Welcome, thank you for coming along, and browsing and shopping at Handled with Care.

I handmake everything here in my little flat overlooking a mountain range down in Southern Spain. I believe in making things well, so that they can be used without worry and last a long time. Everything I make for children (and usually for adults) can be machine washed and loved whole-heartedly.

I mostly use cotton and linen fabric, I love the feel and look of these natural fibres. Toys are stuffed with polyfil so that they are soft and squishy, easily washable, and quick to dry. Splashes of colour maybe added to toys or bags with some acrylic felt and shiny trims. I occasionally use recycled/salveged materials, if this is the case, it will be mentioned in the listing.

All my items, like me, are vegan-friendly. I do not use any materials that have been obtained from animal sources, no wool, no silk, no leather, no fur, no mohair, no tortoiseshell, no yucky gelatin-containing glues etc.

I love making things and dreaming up new ways of combining all the beautiful fabric I come across. I'm hoping that this little space on Etsy will give me an excuse to spend more time doing just that.

I am very happy to be here.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I want all my customers to be completely satisfied with the purchase(s). I take time to accurately photograph and describe all items in my shop, and of course everything I make and design is handled with care. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase.

If you do wish to return something for a full refund, please email/convo me first to tell me that you returning something and return the item within seven days of receiving it.

I do not refund shipping charges. Please return the item(s) in original condition, the buyer will be responsible for return postage.
I accept PayPal. International customers are of course welcome. After your payment has been confirmed your order will be shipped from Spain, usually the following day, sometimes the same day, and definitely within 48 hours. Please make your payment within 5 days of purchase so that I can get your goods to you as quickly as possible.
Items will shipped from Spain within 48 hours of payment, usually sooner. All items are gift wrapped in tissue paper, then placed in a plastic bag/pastic lined jiffy bag to provide extra protection from rain and being dropped in muddy puddles or held by greasy fingers. If you are buying more than one item, and the combined postage works out at less than listed, I will refund the difference. Or you can contact me before purchasing and I will weigh the items and packaging and let you know the cost.

I do use recycled materials (jiffy bags etc) for the outer packaging, with new address labels, to reduce waste and environmental impact.
