About EthelandIris

Sales 102
On Etsy since 2007

Hello my name is Lucy. I live in a tiny Victorian terraced house in Nottingham, Robin Hood country, with my husband and my cat Frankie.

I work under the name of Ethel and Iris.

Welcome….to the world of Ethel & Iris.
A world of stitching, drawing and love of all things old.

Ethel and Iris make stitched, recycled greeting cards and pictures with the environment in mind. Often, they reflect Ethel and Iris' love of nature, the seaside, wildlife and gardening.

Hello and welcome to Ethel and Iris. Here, at Ethel and Iris we have a passion for making and mending with the environment in mind. Everything you see is handmade from recycled sources; from the card used, the vintage finds and fabrics, to the corn starch recyclable packaging (you can even compost it)! If you have any requests please feel free to let me know. Thank you for taking the time to look. Love Ethel and Iris

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase please let me know and I'll be happy to refund or replace an item. Please note the buyer is responsible for shipping returned items.
I accept paypal payments for international orders. UK customers can pay by personal cheque or paypal. If you do not have access to these forms of payment please feel free to let me know and I'm sure we could work something out.
UK orders are posted generally the next day after payment has been received. I use royal mail 1st class post, which on average means your parcel will arrive with you within 3-4 days. International orders usually take around 7-10 days to reach their destination. I package the cards securely using any recycled card, envelopes and bits of padding I can find.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you wish to request a particular animal that you don't see I'd love to hear from you. I'm always happy to try new designs and would be willing to make you a custom order.
