Welcome!
Hi, I'm Mihaela – people call me Michelle. Formerly I was involved in the "Fast Fashion" system as fashion designer, make-up artist and fashion editorialist. Now I see myself as an artisan. For me, this is a matter of identity – mine, which doesn't get lost into industry but spontaneously transfer onto the material, and theirs - which is transformed, reinvented rather than turn into waste. Therefore I work with leather and preloved clothing, let myself inspired by their materiality, their stories but also their imperfections.
My idea of giving a new life to a garment goes so far as recycling not only the fabric as raw material but even the design process. You may be surprised to recognize tags, buttons, sleeves, pockets of the original item put to different esthetic and practical use, keeping the spirit of the original intention as a sign of respect.
Each piece complies with at least three of the ECO criterias:
- It's ethically produced with respect for people and the environment
- it's entirely homemade using craft/artisan skills - leather or fabric treatments (cutting, ageing or distressing, hardening or skiving, painting, etc) are handmade. Where it's possible so are the stitches. Also the branding and merchandising materials are mostly handmade.
- it's entirely or partialy recycled therefore made of reclaimed vintage garments or accessories (hardware included), fabric or leather leftovers of the industrial fashion design process otherwise considered waste.



I hope you'll enjoy our items, they have so many stories to tell!

Shipping
SHIPPING WORLDWIDE except Cina, Peru and Brasil
All items sold and already paid are shipped twice a week .

Items are shipped via Priority Mail, otherwise else stated. I chose this shipping solution for it usually get to destination quicker than parcels and, in addition, it allows me to avoid declaring the value of the item shipped so that you can save upon custom taxes.

Please be aware that this shipping solution is not trackable. If you want to arrange a different shipment solution, please contact me in advance, so that I can get quotes for your destination.

Items takes 1 to 2 weeks to get to most countries, but sometimes it can take longer, according to each different custom policies.

Even though we can't be held responsible for any delay or loss caused by the postal services or couriers involved in the shipping while they are in charge of the item, we will always do our best to try to fix any eventual shipping mishaps arising.
Refunds and Exchanges
We describe our items as accurately as possible, but please remember that they are handmade so some very slight variations may occur. Please also note that the appearance of colours may vary from monitor to monitor.
Its very important to us to make sure our customers are completely happy with their purchase therefore we carefully check up every piece before shipping so items are unlikely to present any defect at all. However if you are not satisfied with an item's quality, or feel it was misrepresented in any way, please contact us within 5 days of receiving it, and we will do our best to find a solution. Please pay close attention to sizing when ordering belts, necklaces and harness, and make sure you have measured your size correctly. Each leather item is custom sized to your measurements--refunds for inaccurate size will not be issued.

Shipping costs are not refunded. The return shipping costs are at buyer's expense.
If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me by email.

Damage

All items are packaged in a sealed - and if necessary - padded envelope so they should arrive in good condition. We can't be responsible for damage caused in transit. But please email me if you have a problem and we can work something out.
Additional policies and FAQs
We want to provide top quality materials and craftsmanship in our accessory items, and we want you to be thrilled with your purchase when you receive it. We make every effort to make sure that your item has an optimum fit, and that you have the best possible idea of what you are ordering.

Please check your messages. If your etsy email is rarely or never checked, we may have size questions that will hold up your order indefinitely until you follow up.

We welcome all inquiries for custom orders.

For custom pieces, we will create a listing with your name on it, with a description of the custom item. Please advise us when you are ready to checkout / pay for the item, or agreed-upon deposit.
