About

Crafted by hand

While machines have brought books into the modern age, the centuries-old hand-binding techniques have withstood time. As with all arts and crafts project, it’s the human touch that adds that something special. At The Siam Bindery, we’re continuing on the hand-bound bookmaking path using some time-honoured binding techniques.

It takes us several hours to craft each book. Everything is done entirely by hand using craft and bookbinding hand tools. The pages of each book get hand-sewn to the book covers or leather medium, which means that these notebooks are unlike the mass-produced notebooks found in any stationary shop.

We source our supplies from trusted vendors, respecting fair-trade agreements and environmental preservation policies. Many of our supplies take on a rustic aesthetic and are handmade, while other products incorporate tribal, natural and modern South East Asian elements.

Our tools and stationary are well-suited for beginner bookbinders, scrapbooking afficionados, and other craftspeople.

Shipping
1. Getting your package ready
All packages are packed and shipped out within 1-10 working days of a payment's clearance. Supply items currently ship out within 1-2 days, whereas made-to-order products currently ship out within 3-5 days.

Rest assured that we take great care in packing all items before shipping.

2. Delivery address
Kindly make sure that you provide your correct/full shipping address, as well as a valid telephone number to put on your package. We ship to the address provided to us by Etsy. We are not responsible for items getting lost due to the provision of incorrect shipping details. Furthermore, we are not responsible for packages getting lost due to post office error.

3. Acceptance of package
Do take note that, with express delivery options as well as delivery to a home address, a signature might be needed when receiving your package. If a package has not been signed for and gets returned to Thailand, the buyer alone in responsible for carry re-shipping costs. Additionally, if an item has not been signed for and has been returned to Thailand, the buyer may not request or make claim to receive a refund/credit.

4. International shipping duration
All packages are shipped with Thailand Post's Airmail service and takes approximately 10 - 15 business days to be delivered. Do note that holidays and other events might have an impact on the shipping duration.

5. Tracking number
To keep the price of shipping as low as possible, none of our products ship with tracking numbers. PLEASE CONSIDER PURCHASING A TRACKING NUMBER BEFORE YOU CHECK YOUR ITEMS OUT. Without a tracking number, we are not able to pinpoint the whereabouts of your package and cannot be held liable for packages being delivered late or getting lost.

6. Proof of shipment
After we send your package, we will send you photo proof of shipment. This can be (a) a photo of your shipping receipt OR (b) a photo of your package with all post office stamps and prices on. In the case where a customer upgraded to receive a tracking number, no photo proof will be sent to the customer.

7. Shipping weight : Shipping price
Please take note that the more items you buy, the more expensive shipping becomes due to the weight of the fabric/leather. If you would like to know the prices for express shipping (3-7 business days) or freight shipping (12 weeks), feel free to let us know and we'll provide you with a shipping estimate.

Thailand Post's Intl Small Packet Air and Intl Small Packet SAL options are only applicable to packages under 2kg. Please note that packages that weigh over 2kg will be packed in and shipped in separate boxes/envelopes - this helps us keep the price of shipping as low as possible.

8. Customs and taxes
Buyers are fully responsible to pay for any taxes that may be levied upon receiving their packages. Additionally, please note that Thailand Post requires Airmail packages (packages that are sent to the United States, Belgium, Ireland, Malaysia and other countries) to be secured with staples and/or cord (and not glued or taped shut) so that they can be easily inspected by customs officers during their routine inspections.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when we collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from us, contact us, or otherwise use our services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information we Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact us directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for our mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. We use your information as necessary to comply with our obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. We share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce our agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of our customers, or others.

We generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
