Locating a Package
There's nothing worse than when your tracking number states that your package was delivered but you can't find it! Don't worry, we are here to help! Before reaching out to us, there are a few things to do:
- Confirm the correct shipping address was entered on your order.
- Check the tracking number to confirm that the package was delivered to your address and not a nearby Access Point.
- Confirm that there are no activity log updates on the tracking number that state the item was returned to the sender.
- Check your property thoroughly. Couriers will occasionally leave items in a discreet area to minimize the risk of package theft. It is often also helpful to check with neighbors.
- If you live in a building with a concierge/mail room, confirm that they do not have it.
After going through the above list, if you still cannot find the package, please email us at email@example.com within 14 days of the order showing as delivered. Please include your order number in your email. We will work with you and the USPS to determine next steps. We are happy to assist with loss claims, regardless of when they were filed, but cannot guarantee refunds or replacements for claims filed more than 14 days after the package was marked delivered.
If you have questions about shipping, or if you have not received your order in the allotted time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help troubleshoot the issue.
Love leather that naturally ages and patinas over time? Our raw leather is made for you. Or do you love leather that maintains the color (especially the lighter colors) and uniformity similar to the day you bought it? Then our oil leather is your pick.
We have two kinds of leather at Sapahn: raw leather and oil leather, and regardless of which leather type you pick, our bags come with our Sapahn warranty.
This is the classic full grain leather we’ve built Sapahn on. Each piece of leather is perfectly ‘imperfect’, carrying unique grain patterns with no surface alterations or splitting and an attractive matte finish. This type of leather showcases the beauty of the hide itself and could display variegation based on stretch marks, moles, etc. the cow earned throughout its life.
Working with this kind of leather can be challenging and requires enormous skill to turn it into our gorgeous supple bags you see (if only we had a penny for every time someone told us the leather felt like butter). This kind of leather is particularly special because over time and use, each raw leather bag develops a distinct patina—a soft sheen—that is the hallmark of high-quality leather. The patina also gives your bag individual character that is 100% unique to you and your adventures.
Our oil leather is our gorgeous full grain leather with a twist. After our classic tanning process, the leather is then coated with a protectant to give a more uniform vibrant color and provide a touch of water resistance. The oiling process gives these bags a striking glossy finish and also prevents them from developing patinas over time. This means YES, you can carry a light-colored leather bag and not be afraid of it getting dirty.
Does the leather easily scratch?
No. Small scratches easily buff out of raw leather. An exception is if the scratch is deep and penetrates beneath the top layer of the hide. Otherwise, subtle scratches will often work themselves out and become part of the patina glow. The same is true with our oil leather which—unless it is a deep it won’t show any subtle scratches.
Will rain stain my leather?
Raw Leather: This would be super rare. The water will make a mark on your bag while it’s wet. Avoid touching it and transferring dirt on it. Instead, let it dry.
Oil Leather: the rain/water will just roll right off your bag. Towel it dry.
What is the best way to clean spills?
Raw Leather: Take a damp, soft cloth and try to remove the spill as soon as possible. To clean it further, we have had good results with Angelus cleaner and horsehair brush, that you can purchase here. There are other cleaners that may be good too. We don’t promote this one over others but have had good results with removing stains. It is key to test a small spot first as discoloration may occur. Again, not the fault of the leather. The discoloration will occur with any moist product touching any porous material.
Oil Leather: One major benefit of our oil leather is it is very easy to clean. Use a damp cloth and rub the dirt or stain off the bag.
- How do I remove ink or dye from my bag: Unfortunately, ink is difficult and nearly impossible to remove. The same is true with blue jean dye. This is not a reflection of the quality of our leather, but the dye itself. Since leather is a natural, porous product, it will absorb things and inks and dyes are made to be permanent.
Where is your leather sourced from?
We use premium leather sourced from Thailand. Our leather is a bi-product of the food industry and are raised for meat/dairy not for their hides. It’s a beautiful thing to take what would be a wasted material and craft it into our gorgeous leather bags and give our artisans fair and meaningful work.
Kiely Conversely Backpack❤️perfection
I bought this beautiful backpack for my daughter, who does not carry a purse. She fell in love with its style & design and supple leather. She wears it everywhere and is thrilled with the expanse of the bag, meticulous construction, and color (whiskey) ❤️ Kiely Conversely Backpack looks so natural on - a beautiful, beautiful piece❤️
Practically Perfect in Every Way
This bag is really lovely. The soft leather and brass hardware are very high quality, and I’m in love with both the purple/blue color of the leather and the black and white checked fabric lining. This was my first Sapahn, and I’ll definitely be back. That being said, I do think the design elements of the bag could be enhanced. For instance, the bag needs an interior zip compartment for valuables. There is only one zip pocket, and it is on the exterior of the bag. So I’m having to keep my phone and my key fob in the same spot, which worries me for the day when I forget to zip the pocket shut after grabbing my phone. I love the convertible elements of the bag, including the extra wide strap when it is hobo mode. But the teeth of the zipper bite into your skin when you wear it as a backpack, particularly now in the summer. Also, it has long zippers on both the top and the side. I’m sure this is a security feature when it is in backpack mode, but the double zipper seems unnecessary, particularly since it would be nicer to have a pocket or pouch instead of another zipper. So, overall, a very good bag, but not a perfect one sadly.
I love my new Kiehly. The backpack function with the zipper is fun and edgy.
Love this bag!
I’ve had my eye on this one for a long time, so glad I finally bought it. So easy to carry and well thought out. Love it! Thanks Sapahn!
The zippers are so smooth, the stitching is immaculate, and the leather is, indeed, buttery.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the weight of this bag? Can it stand on its own or does it flip over?
Great question, Audrey! The Kiely weighs 1.65 lbs. With a rounded base, it will sit up-right based on what is inside the bag if that makes sense.
