About

Babies need books

I have a love of reading and a firm belief that children need to be exposed to books early. Before becoming a mum I worked as a graphic designer in the UK and later as a primary school teacher in Australia where I now live with my husband and two children.

"Chewable" cloth books were first made for our baby boy using photos of him printed on rainbow coloured cotton pages. Then I made another using photos of different coloured trucks and cars and tractors placed on matching coloured pages. I also wrote and illustrated a little cloth book for our boy, called "Who Loves You Baby", based on family photos.

Now I have a growing range of rainbow coloured cloth photo books, plus a range of black and white cloth photo books. I also make custom cloth photo books. I love making these as they are quite unique and special and mean a lot to the families who receive them.

Payment
Payment must be received before your cloth book can be created. Should there be a problem with your order I will contact you ASAP. Should you need to cancel an order please let me know ASAP.

International customers please note that my prices are set in AU (Australian) dollars. Etsy automatically convert these to your local currency so prices go up and down slightly with the current exchange rate.
Shipping
I use Australia Post to handle shipping of domestic and international orders. Custom cloth photo books are sent registered/tracked. Other orders are sent via regular mail; shipping upgrades are available at checkout.

Customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer. I am required to declare the actual value of the order on the customs form.

UK Buyers:

When purchasing from my shop for shipment to the UK please note that you may be charged VAT taxes at the time of delivery. The payment of these taxes is the responsibility of the purchaser (you). I cannot be held responsible for taxes that are charged in your country for the import goods purchased from my shop.

Refunds and Exchanges
Your cloth book is made with care and to the best of my ability. I love my little cloth books for babies and want you to love them too! However, if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason please contact me to organise a refund or replacement. All I ask is that returned items be in their original unwashed/unused condition and that you pay the return postage/shipping. Thank you.
Additional policies and FAQs
PACKAGING
Your cloth book/s will be sent in a biodegradable clear cellulose bag and paper 'Tough Bag' envelope. Please compost or recycle.


WASHING YOUR CLOTH BOOK
Please wash your cloth book/s before giving to baby. Simply place your book/s in a pillowcase or washing bag and machine wash on a COLD & DELICATE setting. Line dry in the shade. Cloth books made from cotton fabric will fade slightly over time; this is normal because cotton is a natural fibre. Drying your cloth book in the sun will contribute to colour loss as will front loading washing machines due to the increased tumbling action during cleaning.
