I ship world-wide. All scarves are shipped by USPS first class mail. All include insurance & domestic packages include tracking.

Tracking on international packages is limited to the point of departure from the US unless you upgrade the shipping method to Priority Express during checkout.

Please note that all taxes, duties & customs fees associated with international shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.

*UK* Customers NOTE !!!- customs fees & charges seem very high for the UK. Please check with Royal Mail for more information if needed before ordering.

Shipping upgrades are available during checkout to Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express. **Free upgrade to priority mail for USA orders of 4 or more scarves (excepting sale pieces).

Free gift wrapping with card on all scarves $40 & above (except SALE pieces) Domestic orders only. International orders do not include gift wrapping due to the cost of shipping the extra weight of the gift wrapping.

ALL of my scarves come lovingly wrapped with a lovely gift label, care instructions & a description of the technique I use but you can add gift wrapping for only $3 here:

**Please note that a package is not considered lost if it has been less than one month USA orders & 6 weeks international orders**
I stand behind every piece I sell. Your satisfaction is very important to me. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please let me know as soon as you receive your parcel.

No refunds will be issued once production has started or the item has shipped however in most cases I can issue a store credit if you change your mind. This excludes custom orders.

Every one of my scarves are originals. You can be sure you will be the only person in the universe wearing the scarf you buy! no mass-production, no factories.... There will be variations in each one- that's what makes them one-of-a-kind & is the beauty of the handmade process. If the scarf has a slight imperfection, please remember to enjoy an artist's hand. All sizes are approximate.

Silk Scarves are perfect for traveling. One of my customers goes to France every year & takes a few pieces of black clothing & a lot of different scarves- Voila! Also, silk is warm in winter, cool in summer. It is sturdy yet delicate, resilient, lustrous, alive.
First, no need to dryclean. Your scarf will not suffer from this process but we will & your wallet will!

If you are traveling & it is wrinkled, hang it in a moist place (bathroom during a shower?) & the wrinkles should drop out.

Washing: A drop of mild soap in lukewarm water, agitate & then rinse. Roll in a towel then lay to dry & iron while damp. That’s it!

Oil spots? I just tried this- it is amazing! Sprinkle some cornstarch on the stain, leave 20 minutes, brush off. Repeat as necessary.

Desperate measures for stubborn grease spots- a bit of Dawn dish detergent, foamed & lightly rubbed into spot. Rinse, repeat.
