      We also offer a palletised service for large orders please contact us at to discuss this service in more detail.

      Timing of delivery

      Our delivery service provides you with a one hour delivery window, notified in advance, so that you do not have to wait in all day for your parcel.

      Orders are normally delivered 9am to 5pm. However, a more precise time can be arranged through DHL who offer a text service to facilitate this. This works by DHL texting you with a delivery slot at least an hour beforehand. This time can then be changed if it is unsuitable.

      Delivery charges

      Our products are competitively priced and so we do charge a small amount for delivery. We do not profit on delivery charges to keep them as low as possible for our customers.

      If you do not wish to incur a delivery charge, we are happy for you to collect your goods from our Leeds warehouse (select the pick-up option at checkout).


      If you wish to return an order, you must email within 14 days of receiving it.

      We require the following information:

      - Order number (e.g. #1234).

      - The reason you would like to return your order.

      If there is an issue with your order, please also provide:

      - Photos of the bag(s) & the description on the side of the box.

      - A clear description of what is wrong with the product(s).

      We will then respond accordingly & take the best steps to achieve the necessary outcome.

      Please note that our warehouse is located at: Unit C6, Cross Green Garth, Cross Green Industrial Estate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS9 0SF

      Return delivery costs

      Return delivery will only be paid for by Big Brown Carrier Bag if:

      • The item(s) are damaged or faulty
      • The item(s) have been delivered incorrectly

      In either of these cases we will arrange a courier to collect the order ASAP.

      Damaged or faulty items

      All orders leave our warehouse in pristine condition and are double checked before being packed. However, sometimes mistakes happen. If you receive an item that is damaged or faulty we will offer you the choice of either a replacement or a refund.

      If the item is no longer available you may either receive a replacement equal to the value of your order, a discount coupon for further purchase(s) up to the value of your order, or a full refund.

      Ordered items not as expected

      Every effort is made to ensure that images of our products on the website are as clear as possible and that they are described accurately. However, if your order is not as you could reasonably have expected, or you have ordered the wrong size/colour/quantity, you may request a replacement or a refund.

      We will issue a refund for the cost of the goods, or a replacement, upon return of the items (by the customer). The items need to be in a re-saleable condition in order to be replaced or refunded.

      We always recommend ordering samples before purchasing in bulk. Click here to order a sample pack.

      Order cancellations

      You must cancel your order within 14 days of receipt in order to qualify for a full refund (excluding delivery charges) on off-the shelf products. This is your statutory right according to the long distance selling regulations and is known as 'the cooling-off period'.

      Cancellations cannot & will not be accepted on bespoke products that have been produced and delivered.
