My t-shirt arrived but my caftan hasn't.
Can I Customize my Caftan?
Unfortunately, I am UNABLE to accommodate any customizations to caftans, this includes alterations to length. I do offer some pieces in a cocktail length (45") or a full length (55"), if pieces are not listed with that option it is unavailable due to the nature of the pattern or material being used. Thank you for your understanding.
Is the caftan cinched in the back?
No, there are elastic ties inside the garment on the front to give a cinched effect if you’d like, but the back is free flowing.
Return and Refund Policies:
All orders are final. There are no exchanges or refunds issued once an order has been placed.
Refunds are not issued for orders that were unable to be delivered due to insufficient or incomplete shipping addresses provided under your order.
Everything is made to order. As soon as you order, we will custom make your piece, then pack it up to ship out to you. Please allow 4-6 weeks to ship. Order fulfillments do not include shipping transit time. Shipping transit times vary depending on your shipping address.
Once the carrier scans it into their system you will receive a shipment confirmation email to the email address provided under your order. Please check your “junk” mailbox as sometimes confirmation emails may end up there. All shipment confirmation emails contain tracking numbers provided by the relevant carrier.
Expedited Shipping Means ONLY the SHIPPING is Expedited not the Production.
If you need a piece for an event, I do offer a Rush Service on certain caftans with a lead time of 1-2 weeks. The fee only covers the rush service and not the cost of the caftan which will need to be purchased separately.
1. Shipment Responsibility: Once a package is sent by the carrier and has a delivery confirmation, it is no longer within my control. In the event of any issues after the package is marked as delivered by the carrier, the responsibility for the safe receipt of the package lies with you, the recipient.
2. Protection Against Porch Pirates: I understand that package theft by porch pirates is a concern for many customers. To mitigate the risk of theft, I strongly recommend the following precautions:
Use a Secure Shipping Address: Whenever possible, choose a shipping address where you or a trusted individual will be present to receive the package upon delivery.
Use a PO Box: If you live in an area with a high incidence of package theft, consider renting a P.O. Box at your local post office or a private mailbox service to have your packages delivered securely.
Delivery Location: If you are unable to use a PO Box, consider having the package delivered to your workplace, a trusted neighbor, or a family member who can receive the package on your behalf.
Track Your Shipment: Keep a close eye on your shipment's tracking information provided by the carrier to know when to expect the delivery.
3. Reporting Lost or Stolen Packages: If you believe that your package was lost or stolen after the carrier marked it as delivered, please follow these steps:
Contact the Carrier: Reach out to the carrier who delivered your package (e.g., USPS, UPS, FedEx) to report the issue. They may be able to provide information or assistance regarding the delivery.
File a Police Report: If necessary, file a police report in the event of theft. You may be required to provide documentation from the carrier as evidence.
Contact Me: While I cannot replace or refund items for packages that were marked as delivered by the carrier, I am here to assist you with any documentation or information you may need to resolve the situation with the carrier or authorities.
4. Refund or Replacement Policy: As mentioned, it is not my responsibility to replace stolen packages. However, I will do my best to assist you with the carrier's procedures and provide any necessary documentation. Any potential refunds or replacements would be subject to the carrier's policies and are not guaranteed by my store.
Please note that this policy is designed to ensure that you, the customer, receive your orders securely. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation in taking precautions to prevent package theft. If you have any questions or concerns about my shipment policy, please do not hesitate to contact me. Your satisfaction and security are important to me, and I am here to assist you in any way I can.
What's the difference between a CAFTAN & a MUUMUU?
Muumuus are typically styled with Hawaiian themes. Caftans were invented for Ottoman sultans from the 14th to the 18th centuries. They are typically wore lavishly decorated.
Do you ship to my country?
YES! Both US domestic and international orders are shipped using USPS unless otherwise specified. Processing time at the moment is approximately 4-6 weeks because each item is created by hand. If you need the item quicker, I do offer a Rush Service on certain caftans with a lead time of 1-2 weeks. The fee only covers the rush service and not the cost of the caftan which will need to be purchased separately. .
Descriptions of the Fabrics I use in My Caftan:
Brocade: A stiffer fabric that gives caftans a more structured silhouette. It is identifiable by its raised design. Caftans made from brocades are ideal for evening wear, weddings, or even the red carpet.
Dead Stock: Is overstock or surplus fabric that was not used for its original purpose. Often these fabrics are vintage but sometimes modern, once these pieces sell out it is often impossible to restock them.
Lamé: A fabric made with metallic fibers mixed with other fibers (these can include silk, cotton, wool, viscose, nylon, polyester, or polyamide). The fabric is lightweight, and flowy despite the metal.
Glitter Lurex: Has glitter bonded to the fabric. Due to the nature of the production process glitter loss from the fabric is natural with a your new caftan, the glitter loss dissipates over time. I find a firm shake (outside) before my first wear helps with the excess glitter.
Cotton: Breathable, and comfortable in different climates. Caftans made from cotton do need to be ironed due to the nature of the fibers.
Satin: A flowy, soft fabric that is shiny. The drape from this fabric lends itself well to the caftan. It is also forgiving when it comes to wrinkles.
Tinsel: Any fabric that is described as being tinsel will have a texture to them, customers who have issues with tactile sensations may want to consider a satin or cotton caftan.
Jersey: Lightweight drapey knit with cotton-like feel. Made from a poly blend.
Is my caftan lined?
Caftans that are lined will be noted as such, others will not be lined.
