About VivaDelfina

Sales 1,532
On Etsy since 2015

inspired by nature

Nestled in Paradise Valley, a desert oasis northeast of Phoenix, is the vibrant studio where the mariposa magic of Viva Delfina happens. Featuring a collection of handmade accessories for women, the design aesthetic elicits the surreal, think Frida Kahlo meets Alexander McQueen at a cosmic fiesta...

Viva Delfina is the creation of owner and designer Randi Matalas, who for 6 years has grown her online Etsy store known for eccentric butterfly headpieces, catering to enthusiastic customers worldwide. She has collaborated with brands such as Free People and Sophia Webster, her designs have graced the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, have been seen on the pages of Vogue, and even made an appearance on the season finale of Orange is the New Black.

Viva Delfina is ultimately a celebration of life, a time to let your hair down and party, whether you're wearing your piece for a music festival or your special day.

Who is Delfina? She represents our highest self, the fully metamorphosed version we are all working towards becoming.

In the words of Frida Kahlo, "VIVA LA VIDA!"

*Please be aware that all items in my shop are Made to Order and can take up to 2 weeks to be shipped in busy seasons.*

I am based in the US, all items will be shipped via USPS FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL, this insures your parcel for up to $25, it is not a Tracked Service, it is Delivery Confirmation only. The estimated delivery from the US is approximately 14 days. If you are an international customer please wait one month from shipment before contacting me. Generally it takes 14 business days for a package to arrive, but in some cases it may take up to one month.

If your order is of a higher value, or you require it sooner I strongly suggest you purchase extra shipping so your package can be sent via Fed Ex - this service will fully insure your order and provide you a tracking number so you can follow your package's progress in the mail system. The estimated delivery time from the US to UK/AUS with this tracked service is between 5 and 7 days. You can do so by purchasing the FED EX service in the shipping options.

Please note these are estimated delivery times, every so often customs will retain a parcel, this is beyond our control and could delay your purchase arriving within the estimated time.

I cannot refund you the full amount for a lost package if the insurance level is inadequate. I am giving you the option to choose your own level of shipping. Please be patient and consider these options before you place an order.

I always post by USPS PRIORITY. This takes 2-3 days for arrival and does not include the 5 day Made to Order time. If you need your item within less than a week of the date you are placing your order there is a $25 rush order fee due to the nature of my items being Made to Order.

US EXPEDITED - I can also post out expedited delivery within the US, if your order is valuable or urgent please contact me and I can set up a custom delivery listing for you, the cost of this is $45 for OVERNIGHT DELIVERY via USPS and is insured and guaranteed next day delivery.

99.9% of my customers are really happy with their purchases (please read my reviews!) But every now and then a parcel may go missing or arrives late, please read the policies below before ordering, thank you!

I will ship your items out to the address you've provided on your order. It is your responsibility to ensure this is the correct address.

If a parcel or packet does not arrive, or is lost in the post please contact me as soon as possible so we can sort things out. Items shipped from the US to other countries can take up to 4 weeks to arrive, so please be patient.

I always obtain proof of postage, and can supply images of receipts if needed for a claim. I cannot refund if you do not contact me within 30 days of the item dispatched date, in this case I will provide you with a copy of the proof of postage so you can make a claim.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are most welcome, please message me with any requests.

If you request a custom order I will message you images and information to ensure your item is bespoke and to your requirements. Please note that colors may vary on different computer screens.

My items are all handmade from natural fiber feathers. Due to the natural aspect of the feathers, there may be small imperfections in plumage. The finish or size may vary ever so slightly to the images in my shop, this is the beauty of buying a handmade item.

Custom orders are created especially to your requirements and are non-refundable.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All headpieces are made from natural fiber feathers. The feathers can be wiped cleaned using a soft, dry cloth or a natural-bristled artist's brush. Make sure to follow the natural direction of the plumage to softly brush away dust. Never brush against the natural grain or growth of a feather and take care not to break the quill with too much pressure.

Store your headpiece away from dust, moisture and bright light. While feathers may seem to be waterproof, it is only the secretions from certain glands on live birds that keep the feathers coated with oils. If this oil is removed by washing, dust collection, etc., they begin to lose their suppleness and deteriorate. Feathers survive the longest in temperatures of 60
