These shirts are the best! My son will wear nothing else. They are high quality and last for a long time. What kid does not need a cape shirt :)

These shirts are so lovely. I ordered two custom shirts, I was picky, and when they arrived I was blown away. The quality and attention to detail are impressive. They have washed beautifully over and over. My superhero is a happy little guy. Thanks!

rediscovered. reinvented. reloved.

Thanks for checking out our little shop! We hope you find something you can't resist for a special small someone.

banbutsu, which means ‘everything under the sun,’ combines whimsical inspiration with a love of textures and colours to create sweet things for toddlers and children.

We are two mamas with a shared addiction of fabric and all things lovely and tactile. Where ever possible we use recycled and 'found' materials, so all our pieces are unique as well as eco-friendly. We make and design all of our pieces personally in our home studios in the heart of Fernwood, Victoria, B.C.

When not sewing, we can be found sitting happily atop mountains of freshly laundered recycled sweaters sipping coffee and dreaming starry-eyed about our next creations...

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
WE REALLY HOPE YOU DON'T NEED TO RETURN ANYTHING: But, you may return any item within 2 weeks of purchase if it has not been used and is in its original condition. Once we have received the item back from you, we will refund your money through Paypal (minus any shipping costs). You will be responsible for all shipping and insurance costs associated with the original delivery and the return.

To avoid the need for returns-- if you have any questions about any of our items, i.e. exact measurements, an interest in further photos, etc, please please please CONVO us prior to purchasing. We are more than happy to give you as much information as we can so that you have a good sense of whether the piece is what you are looking for.

Most of all, though, we want you to be happy with your purchase, so if for whatever reason you have a problem or concern, please contact us so we can see if there's anything we can do.
IF YOU LIVE IN VICTORIA: Please let us know by filling out the 'message to seller' box on the Etsy Order Form. We can then make arrangements for delivery/pick-up and cash payment at the time of delivery or pick up, or CONVO us before purchasing, and we will reserve the item.

We require payment, in full, to be made via Paypal within 2 days of purchase. Please note, all prices are in US Dollars.
