Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions

Why are your products unevenly colored and have unsightly stains?

We use organic dyes for fabric dyeing. For example, it can be shredded and dried spinach leaves, beetroot powder, turmeric or mustard powder. We brew all these gifts of nature in hot water and use them for dyeing. This process involves sea salt, baking soda and some other ingredients that we do not disclose, as it is our little professional secret. You understand that while dyeing fabric in large containers and stirring by hand, it is impossible to achieve an even distribution of color. Therefore, you see these spots and color transitions in the final product.

Why are your napkins so wrinkled?

We strictly adhere to our rustic organic style and send you products with minimal influences of modern technologies. We respect the environment and want to minimize the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Therefore, you get the products that are as natural as possible, wrinkled, with raw edge. My products are air dried.

Why can't I use your runners and napkins several times?

Everything happens because our goal is to give you a beautiful product using processing that does not harm nature. That is why we use thin fabrics (cotton and gauze), since they can be dyed by hand in relatively small containers with organic (natural) dyes and pigments. These pigments are not resistant to agressive modern detergents and cannot withstand repeated washing. You can use runners and napkins several times, but be ready that that the color will become less saturated after washing. The gauze may lose its original appearance. As to napkins, they will serve you longer, as they are made of thin, but dense cotton fabric.

Your ribbons are different in color compared to my order last year. Why?

Of course. And that's okay. It is very difficult to obtain the same shade from batch to batch using a pigment of natural origin. Almost everything effects the dyeing process! From the temperature of water, its chemical propeties (hardness, pH, mineralization) to the crop from which the pigment was made. If the summer was dry, the color of the pigment in the plants will be more saturated, and if the plants were harvested in the rainy autumn, then we expect a weak color on the fabric in the future. In this case, it is better to place an order for the required number of ribbons or runners to be sure that they were dyed in the same batch. If you have to make an additional order of fabric, be prepared that the shade will be different.

I received a ribbon, and there is a stain on it! How can this be?

This is our favorite natural pigment, which has left its mark on your ribbon. When we dye the fabric for future ribbons, it looks like this - a huge saucepan is on the fire, in which 7 meters of silk or cotton fabric is cooked together, for example, with spinach powder, in order to get sage ribbons in the end. The temperature is higher at the bottom of the pot than at the top. The color pigment can "stick" in some places on the fabric, and we get stains after dyeing. The decision was made- tapes and runners will be natural and original, the way water, nature and man create them. Many buyers fell in love with our products precisely for their originality and naturalness.
