Shipping
International customers, please include your phone number for customs in the order note. Orders are handled in order of receipt and cleared payment. Wrapped/marked mari are completed from partial construction when ordered. All temari and prepped mari are personally handmade, so please understand that this time and effort can average about a week depending upon items & specifications. Custom items (i.e. special colors for mari, made-to-order temari, etc.) require additional time to prepare. Shipping is by USPS Mail, most appropriate mail class. Insurance is available on request. If you have specific needs such as gift deadlines or need-by dates, be sure to include a note on your order, or check ahead with an email or Etsy convo. We'll do all we can to help. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Items listed in the TemariKai Etsy Shop are intended for the individual hobbyist and personal collector. If you need multiples of an item for classes, etc., please get in touch and we will work together to meet your needs rather than placing multiple small orders. Prepared mari are intended for limited beginner learning only, not as a substitute for learning these skills. In no circumstances are prepared mari to be used for resale either as is or as completed temari, or in any judged, evaluated or public showing event such as exhibits, fairs, shows, classes, or in online images. Making temari includes all steps of making the mari, dividing & marking, and stitching.
