Hello and welcome! My goal is to provide friendly and professional customer service at Mountain Ash Design. I love to use vintage and recycled fabrics in good condition along with some new designer fabrics, too.

My mission is to enjoy designing and creating items to increase your domestic bliss and personal style without increasing our carbon footprint (much). I guarantee that my work is ethically and independently produced in the USA. My empolyees and I earn a livable wage, so you can feel really good about wearing my designs.

I strive to conduct "green" practices in many aspects of my business, too. Packaging can consist of mailers I have sewn from a local hand paper-maker's sturdy seconds. Production waste (i.e. scraps too small to be used) is headed for a rags recycling facility in Canada.

Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your shopping experience here at Mountain Ash Design.

If you feel your skirt doesn't fit well, a live fitting session with me may help immensely. My skirts are not difficult to tie on, but the method is not a common one, so it's not always obvious. Please contact me to schedule your personal fitting session via speaker phone or via video on Skype or gmail.

If you have tried on the items you purchased, asked me for help if the tying mechanism isn't coming to you easily, and the garment still just doesn't work for you, I am happy to accept a return or exchange.

To initiate the return process, please contact me before mailing an item back, within a week of receiving it. Items must be returned in their original condition.

Refunds are minus shipping and handling charges and are made via PayPal.

Custom orders and items that have been custom altered are not returnable.
Additional policies and FAQs
I offer custom alterations at reasonable prices:
Hem/shorten a skirt = $14
Add a patch pocket = $10 per pocket

Free gift wrapping! I can send your gift with an extra handmade paper gift bag and tissue paper, with a ribbon closure.
