Ordering Information

Handcrafted Takes Time

We make all of our reliable softgoods at our manufacturing facility in Duluth, Minnesota. Each Frost River item starts as a roll of waxed canvas or a hide of leather and is handcrafted into the item of your choice by skilled tradespeople. Stitch by stitch and rivet by rivet–handcrafting takes time.

While we do try to have as many items as possible in-stock, sometimes we may need to build one of the items on your order. You can know what to expect for timeline by looking at the stock notifications on each product page. If we have the item/items completed, you can expect your order to ship in 1-2 business days from when you placed it. If we need to make an item for you, there will be a message denoting, "Crafting, this item will ship in 7-10 business days." The sooner you place your order, the sooner the item will make it to your doorstep.

If you have any questions about ordering or manufacturing timelines, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at frinfo@frostriver.com
