Welcome to Tecopia!
I make assorted felted items, such as tapestries, handbags, sculptures, etc. My handmade felt is created, using wet felting and/or needle felting techniques. I use imported wool yarns for my handbags. I use unspun fibers, such as wool, llama, alpaca and cashmere for sculptures and tapestries. I process much of the fibers myself and also dye a good portion of it. I also purchase quality dyed fibers from other sources.

Each item I make is unique and cannot be duplicated. I use no patterns or fillers in my creations. I may make an item similar to others, but they can never be exactly identical because of the medium used. Because of the nature of this craft, you are in fact getting a one of a kind item.

Please be aware that sculptures are not designed to be played with by children or pets. They are for display and collection only.

My goal is to create well made quality items. I want my customers to feel assured that when they purchase any item from my store, it has been carefully made to last a long time, under normal use. Customer satisfaction is very important to me. I want my customers to be happy with their purchases and shopping experience at Tecopia.

I abide by ALL Etsy terms and conditions. So please, read Etsy's Dos and Don'ts and Terms of Use policies.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I must me notified within 7 days of receiving item to qualify for a refund. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me. I will refund upon return of item. I cannot refund shipping charges.
There are no refunds for tutoring services.

I will exchange items of similar value, upon return of item, if desired.

If there is a problem with shipping and item is damaged, or does not show up, please contact me so I can track the problem. We will come up with a satisfactory solution.
I accept PayPal as payment. Credit cards are accepted through PayPal, so that gives you an additional option of payment. I expect to have the payment transaction completed within 3 days of purchase. The sooner I get payment, the sooner I will ship your item.

If you change your mind about your purchase, please contact me immediately, so I can cancel the transaction and relist the item.
Shipping rates are determined by the United States Postal Service. I try to keep shipping rates as reasonable as I can.

I prefer to ship USPS Priority, so I can track shipments and know if you have received you item, if you forget to tell me. Upon request, I will be happy to ship First Class or Parcel Post. On occasion, I will list an item as shipped by First Class. I do this in fairness to my customers and concern over shipping costs. Because of that particular item and it's size, weight and cost, it may be considerably less costly to ship First Class. If you decide that you want it faster, you may always opt to ship Priority. Please contact me it that is your wish or if you prefer a different carrier.

I ship as soon as possible after the transaction has completed. I usually ship the next day, or first business day following a weekend or holiday. Please contact me if you have not received your item within a reasonable amount of time. If shipped other than Priority, it will take longer, but I will give you an estimated time to the best of my ability.

YES!!! I am VERY happy to ship internationally! I will ship International First Class, and keep the costs down as much as I can. Please contact me for shipping charges to your country.
**I have recently become aware that in some countries there may additional import fees for your item. I cannot do anything about this, but if you are not aware of this, please check with your local Customs officials to find out. I do not want my customers having any unpleasant surprises.

I try to keep packing material to a minimum to keep the weight as low as possible. However, some is required to insure that your purchase will arrive in the same perfect condition that it was when it left.

I do not insure packages. I have had very good luck with all shipments to this point and do not feel the extra expense is necessary. However, if you decide that you want your item to be insured, I am happy to do so upon notification.
In the unlikely event that something happens, please contact me so we can come up with a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to do custom requests! So, if you want a particular item, I will be happy to make it for you. I can also give you a price prior to making the item.
I offer gift wrapping and a small card if you have a special need for that.

Sorry, I can't do wholesale orders.
