WHEN?

Our turnaround time might vary depending on workload. As our products are handmade by our small team in our workshop, the crafting time usually takes about two to three weeks.

Please contact us to know about our current turnaround time. We ship the product as soon as it's complete. This does not apply to national holidays and strikes affecting the shipping procedure, as the third party services may be closed.

WHERE?

We ship worldwide via registered priority air mail through the Hellenic Post Office (ELTA) or ACS, depending on your location, as explained in the next paragraph.

In case of packages returning as "unclaimed", the customer is liable for the cost of second postage.

HOW?

Registered International mail is a secure, low-cost shipping service and your package is accompanied by a tracking code*. We use this service for packages shipped outside of the EU as well as Estonia, Portugal, Norway and Sweden.

For EU deliveries we use ACS EU Economy which is a tracked courier service. The courier service may contact you on the email your order was placed with to notify and to arrange delivery/pickup.

Within 3 days from when your package is shipped, you'll be notified and we'll provide you with the tracking number of the delivery. 
The postperson will have to deliver the package personally to you, so your signature will be required. In case you can't be reached at the address you provided, a notice will be left there, so you can arrange delivery or pick the package up from your local post office. We retain the right to ship pairs of the same order separately. In this case, you'll receive more than one tracking code.

*Registered packages are trackable through all stages for most countries but there are a few exceptions. Please, check with your National Post to learn if they provide tracking for Registered International Mail.
