Note from shop owner Thank you for your message! As the demand for masks has been much higher than anticipated, I have temporarily put my shop on vacation mode so I can focus on my current customers orders. While I am not accepting new orders, all current mask orders are well along the way in the production process.

If you are inquiring about the status of your order please know your order is currently already in production and will ship as soon as possible. I am the artist and designer behind your mask and have partnered with my print manufacturer to hand make each mask. As soon as an order is placed they begin hand making your mask. As soon as your mask ships your order status will update within Etsy. Unfortunately, due to covid-19 my print partner is experiencing significant delays in the supply line and shipping timeframes that are out of all of our control. I am in constant contact with my printer although responses are a bit delayed due to demand. Please know I also want your order to ship as soon as possible. We’re working with our 3rd party partners at the production facility and shipping all masks priority to minimize these as much as we can, but we’re also trying to be understanding of the fact that some people simply can’t go to work right now, USPS is experiencing unprecedented backlogs with drivers frequently tested for a fever and if they have one they and all of their packages are quarantined….and this is all during a time in which demand is at an all time high for these products. Please keep in mind delays due to USPS are out of our control. I genuinely apologize for any delays, and want you to know we’re doing our best to get your order out as quickly as possible. As of today, we expect orders to take around 30-35 (although most are shipping sooner) business days to create from the date of purchase, and I will update this constantly within each listing if/when that expectation changes. If your current order status says your mask is delayed, please know this is why and we are doing everything we can to make your mask(s) as quickly as possible and hopefully sooner than the 30-35 business day estimation.

We truly appreciate your patience and kindness. We are a team coming together day and night to bring you unique handmade masks created right here in America that will hopefully bring you a little more joy! While these are difficult times, we’re consistently uplifted by the graciousness and understanding of our amazing customers.

Lastly.....if you would be so kind to wait to leave a review (if you choose to do so) until you have actually received your mask I would really appreciate it :) I have had a few customers leaving not so nice reviews even though they haven't received their masks yet simply due to delays within USPS (which are of course out of my control) I would really appreciate it <3

About ShopMyALaMode

Sales 1,968
On Etsy since 2013

I paint fun and colorful maps, faces, plants and other doodles then turn them into stylish accessories for you and your home!

I am an artist and textile designer with a love for vibrant and bold colors. I take inspiration from travel, nature, other artists and cultures, and swirl it all together to create a unique piece of art.

Since I was a child I always loved to create with my hands. Whether it be painting, sewing or building a piece of furniture..... if I could dream it, I would try create it. My A La Mode was first a dream around the age of 12. My imagination would run wild with dreams of having my own clothing line made with beautiful hand painted textiles. I was always drawn to the idea of creating my own unique surface designs with paint and dye instead of working with pre-printed fabrics. So after attending university for fashion design, I set out to pursue my dream of creating functional, wearable art; and thus My A La Mode was born!

My A La Mode has evolved over the years as my visions have changed, but one constant has, and always will remain.....you can never have too much color!!!

A HUGE thanks to Etsy for featuring My A La Mode on the front page!!! Check out my story here:

*FACE MASKS- PLEASE READ*

-FULFILLMENT- All masks are hand printed and hand sewn within 25-30 business days (not weekends) or sooner from the date of order. It is not possible to rush any one specific order, so please do not ask because every message I receive only slows down the mask production for everyone.

-SHIPPING- It is the responsibility of the customer to enter the correct mailing address at checkout! I am not held responsible or liable for orders that are not delivered due to an error on the customers part. I am incredibly busy making masks, not double checking and inquiring about correct addresses. If your mask is returned to us, it will be the responsibility of the customer to repay for shipping costs. NO REFUNDS for this. All masks ship priority mail which under normal circumstances take 1-4 business days. Due to Covid-19, however, there could be delays which are of course out of my control.

-CANCELLATIONS- You can cancel your mask order within the first hour after placing it. I submit all orders to my print facility ASAP to get the process started. Each mask is made to order and is hand printed, cut and sewn so once we start the process of making your mask we cannot cancel it. No exceptions.

-REFUNDS- If your mask is made incorrectly, i.e. wrong pattern we will work as quickly as possible to remake it, but we do not offer refunds...only remakes. Our Masks are ONE SIZE FITS MOST. If you generally tend to air on the larger or smaller side there is a chance your mask may not fit as well, so please order with this understanding.

In general please know I am only human and am doing my absolute best to provide as many masks as possible while also dealing with the repercussions of a pandemic. Please consider kindness and patience as we are all in this together <3

Care instructions

Some of my designs are hand painted and some are printed versions of an original work of art. Each listing explains this, but just in case...

My hand painted designs include my passport covers, wallets, envelope clutches and envelope purses. These items should be spot cleaned with a cloth and mild soap and water. Do not machine wash!

My printed designs include pillows, tea towels, totes, pouches and shower curtains. Each listing for my printed designs has specific care instructions, but for the most part they're machine washable. However please refer to the listing.

Will my design fade or smear?

Although some of my designs are painted and some are printed, the answer is the same. No :) Your design will not fade or smear. I do recommend keeping any of the hand painted products as dry as possible, but if they were to get a little wet on accident from rain or any other reason, the design will not come off or get on you. The design is there to stay!

Which items are painted v/s printed

Hand painted items include...
Passport covers, women's wallets, envelope clutches and crossbody purses

Printed items include...
Pouches, totes, shower curtains, pillows and tea towels

Can you paint a quote or monogram somewhere on my item

No. I do not paint quotes, monograms, letters, symbols, people, animals, sail boats etc. I have a very abstract style and specific detailed drawing and monograms are not my style of art :) Nothing wrong with these, just not my style and you'll be much happier receiving one of my designs that has not been manipulated or "changed" in this way.
