Inkahra Vintage - Advancing the sustainable fashion agenda one frock at a time

Thank you for stopping by! I have always adored fashion, and I have a particular love of collecting quality vintage dresses, especially those that are quirky, rare, or just beautiful!

My mission is to rediscover, revive and rehome vintages dresses that have amazing histories and need to be loved – so they can start a new chapter.

I have been collecting and selling for more than 20 years and have decided to switch sales to Etsy so I can share my vintage passion with you.

And finally, a word about my ‘No Fur’ policy. Having worked with and advised ethical beauty and fashion businesses, I feel passionate about not being involved with the cruel fur industry, and that includes not selling old furs. I am delighted that Inkahra Vintage is the first vintage brand to be approved by the International Fur Free Retailer Program, the only program that recognizes retailers who put their fur free commitment in writing.

In addition, although Inkahra Vintage isn’t a vegan-only boutique, I also decided not to sell feathers and leather. Wool and silk will often be found in vintage clothes, but cannot always be identified because labels are often missing. If you want to avoid wool or silk, where there is a label that indicates the fabric composition, I do include the details in the listing. If the label isn’t present the fabric description will be based on my best guess and experience, but that does mean that I can't guarantee it will be free from wool or silk.

I hope you’ll join me on this vintage fashion adventure and please consider rehoming a vintage treasure!

VINTAGE CONDITION
All items are sold as vintage. I make every effort to accurately describe the age or the date range by using research as well as my own expertise, but I cannot guarantee the exact age of an item unless I have the provenance from the previous owners.

Please be sure to read the description thoroughly and to view all the photos. I make every attempt to list any flaws within the item description, such as any prominent stains, discoloration, missing buttons or embellishments. Ask as many questions as you would like to before purchasing! If you prefer a ‘new-off-the-hanger’ look, then vintage might not be for you, although many of my items appear unworn.

Vintage dresses are usually pre-worn so I cannot make a promise on longevity of use and cannot be held responsible for the effects of how you wear or treat the item once it leaves me. This includes but is not limited to the construction, fabrics used, dyes, fastenings and embellishments. Please do take extra care when putting on, wearing and taking off the item as it is vintage and may already have been subject to wear! I do not pay for repairs, laundering or alterations once you have received the dress.

CLEANING VINTAGE GARMENTS
Most items are washed in gentle fabric detergent and eco softener or steamed as appropriate before shipping. When appropriate garments are dry-cleaned and I use a cleaners who works to my high standards. Occasionally a garment will not be cleaned (it might be a collector’s piece for example, or a delicate garment) but this will be mentioned in the listing for you.

Just like buying new clothes from a high street shop, before wearing you may wish to launder the garment again yourself on receipt, either by hand or using a dry cleaner in case you have allergies or just for preference as most items are re-stored after cleaning. Many items can be handwashed, but if in doubt as to the best way to care for your dress, please consult an experienced dry cleaner.

SIZING
Please check measurements carefully to allow ease so it will comfortably fit you without straining any seams, fittings etc. Measuring a garment of your own that fits you well may help you decide if the dress will fit. Garments are sometimes pinned on the mannequin to show best fit.

‘NO FUR POLICY’
Inkahra does not knowingly sell any products made from fur and is the first specialist vintage brand to be certified by The International Fur Free Retailer Program.

Where possible I include fabric composition in the product description. Many vintage items do not have labels, so descriptions are based on my knowledge & some times a best guess. I can’t guarantee that items will be silk or wool free unless a label is present and the fabric composition is noted in full.
