of my order?
All of our parcels are sent from our warehouse in Hong Kong. There may be duties and taxes payable by you once the goods reach your country, depending on which country you are in. These charges will have to be paid by you at the time of import. Unfortunately, we have no control over these government charges and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs’ policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.
You can however get an estimate of the charges to expect by visiting Duty Calculator and performing the calculation on their site.
We recommend that you contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by any additional charges. Oliver Bilou is not responsible for any customs and import duty charges.
What is Oliver Bilou's stance on responsible sourcing?
The Oliver Bilou team is dedicated to responsible sourcing and ensuring that we make people’s lives better today than they were yesterday. We care not only about the social aspects of our supply chain, but the environmental ones too. Our factory is audited on an annual basis for social compliance, and we pay close attention to the environmental impacts we are having.
If you have any suggestions for us in this regard, please feel free to mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can hear your thoughts.
What happens if I want to return a bag?
Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.
