Please note that the colours of the items in real life may vary slightly from as seen in pictures. This is due to various conditions including (but not limited to) lighting, device screen settings etc. If you have any questions about any particular item (including colour, size, fit, fabric) please get in touch with us and we will be happy to help you. Items once sold cannot be returned and/or exchanged unless there is a shipping error or in an unlikely event that you have received a defective piece. (For more details, please read our returns and refunds policy)
All items displayed on our website are made using one or more traditional techniques used in making cloth and/or dyeing cloth and/or making a finished product.

These variations are part of the beauty of handmade and handcrafted items.

Delivery time: We are a small and sustainable business and we want to adopt practices that are good for our planet. We want to actively participate in preventing wastage of resources throughout the value chain of every garment and accessory listed on our website. So we keep only a few popular pieces in stock and everything else is made only on order. This means that for some items you will have to wait for a few days, but by doing that you have played a small part in helping prevent wastage of precious raw material and resources.
Items that are in stock and available as “Ready to Ship” are marked so on the product description page. These items will be shipped within 3 business days after payment confirmation. You will receive an email update from us after your item has been shipped. Depending on the delivery address, items may take anywhere between 1-3 weeks to arrive.
For items marked “Made to order” the following process applies. Only after payment confirmation, your order is considered confirmed. You will get an order confirmation email from us. After that we inform our partners and start processing your order. This takes up to 14 business days. We will inform you once the item is ready for dispatch. Once the item has been shipped it takes approximately 14 business days for it to arrive at the delivery address. We will also inform you when the item has been quality checked in Japan and shipped to you.
You can get in touch with us and let us know if you want more frequent updates. By adopting a “made to order” approach we can reduce garment waste together by preventing making extra items. By supporting this effort you support a cleaner planet. We agree that waiting for an item you love is hard, but we promise it will be worth the wait.
*We try our best to keep our limited inventory updated. If however something goes out of stock at the time of your purchase we will get in touch with you as soon as possible and inform you about steps for refund. If such an item is likely to be restocked soon we will inform you accordingly and process your order in case you are willing to wait for the particular item, or process a refund if you would prefer not to wait.
