Feedback from our backers has allowed us to further improve the interior. On top of the padded laptop compartment, we have added a dedicated document pouch allowing you to keep files separate from the main compartment of the bag… no more crumpled edges.

We also designed the interior compartments so that they are just as easily accessible when carrying the 48Hr Switch as a backpack as they are as a briefcase.

Ever found yourself choosing a bag to go to work or university for its practicality and then almost hiding it under the desk once you got there? The 48Hr Switch is created with both functionality and design in mind. That way you can feel proud and comfortable wherever your day takes you.

As designers, we value how products withstand the test of time. We believe in creating products that look just as ‘clean’, unique and contemporary today as they would have looked 30 years ago and as they will do in the future.

We continuously demand more from our goods which is why functionality and practicality were key when designing the Switch bag. The result is a working balance between a discreet exterior and a smart interior.

One of the most appreciated features by the Kickstarter team of backers from our initial project was the expandable compartment, so it’s definitely here to stay! 

Know that feeling when you pack your bag to the limit and then you find that there is an extra zip that you can open to expand your bag? Inspired by the larger travel luggage, we are bringing this convenient feature to our daily bag.

Because there is no single ideal size, the 48Hr Switch adapts to your needs by expanding 70% from its original size.

As passionate photographers, we know how practical it is to have a bag that is adapted to carrying your gear but can also do much more than that, all while blending into your surroundings. The extra camera compartments are ideal for taking your gear on your next adventure and can be easily removed for the overnights stays when maximum space is key.

The 48Hr Switch comes with two detachable straps that can be attached and removed in an instant using the metal carabiners to convert from backpack to messenger or briefcase.

FAQ

When will my 48Hr Switch be shipped?

How accurate is the leather colour I see on my monitor?

We go to great lengths to ensure that the shade of colour displayed in the images matches accurately that of the real life product. Please bear in mind that the accuracy of the actual colours you see on your monitor may depend on the level of calibration of your screen.

As one of our brand values is to use high quality genuine leather, as expected it is possible that there may be certain inequalities of material and colour which are not regarded as defects.


These factors are in fact what give genuine leather goods their character and uniqueness.

How long are Tefors products covered by warranty?

Quality is one of our primary values and for that reason we are very picky when it comes to choosing the natural materials we use as well as the craftsmanship involved in shaping these into a Tefors product.

Although unlikely, if a product breaks as a result of a manufacturing defect then we apologise in advance and we ask you to contact us within the periods stated below so that we can help you out as soon as possible.

Bags: Warranty for this type of products is 12 months from the purchase date.

Small goods: The warranty for wallets, phone cases etc. is 8 months from the purchase date.

We ask you to contact us by email at hello@tefors.com or alternatively by filling out the form in the Contact Us section. Please include your order number and date of order to speed up the process.

Please bear in mind: In the event that you discover a problem caused by wear and tear we recommend taking your goods to a leather repair shop.

How should I best take care of my leather goods?

– First of all and probably the most important point is common sense. Nubuck leather does indeed need more attention than other leathers such as full grain but as long as you apply common sense and avoid using any cleaning products that have harsh chemicals or alcohol in them, the leather should maintain its quality look.

– If you choose to use a leather cleaner we recommend also applying a conditioner in order to ensure that the leather is replenished with its needed oils. There is no single rule as to how much conditioning your leather needs as it all depends on the way the good is used and elements it is exposed to. If the leather appears dried-out and dull then that is most likely a sign that it is lacking its natural oils, therefore it is probably a good time to apply the conditioning treatment.

– Avoid as much as possible heavy rain as there is a possibility that it could lead to stains. This is particularly relevant to Nubuck leather. A precautionary measure may be using protectors specially destined for nubuck and suede. One of these products is Kiwi Suede and Nubuck Protector.

On the Kiwi website you will also find other cleaning products for various types of leather which we have found effective in the past. There are many other brands out there that offer similar products that may be worth considering.

Regardless of the product, we strongly advise that you test-spray on a small and unnoticeable part of your bag (such as the bottom) first to see if the product will discolour or have any adverse effect on the leather.

Can Customs Fees be applied to orders?

Customs fees are the responsibility of the customers. These fees may be applicable if your country of delivery has decided to apply import fees. TEFORS has no control over these charges and we can’t tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

Delivery to EU Countries

The goods ordered from Tefors.com are shipped out from the European Union. If your country of delivery is also within the European Union, no customs fees will be applied.

As of January 1st, 2021 UK is no longer a member of the UK, so import duties may apply. Please check with your local customs office to find out more information about tariffs when importing goods from the EU to UK.

Delivery to Non-EU Countries

If you are choosing to have your order shipped to a country that is not within the European Union, we suggest checking with your national customs authorities, the tariffs that may be applied to the category of products that you are ordering from Tefors.com.

Delivery to the US

As a reference, the US generally does not apply import fees for personal use purchases when the goods have a value that is under 800 USD. Please keep in mind that this is only as a reference, and we advise you to check the up to date information on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
