Product Questions:

∎ What are wander(bag)s made of? 

Our wander(bag)'s are proudly made using CORDURA® eco-made fabric. This fabric is made with recycled polyester yarns that are specifically engineered to meet the fabric performance and durability specifications of the CORDURA® brand.

∎ What are Happy Tears backpacks made of? 

Crystallized happy teardrops! Well, not yet...! Our First Gen 'Hello Happy! Daypacks' are proudly made of Recycled Polyester! In comparison to Nylon, Polyester is less prone to fading in the sun, meaning that you can shine bright with your daypack through many a good time!

While we are proud to use this eco-alternative, Recycled Polyester is a transition material we are using as we strive to produce with more sustainable materials that do not compromise the integrity of the build.

∎ Can I see the product in person? 

Of course! Send us a message at bonjourhi(at)happytears.ca or DM us on Instagram or Facebook to set up a time to come by the Happy Tears Headquarters in Montreal, Quebec!

Our products are also available to discover at: Spin Énergie at 3483 Park Ave, Montreal, Quebec H2X 2H6, as well as Annex Vintage at 5364 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal, Quebec H2T 1S1.

∎ Do you offer customization? 

All Happy Tears orders are shipped out with a handwritten postcard, and can be customized with a personal message. A gift for a special someone, or maybe just for you? We've got you!

∎ What happens if a product is 'Sold Out'? 

Well, first of all... lame! But it does happen, and there is something that you can do. Write to us with your desired colour and we'll be sure to add you to our restock list! 

∎ What should I do if the product I received is flawed? 

Every product that we ship is thoroughly checked for quality. That said, we're only human and sometimes the most careful eye can miss something! Send us a message and a Happy Tears team member will review your case. Having photos of your injured happy products will be handy, so have those ready!

∎ How can I wash my happy accessory? 

Recycled polyester is a highly versatile fabric, but it is also known to hold body odour well, so a seasonal wash is highly recommended. Because of our leather trim detailing, we do NOT recommend putting your happy essentials through the washing machine in order to prevent wear and tear.

We have a wash method that has been tested for you:

1. Mix a small amount of dish soap or mild shampoo with water until bubbles are created

2. Using a toothbrush, skim the bubbles and apply them to your daypack or wander(bag) straps and/or dirt markings

3. Sponge the washed areas with a small amount of water

4. Hang your daypack or wander(bag) to dry, and you're ready to take on the day!

∎ How can I track my order? 

Once your order has shipped, you will be provided a tracking number directly via email to track your order!

∎ What happens to missing or incomplete orders? 

Somewhere in the world there is a very grateful receiver of a surprise Happy Tears delivery. But rest assure, your missing order is only a temporary challenge, and we will work with you to get yours to you ASAP!
