Frequently Asked Questions

What brand is Style Cat?
Style Cat is a lifestyle brand specializing in resort bags that can also be worn both in the city and out exploring. The bags highlight the use of weaving and hand embroidery – a skill that Filipino artisans have mastered and passed on from generation to generation.

 

Where are the bags made?
A community of women artisans in the Philippines makes the bags and Bella Kini is the exclusive seller of Style Cat in Singapore.

 

What is the material of the bags?
Style Cat uses a wide range of materials – all from renewable resources. It uses wicker, coconut husks, raffia, pandan leaves, straw and other leaves that go through an extensive drying process then hand cut to be woven by the artisans.

What are your payment options?
Style Cat accepts payments via BPI or BDO bank deposit details or PayPal.

 

What courier do you use?
For international shipments, it depends on the buyers preference but we usually go with Aramex. For local shipments, we send the bags out with JRS, Lalamove and Grab Express.

 

How long does shipping take?
We usually have an allowance of 3-4 days for our regular shipping arrangements unless specifically requested by the client to expedite.

How do I care for the bag?
Since the bag is mainly composed of dried leaves, please avoid to get the bag wet. Light water streaks are ok but the bag should not be soaked.

 

How do I clean the bag?
The leaves provide a natural glossy coat so there is no need to apply any product on it. Always store in the dust bag when not in use and wipe with a dry cloth when removing dust.

 

Do the materials easily break?
Style Cat bags are made with the same material the community uses as sleeping mats and hammocks so the material is quite strong and sturdy. Our bags are designed to carry all your beach essentials so feel free to pack a lot.

 

Will the colors of my bag fade?
Style Cat uses export-approved lead-free dye on the materials so it’s a high quality dye that will not fade away easily.

 

What kind of leather is it?
Style Cat is animal cruelty and avoids genuine leather. It uses the highest grade of leatherette that is soft and supple but super tough.

 

Will the hardware fade?
Style Cat uses high quality gold tone hardware that doesn’t rust easily.
