Frequently asked questions
Informations sur les tailles

The size chart we propose has been made up using Cameroonian women measurements. As we work like a clothing workshop, we have been taking several measurements. The size chart is only for you to confirm that the size you choose goes with your measurements. As we usually specify, do not hesitate to give us your measurements if not in our size chart. Thank you

Commandes sur mesure et personnalisées

We do made to order items, which means we use the measurements you give to produce the item. That is to say the item is not yet ready, before you order. It is when you order that we start producing the item. We do not make ready to wear clothing. Our clothes are only made to order. Thank you.

We gladly accept both returns and exchanges. But please, notice that you may have to take in charge the return costs. This is because we are under made to order/made to measure system.
