Dooney & Bourke is a United States manufacturer of a wide range of fashion clothing and accessories for women and men. Besides a protection guarantee—full and unconditional guarantee against any defects in product craftsmanship for up to one year after purchase—Dooney & Bourke also offers a product Repair/Replacement Program to customers after the first year has passed. Customers must ship the damaged product to Dooney & Bourke with a repair request. Dooney & Bourke will then evaluate the damage and either repair your purse or offer a partial credit toward replacement.

You may receive an offer to repair the damage at a cost of no more than one-half of the current retail price for the specific purse style or a credit of the same amount toward the purchase of a replacement in the same style.
