About

It all began in a little one room schoolhouse in Michigan...

As a young child, I grew up in what had once been a one-room schoolhouse on the corner of Alber Road and Bethel Church in the idyllic farmlands of Saline, Michigan. My mother handmade nearly all of my clothes and I spent my time making good use of them. I was a tomboy who could often be found hanging from a tree by a gorgeous, home-sewn dress my mom had spent hours making. Life was simple—I spent much of my time in the garden, exploring the woods, tending the chickens, or chatting with the friendly farmers. Pretty soon, however, the old farmers began to vanish and housing developments were being planned in what used to be a cornfield.

As the farmers fields began to disappear, my parents made the difficult choice to move to the Pacific Northwest in search of the personal freedom Idaho could offer. They packed us all up and moved across the country to a beautiful old farm in Moscow, Idaho. The twelve acre property afforded us the space to grow much of our own produce and to begin selling some of the surplus. We five children thrived on homemade meals and the beauty and solitude of one of the country’s most beautiful places to live.

I returned to Michigan while still in my teens, working in my grandparent's gardening business and learning their trade. It was a magical time of life, exploring the woods, playing, working hard and enjoying the closeness of my Michigan family. It was there my grandmother first taught me to sew, beginning with a dress for my eighth birthday. Eventually, though my grandparents hated to give me up, they encouraged me to pursue higher education and I returned to Idaho to get my bachelor's degree. Uninspired by the typical careers available to English majors, I drew on my grandparents' advice to work for myself and pursue my dreams.

Today I live in the mountains east of Moscow where I share too much of my garden with elk, deer, and the occasional bear who blunders into the yard. I began sewing again as a hobby and now find more and more of my time devoted to researching organic cotton and talking to the American companies that mill them. I have developed a personal relationship with many of the artists I source and am excited to share them and their incredible talent with you!

I hope you take pleasure in this handmade article. It is a reflection of my personal journey that really began back in the one room school house and has brought me to this gorgeous area of the Palouse.

Shipping
Domestic shipments usually arrive anywhere from 3-5 days. In order to protect from undelivered or lost packages, we recommend Priority shipping. No claims can be initiated on packages shipped via First Class. Orders over $100.00 will be covered with complimentary UPIC insurance. Priority shipping automatically includes $100.00 insurance.

Once the package has been shipped, Alber Road has no control over progress or treatment. Your package is the responsibility of USPS. If you have questions about your package, please contact your local post office immediately. We would like to assist you in any way possible, but cannot be responsible for the USPS actions if a package is marked delivered,

IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP F I R S T C L A S S M A I L:
Selecting USPS First Class mail is the cheaper option, but be aware that it can take anywhere from 3 days to 5 weeks in extreme cases. Claims cannot be made on First Class Mail items and I cannot guarantee delivery. If you are on any sort of deadline, please select Priority mail. Claims for loss or damage CANNOT be made on First Class Mail.

If you pay with paypal, the address you provide at checkout is the only address we are authorized to ship to. If you provided the wrong address and catch it before we ship, please messages us right away so we can fix the issue. This may require canceling the order and relisting it. Be prepared that your shipment may be delayed while we wait for payment. We are not responsible for lost packages due to wrong address.

I N T E R N A T I O N A L O R D E R S:

First Class mail is even more difficult to guarantee on international packages. Any concerns about arrival dates? I strongly urge you to purchase Priority shipping.

Please message me if you have questions about shipping charges or upgrades. Buyers are responsible for all fees associated with importing goods into their country.

I want you to love your purchase and be 100% satisfied. If, for some reason, you are unhappy with your purchase or it arrives damaged, please contact me within one week of receipt.
Refunds are only issued for unused items in original packaging. Shipping costs are non-refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
Washing Instructions:

I love having access to thousands of small-time fabric designers who you won’t see anywhere else! The earth-friendly printing process is done with water-based pigments and is prone to more fading due to the way knit fabric stretches. As your bodysuit is washed, you’ll notice it become softer and softer and maybe fade a little. To combat that, I strongly encourage you to wash your garment by hand, or in the washer on gentle (avoiding laundry loads with jeans or other heavy and abrasive items) and use phosphate-free detergents.

All fabrics and finished items are pre-washed using earth-friendly laundry detergents free of scents or chemicals! All-natural wool dryer balls, washed free of lanolin, are used as fabric softening.
