What does murse mean?
While the oxford dictionary does not translate the term “murse”, various colloquial definitions are rendered, ranging from man purse to a male nurse. Urban dictionary states: “very fashion-forward right now, seen on many hipster guys. the line between a messenger bag and Murse is very fluid – typically a Murse is a bit smaller than a traditional messenger, and may have a slightly more stylised look to it“. Whatever the definition, we like to think the Murse concept will forge its own identity.
How long does it take to receive in the post?
We endeavor to have internet orders processed and goods dispatched out to customers within 24 hours of the transaction.

We use NZ courier post and so your Murse should arrive within 1-2 working days of dispatch.
How often do different styles become available on the website?
The short answer is as soon as they run out! We hand pick the best leather we come across from suppliers in New Zealand. Each hide selected has distinct attributes and can only be fashioned into a limited number of Murse Wallets. Once a series has been exhausted we have to make a dash back to our suppliers for more premium leather. It is anticipated that we will do some one-off runs as a limited edition on some very special products from time to time – so stayed tuned! You can sign up for news and promotions here.
Will the leather of my Murse Wallet stain?
Some of the Murse Wallets (e.g. the Cobain) are made from Nu-buck leather hide and care should be taken to avoid contact with certain liquids where possible as they may leave marks. Nu-buck leather is soft and similar to suede and a protectant can be purchased if you want to reduce the chance of staining and to maintain that fresh look; more information on care can be found at www.kiwicare.com. The Murse Wallets in finished leather (with a shinier look) will be less susceptible to stains.
Do I need a care kit for the leather?
Understandably your Murse will become a cherished accessory so you want to look after it. Like any natural hide leather, knocks, scratches and bumps on the leather will only enhance its general appearance / patina over time. Minor scratches will even tend to buff out in most cases and so applying a leather protectant is not really considered necessary; and, depending on the type of care product, may result in discolouration. While applying dubbin or nugget to our rugby boots growing up may have been a great idea, your Murse certainly will not love you for it and so should be discouraged.
