About piperewan

Sales 816
On Etsy since 2006

I turn heads.

Piper Ewan the business began in 1998 when I was laid off from a bank job that came with a shiny severance package. I saw the opportunity to start my own business and so I ran with it! I joined Etsy in 2006.

My business has gone through many transformations as I have evolved as a designer. From custom wedding gowns, to garters and ribbon flowers, odd design projects like the Doug Fir Lounge stage's woodgrain backdrop or Nike press kits, costuming many modern dance performances, to my handmade lingerie and corsetry lines I'm developing now; I have learned a lot over these years. I try to push past my own limitations to make carefully designed pieces that fit, move and turn heads towards the people who wear them.

I love hand stitching and finishing. All of my pieces have echoes of the past in them, but cannot be placed in time. I love living in the present where I can borrow from the past at will.

Returns and exchange details
normally, i do not take returns with these exceptions: DAMAGED (in transit, upon arrival, or under certain conditions of use) MISSING (your package never arrives). if an item is DAMAGED IN SHIPPING, please contact me immediately; preferably with a photo of the damaged item and its packaging. if the item has been insured (i insure items/orders costing over $100.) a claim will need to be filed with the carrier. IF AN ITEM IS MISSING and is not delivered within the timeframe the post estimates. DAMAGE if an item "breaks" under less than normal "wear and tear," please contact me. in general, i will repair or in extreme cases replace the item. if an item does not fit, because you mis-measured, you don't like it or you changed your mind, that is not grounds for replacement. once you purchase an order THERE ARE NO REFUNDS unless I am at fault in fulfilling your order. i am a very small company, and i cannot afford to eat returns like chain stores can, so please choose wisely. i make every effort to photograph everything, and represent their colours as best as i can, but computer screens vary. if you need an exact match, convo me, and i will be happy to make arrangements to mail swatches to you first.
how quickly do you SHIP? usually within 1-3 business days after i receive payment (no items are shipped on weekends or holidays). most items are shipped usps first class; with some higher ticket items and most special orders are sent us post priority mail. the shipping method is noted in each item's description. if you would like to upgrade your shipping, please let me know BEFORE purchase. the customer is responsible for any customs fees. i will not lie on the customs form, so please check your restrictions for your country of origin here: http://pe.usps.gov/text/Imm/immctry.htm. i will not ship items that are restricted; restricted items will have their sale cancelled, and be promptly refunded.

See estimated times provided by the shipping company.
Additional policies and FAQs
do you have more COLOURS available? yes.

can you make MULTIPLES of the same thing, so twenty of my friends can have one just like mine? most likely, i'll see what i can do.

i am in love with this one, but it is SOLD, could you make me one just like it? let me see if i have more of that fabric and/or ribbon.

how often do you post NEW ITEMS? sorry to say, i am kind of sporadic. i usually wait until the last minute when most things are sold, but i am trying my very best to be better. however, i am very good at answering inquiries; most often i will get back to you within a few hours. once in a great while it will take me a day or two.

how long does it take you to make and ship SPECIAL ORDERS? it depends on what it is, and how many orders i have pending. for flowers and garters 1-2 weeks, for clothes 4-8 weeks. sometimes sooner. i will let you know how much lead time i need (or if i can meet your deadline) when you send me your inquiry. i will take no returns on special orders.

do you take CUSTOM projects? sometimes, but they have to be just right.

do you do TRADE? once in a great while. if i have hearted you or one of your items, it is a good bet. and i am a sucker for vintage lace, certain jewelry and fancy yarn. feel free to ask!

i am a store owner, do you do WHOLESALE? yes. please contact me, and i will put you in touch with my sales representative. please include your email, so that she can send you line sheets. the prices here represent my full retail prices.

do you do CONSIGNMENT? no. i have reasonable minimums for wholesale (please feel free to inquire). i have found that even in the best circumstances that if a shop is not invested in my product line, they have no incentive to sell it, care for it or keep track of it. if you truly value my work, and believe in it's salability, you will buy it outright.

can i come VISIT you in person? i don't have an open studio at this time.

do you have a PET CAT? yes. her name is minou ewan (sadly our president and overseer piper died in 2018). we do separate her and the items so that they are not blessed by more than her gaze.
I only use your information as it pertains to each particular purchase to contact for clarification and to ship your items.
