How does Pre-Order work?
We offer pre-order as an opportunity to secure your new handbag before we fully launch; this way, we are also able to reduce excess stock levels by creating a more precise amount of what is needed, which reduces waste and is better for the environment.
If you have purchased a handbag on Pre-Order, you can expect your new handbag to be dispatched within 2-4 weeks. We envision that you'll receive the handbag sooner than this, but allow some room for any unexpected delays. You will receive an Order Confirmation email with details on your order alongside another email when your order is due to be dispatched.
Where has my handbag been made?
Everything on Charlotte Elizabeth is handcrafted by a wonderful team of leather makers in Spain. This family-run factory has over 70 years experience in luxury leather handbag craftsmanship.

How should I care for my product?
Although our products have been created using high quality leather, we recommend the following to extend the lifespan of your new purchase for as long as possible.
We advise not overloading your handbag often, as over time, this may cause wear and tear.
If your handbag is expose it to water, dry as soon as possible with a soft cloth. Do not place your handbag against radiators or leave it in direct sunlight for long periods of time.
Please take extra care to not place makeup, skincare or alcohol (including anti-bacterial hand gel) on any Charlotte Elizabeth products, as this may impact them.
