FAQ's / T&C's / Privacy
Do you do samples?
As we have low minimum order quantities we do not do samples. We do have sinamay shade cards available here
Can I come to visit you?
Our warehouse is not open to the public.
Can I edit or add to my existing order?
Although we do try to accommodate add-ins where we can this is not always possible. Adding into your order will also delay dispatch, so it's best thoroughly finalise your order before checking out.
How long will it take to get my order?
Orders are posted out weekdays from Canterbury, England and typically take:
Within the UK: 1-2 working days (by 1st Class Post)
Outside the UK: 5-15 working days (by Standard Untracked Airmail)
Up to date information and guidance on delivery can be seen on our Delivery & Returns page.
Can I return any unused items for a refund?
Yes! Items can be returned within 14 days from date of delivery. For more information on returns visit our Delivery & Returns page.
Do you do teach millinery classes?
Occasionally we take part in one-off events - see what's on here.
I have never made hats before, can you help?
Are your products colourfast?
The majority of our products are not designed to be submerged in water and are not colourfast. Need a colourfast product? Get in touch and we would be happy to advise you.
