About

One of a kind accessories and homewares made from vintage fabrics.

In between my costuming work for theatre and film, as well as looking after my two kids, I have always been self employed.

I love vintage textiles and color and have been using my collection of antique kimonos and found pieces of vintage Japanese silk as well as vintage barkcloth to create one of a kind pieces.

Currently my collection consists of scarves and obi belts and I am slowing adding homewares to that range in the form of cushions/pillows.

I was lucky enough to have a truly incredible experience working in the costume dept of the Hobbit, (currently one of the biggest movies being made of all time).


Thanks to Mr Peter Jackson I got to go on location with the project and travel all over New Zealand (often in a helicopter) and see some stunning scenery that will showcase our beautiful country when the movie is released. I also collected a stash of vintage fabrics to add to my growing collection!


My work has been purchased and worn by some of the actors (and their partners) involved in the Hobbit movies and I am honoured that Sir Ian Mckellen, (Gandalf) chooses to wear a couple of my scarves on regular occasions!


All of my work is one of a kind and features upcycled or re purposed textiles, I prefer to work with natural fabrics and materials and minimise waste where possible.


I welcome custom orders.

Hi, and thanks you for browsing and shopping, all items are hand crafted by me in my garden studio in the backyard of my smoke free home.

Each item is a LIMITED EDITION and I use vintage textiles, such as kimono silk, silk obi and vintage barkcloth and and vintage trim where possible.

I craft from my garden studio, in between my freelance costume design work.

Payment
PAYMENT:

I Prefer PAYPAL!

All Items listed are in US dollars, but once you order this will be converted into NZ dollars.

Please check your order and shipping details before purchasing.
Please make sure the address you supply is the correct one and matches the Paypal address, as this is the address I will ship to.

I do not have to refund you if you change your mind, please note it costs me time and money to re-list items when a customer has simply changed their mind about purchasing.

I retain the right to cancel the sale if payment has not been received and cleared within 3 days.

If no communication has been received regarding the sale then I will re-list the item. Please do not ask me to hold an item for any longer than a week.

Once payment is cleared in my account I will ship the item.

I also retain the right to refuse a sale to any countries with unstable and corrupt governments (eg: Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, etc), as there is a risk that sent items may not reach the purchaser.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my collection of work, store policies or ordering and payment details.
Shipping
SHIPPING/POSTAGE/GIFTWRAP

I use New Zealand Post, international airmail (Fastpost) for shipping.

Items usually only take between 6-10 working days to arrive, please note this does not include weekends or public holidays, (NZ is far away!) it takes less time for items to ship to Australia and within New Zealand.

I package all items to arrive swiftly and safely.

If you would like your item/s to arrive faster than the usual 6-10 days delivery OR if you would like your items insured and tracked, please see below:

NZ post offers and 'Express Courier' option, this option will get your items to you in 3 working days and your package will be tracked, please note, this service is very expensive (eg $45 nzd to ship one scarf).

Please message me BEFFORE ordering, if you require the express shipping/tracked option.

All items are wrapped in tissue paper suitable for gift giving, please let me know if you would like a gift card with message attached.

Where possible I like to use clean, recycled packaging and try to do my bit to help the environment. I love to combine shipping costs on multiple purchases to save on postage, just let me know.

LOST ITEMS

I can no longer be responsible for items that go missing once I have shipped them.

Items sent by Fastpost are unable to be tracked so therefore I cannot follow up and trace them.

If you have paid extra for the international courier/tracked service, please contact me regarding your missing item and I will do my best to track it.

Please be aware, once I have shipped your item I am no longer responsible for it, if you have an issue with your postal service, please contact them directly.

CUSTOMS DUTIES/TAXES

I cannot be responsible for any international taxes or customs duties, this is the sole responsibility of the purchaser, please do not ask me to label your package as a 'gift'.

I will email you once the item has been sent, please let me know when you have received your item, I love to receive positive feedback!

If you have any questions at all regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact me before ordering.

Thank you.
Refunds and Exchanges
QUALITY CONTROL

I take pride in my work and want it to be of the highest quality, I genuinely want my customers to be happy.

Please note: I often use vintage textiles in my work and while I try to use the best pieces in each fabric, some small rust marks or pin holes sometimes appear, I believe this adds to the vintage charm of each piece.

I do my best to accurately photograph and describe each piece that I list, please read, look and choose carefully!

If you are not 100% completely satisfied with your purchase:

Please convo or email me directly if you have any concerns or questions, BEFORE leaving feedback!

I will always try to work something out if my customer is unhappy or feels an item has been misrepresented.

I am a nice person! and would love to hear from you and I pride myself on having (so far), 100% positive feedback.

RETURNS/REFUNDS

I will refund for damaged items or items incorrectly listed. If there is a fault with your item, I will repair or replace for free (and refund shipping costs).

If you are returning an item to be replaced or repaired, please do so within 4 days of receiving (unworn and in original condition).

I am not in a position to refund you if you have changed your mind about an item, refunding money through Paypal and relisting the item with Etsy costs me in time and money.

I am only one person running a very small home based business, so PLEASE read all of my store policies carefully and convo me if you have any questions whatsoever before ordering and purchasing.

Once your order and payment is complete your item will be sent.

THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!
