Due to the nature and dying process of leather, some colors may bleed on to socks and/or skin. The dye will not harm your child, but may be an annoyance if, for example, your baby is wearing light colored socks with dark shoes. Please test a small area prior to wearing the article of clothing with your D&F shoes. D&F is not responsible for any damages to articles of clothing.
Furthermore, D&F is not responsible for damage that occurs to our shoes after they have been worn. Leather will naturally scuff, obtain marks, or lose its finish as your baby crawls, walks, and/or plays.
Please check all buttons and shoe laces on your shoes to make sure that they are secure. Loose parts can be a choking hazard. Some of our shoes contain small parts such as snaps, wooden beads, elastic, and small leather pieces which can be a choking hazard. Please be advised that your child should be supervised at all times to ensure their safety while wearing their D&F shoes. If a piece should become loose, please discontinue use until you have securely attached the piece that has become loose.
As a small handmade business, I design, prepare, create, and hand package all of my products just for you! This requires time, and I want to get it right. The processing window quoted at checkout ensures that I will provide you with a good quality product that I can be proud of, and am confident you will enjoy. SHOES WILL SHIP BY the date specified in the policy agreement at checkout.
Each and every shoe is handcrafted in the United States by a mom, just like you! We want you to shop with confidence! We hand inspect and measure all shoes for accuracy before they head out the door, however, as with all handcrafted items, there may be some variance (which may be up to 1/8" difference.)
If your baby shoes should become soiled, it is best to wash them with a gentle cloth and mild soap and water. It is ideal that your baby's moccasins/shoes be worn in dry conditions. If they become wet it is recommended that you reshape them and allow them to dry completely before using again. The leather may become stiff. Some of our leathers are in their natural state and will patina over time. Variation and markings are a natural and beautiful part of cowhide leather.
