My local post office is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. If I receive an order before noon on one of those days, I will most likely post that afternoon; if not, it will be the next day possible.
UK postage is sent 2nd class 'to be signed for' delivery.
Overseas shipping is sent with Airsure tracking; I'm sorry about the cost - it is what it is. Parcels to the USA take approx 7-10 working days, but can be 3 weeks to some parts of the world.
There should be no customs costs as I mark packages as 'Gift'.
Policies relating to items by Oshun Creations
I never send out anything that I wouldn't be happy to receive and I really hope you will be completely delighted with your Oshun Creation. Please note that whilst I do my best to select fabrics that are as good as new, occasionally you may spot signs that it has previously been loved - slight fading for example. I will never use any fabric that spoils the look of the garment, however I may use slightly flawed fabric for lining where it won't show.
All seams are serged/overlocked where appropriate. I sometimes leave edges raw, which means with wear and washing, they may fray slightly. I do this deliberately because I like the effect it makes and believe it adds to the ethereal quality. If I think this will be severe, I run a line of stitching near the edge to prevent the garment fraying away!
I welcome custom, made-to-measure orders; please message me to discuss. I can usually complete an order within 3 weeks if I have the fabric already. If not, I will let you know immediately to avoid disappointment.
Care advice. Hand washing will no doubt help all garments last longer, however our lives are usually busy ones, and as long as the fabric allows, everything I make should be up to machine washing on a delicate cycle at 30 degrees C. If your machine doesn't have those options, please hand wash to be on the safe side. If there are any special instructions that differ from this, I will mention so in the listing description eg. I'm afraid silk items will have to be hand washed.
Special notes about the Indian Summer Collection - please read.
This collection is made from upcycling and recycling traditional handmade Indian clothing, mainly in silk, but also chiffon and cotton. I hand-washed all of it first and discovered that some of the items were not colour-fast, so please bear that in mind. These items aren’t machine washable - only hand wash or dry clean. It’s worth it - the fabrics and detailing are just gorgeous.
