This beautiful piece of handwork came promptly. I just love it and have placed it on top of a buffet so that I can look at it, stopping to notice the stitch quality. This artist has expert skills.

About

Het Bovenhuis

It started out as a cheerful adventure: making wool felt zipper charms and key chain pendants for children for Dutch Queen's Day and the bazaar at my daughters' school. The zipper charms and pendants made many people smile and as I loved working with felt I gradually started making felt mobiles, wreaths and garlands. This evolved into my ETSY shop.

My shop's name comes from the house where we lived at the time I started my shop: an apartment dating from 1910 near the city centre of Leiden. We now do not live there anymore, but I have my workspace in the attic of our current house. In a way it therefore still is my 'Bovenhuis'. I share it with my two daughters and their friends, who love to play there.

I enjoy the process of creating, from cutting the felt, to combining the different layers of colors, to assembling the different parts. I feel very grateful for the inspiration I derive from customers' requests and for the feedback I receive from them.

Next to running my little homespun shop, I work as an educational researcher and developer. In my spare time I enjoy working in our garden, practicing yoga and Do In and walking in the polder close to our house.

    When my daughters went to a Waldorf School I got to know felt. Whenever I can - somewhere in between working, family live and spending time with friends - I enjoy making the colorful home decoration and small gifts that you can find in my shop.

DELAYS
It rarely happens but sometimes receiving items can take longer then expected due to customs checks or because of the Holiday season.

CUSTOMS FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
When you order items above a certain amount of money, please be prepared to pay customs fees. Some countries incur these customs fees, some do not. The amount for which customs fees are being charged differs for different countries. These charges are usually collected when your package is delivered to your home or when you pick the item up from the post office. I advise you to check whether this is the case for your country and what these additional costs will be prior to ordering.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are made with love and care. I try to be as precise as possible, but I am human... If you are not satisfied, please contact me and we will work on a solution.

I try to pack your items with care. Mobiles and wreaths are shipped in a carton box. Other items are usually shipped in a bubble wrap envelope. I hope it will not happen, but in case of damage or loss of your purchase during shipping, please contact me and we will work on a satisfying solution for you.

Please note that felt items need to be handled with care. Felt garlands do not like direct sunlight when hanging in a window (the colors will fade after a period of time).
