Scuola del Cuoio was founded after World War II through the collaborative efforts of the Franciscan friars of the Monastery of Santa Croce and the Gori and Casini families, Florentine leather artisans since the 1930’s. Their mission was to give orphans of the war a means to learn a practical trade with which to earn a living.
Scuola del Cuoio uses FedEx or DHL couriers to ship and insure all parcels outside of Italy. Shipment cost is based on weight and volume of the package. The system will automatically quote the cost of shipping and insurance before you proceed to check-out. All items purchased from Scuola del Cuoio are made ensuing a shipment contract. Scuola del Cuoio remains responsible for the shipment until the parcel is delivered to the consignee's address. Customers are required to provide Scuola del Cuoio, the courier, Customs Offices, or any other entity involved with the logistics of the order with any information or personal information needed to allow a prompt delivery of the order.
Any order that includes products made of exotic skins (e.g. alligator, ostrich, python…) will be shipped as soon as the documents required and the Cites certification will be issued within 10 days from receiving the order. Because of Customs inspections delivery could delay.
US homeland and border security procedures imply that each courier, on behalf of the US Customs Service and the Department of the Treasury, must obtain from the Consignee of international shipments a "Customs Form 5106" completed in all its parts. If the Consignee - when required - fails to submit the form in a timely manner, the courier is authorized to return the parcel to the Sander, applying shipping charges and Italian Custom duties. In such eventuality, the Consignee is the sole responsible for any charge that Scuola del Cuoio will endorse to receive back the shipment.
Shipments may be charged with duties at destination.
If a Scuola del Cuoio product does not meet customer satisfaction for any reason (size, color, product in general), Scuola del Cuoio must receive a registered letter within 14 days of purchase or the receipt of the merchandise. Scuola del Cuoio will replace the product or provide a refund of the merchandise not including the initial shipping charges, the shipping charges to receive the returned merchandise in Italy, and credit card commissions.
