how to order
Important – 27 Oct 21:
- The cut-off for bespoke pieces with a “delivered by Christmas” guarantee has passed.
- Australia post shipping times are currently very unreliable, this is out of our control.
- I (Ruth) have injured my hand so all paracord and biothane bespoke orders are on hold. You can order, to be in the production queue, but I can’t let you know the predicted turnaround time.
If you’ve ordered from Ruthless Leather, our previous incarnation, in the past, please note that there is no longer a defined turnaround time for bespoke orders in our terms (however, there is still a minimum of 8 weeks production time for bespoke leather pieces). Dave and I both work full time in our other businesses so our availability to handcraft pieces to order is limited. In an effort to manage our workloads and client expectations the process for placing an order is now as follows:
First, measure your dog’s neck or internal collar circumference using our instructions: https://ruffineddesigns.com/measuring/
- Then, go to the shop section and peruse our designs. Do you want leather, Brahma or Paracord and Biothane (see our FAQs for more info)? Would you like to buy a ready to ship item or order a bespoke piece? If you find what you like in the ready to ship section add it to your cart, checkout and then you’re done!
If you’d like a bespoke piece (or pieces) add all the items you wish to order to your cart and checkout. Your confirmation email may go to your spam folder so please add us to your address book (but know this may not be a guarantee that future emails won’t also get flagged as spam). We’ll respond with an approximate turnaround time for your bespoke pieces within 3 business days and you’ll then have 24hrs to decide if you’d like your items added to the production queue. If at that point you decide not to proceed you can request a full refund.
Please note that Dave’s availability to craft bespoke leather orders is very limited and the wait time can be several months. If you’re not a patient person we strongly recommend that you don’t order leather! Brahma, Paracord and Biothane pieces don’t have the same lengthy wait times.
