Received my Black and Pink Floral Make up Bag 2 days ago. I already had the Zipped Make up Bag in this fabric as it's so beautiful. Helen made a swift delivery and kept me informed of it being sent etc. It is so beautiful. Helens items are so professionally made and no one will be disappointed. I'm actually going to purchase the pencil roll next. If there is anything you want and cannot find I know Helen will help. Thankyou for another superb product Helen. I'll be back soon x

About

Olganna - Bags of British Design

I am Helen and I am Olganna.
Fabric is just fab and I love making stuff with it!!

It starts with a lightbulb moment, a bit of scrap fabric and lots of enthusiasm. I immediately know if it's got legs and just needs developing. If I'm not feeling it, it's a gonner.
So, I make it, un-pick it, tweak it, un-pick it, tweak it, repeat. Until it's looking just about right. Then I use it, fill it, empty it, open it, close it. Think what might go in it, make sure it will, empty it. Repeat. From there a pattern is born.

That's product development, it was my career before the kids and what I love doing.
Working with designers to develop fabulous products took me world wide inspecting factories large and small, good and very bad, advising on production, design and quality.

Such is the process of development embedded in me that I never feel like a product is complete. I am always looking to improve it. I see it all as a little challenge, whether that be decreasing stitch count, adding a seam or identifying an area of weakness. It keeps me thinking, trying out new techniques and I just love it, I really do.

SO WHATS IN A NAME ?? Olganna means such a lot to me. It's very personal. Olga is my Nanna, she's 92 next and Anna is my grandma and remembered in my prayers.

Payment - Paypal is the best and easiest way to protect buyer and seller, but I will consider other options. So please convo me if Paypal is not for you.

Shipping
CONVO ME FOR PRICES FOR FASTER SHIPPING METHODS.

Will ship within 3 working days by Royal Mail on items that are ready to go.
If the item is made to order it will take 2 days to make and ship next day so 3 days from order it will be despatched. I will always try to better that. If it's urgent please convo me to see what I can do.

Custom orders - we will agree this via convo prior to payment so both parties are clear.

Tracking is not used as standard as its quite a lot more expensive. I have had no issues with lost parcels so far. A parcel is not considered lost by Royal Mail for 60 days so refunds will not be considered until that time. This allows time for the parcel to arrive and means that I am able to claim the insurance on it. If a parcel has not arrived please check to see if a card has been left that you have missed (this is common).

Specific deadlines - I have given the best information on delivery times that I can so cannot be held responsible for missed deadlines due to slow mail delivery. Buyers please allow plenty of time for delivery for that special date and consider upgrading shipping method to a faster, tracked delivery.

If you require a signed for / quicker / different shipping method just let me know, I can accomodate.

APPROX SHIPPING TIMES - FROM EXPERIENCE THE SHIPPING TIMES TO SOME COUNTIRES ARE AS FOLLOWS -
INDONESIA - 2 - 8 WEEKS.
ITALY - 1 - 4 WEEKS.
AUSTRALIA - 2 - 5 WEEKS.
