Hi there! I'm Kate and I want to thank you for visiting my shop. I sew every item I sell from start to finish in my home on Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine. I love working with natural materials like linen, cotton and silk to make original women's apparel that is stylish now and for years to come.

In addition to this Etsy shop, I'm pleased to note that you can also find Filia items at The Merchant Company in at 656 Congress Street in Portland, Maine!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I want you to be completely happy with your purchase and I realize you can never fully see how an item will fit you until you try it on! With that in mind, I am happy to accept unworn items (with tags) for exchange or refund within 30 days of purchase. In such an instance, please convo me so that I can send you a return address and discuss the details.
I accept payment by PayPal.
All items are shipped USPS for a flat rate of $6.00 unless noted otherwise. If you’d like your item sooner, please inquire about expedited shipping for an additional cost. Please contact me if you would like to pay to add insurance for confidence in delivery.

For international orders, please contact me first. I'll calculate and customize the most inexpensive possible way to ship to your specific country.

I want your Filia items to fit like a glove, so I am happy to discuss alterations at little or no charge. Sometimes it's not possible to alter an existing item to your specifications, but why not ask and find out? I also love custom orders, so if you see something you like but want to tweak it, let's talk! Absolutely let me know of any questions or issues you might have with an order or item, so I can make sure you are as happy as can be with your purchase.
