On Etsy since 2013

Hello Hello.

• HEMLEVA HISTORY •
Launched in the Autumn of 2013, HEMLEVA is focused around bringing greenery into the home and into our daily lives. HEMLEVA is currently based out of Seattle, Washington, and is entirely run by Samantha Leung.

Originally launching under the name Handmade Sam*Made, the company and brand launched with a mix of both traditional and original handmade brass mobiles, wall sconces, ornaments and more. Samantha shares her passion for plants through her Air Plant Dating Profiles, General Plant Care, and through her original Plant-inspired Enamel Pins.

As both of the geometric and botanical pin collections grew, the number of stockists grew as well. You can now find Samantha's handmade brass mobiles and plant-inspired enamel pins in over 200 stores around the world.

To this day, each and every mobile and wall sconce is handmade by Samantha. Every plant is hand inspected and cared for, and each pin is designed and packaged by Samantha out of her Seattle studio.

• A LITTLE MORE ABOUT SAMANTHA: The artist, designer & owner. •
Samantha has always been an artist and a maker. She learned how to crochet at the age of four, learned how to wood burn at six, was screen printing at eleven, oil painting at twelve, developing her own film at fourteen, and hand pouring candles at fifteen. When she was sixteen, her along with two other friends started a bespoke handmade costume business. Alongside this exploration of different mediums, Samantha was working consistently part time starting at the age of fourteen.

Samantha graduated from Drake University with a BA in Law, Politics, & Society - an interdisciplinary study of the effect of Law, Politics and Society and how each discipline drives change in the other. She also graduated with minors in Sociology, Psychology, Art and Politics. All the while serving as the Art Director for the campus satirical magazine, DUIN, She simultaneously served as committee chairs for over 15 different organizations while attending Drake University, as well as successfully lobbying with a Non-Profit for the well-being of Iowa citizens.

Following graduation, Samantha took a year to teach English and American culture in Northern China. Upon returning, she decided against pursuing law school. She married her college sweetheart, adopted a cat, moved cross country from Chicago to Seattle, and decided to start a business.

I hope that you find something that you enjoy in my store.

Shipping

Please allow up to 4 weeks for your order to arrive within the domestic US.

When an order is in transit, I am unfortunately not able to retrieve it, access it, or to change your address after it has shipped. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all navigate through these new USPS delays.

On Friday, April 17th, 2020, the USPS announced that there will be shipping delays that will impact all HEMLEVA orders.

USPS Priority Mail: The 2-3 day delivery window will be extended to 5-8 business days.

USPS First-Class Package Service: please allow up to 10 business days for your order to be delivered.

USPS First Class Mail International: please allow up to 90 days for your order to be delivered.

AUSTRALIA & RUSSIA • I am unable to ship packages to Australia and Russia at this particular point in time. If you check out and the package is shipping directly from HEMLEVA, your order will be canceled and refunded.

On January 22, 2021, this 3-minute listen/read stated that the USPS is still experiencing incredible delays: https://www.npr.org/2021/01/22/959273022/theres-no-end-in-sight-mail-delivery-delays-continue-across-the-country

Of course, the USPS always tries to do their best to deliver packages as quickly as possible. For more information on all domestic and international service changes, please do check out the USPS website directly.

__________________________________

HEMLEVA can currently ship anywhere within the United States as well as to several countries internationally. If your country is not included on my current shipping list, please let me know and I might be able to add your country as well!

⌂ SHIPPING & TURNAROUND TIMES All himmeli are handmade to order and will be shipped within 4-10 business days after payment clears. Pins and plants typically ship within 1-5 business days. Please note that turnaround time is in addition to shipping time. Please see above for 2021 updates to shipping times.

All orders may be delayed during a holiday season due to volume and capacity.

All packages will be shipped through the USPS Priority Mail or First Class which will include delivery tracking. Shipping to countries outside of the US also includes insurance and delivery confirmation. Domestic orders $10 USD and under may be shipped via USPS First Class Mail without a tracking number.

⌂ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS & TURNAROUND TIMES The buyer will assume all responsibility of customs duties, taxes, and fees. I am unable to alter the price of the good or to relabel the item as a "gift". Please allow up to 90 days for your order to arrive. If you are interested in greatly reduced international shipping and are willing to assume all responsibilities for any potentially lost shipments, please let me know.

If you are from a country that uses characters, please use the Latin Alphabet when entering your shipping address to ensure that the package will arrive to the correct place.

⌂ SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION / for neighborhoods where packages are commonly stolen If you are aware of package thefts in your neighborhood or in the past, then I would recommend adding on signature confirmation to your order for the added security. Otherwise, if you do not select it, you are assuming responsibility for the package as outlined below.

⌂ LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages; however, a claim will be filed with the USPS. If a package is returned to us due to a customer error (e.g. incorrect name, address or package refusal), the customer will then be responsible for any re-shipment charges.

If a package is lost or stolen, there will be a claim made for it as soon as possible, which is 30 days for USPS (if it was sent through Priority Mail). Which is also why I ask for you to please allow 1-3 weeks to receive your delivery & a little longer during peak holiday periods.

If you would like a reshipment of a new order of goods due to it being lost along the way, you will be responsible for shipping charges once more. Otherwise, I are more than happy to cancel your order, and to follow through with attempting to file a lost package claim, with the initial shipping cost being assumed by the purchaser.

⌂ ORDER REFUSAL We reserve the right to refuse an order at any time.

⌂ ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? If you have any other questions in regards to shipping policy, please feel to send me a message and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Frequently asked questions

Are Air Plants included with Himmeli orders?

No. Traditionally each Himmeli does not come with an air plant. It is meant to be a minimalist, sculptural piece. It also allows for the Himmeli to be shipped internationally.

If you would like to add a plant, you can mix and match the air plants from my shop to suit your particular piece and tastes. Subject to availability.

Wholesale availability

What do I do if my package is lost or stolen?

We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

returned packages |
If a package is returned due to a customer error (e.g. incorrect name, address or package refusal) the customer will then be responsible for any re-shipment charges.

lost or stolen packages |
A claim will be made for it as soon as possible, 30 days for USPS. In general, please allow 1-3 weeks to receive your delivery & longer during holidays.

If you would like a reshipment of a new order of goods due to it being lost along the way, you will be responsible for shipping charges once more. Otherwise we are more than happy to cancel your order, & to follow through with attempting to file a lost package claim, with the initial shipping cost being assumed by the purchaser.

When will I receive my item?

1-10 Business Days from the day of ordering.

Why?

All of the brass himmeli pieces are handmade to order. That process includes cutting, polishing, assembling and attaching hardware all by hand by the shop owner herself.

This ensures that the piece you receive is exactly what you request, and that the brass is as bright and shiny as possible.

If you need your piece sooner than that, please send me a message, and I will do our best, within reason, to accommodate your request.

What are Tie Tack Backs?

The Tie Tack Back is brass plated. It is an incredibly secure option, and perfect if you want to wear your pin on your Jacket or a bag. They essentially "lock" into place and a mechanism has to be moved in order to release it from the pin post. It is a high-end option that is great if you are concerned about losing your pin as you wear it.

Custom and personalized orders

If you would like products that are listed at hemleva.com to be pulled and listed for you here through Etsy, there will be a fee added to your order to account for the fees that Etsy charges sellers.

Thank you for your understanding!
