Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Over the last several months we have face and conquered many challenges and roadblocks. Our commitment to Amazig Leathers, our artisans, and our customers is unwavering. That same commitment is what will drive us forward and allow us to find creative solutions to all of the challenges we will face. Additionally, our founder and visionaire, Brandi Jordan, is surrounded by the most supportive and encouraging community who want to see this vision brought to fruition.

In order to further minimize your risk we want you to send your product back if you do not love it when it arrives. We are always tweaking and want to know what you like and do not like about what we are doing here at Amazig!
