Eco store for sustainable living, recycle & shop green
OriginalCloth's Shop Policies
Welcome my little shop - Original Cloth. Here you will find handcrafted items, all made with a focus on reducing waste, usually in one of three ways.
- A lot of the fabrics and yarns I source are recycled from clothing, bedding, and soft furnishings which are no longer fit for purpose, and would otherwise be thrown to land fill.
- I also use new materials, which are created with minimal or no impact to the enviroment, such as organic cottons, or yarns spun from recycled material
- By creating reusable, biodegradable items to replace disposable, non-biodegradeable items such as shopping bags, plastic notebook covers, ipod covers, pencil cases
Apart from this, it's really important to me that everything does what it should - a cushion should be huggable, a bag should be durable, a quilt should be washable and so on!
I will, where possible, identify in product descriptions, the sources for the materials used. If you want a bit more information about a product, I will be happy to hear from you
Craft supplies are also available in my shop. From extreme knitting needles to french knitting dollies, take a look for some inspiration at fantastic prices
payment should be made by Paypal. You can do this with a credit card, even if you don't have your own Paypal account. Follow the instructions at checkout, and let me know if you have any questions
I post everything next working day, 2nd class within the UK. All overseas deliveries are Airmail. I will obtain proof of posting, if you would like any further insurance, let me know before completing your purchase. As with everyone else, I rely on the postal service to deliver your parcel. If anything goes amiss, let me know as I can provide you with proof of posting
If you would like a different mail service, please let me know. I will be glad to work out the best option for you
If your delivery address is outside the UK, you may be liable for customs duty/import taxes on delivery. Payment of any such duty/taxes will be your responsibility.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're not happy with your purchase for any reason please contact me. I do accept returns.
I really want you to love your purchase, so before you buy, please ask if you are unsure about any of the features of a product.
You can return any item, other than custom made items, within 14 days of receipt. I will refund you the total amount you paid for the item including outward postage, but you will be liable for any return postage costs
