ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
How long before my order ships?
Everything at mishnóc is made by hand. We are making all day everyday. Your order will ship within 5 working days of your order.
Is all of your stuff made in Ireland?
Yes. We manufacture all of our own brand mishnóc products at our leather workshop in Athenry, Co-Galway. We do sell some third party leather goods on our website and in our bricks and mortar store in Galway city but these are clearly pointed out.

As a rule, no. Prototyping products is a time consuming inefficient way of producing 1 item.

Why do you make things from leather isn’t it bad for the environment and unfair on animals?
All of the leather used by us is a by product of the meat industry and no animal is farmed for it’s hide. Creating a demand for higher quality leathers leads to high animal welfare standards as any marks on the skin caused by bad handling or conditions denigrates the hide to a bad grade leather.
Products made from leather last longer and with care improve with age. This helps to fight the blight that is “Fast Fashion”. Cheap fake or vegan leather products are all made from polyurethane (pu) a by product of the petro chemical industry. It is extremely cheap and allows bag and accessory makers to produce low quality throw away fashion. It all ultimately ends up in our land fills and oceans, it can take in excess of 500 years to break down
Do you use Irish Leather?
Currently there are no companies in Ireland tanning leather. All of Ireland’s raw hides are exported for tanning to other countries. Irish hides are highly sought after by European Tanners as the quality is very high due to high animal welfare standards practiced in farming here. We only use the highest quality cow leather that has been tanned in European tanneries.
Do you offer a repair service?
Currently we only offer a repair service to customers who have originally purchased their product from us. Email Mark on [email protected] to book in your repair.
