This review if for Headband ONLY. 1. Inside lining is made out of thin suede that holds plastic band inside, it has bigger width than plastic and thus plastic does not stay inside still -- it has space and moves around making the band uncomfortable to wear. 2. it took seller 5 weeks to send it ( by the time I was ready to receive it the lady notified me that the color was no longer available). She was kind to switch or cancel. Also mentioned that she has a very busy store and that she is the only one doing the work 3. I asked for return -- she said yes but never sent me her return address. This store may have great products and great seller I am sure. But customer service is just not there. I am sorry to write this review but it maybe worth considering smaller group to serve to provide service you'd like to have

About

Our Story

Littlewings Designs is a handcrafted accessory line dedicated to small production, artisan details, and timeless quality. We believe that form and function can and should mutually coexist in pleasant harmony, and strive for this design ideal in our work. By utilizing the best craftsmanship and quality natural materials, we are making goods that mature with age and last a lifetime.

We strive to minimize waste and reduce our impact on the planet by utilizing long-lasting materials and working on a small-scale production basis. Some items- wallets, catch-alls, and cuffs, for a few examples- are best produced in small batches. Other items, such as the handbags and shoes, are primarily made-to-order. We practice our craft in this manner to give each order the individual attention it deserves, cut our materials with minimal waste, and work as efficiently as possible.

My name is Elyse Marie, and I'm the owner and designer behind Littlewings Designs. I'm a born and raised Michigander, a child of the Great Lakes, forest adventures, handcrafted traditions, and living small. Artisan craft is my life passion- I have been sewing since I was seven years old, and growing up pursued art in all mediums before landing at the Savannah College of Art and Design . My love for the handcrafted process and belief in quality products led me to major in Accessory Design. Upon graduating in 2010, I launched my line Littlewings Designs and returned home to Grand Rapids, Michigan. In staying local and putting down roots in my hometown, I am honored to be revitalizing our local craft tradition and forging a trail with my fellow creatives for a life of honest labor and artful living.

Littlewings Designs has now grown to be a member of Parliament the Boutique and Studio, a handcrafted leather and fiber house and shop in Grand Rapids, MI. Founded by Elyse in 2013, the collective has expanded to include her fiance, Jacob Vroon of Harbinger Leather Design, and her best friend, Megan Roach of Adventure Textiles.

Together, we combine our skills, machinery and resources to create a crossroads for makers and our clients, share ideas, and joyfully invest in one another's mutual success.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 1, 2015
littlewings designs is a handcrafted, artisan accessories design company, dedicated to creating inspired designs with the highest standards in materials and craftsmanship. Each piece is handcrafted in a small scale studio environment; the patterns are made, the materials are cut, and the pieces constructed by my hands. I believe in the importance of handcraft tradition, and am dedicated to creating handcrafted products of unique and functional design.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Please remember that all pieces are made-to-order unless otherwise explicitly stated in the listing. A processing time is listed for each item- this is how long it takes to make your item, and shipping is additional time on top of this. We apologize for any inconvenience, and if you simply can't wait that long, please visit one of our stockists to see our product in person. Our stockists list is available at our website, www.littlewingsdesigns.com.
Shipping
Once an item is shipped, you will be contacted with shipping carrier and tracking information. Within the United States, all items unless otherwise noted are shipped via USPS Priority Mail with insurance and Delivery Confirmation.

We are now offering international shipping. International shipping prices vary by country, and our most common destinations have individual prices listed. These are generally sent First Class Parcel Post via USPS, and take 2-4 weeks to arrive. Please allow for this in your ordering.

Shipping prices also include handling at LWD. This means that the boxes and paper are also a part of the shipping charges, as we would never want someone's lovely leather to arrive with any damage. That said, if a shipping price charged is deemed considerably out of line, you may receive a partial shipping refund.

Please know that all items are posted with receipts and delivery confirmation records kept on file with each order. Once an item has shipped, it is the responsibility of the buyer, and Littlewings Designs is not to be held accountable for items lost in the mail. Applicable insurance covers large items lost within the USA.

Buyers are responsible for ensuring accurate and complete shipping information when they make their purchase. Littlewings Designs is not liable for goods returned or lost in the mail due to any errors in address information, including those for international orders. Please be sure to include the correct information with your order!

All international duties, taxes, fees, or any other charges for imported goods, are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the handcrafted nature of Littlewings Designs products, all sales are final, with the only exception being a wrong size or a fundamental defect in the item; in this case, an exchange for the proper size or a replacement of the product will be offered.

Once an item is shipped, it is considered by littlewings designs to be delivered. The buyer may purchase additional insurance for their item if desired; please contact me and I will happily make a custom invoice for you. Otherwise, items lost in the mail after initial shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.

Custom item and wholesale order sales concerns are dealt with on a case by case basis. Please contact me with your concerns and we will try to come to an amenable solution as quickly as possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Littlewings Designs also welcomes wholesale orders. Please contact me, Elyse Marie Welcher, for further details and information.
