It is absolutely gorgeous. And the workmanship is fanTASTIC! Beautiful neat even stitching, perfectly dressed corners, it really is a work of art. And I just love the little kimono detail of the golden and turquoise obi! TOO CUTE!

About

Beautifully handmade, designed to be different...

My designs are a blend of contemporary style and traditional crafts, often including a nod to the past in my selection of materials. Each item is carefully created to be just that bit different.

I love what I do, I love every item I make, and I believe it shows in the quality of my work.

As well as creating original fabrics by painting, dyeing and felting, I like to make use of rescued vintage textiles and good quality fabric remnants. I often pick up fabric pieces on my travels and receive others from generous friends. Whatever the source, they are all treasured and are the inspiration behind many of my designs.

Please enjoy your visit.

Shipping
ORDER CONFIRMATION
I will contact you within 24 hours to acknowledge receipt of your order and to let you know the expected shipping time.

ORDER PROCESSING
Most orders are packed and dispatched within 1-2 working days unless otherwise advised in the listing. For custom orders, the processing time will be agreed with you before the order is accepted.

SHIPPING
UK orders are shipped by Royal Mail first-class post; overseas orders are shipped by Royal Mail airmail. Higher value orders (above £20) are usually shipped by a tracked or signed-for service; the costs of this are included in the standard postage & packing costs shown. Optional postage upgrades are available at checkout.

DELIVERY TIMES
While most packages arrive within the expected/estimated time, some can take considerably longer, and you should allow up to 3 weeks for UK deliveries and 6-8 weeks for overseas deliveries, depending on your location. At busy times of the year, there may be delays clearing customs, so allow a bit longer. However, please feel free to contact me sooner if you are concerned about your order.

CUSTOMS/IMPORT FEES
Customs declarations for overseas shipments will disclose the actual sales value of the goods as shown on the invoice/delivery note. Please do not ask me to mark orders as 'gifts' on the customs declaration, as this is not allowed and would be fraud.

**IMPORTANT**: International BUYERS are responsible for all customs charges, local taxes, VAT, handling fees or any other import charges levied. Some countries also have restrictions on importing certain goods - it is the BUYER's responsibility to check the import rules and fees that apply in their own country before ordering. I cannot be held liable for goods confiscated, destroyed or returned by customs.
Refunds and Exchanges
FAULTY/DAMAGED GOODS
If goods are received in a faulty or damaged state, or are not as described, please contact me immediately. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and will work with you to put right any problems.
Under the UK Consumer Rights Act 2015, you have the right to reject a faulty item within 30 days of receipt and receive a full refund. After 30 days you may still be entitled to claim a repair or refund but other terms apply.
It may be necessary to provide evidence of damage, so please keep the original packaging. Photos of the damage to goods and packaging may be requested in the event of a claim.

ORDER CANCELLATION
Under UK Consumer Contracts Regulations, you have the right to cancel your order within 14 days of receipt of goods and receive a full refund.
Please message me or contact me by e-mail before returning any goods.
Returned goods must be unused and adequately packaged to prevent damage in transit. If returned goods show signs of use or damage, the amount refunded may be reduced to compensate for loss of value.
Return postage is the BUYER'S responsibility and I would recommend obtaining proof of postage in case goods are lost.
Refunds will be given within 14 days of receipt of returned goods or proof of postage. These rights do NOT apply to custom-made, personalised or bespoke items unless the goods are faulty/damaged.

REFUNDS FOR NON-DELIVERY
Occasionally packages are delayed, and some deliveries - especially overseas deliveries - can take considerably longer to arrive than expected. Please be patient - it's very rare that packages are actually lost, so there's a good chance your order will eventually arrive.
Please remember that the postal system gets very busy around holiday periods, so do allow extra time for goods to arrive, or consider upgrading to a priority service.
I usually allow up to 3 weeks for UK orders and 6 weeks for international orders before refunding for non-delivery.

INCORRECT DELIVERY ADDRESS
If an incorrect address for delivery is provided and goods are returned to me as undelivered, I will either refund the original item cost (excluding shipping) or resend the goods at the buyer's expense.
If an incorrect address for delivery is provided and goods are lost/not returned to me, no refund will be given.

How will my order be shipped and when will I receive it?

UK orders are shipped by Royal Mail first-class post; overseas orders are shipped by Royal Mail airmail. Higher value orders (above £20) are usually shipped by a tracked or signed-for service as standard. Optional postage upgrades are available at checkout.

Shipping times vary by country and I can only give an estimate. Most orders arrive within the estimated time without any problems, but they can take longer and you should allow up to 3 weeks for UK orders and 6-8 weeks for overseas orders, depending on your location. Please feel free to contact me sooner if you are concerned about your order.

What about customs/import fees?

Customs declarations for overseas/non-EU orders disclose the invoice value of the goods. Please do not ask me to mark orders as 'gifts' on the customs declaration, as this is not allowed and would be fraud.

**IMPORTANT**: International BUYERS are responsible for all customs charges, local taxes, VAT, handling fees or any other import charges levied. Some countries also have restrictions on importing certain goods - it is the BUYER's responsibility to check the import rules and fees that apply in their own country before ordering. I cannot be held liable for goods confiscated, destroyed or returned by customs.

What do I do if my order gets damaged in the post?

If you receive damaged or faulty goods, please contact me immediately. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and will work with you to put right any problems.

Under UK/EU consumer law, if goods are damaged or faulty when you receive them, you have 30 days in which to return them for a full refund. After 30 days you may still be entitled to claim a repair or refund but other terms apply.

It may be necessary to provide evidence of damage, so please keep the original packaging. Photos of the damage to goods and packaging may be requested in the event of a claim.

How do I return goods if I need to?

Under UK/EU consumer law, you have the right to cancel your order before it has shipped, or within 14 days of receipt of goods, and receive a full refund.

Please message me or e-mail me before returning an item.

Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. I recommend obtaining proof of postage in case goods are lost in transit. Refunds will be given within 14 days of receipt of returned goods or proof of postage.

These rights do not apply to custom-made, personalised or bespoke items unless the goods are faulty/damaged.

What happens if my order doesn't turn up?

Occasionally packages are delayed in the post or at customs. Please be patient - it's very rare that packages are actually lost, so there's a good chance your order will eventually arrive.

The postal system gets very busy around holiday periods, so do allow extra time for goods to arrive, or consider upgrading to a priority service. I usually allow up to 3 weeks for UK orders and 6-8 weeks for international orders before refunding for non-delivery.

Custom and personalised orders

I'm always happy to discuss custom orders, so please message me if you would like something made in a different size or fabric.

Many of the fabrics I use are vintage or limited availability, so it may not be possible to repeat an item or use the same fabric for something else. However, I do have a large stock of fabrics and may be able to suggest an alternative.

Handmade fabrics, such as my handmade felts and hand-dyed silks, are generally not repeatable, but it may be possible to create something similar - not always immediately, but sometimes special things are worth the wait.
