Is the product on the website the same as what is available from stores?
The complete article:® product collection is featured right here on our website. Most products (with the exception of some) are also stocked by selected Fashion Boutiques & Lifestyle Stores. The amount of stock available through our Retail Partners varies - some stores carry a larger amount than others. Please visit our Retail Partners page to find your nearest store.
We are unable to ascertain if a Retail Partner has a specific product in stock, as their stock levels constantly change and their stores are operated independently. If you are wishing to purchase from our Online Store and we have sold out of a particular product, it can often be found at a Retail Partner.
Are the colours exactly as they appear on my screen?
article:® makes every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the Website. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor/screen resolution, your brightness settings, your colour display profile and how often your monitor/screen is calibrated, we cannot guarantee that your monitor/screen's display of any colour will be accurate.

How do I care for my article:®?
article:® is committed to unsurpassed quality in every aspect of design and manufacture. Each detail is carefully considered and hand-crafted by skilled artisans to ensure the longevity of the product is never compromised. In order to preserve your article:® and ensure it ages beautifully, we recommend following the Product Care card that accompanies your product. Full details can also be found here.
What warranty do you offer?
We pride ourselves on ensuring that all of our products are of the highest quality and meet our strict manufacturing standards. All article:® products are quality checked in-house by our suppliers and in addition, undergo final random inspections and lab testing by independent inspection authorities prior to being shipped to us. However, should any defect or manufacture fault present itself, we offer a one (1) year warranty on components and workmanship.
Our leather collection utilises both genuine leather and genuine fur (in lesser amounts). All hides are premium quality and hand-chosen due to their natural characteristics of sustainability, hand-feel and durability. To reduce waste, the majority of the hide is used when crafting our leather goods, which will result in slight variations in texture, colour and grain. Being a natural product, every hide/skin is unique and these variations in colours, indentations, wrinkles and marks on the hide/skin are part of its natural beauty and should be considered as life-lines adding to its character, not a fault.
