Each year hundreds of children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in North America - UNLIKE Type 2, diabetes Type 1 mostly occurs in young children and teens. UNLIKE type 2, it is autoimmune disorder and cannot be prevented or cured with healthy lifestyle or diet.
Our baby boy was only 9 months old when he developed type 1 Diabetes. What we thought was a bad case of flu turned out to be an onset of diabetic coma. He now needs 4-6 insulin injections EVERY DAY to survive and has to have his blood tested for glucose levels every 3-4 hours AROUND THE CLOCK for the rest of his life.
Perspective: The first thing many parents of type 1 children think in the morning is, 'Thank God my child made it through the night.'
Luckily, some of the brightest minds of our time are working on a cure right now and hopefully will get one in Sammy's lifetime. Please get involved, educate yourself and spread the word to others:

Just lovely and crazy comfortable. Natalia tweaked the sizing to match my measurements and this bra is truly a custom fit. The fabric is lovely, the most comfortable lace I've ever felt. And the bra design is genius, I love it!

Amazing fabric, gorgeous work womanship! Natalia makes the very best lingerie on Etsy, I am just thrilled with these. I discovered her shop a year or so ago, but encountered shipping issues. For this order, Natalia let me know that she'd changed her shipping method and I'm happy to say that it took only a few weeks to receive my lovely wonderful briefs! Thank you Natalia, these are amazing!

About

Our story...

When buying from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of PURE JOY. YOU AREN'T JUST BUYING A THING, you are buying a piece of heart, part of soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.
Using as many organic and responsibly produced fabrics as possible, we strive to keep our collections small and beautifully unique, without compromising the luxury and the outstanding quality of Econica's garments. Each and every piece of our organic apparel, lingerie or cashmere line is carefully designed and meticulously created by hand right here in Ontario, Canada. By offering you custom tailored, and many times one of a kind pieces, we want women to look beautiful when they wear our clothing, while feeling good about the way it was made.

✤ Please note - you don't need to have a PayPal account to complete your payment.
✤ Major credit cards and bank drafts are accepted thru PayPal venue.
✤ We don't begin working on your garment until I receive payment in full. No exceptions.
✤ LAYAWAYS & RESERVES are available! Please contact me for more information.
Shipping
PLEASE NOTE: If you used PayPal to pay for your purchase, I will only ship to the address you filled out at PayPal. PayPal voids any insurance and protection if item is shipped to a different address then the one confirmed in PayPal transaction. Here is more information:
https://www.paypal.com/ca/webapps/mpp/security/seller-protection-learn-more

If you already made a purchase using PayPal and then wanted to me to ship to a different address you will have to change the shipping address for that transaction in your Paypal account first.

Your garment will arrive thoroughly packaged in tissue, wrapping paper, biodegradable box and sturdy mailer/bag to withstand even the harshest shipping conditions.

Express shipping is always available for a little extra.

Once your package is dropped off at the post office I cannot guarantee a timely delivery, as these things highly depend on postal delays, custom clearance, holidays etc. But I will help you to track it, if tracking is applicable.

✤ IF you believe your PACKAGE IS LOST - I will send a replacement, please contact me as soon as possible.

I always refund all overpaid shipping charges greater than $1.
Refunds and Exchanges
Unless otherwise stated, all items are custom-made to a specific size, color and details requested by the buyer and therefore can only be returned for an alteration if possible, but not a refund. I cannot guarantee that you will like your garment, like the length, like the fit, or like the color and am unable to offer refunds or remakes for this reason. Once a custom or made-to-measure order is placed, I begin to work on it almost immediately and can only cancel an order for a custom-made item within 24 hours of sale. After that all sales are final, meaning they cannot be refunded. I do offer FREE ALTERATIONS on all Econica's custom items you already received EXCEPT underwear. For hygiene purposes, no refund or exchange/alterations can be accepted on panties/knickers/underwear.
I thoroughly inspect each garment before shipping it to ensure there are no flaws. Because of the handmade nature of Econica's clothing line, there will be slight variations in each garment, such as trim color, length and lace pattern, but I promise you it will be just as beautiful and well-made as the one in the picture. I am a perfectionist and I take pride in the quality of Econica's clothing!
It is very important to me that you are happy with your item!
I understand that it is not always easy to shop for clothing online and am flexible about your needs.
✤ IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH YOUR GARMENT - please contact me. Size adjustments and alterations are available on case to case basis. Please contact me for the instructions and correct return address prior to sending it. All items must be mailed back in its original condition within 10 days of delivery confirmation. After that timeline - please support your local tailor with necessary adjustments.
NOTE: I offer CUSTOM Clothing (not TAILORED - which requires numerous personal fitting sessions). I can adjust certain Econica's styles down a size but not up. If you have purchased too small a size you will need to purchase your garment of choice in the next size up.

Being a small business, we put a lot of effort , love and personal dedication into each and every garment and therefore cannot accept returns on made-to-order items, but will be happy to make the necessary adjustments (on case to case basis) - don't hesitate to ask! We can only cancel an order for a custom-made/personalized item within 1 day of sale, after that all sales are final. This does not apply to all pre-made, ready-to-ship items, which can be returned for a full refund minus 10% restocking fee and shipping and must be mailed back within 7 days of delivery confirmation. The item must be in unworn and unwashed condition with original tag/label intact. All items sold at a discount or SALE price are final sales with no returns or exchanges. NO exceptions.
