Frequently asked questions

Refund Policy

I do not refund for incorrect sizing. All accurate relevant size information is given in listings, and should you require more information, please ask prior to purchase. I am more than happy to give detailed measurements of my pieces to ensure a perfect fit.

I do not refund for change of mind.

I do not refund for "buyer remorse". I am happy to place an item on hold for 48 hours while you make up your mind prior to purchase. Please message me if you wish to place an item on hold.

Modifications to existing listings.

Please check listing for ACTUAL GARMENT SIZE before purchase. You will need to leave room to fit you. Some items can be modified for size. Please ask prior to purchase, not after. Due to the individuality of my pieces, some cannot be replicated or recreated in other sizes, but may be altered. However, simply starting a convo may answer any and all your questions.

Can you respond to my message converting sizes from AU to my country?

I won’t respond to messages asking me to convert the sizes given for my garments. My sizes are given in Australian women’s sizes, or actual garment sizes in centimeters.
You can easily convert sizes using the table here;

A quick search on google will turn up centimeter to inches converters.

Are all your items made in Australia?

No, not all my items are Australian made. They are all designed by me, but I use offshore production partners to bring my ideas to fruition. When I list items, I am required to provide my production partners, but this does not always show in the listing. Some of my partners are:
PILLOW PROFITS (Boots) manufacturing base in China and shipped from China.
REDBUBBLE (Cards, socks, badges, pillows, throws) based in USA with worldwide fulfillment centres including China, Australia, the USA and others.
PRINTFUL (leggings, tees, hoodies) Based in USA and with fulfilments centres worldwide including Latvia, China, Australia and the USA.
PRINTIFY (Journals) USA based, worldwide fulfilment centres as above including China.

Why do you source products from China?

Because frankly, many of the products I wish to customise and offer to my customers are simply not available in Australia, or the costs involved make production totally non-viable. In fact, in trying to have my products made in Australia, I discovered the companies I was getting quotes from were having the product made in China anyway and simply onselling it to me at a marked up price.
Items such as the boots and journals are simply not available to be manufactured in Australia in the quantities I need. As I don't hold stock and work on an on-demand basis with most of my design products, China is usually the best place to seek suppliers. I've found without exception the quality and service available, once the research is done, is amazing.

What's your policy on upcycled garments?

All my upcycled pieces come with a lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials. I repair both any damage due to these, or if you have an accident! Just pay shipping of your piece back to me, I'll fix it, and I'll ship back to you free of charge.

How long does it take items to get to me?

Depends what it is and where you live.
Items I make ship from Australia, and within Australia processing takes 3-5 days. After that, it's in the capable hands of Australia Post. Domestic shipping usually takes less than a week from the time I drop it at the post office.

International (anywhere but Australia) is subject to a few factors:
- COVID has slowed everything down. An extra 4 - 6 weeks to anywhere from Australia is an overestimate but be prepared in advance and keep this in mind.
- In the case of my print-on-demand design products, your purchase is custom made, then shipped as soon as it's ready. You get tracking details as soon as they're available. 3-6 weeks is normal under present circumstances.
