Absolutely gorgeous dresses. I ordered 2 for my daughters who were flower girls. Fast response and delivered with time to spare. Although I think they were both 2 sizes too large, so order smaller than normal if you're from Australia

About

A children's paradise at Return To Eden created in the paradise called New Zealand

Hi my name is Anne-Marie and I want to thank you for sharing and being a part of my dream, Return To Eden. It is my aim to help you meet your dream of dressing the little people in your life in the most exclusive and gorgeous children's clothing that is lovingly designed and made here in New Zealand, as well as designer pieces from Europe, United States and Australia. Each piece is either designed or selected by me.

I live in Cambridge in New Zealand after moving from the hectic city life in Central Auckland where I was brought up and lived most of my life. I have traveled overseas and as a teenager lived in a few different places abroad including Australia and Nauru Island, but I truly do love New Zealand for its beauty and easy going culture. Due to a change in life, a move to the Waikato happened in June of 2010. With this change also came a change in my career.

I have had five children who are now embarking on their own life journeys other than the baby who is 17 years old and still at High School and so also still living at home. With four less humans to have to care for on a day to day basis I now have the time to fulfill some of my dreams. While my youngest was still a baby and my eldest child was only 10 years of age, I started University where I excelled and was determined to soak up as much as I could. I have studied papers in everything from Physics and Biology to Linguistics and Social Work. I have trained to be a nurse, studied a Bachelor of Science, worked as an in demand nanny for many families in Auckland, especially Devonport and Ponsonby and worked in accounts. However my true calling in life is to be creative which is where I am at now. (P.S. I truly miss all of the children whom I nanny-ed so if you read this - I still love you all very much).

One thing or another has led me to start up my own Children's clothing label which, for a number of reasons I have called Return To Eden. To start with, the meaning of "Eden" will help you understand somewhat my reasons:-
Eden (meaning)
1. any delightful region or abode; paradise
2. a state of perfect happiness or bliss
(dictionary.reference.com)

When I first thought of Return To Eden, I had in mind the book/movie The Secret Garden - a place where children go to be free of any worries, have the freedom to be who they are, where it is beautiful, where they can play and be happy. A sanctuary in the world that is a wonderful place full of promise and strength for them - where they can celebrate being a child. I thought of beautiful flowers, colours and textures. It evoked the image of crisp cottons, soft cottons, satins, silks, muted earthy colours, fun colours, girly colours, pretty and elegant. But also to be unique and embellished with flowers, crystals, beads, embroidery and ribbons. To use materials sourced both from New Zealand and worldwide from right around the globe but only materials that are of quality.

I chose the name Return To Eden as it also refers to the garden (keeping in mind The Secret Garden) and the beginning of life - a place that was natural and untainted. It reminded me of the life of a child - the birth of that child, the beauty and their precious innocence. As an adult we realise the ups and downs of life and ohhhhh how at times we long for the simplicity of being a child and with such basic needs. My hope is that by experiencing Return To Eden you too will enjoy it's beauty and feel the joy and whimsy of being 'oh so child like' again.

Return To Eden - a paradise where I enjoy making your dreams come true in regards to having your child dressed beautifully in clothing that will delight the senses of touch, feel and sight and be something that is so beautiful it will be displayed or tucked away for a future child or as an heirloom.

I believe that one of the gifts we are born with is the ability to appreciate beauty - and that can be in any one or all of the five senses that we posses. Things can look, taste, sound, feel and smell beautiful to us. For most of us one of the most over whelming moments of experiencing beauty is when we lay eyes on our babies. That first hold stimulates all five senses (although with taste I would liken that to the first kiss we give our child). I am sure we have all experienced that feeling of watching them sleep and thinking how perfect and beautiful they are (and of course the MOST perfect and beautiful in all the world).

We endeavour to teach them and share with them, the beauty of life. We want them to be free to grow and be the beautiful person that they are created to be. And we want life to be filled with rich and rewarding experiences for them, no matter how complex or how simple. However, we always want them to have happiness and love.

It is important for Return To Eden to offer the personal touch and I want every customer to feel not only happy with their purchase but to know it was made with love.

Big hugs

Payment
I only accept Paypal however, if you live in New Zealand or have a NZ bank account then I can accept internet bank deposits. Please convo me and I will give you bank account details.

It would be appreciated if payment is made at time of purchase or within 24 hours, but if you contact me, I will gladly hold an item for you for a predetermined amount of time. If payment is not made within that time I will cancel the sale.

Custom orders will only be started once payment is received.
Shipping
Items are shipped from New Zealand. I will use the cheapest option available and if the cost is less than what I have quoted to you then I will always refund the difference. Please do remember though that on almost all occasions the cost of packaging will also be included.

I will not have tracking or insurance included in the price unless you specifically request it and then I will find out the cost and let you know prior to payment.
All purchased items will be packed and shipped within 1-3 business days - usually as early as possible. Please be advised of the time difference.

I will inform you if there is a hold up. However, if it is a custom order then there will be a longer time so as to make the garment but this will be discussed with you and I will always maintain excellent communication regarding this.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please let me know if there is a problem with your order. I will do whatever I can to make you a happy customer!

REFUNDS:
Refunds are only available in the case that the item is different than described or faulty, but you must contact me within 24 hours of receiving the item.

For all returns:
Items must be unworn, unused, and in their original condition.

Please check sizing and colors to ensure they are what you want as I will not refund if a mistake has been made unless it is on my part. If an item needs to be returned then postage is the responsibility of the purchaser.

If practical we can look at exchange but due to the availability and uniqueness of supplies this might not always be possible. We can discuss this.

All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos.

I am sorry but I can not accept returns on custom orders unless again the fault is on my part and very apparent.

I am happy to discuss any issues you might have and to answer any questions. I am sure we can always resolve things so that all are happy.

Please check back as items will be added regularly.

The most important thing is clear and regular communication and so I will always answer questions and check my convos frequently. You are important to me and I feel honored that you are interested in my work so I want to respect that.
