4. How do I know when your new products are in stock?

You can subscribe to notification's for our new launch here 

5. Can you paint designs from your wooden homeware range on your steelware items?

No, we deliberately don’t do that. Our product ranges are designed both with the ‘canvas’ and the style of art in mind, to ensure a certain end product. This also gives our artists—who all paint in different styles—equal employment opportunities to keep them motivated, and makes sure they don’t compete with each other.

6. How do you pay your artists?

Our artists aren’t paid a salary but are paid per unit instead (so a big part of what you pay for your product goes to them). This keeps them motivated, and helps us work with them on developing new designs—because they know that a popular new design means more income for them.

Of course, this increases the base cost of each item, but it allows us to experiment with designs knowing that our artists are also invested in the design process.

7. Can I be sure that my order will reach me in time?

We make sure to give a realistic estimated delivery time for all our orders. Unfortunately, with the complex logistics involved, it is sometimes impossible to avoid delays, especially when materials are being shipped across the country and back. However, we make sure we keep our clients informed whenever a it seems a delay might occur.

10. Is there something I should know as  first time buyer ? 

As a discerning customer, you should know that

1. We pay our artists on a per-unit basis, and the more complex the design, the higher the payment per piece. This keeps our artists motivated and happy, and encourages the next generation of artists to continue practising this form of art.

2. This is a hand-painted product, and therefore will have minor inconsistencies. This makes each piece unique, rather than defective. We will not accept returns on account of this.

3. While we take photos that represent the true colors as far as possible, the actual colors of the product may be slightly different. This is due to variations in how mobile or computer screens display color.

4. Exposure to extreme heat, moisture or strong cleaning agents may damage the product. To clean, wipe the surface lightly with a damp cloth.

6. Once we receive the order it will be dispatched within 4 working days.
