Announcement   April May June is an artist-run boutique designer devoted to providing high quality, one-of-a-kind clothing articles and accessories. Owner and designer Valerie Skakun was originally to have been named April May June Skakun, but fate intervened and she has since carried on this quirky word combination with her unique clothing and accessory designs.

Throughout the April May June collection, themes of the natural world abound – from the colorful cracks and crevices of “Magmatic Earthquake”, to the interstellar depths of “The Universe is Expanding”. Feelings of spring serve as another connecting thread, evoking the annual rebirth, bright color palette, and lush textures we all associate with April, May, and June.

April May June offers a diverse portfolio of patterns. While the patterns can be replicated, the designs are hand-dyed on cotton in small batches, ensuring that each individual piece is handcrafted separately with dedication to detail, and that each article will be unique and distinct. Every step along the way is done by hand – the pre-wash, vat dye bath, hand-painting, and dye transfer prevention treatment are all carried out with loving hands in a Brooklyn backyard.

April May June currently works with clients such as Found My Animal and Free People to produce custom dye jobs.

All April May June products are handmade in Brooklyn, NY.

For all contact e-mail valerieskakun [!at] gmail.com

* Refund Policy * We will happily refund purchases if you are unsatisfied. If you wish to return or exchange any item please advise us within 7 days of receipt. Items must not have been used or damaged in anyway. You will be responsible for the cost of postage for returned goods.

While I cannot say that the "item is not as described", I can say that there is an important detail left out of the item description, i.e., this item is made from a knit cotton (tee shirt material) not a woven cotton. There is a huge difference. Do not expect this scarf to have the same drape as the scarf pictured. Not to mention there was a discrepancy in the size. The seller did allow me to return the item, however the shipping costs were all on me.

I am always happy to answer any questions that one might have, and would have answered Nancy had she asked me if the scarf was a knit or woven cotton. This scarf is described as "100% cotton" because it is just that. Cotton can be knit or woven, and this is a knit cotton scarf. The one in the picture is a knit scarf as well. I am not out to scam my customers, my conscience would never allow me to do that, which is why I have return policy that if one is unhappy with the item, they can return it for a 100% refund. Nancy was upset about the fact that she had to pay return shipping, but I read her shipping policy and it states, verbatim, "... if for any reason you are not happy I will accept returns, although you will be responsible for shipping it back to me."
