Announcement   NOTICE!! July 11, 2016 - Negotiations between Canada Post and its employees are ongoing. Mail is flowing at the moment. If you place an order, I'll make sure to advise you if there is any chance that your shipment might be delayed.

Flatlanders provides an array of personal body care products, amazingly intricate felted soap, and beautifully simple and modern bamboo soap dishes. Our handmade creations make thoughtful and long-lasting gifts for friends, family and oneself.

Our products are safe for you, your children, and the planet. We have a strong commitment to providing products and packaging that can be composted, reused, or recycled.

Our felted soaps use virgin Merino, bamboo, and/or Corriedale wool and our very own handmade soap.

**A note on made-to-order felted soaps: We may list examples of felted soaps that can be customized to suit your preferences. Soap scent, colours and finishing touches can be as you want them to be. These items usually take a week or two to make and ship, though we try to get them out in less.
We will contact you via an Etsy convo to confirm the details and give you an estimated time to completion, then contact you again when the item ships.

Please also note that we have wholesale prices if you would like to sell our soaps in your retail store or buy in bulk.

Thank you for visiting Flatlanders Soap Co.!

We are based in the heart of North America, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where we make bar soaps with simple ingredients, liquid soaps with body and earth friendly ingredients, and other natural hair and body care items. We carry both felted and regular soap.

We make our soaps as affordable as possible. We think that everyone, regardless of income, should have healthy, non-toxic body products available to them.

We encourage you to ask us about wholesale pricing, as buying in bulk will help you save on shipping costs. We give discounts for bulk purchases. We recognize that bulk purchasing is not always affordable for people living on a low income so we suggest ordering with a group of friends.

We are big fans of buying locally and ethical purchasing. Of course, we live closer to the arctic circle than to the equator so a lot of ingredients are impossible to get in our local community.

We do use local beeswax and oats. The organic Fair Trade coffee used in our Coffee & Oatmeal soap is roasted locally at Planet Bean Coffee http://www.planetbeancoffee.com/, we purchase the dried lavender and chamomile flowers from Organic Planet Worker Co-op http://www.organicplanet.coop/, though we are hoping to grow our own this year in our newly created lasagna garden.

We do strive towards being fully organic, but affordability is currently a higher priority.

We also try to purchase from co-ops whenever possible, particularly worker co-ops, as we believe co-ops offer a more equitable workplace.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
We take Pay Pal, money orders and well concealed Canadian cash as payment methods.

If you choose to pay by money order or cash, payment must be received within 7 days of purchase. If the money order or cash payment is not received within 7 days and we are unable to make contact with the buyer, we will cancel the order and re-list the item for sale. Also, please be aware that there is a 7-10 day waiting period after we receive the money order and prior to shipment, to allow the money order to clear the bank.

For Pay Pal or cash payments, we ship orders within 2 business days of received payment, thus if you wish to cancel your order it must be done within 2 business days of ordering.
Shipping
Shipping charges are approximations. Any overages will be refunded promptly after shipping via PayPal.

Additional item shipping charges are based on orders that combine soap and soap dishes. Purchases of multiple soap dishes, without a soap purchase, will result in an overcharge of shipping costs, because shipping charges are based on the greater size and weight of the soaps. We will refund overpayments once shipping costs have been calculated.

Our default shipping method is via Canada Post at surface rates. If you require faster or insured service, or prefer another delivery company entirely, please contact me via email to work out the details.

*Surface rates to Canada from Canada estimate delivery as within 4 business days for major urban centres and non-remote regions. Northern or remote regions can take up to 8 days.
*Surface rates from Canada to the US estimate delivery as within 12 business days.
*Surface rates to International locations estimate delivery as within 4-6 weeks.

Canada Post does not guarantee delivery within a certain time frame for surface mail.

Expedited service options are available at extra charge as per the carrier option selected. Please contact us for an estimate.

If you are interested in buying multiple items, please contact us via email and we will give you a complete shipping quote.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

If you are concerned about your item being lost or damaged in transit, please request insurance at your time of purchase. We regret we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items once they are sent out. Please note that we ship items using padded packaging where appropriate.

We ship within 2 business day of payment (with the exclusion of money orders, see above for for information).
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to hygiene issues we cannot do refunds or exchanges. If you are truly unhappy with your purchase, we will offer you a 10% discount on your next purchase if you contact us within a month of purchase (for Canadian buyers) and 2 months of purchase (for United States and International buyers).

We would suggest if you have allergies, sensitivities or are particular about the soap that you use that you contact us before ordering and we can discuss the soap that is best for you.

We also do custom orders so that you can get exactly what you want.
