Additional policies

Q. Why do we ship 5 business days after payment?
A. I run my business and travel quite a lot teaching classes and workshops. This 5 day window allows me time to get home and process orders. I appreciate your understanding.

Q. Do you do custom orders?
I find it difficult to do custom orders long distance and prefer to work with clients who are able to come to my studio for fittings and design consultations. If you are located in the Greater Bay/ San Francisco Area, you can contact me for my current availability.
