St Austell, United Kingdom 36 Sales On Etsy since 2008

5 out of 5 stars
(17)

Announcement   Handmade from the up-cycled and repurposed in a zero waste environment.
Each bag is slightly different. I make them with traditional craft skills and love. I find unwanted textiles and yarns from a variety of places: house clearances, boot sales, unwanted work-boxes, etc. I then carefully sort and wash each one before turning them into something new.

I love beautiful things but don't want to bring any more stuff into the world. Each bag is made with the fabrics I have available at the time, so if you want matching items please use our custom service, ordering them ALL TOGETHER. Your purchase will be securely packaged in something that was used before and I encourage you to reuse it.

we now have a shop on www.truro.com/byethicals too

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the way the UK postal service calculates their charges(by weight and size), I do not know the cost until I get to the post office.
I am gradually including UK post and packing in the price (as it is getting increasingly complex to calculate in the UK postal system and I like to buy knowing what the total cost is)
I have listed a postal charge that will cover all eventualities.
ANY EXCESS CHARGE WILL BE REFUNDED THROUGH THE PAY PAL SYSTEM.
DISCOUNTS ON POST AND PACKING FOR MULTIPLE BUYS

A great big welcome to all!
I hate waste, so recycle everything! So I re-use it, down to the smallest scrap, or compost it. I will not put it to landfill if I can help it!
Please expect variations, fading, fraying and old boxes/envelopes in packing. We invite all our customers to recycle the packing too!
I make it so you can wash it but use a delicate cycle as it contains vintage stuff.
I am as truthfull as I can when writing my descriptions and I attempt to get the colour on the picture as close as possible but I'm not a computor wizz. So apologies for any difference.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I only accept Paypall. Then you can pay in your native currency with confidence about online security.
I despatch within 48hrs of purchase (but mainly sooner, but I don't post at weekends)
Shipping
We will ship anywhere!
I recommend that customers opt for insurance, especialy on higher value goods, as I cannot guarantee what happens in the postal system. You will recieve ane email to tell you when and how it has been dispatched. Please leave a suitable time, before reporting a 'no show' to me.
Because the british postal charging system takes into concideration both weight and size I state a charge to account for the variation that comes from the truly handmade. If, once I'm at post office, the charge is considerably less, I will refund the difference, always.
Refunds and Exchanges
We strive for 100% satisfaction. If for any reason you are not completly satisfied, let me know.
We can sort it out, to your satisfaction.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love making that special, one off, just for you!
Brides-to-be send me your dress fabric, I'll make it to match.
