About

Photography and Fabrics

Hello and welcome to AH Photo Design...otherwise known as Aimee Hocking London. I'm the owner, maker, creator and the brands namesake! After graduating with a Photography degree from the Norwich University of the Arts a few years ago, I found myself stuck in a retail job, on and off, for almost 3 years. This made me realise I needed to do something creative again. So I decided to experiment with printing my photographs onto fabric. With a keen interest in British made products, I focussed only on UK printers, which I still use today. With a brief sewing lesson from my mum on my great grandmothers Singer hand sewing machine, I made my first envelope cushion cover...the rest is history from here! With an enthusiasm for all things natural and eco friendly, I began searching for alternative cushion stuffings to the standard man made polyester and down. I soon discovered WoolSoft, a small business of cushion inserts handmade in the UK using British wool fleece stuffing. All my cushions are now sold complete with WoolSoft inserts. I opened my Etsy shop in February of 2015 with just 3 cushion covers, you can now shop from a range of cushions, bags and accessories! Having become completely self employed in August of 2016, it is continuing to grow!

All my products are hand measured, cut, assembled and sewn by myself in my home in West London. All my custom fabrics are designed by myself using my photography and printed by several small printers throughout the UK. My other fabrics are sourced from haberdashers around the UK, with the majority being designed in England.

Additional policies and FAQs
Caring for your product...

The majority of my products are easily machine washable and all products now come with a branded care label sewn inside. Generally it is advised you wash at maximum 30 degrees on a gentle wash with mild detergents only. This will prolong the life of your handmade items and keep them at their best.

My bespoke textiles range used to be dry clean only, however I have recently changed the company I get my designs printed with. The new company still print using low energy, low water digital techniques, however they finish all fabrics with a post print heat treatment. This means they designs are much more resilient and less prone to fading in the wash! Please follow the instructions printed on the inner care label or on the Etsy listing description.

Please note that WoolSoft, 100% British wool stuffed cushion inserts, are dry clean only.

Commissions....

I love receiving commissions and the majority of my items can be custom made to your requirements...so please do get in touch with your ideas! Please contact me through my shop, email: aimeehockingphoto [!at] gmail.com or through social media accounts twitter: @aimee_photo, Facebook.com/aimeedesigns, Instagram: @aimee.hocking.london to discuss the details!
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

1. Personal information I collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of cushions, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

5. Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6. Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
