Announcement    Welcome to my Lava Living shop.
COVID 19 SHIPPING ANNOUNCEMENT
*Delivery time-frames specified by Etsy when you place your order do not reflect the possible delays due to COVID 19.

* BRISBANE DELIVERY : If you are local to Brisbane enter the COUPON CODE FREELOCAL at checkout for free Economy Shipping (no tracking)

* AUSTRALIAN DELIVERY: it appears there no major delays within QLD but some interstate deliveries are experiencing delays due to limited flights, more parcels in the network due to increased on-line ordering, and delays due to social distancing required in processing facilities. You can read more in my SHIPPING POLICIES.

* UNITED STATES DELIVERY is improving since May but still experiencing delays on regular shipping time-frames. This means it could be approx 3- 4 weeks to receive your order I am sorry to say. Economy shipping to the USA has been suspended by Australia Post, therefore we as sellers have to upgrade to Tracked shipping. SO THE GOOD NEWS IS If you select ECONOMY SHIPPING it will give you a more accurate reflection of the delivery time-frame and cost less, but you will be UPGRADED to STANDARD DELIVERY WITH TRACKING. I will send you a TRACKING NUMBER with the shipping notification, so this will give you peace of mind that your order is in transit.
You can read more in my SHIPPING POLICIES.
I am also offering you my wonderful American customers a 20% DISCOUNT on minimum orders of $52 AUD (APPROX $33 USD depending on currency rate).
The sale is set up now, so I hope you can take advantage of it. If you place your order the discount will appear at checkout.
Any questions please send me a message and I will get back to you asap.
I really do appreciate your patience in these difficult times and hope things will get back to normal soon.
Wishing you good health and peace of mind throughout this time.

ABOUT LAVA.
We are a cruelty free small creative business.
At Lava we work with plant based natural textiles using skilled traditional Shibori and Indigo dyeing techniques, to present a modern interpretation of ancient crafts.
Shibori is a resist dye technique that began in Japan approx 4000 years ago. Traditionally Shibori textiles are dyed with Indigo which was once referred to as 'Blue Gold' as it was such a valuable trading commodity in the ancient world.
You will also find some Ice Dyed pieces in the shop. These have had Shibori resist technique applied, however here I use different coloured fibre reactive dyes to achieve beautiful watercolour affects created by the melting ice.
As well as hand-dyed home and fashion accessories you can book a spot at one of our Beginners Workshops or order a Workshop Gift Card for a loved one. Please feel free to sent me a message if you have any questions about my products or are interested in a custom order.

My Creative Journey

I’m a gal with Irish/Spanish heritage having lived most of my life in sunny QLD Australia.
I grew up in an artistic family. My mother was an arts writer, my father an amateur opera singer and talented quilt maker, and my brother is a furniture designer and maker. My late uncle was a sculpture in the US and my cousins are artists in New York.
I trained at The Brisbane Institute of Art over a 16 year period practicing many art forms from Drawing, Design, Sculpture, Painting, and Print making, to Gold & Silver Smithing.
After years of working in the arts and interiors industries, in 2007 I went into business with my brother and opened an art, design and interiors store in Brisbane . Here we stocked my artwork, my brothers furniture and imported hand crafted ceramics from designers whose work complemented our own designs.
We closed the shop in 2009 and I transitioned into wholesaling and retailing at boutique markets in Brisbane and surrounds. Gradually as my imported stock diminished I began creating more of my own work including jewellery and screen printed hand-made papers.
Early in 2015 I was introduced to Shibori and Indigo dyeing. At last I had found my place in the creative world. Since then I have never been so passionate and motivated about what I do. All the freedom and possibilities with this beautiful craft are just so endless that I just want to keep learning and creating pieces that reflect my life of inspiration.
I opened my original Etsy shop in 2012 listing some jewellery and screen prints, but was too busy and only listed a few items which eventually expired. I filled my new shop with Shibori work at the beginning of 2016 so please stay connected to my Lava Living shop and follow me on https://www.instagram.com/lava_living/ and https://www.facebook.com/lavalivingbrisbane/ for my latest creations and one offs.

"By embracing the beauty of human error, every piece is one of a kind."

ITEMS SHIP FROM AUSTRALIA to anywhere in the world so if your country is not listed please contact me for shipping costs

I generally ship items on a Friday. If you order on a week-end and need it urgently you can message me and I will ship it earlier if I can. If there is going to be an unexpected delay, you will be advised.

DOMESTIC:
Most items are sent by Express Post which guarantees next business day within the Express post network. If you order multiple items or a large item such as a tablecloth which is heavier than 500g it will be shipped by Standard Parcel Post. Normally you should allow 3-4 business days from when their item is shipped to metropolitan areas and 3-5 days to country areas. *Delivery time-frames specified by Etsy when you place your order do not reflect the delays possible due to COVID 19.
DOMESTIC UPGRADES:
If you would like Express post please check for shipping upgrades when you order.
FREE SHIPPING is Economy Parcel Post with no tracking.


INTERNATIONAL:.
Due to COVID 19 Australia Post has suspended Economy Post (untracked) Shipping to the USA and many other countries. So all orders will be sent with Tracking until further notice. You can just select Economy shipping and I will upgrade you to Tracked shipping at no extra charge. Until further notice buyers should allow 2-4 weeks from when their item is shipped

INTERNATIONAL UPGRADES:
If you require more urgent delivery you will need to select Express post (approx 1 week) please check for shipping upgrades when you order.
