Delivery Information

When will my order arrive?

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-3 working days from the order being placed. If for some reason the order is delayed or taking longer than expected we will be in touch and keep you up to date. All orders are shipped via Royal Mail and tracking numbers are only provided for fast track orders.

International orders can take 4-15 working days to arrive and we do not track packages fully unless you have selected ‘International Tracked’ at checkout, we would recommend this option, as unrecorded items cannot be accounted for if they are lost in the post and we would be unable to compensate you.

We pride ourselves on being 100% original – we make all of our designs in house using classical paper pattern manipulation. As we manufacture solely in the UK in small numbers, periodically items sell out and it may take a bit longer to get your order to you. If this should occur we will contact you immediately.
