About

Sam with Scissors

I never fitted in art academy or fashion academy (did both) and, as my teacher advised me, just went for it. With no real budget to launch my own label from, I got lost and dependable on steady jobs on payroll. I did make the occasional costume for going out and LARP, but not as many as I wanted to.

In 2010 I got the opportunity to start my own company and do what I always wanted to do. It was a rough road (and sometimes still is) but I really got my satisfaction in setting up a workshop and design and create all day.

With age comes wisdom and I think it is wise to take action against pollution and bad working circumstances. This is why all the materials in the shop are being replaced with eco friendly and fair trade sources. I check for OEKO-tex, organic and sustainable items to work with.

I'm active on instagram and facebook (@samallacostumes).

    I have been to two creative educations: Gerrit Rietveld Academie (art academy) and Amsterdam Fashion Institute (Design & Styling). I have an interest in the geeky and historical world. And I'm odd.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

If you need a different size, colour, fabric etc., you can request a custom order. I will check the availability of the materials, duration of the processing time and the price of your personalised order.

Care instructions

There will be a note on how to care for your items in your order. For more info: http://samalla.nl/?page_id=1111

Wholesale availability

B to B or wholesale does not take place via Etsy due to administrative hocus pocus. If you want to buy a large amount of my items or want to place a resell order, please contact me via info[at]samalla.nl.

Shipping and Transit times

Shipping rates are set per item. If you exceed a certain amount by ordering more items, I might have to recalculate the rates.

Gift messages: Know that I'm obligated to state the value on the package for insurance of the package.

You will receive a track and trace (if possible for your country) and your parcel is insured against loss and/or damage. You will need to sign for it. Make sure your address in etsy is correct.

You can find the transit times of Postnl here: www.internationalparceltracking.com

Note that these are estimates if the parcel is not held up for any reason (like customs).

You can request a 'rush order'. This is a priority shipping method. PM me if you are really in a hurry, so I can make a rush order listing for you.

Sustainability

Most fabric wholesalers and retailers follow the guidelines set by OEKO-TEX. I check my suppliers where I can on origin information. This is very hard to track sometimes, but I will never stop asking. I use vintage materials as well.

I have access to ecological, biological, fair trade, 100% traceable materials. Mind that this has another price-tag than most of my items.

You will find extra sustainability info in the listing on Etsy.

Packaging

I pack my items in tissue paper and cover them in a plastic foil against moist from the outside. I use an unbleached cardboard box to ship. These items are all recyclable. For some items I reuse packaging materials that were send to me.

Abandoned packages

It sometimes happens a package is returned to me due to failing to deliver or refusing to accept. Reasons mostly are a faulty address, not willing to pay customs or just not able to deliver (not home and nobody is picking it up). They call this an abandoned package. These are returned to me (and can take months).

Once I get these packages back, I will issue a refund
- MINUS shipping costs I made (check postnl.nl for rates, they are higher then what I charge)
- MINUS extra costs made for shipping it back to me
- MINUS damage costs to the product

So please check your address details in Etsy, know that customs are not my responsibility and check for pickup notes if the mail-man missed you.

International Shipping (important!)

Due to privacy setting changes, I do not get to see an email address of clients any more. If you would be so kind to add an email address and/or telephone number in the remarks with your order, I can pass that on to the courier for if they need to contact you. If you forgot, I will contact you once via convo if possible. I will still ship within my set days, with or without a reply.

I will not use this data for any other reason.
