Getting to knit, photograph, design, sew, AND manage an office is what makes my work as an craftsperson so exciting!

Creating simple garments lets me share my art with you in a way that is highly usable and useful! I love the lines of simple, plain fashion, and its ability to showcase fabric. I care a great deal about the health of the environment, so I print on mostly organic fabrics!

I currently live in the Rust Belt of Pennsylvania; and although I’m a New Englander at heart (my hometown is in Connecticut and I went to college in Vermont), I dream of moving back to Colorado (where I lived for a year and a half) for a time, before finally settling in an Amish farmhouse in northern New York state, with my family and a few farm animals.

Please visit my Etsy shop! (Link found to the left, "NinaLaPorta" under "Shop Info"). Thanks!

*All of my pieces are made to order, unless otherwise noted.

*Once your payment is received, I’ll get started on your order!
*I currently only ship within the United States. If at all possible, please consider supporting your local makers!
*I’ll use UPSP Priority Mail to ship your order, which means that once your order has shipped, USPS says that it will arrive at your house within 3-5 days.
*I always request tracking service at the PO—it helps to ease both your and my mind, and to resolve any shipping misfortune that could occur (see below)!
*I’ll always send you a shipment notification on the day that I ship it out to you.
*Shipping and handling costs include packaging, postage, handling, and USPS package tracking.
*Shipping Misfortunes: I never consider a lost or damaged package to be your fault or responsibility. After 2 weeks of the date I shipped your package, I will reship your order—and it’s on me, of course. I’m not able to take responsibility for unclaimed or undeliverable packages.
Refunds and Exchanges
*I want you to be thrilled with your purchase, and if that’s not the case for any reason, I’ll gladly accept it (in its new, unworn state, with its tag still attached) as a return—just make sure to postmark it back to me within 7 days of my shipping it out to you! You’ll be responsible for return shipment charges at the post office. If you decide to return an item, please contact me so I can be expecting it. Thanks!
*After 7 days, I can only accept items that have been found to have a structural defect (this hasn’t happened yet, but in the event that it does, I will accept your return and exchange it free of cost once I have received the defective piece). If you need to return your item due to an error on my end, I will cover shipping fees and exchange the item for you.
*If you receive your order damaged, please contact me immediately, so we can resolve the issue quickly (see Shipping Misfortunes, under "Shipping")!
