Announcement   THE ITEMS YOU SEE ARE PROTOTYPES.
Here's how it works:
to order your own PERSONALIZED pair in your EXACT size:
1. PURCHASE THE ITEM (PROTOTYPE) YOU WANT IN THE PHOTO
2. SEND ME A MESSAGE WITH YOUR MEASUREMENTS
*WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE &
*HIP CIRCUMFERENCE (widest point including your butt!!) in inches or cm.
(standard sizes do not apply as the jeans are recycled which can affects the original size.)
*tell me desired length or style (high waist, boyfriend, skinny etc.)
*& ANY DESIGN DETAILS YOU WANT!

VOILA!
As soon as I receive payment confirmation plus your size & info,
we can get started creating YOUR UNIQUE DENIM :)))
I will do my best to give you as close as possible to the style and design in the prototype
but remember: the charm and philosophy of my brand is that every piece is recycled (different) & UNIQUE!

each piece is custom made with love :) !!!
cruelty free.

You can send me your own denim, but the price is the same.
cost is for the artwork.
just make sure denim is light enough to show art!

Your jeans are your second skin, so why not get them ink'd—better yet— fink'd? Each upcycled piece is hand-painted by me (artfink) and totally unique: a wearable, hand-washable, one-of-a-kind work of art, created exclusively for YOU! Each piece is used, worn, scarred, destroyed, loved, discarded—
inked & embellished, personalized, signed, dated & lightly scented. Any theme is available in any size. Choose one of my designs—or convo me & I'll work with you to create your one-of-a-kind piece! New ink every day...

YOU THINK IT, I'LL INK IT.

handmade with love xoxo

About

art meets fashion... artfink celebrates secrets, scars and second chances

brand philosophy
(secrets, scars and second chances...)
artfink jeans are a one-of-a kind, wearable work of art. this brand celebrates life and its canvas is recycled denim. artfink jeans have been used, worn, loved. their distress marks are real—not fake. It’s personal history is what gives each pair its unique charm. scars, marks, stains & "damage" tell of days well lived, well loved, well worn—regardless of any original brand name or label. jeans are your second skin and this denim has been entirely hand-ink’d, giving it new life. artfink is about embracing second chances—at any age. each pair has a name. each pair is signed. each pair is lightly scented. each is bejeweled. each piece is unique! Marks, scars, symbols, secrets, scents—life’s little mysteries are to celebrated—especially the second time around…

NOTE: Items pictured are prototypes: be sure to convo me with your exact measurements, wishes and other details. every customer will be super happy with their artfink'd garment and good communication is essential for a great personalized piece :)
WELCOME ALL FINK FANS!

My pieces are all handmade and each one is unique! Your piece is especially created for YOU, by hand, with love and care. I use denim in all sizes and conditions and no two pieces are exactly alike, including the recycled brand (I use many) and the fade color of the denim or state of distressed-ness. Please keep this in mind if yours does not EXACTLY match the image you see in my shop. Rest assured each piece is beautiful and made exclusively for YOU! Convo me to insure a perfect fit :)

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
SORRY, NO REFUNDS. NO EXCHANGES. Please understand that a great deal of time and handiwork are involved in creating each custom piece. Please make sure to communicate your size & exact measurements, wishes, and any other details CLEARLY to me in writing (not to Paypal or Etsy), to insure that everything will be perfect. ORIGINAL STORE SIZES CAN VARY WITH RECYCLED CLOTHING, due to wash & wear. That's why EXACT measurements are key to a good fit. Rest assured, your item will be beautiful and made with great care, attention to detail and craft. Quality control by me. You will love your one-of-a-kind artfink piece!
Payment
I accept credit cards and PayPal. Item will be shipped only after payment is received.
Shipping
Shipping costs vary of course, depending on your location and the quantity (weight) of items ordered. If you have a question about shipping costs, just contact me.
All items will be shipped to you within 7 business days after payment has been received.
I cannot be responsible if your item is lost in the mail. This rarely happens, but unfortunately once in a while things occur beyond anyone's control. If you wish to pay for Fed Ex shipping to INSURE safe and speedy arrival by this private carrier, please let me know and the cost will be added to your order.
Additional policies and FAQs
Make sure you send me your EXACT measurements and any other specifics so that a good fit and happiness are guaranteed! Hip circumference at widest point (including butt) in inches or centimeters is essential, as stated store sizes of recycled denim can vary.
Please contact me if there is any problem with your order. (Not Paypal.)
IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: An additional $10 per size will be added for each size above a size 8. Please understand that in no way is this "size-ist". Fink'd shorts look great on any size—or age! It's simply a fact that since all my work is made by hand, the more fabric there is to cover, the more time and materials are required.
Thank you.
BELTS: If you want an artfink belt, it's $25.00 additional. The cost of the shorts is $195.00 without belt, $230 with belt. All shorts come with Swarofski crystals and charms :)
