FAQs: Lead & Despatch Times

What are your lead & despatch times?

 

Custom Orders - Bespoke orders are created on a custom made basis. Lead times are dependent on your order and the availability of materials to be sourced for your project. Please check your quotation for estimated lead times for your order and contact us if you have any questions. On completion and the final payment of your bespoke order, your product will be available for collection or despatched within 3 - 5 working days.

Products Made-to-Order -  Products made-to-order will generally be despatched 2 -3 weeks from receipt of payment. Please check the product description for more accurate lead times. If you require your order sooner, we ask that you contact us immediately after placing your order or leave a note to this effect at checkout.

Products In Stock -  Available products will be despatched in 3 - 5 working days from receipt of payment. If you require your order sooner, please contact us immediately after placing your order or leave a note to this effect at checkout.

 
 

How will my order be packaged?

 

Your order will be beautifully packaged, with the utmost care for you and the environment.

On the outside -

  • Recyclable kraft mailing boxes, sustainably sourced, made with recycled materials, and FSC certified.

  • Compostable shipping labels.

  • Gummed water-activated paper tape with a botanical design in natural kraft (produced with FSC-certified paper, using soy-based ink and vegetable adhesive made from potato starch). This paper tape is compostable, recyclable, and a more sustainable option than petroleum-based plastic (PP/PVC) tape. 

 

On the inside -

  • Compostable zero-waste inner bags protect your order during shipping.

  • A hemp cord is used to attach our hang tags/care labels to your order. Hemp is a highly sustainable, low-impact crop.

  • Each label is backed with a layer of 100% flax linen, a sustainable material that uses considerably fewer resources than cotton or polyester (such as water, energy, pesticides, insecticides, and fertilisers).

  • Product care labels are made from recycled satin.
