We take pictures and dimensions of the actual products in stock. However, note that the colors in pictures are dependent on lighting conditions, and other aspects. For example, some fabrics may reflect light, and hence appear brighter/vary-in-shade in pictures. Also, the colors you see depend on your computer/device monitor. Every tie-dye product can get a little unique due to the very nature of the tie-dye process - and may sometimes as well vary a little from what you see in pictures. Same for patchwork apparel - patches cannot be exactly same on each piece.
We also take actual dimensions of a sample of the lot; in a rare case there may be a variation of up to 1-2 inches for the fact that each piece is individually cut and stitched, and not mass produced by machines. Please bear with these variations.
Material/Fabric - Much like online purchase from anywhere else, its difficult to understand the fabric or material of construction until one can actually see, touch and feel it. We try our best to describe it. However there is just staggering type of fabric available, and it even changes from a style to another style, batch to batch, etc. No words can really describe what it is, especially coming from cottage/small industry where production volumes are very low, and type of fabric used depends on season, cotton cost, availability, etc.
The sequin work on cotton tie-dye skirts is a temporary embellishment. Its a cottage industry art, and is done by hands. The sequins are hand sewn in rather loosely, and you can expect to wear the skirt with sequins a couple of times, and then they would tend to fall; at which point, its a good idea to take out the sequins and wear the skirt as a simple tie-dye style.
On some other styles like when they are on on silk or rayon, the sequin work is a bit more well done, and will last longer. In some cases you will notice very even machine stitch on rayon, where they will last longer.
Caution: The sequins can be a little abrasive in some cases, and care should be exercised in wearing or handling them.
Once in a few months, or during a campaign, we email discount coupons/promotional codes to our customers/patrons. Sometimes they are available on internet forums, etc. Most of the codes have an expiration date. You could also sign up on the site to be included in weekly promotion coupon draws.
We completely understand the buyer expectation with combined shipping and would be more than willing to pass on any shipping savings. We have this calculation that automatically determines combined shipping on check-out:
We take the shipping methods that are valid for all items in the cart. Take the calculated shipping of item with highest shipping, and add to that a percentage (50-90%) of the calculated shipping for all other items. In any case, combined shipping will always be less than sum of shipping for all items in the cart. If you have any questions or concerns on combined shipping of if special shipping requirements are required please feel free to send us an email.
Please select the International Shipping Option on the Checkout page. We apologize but we are unable to provide Free Shipping to our International customers. However, we will send you a discount code for 10% off your order (not including shipping) that you can use for your next order.
