Shipping & Returns

Available items ship within 2-3 business days, Monday through Friday.


We ship worldwide with a network of reliable carriers, offering both Economy and Express services at checkout. Wherein duties are required, they are payable by the customer at importation.


We gladly accept returns of unused, new items within 30 days of shipment and provide a prepaid label to make the process easy.

For international returns, we ask that customers make their own shipping arrangements with a trusted carrier of their choice.


With the aim of delivering more value to more customers, we do not blend the cost of returns into our prices and instead apply a US$15 surcharge to cover return shipping and restocking.

Lifetime Warranty

We take great pride in the quality and craftsmanship of our products. This item is protected by our guarantee against defects in manufacturing and materials.


Crafted from our resilient DuraLite™ nylon and full grain leather — all our bags are durable, fuss-free solutions built to be carried everyday. To clean the bag, simply use a wet cloth to wipe down the surface and let the fabric dry naturally. For more persistent spots, we recommend warm water and soap.

Over time, your daily touch points can show signs of use. We took this into account and designed detachable handles and straps. When you require a fresh set, they can be easily replaced and your bag will be as good as new.

If you have any questions about caring for your bag, our team is always standing by to help.

Design Story

The Cary Briefcase was born in response to years spent traversing the cityscapes of New York and Hong Kong, carrying cumbersome bags in tow. While ballistic nylon, waxed canvas, and leather bags were the norm, they weighed us down and contributed complexity to our commutes. We sought something agile and effortless, and thus, our journey to build a better briefcase began.
