Delivery Times

by David Hober

Currently three weeks on average (normally one week) for an order to be delivered for DHL Express and on average 4+ weeks for registered airmail. Both require a signature for delivery. 

Please let us know if you need your order by a certain date and we will try to help you. We are not responsible for delivery with registered mail. DHL express is much more reliable and faster. Registered mail often has delays especially around holidays.

Sometimes but not always Registered mail will not have customs duty - which can be helpful for Canada, the UK, France and other countries.

Black Grosgrain Silk Cummerbund

We made a classic 4 pleat, black grosgrain and handwoven black Thai silk cummerbund today.

The cummerbund is for the upcoming wedding of a caligraphy artist; who requested a ribbon style closure in the back and a hidden pocket.

We have designed a solid brass clasp and slider which we are in the process of having a mold made for now. Probably in about three months the clasps and sliders will be cast and we will start making a clasp and slider style cummerbund in addition to today's ribbon closure style.
