Mwendas Japanese Fabric and Craft Supplies

Mwendas in an independent store based in Manila, The Philippines. We are delighted to offer contemporary Japanese fabric and prints for the every day sewing and quilting enthusiast.

Our joy is in our daily search for the coveted Japanese fabric brands including Kokka, Kiyohara, Echino, Cosmo and Yuka and have had the pleasure of meeting some of the revered Japanese fabric designers like Suzuko Koseki and Keiko Goke, at the Annual Quilt Fair in Tokyo.

We are a long way from home but it has been a pleasure to call South East Asia home for over a decade now and we are honored that you've found your way to our little corner of the net.

Please stay a while and happy shopping.

You can reach me at frenee1 [!at] if you have any queries.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 8, 2017
We strive to provide quality products for your crafting needs. We carry limited yardage of each design to ensure a consistently fresh supply of material in the shop.

If you require a custom order please contact me via the contact button.

Important note on Fabric cuts.

I sell fabric by the FQ, half yard and yardage. Fabric is sold uncut if you purchase more than 1 piece.

Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
I accept Paypal and credit card payment through paypal. All major credit cards are accepted. You do not need to have an account with Paypal to be able to make payment with Paypal.

Orders will be cancelled within 3 days of non- payment unless there was an agreement reached with regards to custom listings.

Please read the help article on purchasing an item and payment if you are having difficulties:

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
All items are shipped in secure bubble mailers.

Orders typically take 1- 3 days for processing before shipment excluding major Philippine public holidays. During the holiday period and sales periods, this may increase to 5- 7 days.

Please allow 5 - 14 working days for international shipping. For Philippine buyers please allow 1 - 3 working days. During the holiday period however this may take longer.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them. We provide tracking numbers for all orders.

Please refer to your Etsy invoice for confirmation of when shipping was done. This is the only communication I provide to confirm shipping.


Shipping Addresses

Please note that all package are delivered to the Etsy address only. Please ensure that your Etsy address is upto date and current. I DO NOT use paypal addresses for shipping.

Seller will not be responsible for mailing sent to the wrong address, in the event that the Etsy address is incorrect.


Shipping Rates and Service

Shipping is via premium registered mail service which includes tracking on all orders. Please include a phone number for inclusion on the waybill.

The order tracking number will be provided via an Etsy shipping update notice once order processing is complete.

Insurance is also available on request.


Customs and import taxes

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. Mwendas is responsible for delays due to customs.



Packages may sometimes take longer than anticipated, depending on customs on both ends (country of departure, country of arrival- if customs decides to hold the package for inspection).

Perils of international shipping means delays are sometimes inevitable and unpredictable but in my experience the package eventually arrives.

If a considerable passage of time has passed without recieving your package please contact me.
