Yardia

Hi, I'm Brigida. I create Pacific Northwest-inspired cards and gifts for nature lovers. Yardia products help you to love the place you live.

Through Yardia, I create watercolor illustrations inspired by my experiences in nature, and translated to stationery, gifts and home decor. Community and connection can each start with a simple card, carefully selected artwork or lovingly wrapped gift, reaching out from one person to another and seeing the good and wonder in each other.

Coming from a multiracial and indigenous CHamoru perspective, creating art about nature and loving the place I live is more than business alone. It connects to the sacredness of the land that my ancestors protected and continue to fight for. Yardia's values are based in the spirit of inafa'maolek--to make good and strive for harmony. And I hope to share that spirit with you through my art.

I'm proud to have built Yardia into the full time, woman-of-color owned business it is today, and that I can support myself through my art. Every decision I make for my business is crafted with intention and love for the work and for folks like you.

You can also find Yardia products in over 100 stores in the US and Canada. Want to become a wholesale customer? Visit https://yardia.co/wholesale to receive access to the Yardia wholesale catalog, or find me at https://yardia.faire.com.

Yardia's Core Values:
Yardia is driven by five core values: nature, creativity, empathy, community and harmony. I believe that:
1. Nature is sacred, beautiful and filled with awe.
2. Creativity is magic, made by heart and hand.
3. There's empathy to be found through connection.
4. Community is built locally, one person at a time.
5. We live in harmony when we're in touch with the world around us.

Operating Hours

Hours are typically Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM Pacific Time, excluding holidays. Please note that Yardia is a one-woman business, so I appreciate your flexibility and patience when awaiting a response to your message!

When will my order ship?

Orders ship from Seattle within 1-3 business days (excluding postal holidays), usually on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Free economy shipping for cards is in an envelope with a stamp. Please upgrade to first class package if you want a tracking number for greeting card orders.

Once your order ships, please note that shipping times are unpredictable during the current pandemic and due to recent postal service changes. Shipping times cannot be guaranteed. I recommend ordering AT LEAST three weeks prior to the date the item is needed (for example Christmas or birthdays). I (and the mail carriers doing the hard work of delivery) appreciate your patience!

The tracking says my package has been delivered, but I haven't received it. What should I do?

Most often, your package has either been misdelivered to a nearby address, or picked up by another household member. You'll want to start by filling out this USPS form at https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm so that your local postal carrier can check if they delivered it to the wrong address, and then redeliver. In the rare case your package has been stolen or is otherwise missing within the postal system, you can then file a claim with USPS.

What are Yardia's 2020 US Christmas order deadlines?

Due to COVID-19 and recent postal service changes, shipping delivery times cannot be guaranteed to arrive by Christmas. Right now, I'm anticipating that my order deadline to give you the best shot of receiving your package by December 25th will be ordering by December 3rd (this date is subject to change, but most likely won't be any later). I'd recommend expecting AT LEAST 3 weeks of shipping time this year once the order has shipped from Seattle.

In general, due to COVID-19 increased shipping volume and delays across the country, I recommend placing orders at least three weeks prior to any holiday or event like a birthday in order to have the best bet of receiving the shipment on time.
