About TheFarWoods

On Etsy since 2013

We make artwork for the love of land and community

Hello! We are sisters Nina and Sonya Montenegro, the designers and makers of The Far Woods. Our studio is situated on a small organic farm outside of Portland, Oregon.

With our artwork, we seek to contribute to a great Culture Shift in which there is a land ethic, a rejection of the dominant throw-away mentality, reverence for nature, mututal aid and respect among humans and the more-than-human community, and direct connection to where our food and the things we use come from. Many of our artworks serve as educational tools and inspiration for connection to nature, food, and community. Our practice crosses disciplines, including teaching handcraft skills, beekeeping, and growing food, to work toward an ecologically-viable and socially-just future.

We use local & environmentally friendly materials & practices whenever possible. We strive to repurpose instead of buying new, believing that a well-made, hand-made, lovingly-made item is better than a shiny-new item.

We hope you enjoy what we have brought forth.

Payment

Shipping
****PLEASE triple check your mailing address at checkout!****

We currently ship items from Portland, Oregon, between 3 and 5 business days after we receive an order. Much of the time we are able to ship sooner than 3 days.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE: If you are buying multiple items, your shipping may seem unusually high due to the inability of Etsy to calculate the shipping cost for various combinations of items. If there has been an overcharge we will issue a refund for the difference.

If you feel uncomfortable paying the shipping at checkout, direct message us and we will be happy to quote you for the correct shipping amount and make a custom listing to purchase.

WITHIN THE US: Item is sent via USPS First-Class, if it is over 1lb it will ship Priority.

OUTSIDE THE US: Item is sent via USPS First Class International mail. Though we are very prompt in getting the package to the post office, shipping time can vary greatly depending where you live, please allow AT LEAST 10 days for your item to reach you. If you are an international buyer, please be prepared to possibly pay a customs fee through your postal service. We are not responsible to pay your country's customs dues and fees, nor do we claim any responsibility for whether or not Etsy alerts you of these fees during your checkout process. If your package is held up at customs in your country, please contact your postal service and/or Etsy, as there is nothing we can do on our end.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS: All customs forms will be filled out honestly and accurately. Again, regrettable, we cannot take responsibility for any duties or charges incurred by your country of residence.

SHIPPING RATES: Our shipping rates are calculated by adding the cost of postage, tax, the packing materials - tube, envelope, tape, etc - to our time.

RUSH ORDERS: Please contact us in an Etsy convo or at thefarwoods [!at] gmail.com and we will do everything we can to make sure it gets there on time.

LOST OR STOLEN PARCELS: Regrettably, we cannot take responsibility for any lost or stolen parcels, or if a customer has made an error entering their own address.
