The artisans who create the products we sell often work under unpredictable conditions including power outages, floods, monsoons, droughts, transportation and shipping issues and limited availability of raw materials. These can all cause delays in delivery. The fact that each item is crafted by hand means they take more time to make. For you, the customer, this may mean an item becomes unavailable during the order process. If this happens, we will work with you to get the product to you as soon as possible.
