About

Acanthus Apparel

Acanthus started as a hobby when we were dating and now we are married and Acanthus has grown with us.

Here's how it works... After we come up with ideas we each have our roles. Joshua draws all of the Acanthus designs and turns them into screens. Alyssa orders all of the blanks, screen prints and is in charge off the marketing and online sales. It's worked out pretty well for the last 7 years.

Over the years we have sold Acanthus in many locations, starting off in a high end boutique doing designer t-shirts and then simplifying things for tattoo conventions. We've also sold apparel at Von Maur in Des Moines, several artist run boutiques and tattoo studios around the country.

Currently we don't have enough time for wholesale or consignment so we focus on stocking up Etsy, Alyssa's store Vitae Design Collective and our booth at tattoo conventions.

Please contact us if you are not satisfied with your product. We will gladly provide a refund or exchange for any unworn items in original condition, domestic only and less shipping charges. Credits or replacement items will not be sent until we receive the item to be returned. We need to be notified of returns or exchanges before you return the item and need to receive items within 14 days of original payment. No returns and exchanges on custom orders.
Shipping
All items will be shipped within 3 to 5 business days unless a change is specified in my shop announcements. We will contact the buyer for custom orders and arrange shipping.

I ship most items USPS first class. Larger items are usually upgraded to priority mail at no additional charge. All packages shipped in the US will have a tracking number.

If you need to upgrade your shipping or add a signature confirmation then please message me before you purchase so I can add these items at an additional cost.

If you live in Des Moines and want to pick up your order then use coupon code LOCAL to get shipping deducted from your order. I will message you to arrange pickup.
