About

romantic natural fiber sleepwear and lingerie for every day occassions

I created Sandmaiden for women like me, women who appreciate something beautiful and comfortable to put on as a means of transporting themselves from the busyness of the day into a place of joy and rest. Garments made from natural fibers ground us more intimately to our selves and our environment, providing more comfort and beauty than synthetic materials. The fabrics in the Sandmaiden collection are 90% natural with about 10% modern, functional, fashion forward content like lycra or and soft wood pulp based fibers.

The focus of this sleepwear line is not on seduction but rather a connection to inner sensuality which I feel can become lost in our modern lives. Sandmaiden is about belonging back to yourself at the end of each day. Most of these garments are designed as a celebration of every day occassions.

All Etsy orders are cut by me by hand from my original patterns and then constructed and finished by myself and/or my assistant Rei. My retail shop is stocked by myself and Rei and at this time my daughter Sage keeps our shop and does the shipping, also a little bit of sewing.

thank you for noticing Sandmaiden!

Payment
Upon receipt of payment your order will be shipped within 1-2 business days or crafted within a the promised time frame, see the announcements on the front page for current turn around times but usually 1-2 weeks. Please allow an extra 2-3 days for delivery in the USA and 2-3 weeks internationally.

I appreciate your patience with the process of having your order produced, I know it is chosen to wear or give at a certain occasion and time is always of the essence. I typically do not accept rush orders because it would mean pushing others orders back but occasionally when we are working on samples I can do it.

Your order will stay in que in the order it was received, on the Monday after your order it will be sorted with the others from the previous week based on both date and color. I cut about fifteen pieces every day including lots of samples, some of the pieces are assembled by me and the others by my part time seamstress Rei, I organize the cutting by the date it was received and by color. My daughter Sage helps with some of the easier sewing, producing lavender sachets and also ships the packages as they are ready and keeps the shop.

Over the year the average turn around time is 10 days but during peak seasons or for orders with more than one color it will be more like 14 days.
Shipping
USA: USPS priority post with confirmation number 2-3 days. Orders over $250.00 will be shipped with signature confirmation

CANADA: parcel post with confirmation and tracking 10-20 days

International: USPS parcel post with confirmation only (no tracking) 10-20 business days. Orders over about $250.00 will be shipped priority post (5-10 days) *with* tracking.

International customers please note that your package has to clear customs in your country which can create a delay in delivery and may be subject to duty charges that are your responsibility to pay.

I use the United States Postal Service to ship all of the packages, they are usually dropped off at the station the day after the label is printed because of limited hours at my local station. Orders within the USA will be shipped priority post and take 1-3 days to arrive. International orders are different.

International: There is tracking to Canada which takes 2-3 weeks but no tracking to any other country unless it is sent express. If an order does not include tracking you can expect to receive it in 2-3 weeks, occasionally if it doesn’t show up it will usually end up back with me after 3 months with an undeliverable address.

Every country has different policies on duties and vats, there is a chance you will have to pay up to 30% depending on your countries laws and what they decide to do at customs, please be prepared for this.

Thanks again! Much love and appreciation,
Amanda from Sandmaiden.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the made to order and intimate nature of the clothing in this shop I have strict and limited return policies however I understand that sometimes even when the right size is ordered the fit, color or textile can be other than expected, we have a new return policy as of March 2016 with a 20% restocking fee on made to order items that just don't work out to cover you if that happens.

Panties and sets with panties are final sale items, no exceptions.

Customized sizing, colors or lengths outside of what I offer in the listing are final sale items.

Made to order items excluding panties and sets with panties can be returned with a refund less the 20% restocking fee and the shipping charges.

Ready to ship items excluding panties or sets with panties can be fully refunded excluding shipping charges

Returns need to be posted back within one week of receipt in the original unworn and unlaundered condition with an RA#.

Please contact me through the etsy convo I send out with your order for an address and RA# to send returns to.

Refunds and Exchanges will take 2-4 weeks to process.
Additional policies and FAQs
SIZING:

Made to order in this shop means that I will take your measurements and slot them into one of my sizes or half sizes. Often I will be able to make top and bottom different sizes or accommodate different cup size to body size. "Made to Order" in this shop does not mean I make a new pattern with each order or promise to tailor to exact measurements. I try to design garments that will shift with your body and fit a variety of body types and sizes to fit my mail order business.

The length of the garments can be adjusted by your height but keep in mind that every body is different, a simple camisole is going to hit at two different places on two different people of the same height and different body types. The sleeves of robes are another example of something that will fit differently on someone of the same height but a different body type. Please be flexible about the length of your garment, I try to make them on the long side to be safe but it will never be the exact length it appears in the images.

Measurements that might be required are below, please note this is not the finished measurement of the garment, only body measurements.

Please note I will not use measurements that I don't ask for.

Height: for chemises, pants, robes etc

Bust: fullest part (not bra band size)

Under bust: directly under the bust

Waist: narrowest part

Low Hip: Fullest part about crotch level, very important!

Inseam: for pants have someone measure you from the crotch to the floor if you're very concerned about length. Denim size is often not a good measurement to go by.

For Bras and styles with cups: full bust and under bust without a bra on.

General size guide (very general):

XS= dress size 0/2, bust 33, waist 25, low hip 35,
S= dress size 4/6, bust 34, waist 27, low hip 37,
M= dress size 8/10, bust 37, waist 30, low hip 40,
L= dress size 12/14, bust 40, waist 33, low hip 43,
XL = dress size 16/18, bust 43, waist 36, low hip 46,
XXL = dress size 18/20 bust 46, waist 39, low hip 49

Not all the styles in this shop are available in all sizes

You may also include your garment size for cross referencing purposes.
