handmade eco friendly baby goods and housewares.
downhomeamy's Shop Policies
thank you for visiting my etsy shop.
this is my eco-friendly collection
of housewares and baby goods.
i do all the silk-screening in my studio
using water based inks.
so i recommend washing in cold and hang to dry
for the goodness of your item and the goodness
of the earth.
(it's fine to iron over prints when pressing).
all fabric is washed in natural phosphate free
laundry detergent and dried before sewn.
i prefer to use only natural fabrics
but for the snack pouches and lunch bags
i use a polyurethane coated nylon for the lining.
i have done a lot of research on the topic
of fabric and food safety and what i've learned
is that this nylon is safe, PUL (polyurethane laminate) is not.
the coated side is the underside so it has no direct contact with food.
it still bothers me a little purchasing a non biodegradable synthetic fabric so
i also offer an organic cotton/hemp option for the lining (which is not water-proof).
please note that with the recycled hemp/organic cotton
fabric the colour is slightly different with each batch because
it is recycled, it also has a bit of a wrinkled look.
i use mostly recycled paper products with
my packaging. packaging is something that
i think a lot about and i try to encourage
customers to reuse my wrapping, gift bags
and envelopes. if you are a return customer
and don't need hang tags
please let me know and i won't include them.
all of the prints are from my own
since i do all the printing by hand
not all prints come out exactly the same.
i use stock photos in my shop so you won't
receive the exact one i used in the photograph
but one very similar.
please remember that colours may appear slightly different
on different monitors. if you have a question about the colour of a print or fabric
just let me know.
all original designs, patterns, illustrations and prints done by down home amy.

i now except visa, debit, etsy gift cards and paypal.
already made items ship in 1-3 business days. anything that is made to order will be shipped 5-7 days after purchase date. each listing will specify if it is made to order or is already made and ready to ship.
unfortunately canada post works a little differently and all orders shipped outside of canada cannot be tracked and don't include insurance unless you pay extra for expedited shipping, which can be $25 or more and is faster. (if you decide you would prefer to take that route just email or convo me and i can adjust shipping costs for you).
i am able to make shipping less on smaller orders by using non padded recyclable envelopes. all pouches and smaller items are folded to fit in these.
estimated shipping times:
within canada: 5-7 business days
to the US: 7-10 business days
internationally: anywhere from 3-6 weeks.
usually shipping is pretty quick within north america, unfortunately there is nothing i can do if your order is held at customs.
it is sometimes tricky calculating costs from canada if you are shipping with more then one item. i will let you know and reimburse your pay pal account or visa if the shipping ends up being less than posted. if you need fast shipping i can also set up custom listings with express post prices.
please let me know if you are sending it to someone as a gift. i would be happy to wrap it up nice and include a little personalized gift card.
once purchase is made i will convo you within 24 hours with an exact shipping date and confirmation of shipping address.
Refunds and Exchanges
i want you to be 100% satisfied with your down home amy purchase and if for any reason you are not pleased don't hesitate to let me know.
Additional Policies and FAQs
