Actually my family and I have temporally relocated in Bangkok, Thailand since Jan. 2015 due to my husband's work. Because of this all shipment from Thai, which may takes longer to leach you. I use UPS for all shipment so please feel free to discuss shipment options. Although, all payment is my us accounts.

My goal is 100% customer satisfaction. I am happy to take your order made. Please feel free to ask personal gift or kids birthday etc... Again, most of fabric from Japan and Africa or Thailand so, limited but I make it as possible as your image, colors so on. All shipment from Thailand so please understand it will be takes a time sometime. I will use USPS for all shipment.
