Let us all hope that USPS will meet their end of the bargain for your packages to arrive on time. However, all customers need to know that the USPS has major shipment delays this year due to the pandemic. Please know this before making your purchases. Please do not penalize us in your product review based on shipping. We can not control how quickly your shipment arrives once we ship it out. Please also refrain from contacting us with the expectation that we should know when your package will arrive, as we can’t control USPS or other global shipping companies. We do our best to ship out your package by the deadline we say it will be shipped, but that doesn’t mean it will arrive by the date USPS claims it will. So please have respect and patience; we are human just like you ❤️, and if you read our reviews, most everyone receives their order promptly.

For international orders, customers need to understand that we can’t control the speed of global shipping companies. Due to pandemic shutdowns, some shipments may be delayed. Please be aware that this is out of our control. If you want to pay for expedited shipping, those upgrades are available, but shipments can still be delayed due to the pandemic.

ALL countries have been handling pandemic shutdowns differently, and we have no control over shipment companies, including the USPS. Also, some packages may get held at customs, so you must pick them up. We will deduct the shipping cost if it's shipped back to us.

To see if we ship Internationally to your country, message us.

We do NOT offer refunds, exchanges, or cancellations of orders. That includes late or lost shipments caused by USPS and additional global shipping companies. If your package says in transit, that means it’s in transit, but please know that sometimes packages have been saying pre-transit, and they’re actually IN transit. Again USPS has been unreliable in this way.

All blankets ship in the United States via USPS Priority Mail with Tracking. There is an upgrade for you to pay for express shipping via USPS for both domestic and international shipments, but again this won’t guarantee that USPS will meet their end of the bargain and make deadlines.

If you purchase from our shop, you automatically receive a coupon code for future purchases. We hope you will give us feedback and help us continue this artisanal craft for generations. Our friends and community rely on your support.

We travel between South America and Colorado often! Your purchase may ship from either location, depending on where we’re adventuring!

Please read our store policy in detail. Because we often ship from Ecuador, we can NOT accept refunds due to many factors such as customs fees, transportation issues, etc. We have a strict NO Refund Policy. No exceptions.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, some shipments may have delays once they leave us. Even priority mail and express mail may be delayed. Please know that this is out of our control.

Video summary: We live in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador where we work directly with Indigenous Artisan Craftswomen and Craftsmen to provide you with quality goods.

Alpaca Wool Blankets and Incredible Hand Crafted Artisan Goods

In 2016 we took a trip to South America. Our first adventure in years. We needed to free ourselves from life's everyday grind and hustle of running our small entertainment company for kids. We both have roots in South America.

From the moment we landed in the Andes Mountains, we instantly fell in love. On day two of our trip, we began planning our move to the Andes. We returned to Portland, Oregon, and began working to return to the Andes Mountains.

One year later, with the help of friends, we made that trip back, and we have been living in a beautiful city 8500 feet up amongst the clouds. We spend our days creating ever-lasting relationships with the local artisans and immersing ourselves in the culture.

We discovered the alpaca wool blankets when we took our first trip here. We loved the blankets so much that we brought them home as gifts for our family and friends.

Every time we returned home for a visit, everyone we knew, who cuddled up in our cozy alpaca wool blankets, asked for us to bring them a blanket on our next trip.

With so many requests, we decided what better way to share the gift of these beautiful handcrafted items of the people we have gotten to know and love than by making them available to our friends and everyone.

We hand select each item here in South America, where we still reside to this day. We choose the most incredible designs of local artisans.

When you purchase with us, you become a part of the fabric of this beautiful continent and its genuinely beautiful people. Our artisan community can support their families and continue to pass on their craft for generations to come.
What is the meaning behind the name Violet & Alchemy?

Alchemy is Magic. Alchemy is the magical process of transformation, creation, or combination. In medieval times Alchemists were chemists that sought to transform metals like lead into gold. For us, Alchemy stands for the ability to use your magic to change your life and existence. You have the power to take what is the "lead" in your life and create and transform it into "gold." We feel our Indigenous community does just that with what they make. Though life is often not easy for many, life is still magical.

Violet is a color that, throughout time, has been associated with Majesty and Royalty. In Chinese Painting, Violet represents the Harmony of the Universe. In Hinduism and Buddhism, Violet is related to the Crown Chakra. The color Violet resonates with us on many levels. To us, Violet represents your individualistic, majestic, royal self.

So here you go, Queens & Kings. Goddesses & Gods. We created Violet & Alchemy for you through a process of magic and transformation within our own lives, and all our goods have a touch of magic just for you.

We hope you enjoy shopping here at Violet & Alchemy. If you have any questions feel free to message us here or email us at sales [!at] violetandalchemy.com
