I bought this skirt for an upcoming Bellydance performance. Farnaz was so awesome to work with and did a great job of reimagining this flamenco skirt for a belly dancer. It fits perfectly and is very comfortable and soft.

I absolutely fall in love with the design and the colour. It's a tailor-made skirt, perfectly my size, so it's very comfortable to move. I recommend to the all Flamenco dancers!

Very unique skirt design. I love those diagonally set roses in different colors. I received a lot of compliments. I live them.

We sadly can not be responsible for damage caused during the shipping. We try our best to protect our creations from nasty things like bad weather, being caught under heavy parcels or getting mangled while being handled by the post office. If you are concerned, lets talk insurance.

REFUNDS:
Sorry our lovelies, there are absolutely no refunds unless you receive an item in true error.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
There are no refunds on custom orders. We will have a lot of conversations and exchange of ideas and sketches and photographs before everyone is happy with a decision so once the item leaves our studios, this is it loves. If you do change your mind before an item has left us, please do not hesitate to message and we will figure it out, even it may add a wee bit more time to the item being finished. Which now leads us to:

LEAD TIME FOR CUSTOM ORDERS:
Lead times to complete a custom order are anywhere from 2-4 weeks on average, but can take up to 2 months depending on the design. Also our head seamstress works with one hand only so speed is not where her strength lies, it is in her outstanding quality. :)

Thanks so much for your patience in advance and here is a hug and a smile to make the wait a bit better. :D
Additional policies and FAQs
Please be reminded of a few things:

Headdresses:

1. Every single headdress in our shop is unique. We most likely will not be able to create headdresses that are identical to one another but we can aim for similar looks: partners not twins!

2. Every headdress is created using found treasures from treasure boxes - from our travels, our past secret lives, our shopping adventures to second hand/vintage stores, or goodies that friends and family give us to resurrect. What does this mean for you?

3. Our guarantee: It means NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD will have a piece like yours. It is IMPOSSIBLE to recreate an item - even WE can't do it! (Not that we even want to mind you ...)

4. It also means, that when metal bits are used in various pieces, from head pieces to accessories on tops and belts and skirts, often we are not sure of the kind of metal.

5. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE beware of metal allergies. If you are not sure, do a convo.

6. If there is something in our shop and you don't have the money right now, convo us and we may be able to put a hold on it for a determined amount of time. We reserve the right to decide if we want to reserve the item.

7. If something you are wearing while you dance, breaks or bits come off, send it back to us (your shipping cost) and we will repair it for you for no additional charge. Please make sure you save all the bits that have decided to come free (rare .. but some beads can go wild like that ...). We will cover the cost to ship it back to you.

8. If we have to use new bits to replace things that have been lost first be aware that we may not be able to replicate things as they were originally because - again, all the items we use in our creations are one of a kind and unique. Also, depending on how extensive this replacement is, we may or may not charge you additional fees. If ... *GASP!* goddess forbid, this happens, we will talk and communicate before we can all agree on a solution.

9. A note on feathers used in our creations - we do NOT obtain/buy feathers that we can not verify their cruelty free status. Every feather used in our stuff is salvaged through our exhaustive combings of thrift shops and found objects in friend's attics. Obviously we can not verify where those original feathers have come from, we do however feel a little better by up-cycling these long forgotten and otherwise trashed pieces.

10. Not much more to say - other than ::Thank You!::
