Refunds and Returns


Whoops! Sometimes things don't always happen according to plan and so we want to do whatever we can to make you, our customers, happy.  Here our youngest daughter decided to photobomb our catalogue shoot, her timing was so perfect that the shot was taken before we saw her....so we have made our refunds and returns policy as flexible, easy and clear as we can to help you.     

Returns - yes, we do.


  • We accept returns and exchanges on all items, except sale items, provided that they are returned within 21 days of delivery.
  • To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. 
  • To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.  Don't worry we keep a record of all of our online sales so we just need to match it to your order number and name. 
  • If you have purchased an item from a shop or another online retailer please contact them first.
  • For hygiene reasons we do not accept returns of underwear.
  • Please be very careful when trying on shoes, use socks and do so on a soft furnishing such as a rug or carpet so as not to damage the sole or any part of the shoe.  We cannot accept returns of any shoes which are scuffed or scratched. All of our shoes are leather and are hand made and you may see slight variations which is absolutely normal. 
  • Please contact our customer service team immediately at info@dimitybourke.com and we can start to arrange your refund or exchange.
  • We will let you know where to return any item and this will depend on which country that you live in.
  • At the moment you will need to pay the shipping costs of returning any item to us.

  • If the item is of a greater value then we will charge you for that and if it is a lesser amount then of course you will receive a refund.
Refunds - yes, we do.
