About

Handmade clothing for girls, boys and women with Jamaican inspiration!

Hello and thank you for taking time to browse my store AckeeTreeClothing. My name is Kimberly, I’m originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica, but I am now located in Charlotte, North Carolina in the USA. This is my third Etsy shop and it is an extension of my original store JamaicaStores. Both of these shops specialize in bringing Jamaican items and style to a worldwide audience. AckeeTree mainly focuses on my handmade Jamaican-influenced clothing for girls, boys and women including tutus, bandana dresses/shirts and special occasion outfits, while my original store includes authentic items exported from Jamaica.

I studied Human Resources and education at school. I worked as a lecturer for years before health issues and relocation forced me to seek out new opportunities. As such, the idea for my etsy store was conceived.

I taught myself to sew years ago and I have always made custom Jamaican clothing. I love being able to incorporate my background into my items with bold colors and simple, elegant styles. I’m big on customer satisfaction and I enjoy working on new designs that customers love. I get a thrill when customers tell me that other people have asked them where they got their outfit! I strive for excellence and it’s my goal to be the best at what I do!

I opened my original Etsy shop in 2012, but I started getting serious about selling my handmade clothing items around Easter 2015 when I opened this new store. My website customers wanted handmade clothing without waiting for it to be shipped from Jamaica. I noticed customers were searching for girls’ clothing so I started adding girls’ items, then adult skirts and finally dresses. Boys’ bow ties were introduced in response to requests for matching brother/ sister outfits and boys’ clothing.

My other etsy stores are TheFunkyPrint, JamaicaStores and ItsandBitsSupplies for sales of crafting and sewing supplies. My main business website is www.jamaicastores.com.
Feel free to send me a convo if you have questions about any of my items or would like to inquire about a custom order.

I don't accept returns
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders

No refunds but please contact me if there is a product or quality issues.

Orders will be shipped to the address you have on file with Etsy. Please check it carefully prior to submitting an order. Items re-sent due to an incorrect address will result in new shipping charges. This will be the responsibility of the buyer. There will be no refunds on missing packages due to an incorrect address or package left unclaimed.

For returns where customer has changed their mind, refund is made on a case by case basic. If agreed upon, the refund is less initial shipping costs and buyer pays return shipping. For any exchanges customers pay return shipping and reshipping costs both ways.

There are no returns for items not received by a specific date unless priority express shipping was purchased and/or as the seller I explicitly guaranteed before the date. The date must have been left at checkout in the notes or agreed on in messages. Priority mail and first class have estimated delivery guidelines and no guaranteed delivery dates. Shipments by these methods will not be refunded for missing estimated delivery dates provided by the post.

If a packaged is returned without prior authorization, it will be considered a forced return and will be returned to buyer. There are no returns on made to order items that are correctly made/made to given measurements as per listing.
Payment
Payment must be completed before an order is started. Order processing times begin only after payment is noted in Etsy dashboard. Orders using e-checks begin processing only after check clears.
Cancellation within 2 days.
Shipping
Please see shipping tab for current processing times. Some multi product custom orders will take a longer time but this will be communicated to customer before payment. Please note processing time is separate from shipping time. Shipping time is dependent on shipping option chosen.

USPS shipping time frames are estimates and not guaranteed unless the Priority Express option is chosen. International shipping may take several weeks so please plan accordingly.

International customers may be required to pay custom duties. This cost is not included in the price of the product or shipping. The duties are determined by your country and it is illegal for me as a seller to mark item as a gift.

Lost or Stolen Packages within the USA
Packages lost in transit by USPS will be replaced or refunded based on availability of materials. Item if reshipped, will be shipped using same shipping speed paid for by customer. Items are not considered lost before 30 days.

Please provide a safe location for packages at your residence.
If package is marked delivered but you cannot find it, please contact your post office You can request GPS coordinates that show exactly where package was left.

> If package is confirmed left at your residence
- check around house, such as on porches, back door etc, to see if mailman left in another spot
- ask if another member of the household may have taken it in or a neighbor took it up for safe keeping.

If package is still not found then unfortunately it may have been stolen. In this case, I recommend making a police report about your stolen item. If police are aware they may be able to locate your stolen goods or be aware that an unscrupulous person is targeting your neighborhood and stealing packages.

However, while I sincerely commiserate, I cannot replace or refund for a stolen package. I can however offer you a sizeable discount on a repurchase (varies on the product) once you furnish a copy of the police report of the report number for verification purposes.

> If package is marked delivered but GPS shows it was left someplace else than your home
- ask the post office to retrieve your mail
- If near to your location, ask neighbor to return your mail
If attempts to retrieve mail fail, I will gladly refund or replace item and ship as per original ship method.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders take time to complete. If you need your order faster than the stated times, I do have a $10-15 rush fee. Please contact before purchase to see if I can accommodate any rush order at that time.

Items are made as shown unless otherwise discussed. Items are customized as per requests in conversation or as listed.

No cancellations after 2 days. Any changes to custom requests must be made within 24 hours after payment.

Caring for African fabrics

For best results, be gentle with your African fabrics. Wash gently and tumble dry low. Hang to dry is also a great option. Iron with warm, not hot iron. Preferable to iron on reverse side of the print.

Natural Variations in Fabric

Some of the African fabrics have natural variations in the printing process. This is normal and to be expected.
