Processing

How long does it take before you ship?

Updated 28th April 2020: Yes yes covid again. I will not be able to leave the house as often. Depending on the last postage, it may be up to 2 weeks before I can leave for the post office. Thank you for your patience.

I typically take a week to prepare and pack. After it is posted, shipping details and registered tracking number will be sent to the email address you use on your Paypal.

How will my item be packed?

Each Pocket doll will be protected by a pocket or what I like to call ‘sleeping bag’ made from upcycled fabric. It is then wrapped in paper and shipped in an outer repurposed plastic envelop.

Packaging for other items varies. They will be protected from harm in the way best suits the individual. In doubt, ask me.

Materials

What are your art made of?

Works from mid 2019, sculpted or stuffed, are made from from 100% reclaimed textile.

Works created prior were stitched from reclaimed textile, stuffed partially with reclaimed polyester filling.

All threads are new.

The making of my art pieces produces zero-waste with respect to textile. Odds and ends from the making of one soft sculpture is collected and repurposed in different fabric sculptures.

They are packed as minimally as is required for the protection of the particular piece, to reduce packaging as well as carbon footprint.
