- Delivery and collection
Deliveries are shipped through PostNL or DPD. All orders are shipped with tracking.
Collection by appointment is possible. You can tick this option during the ordering process. Collection is only possible from Monday to Friday between 9.00 and 16.30 from our warehouse location and after notification that your order is ready and waiting. You cannot choose patterns at the collection location and you need to place a prior order at the webshop.
It is also possible to have your order delivered to a PostNL post office or DPD Pick Up Parcel Shop.
We are obliged to charge you the return costs of DPD charged to us if you do not collect the order (in time). These costs are high: Belgium € 11.18, Germany € 11.60 and the Netherlands € 9.53. The shipping costs of your order will not be credited in this situation. For a new shipment, shipping costs will be charged again. P>
You will receive a shipping notice on the day of shipping. Please let us know if your order has not been delivered after two weeks. Complaints about delivery will not be considered after the 2-month term has lapsed.
Subsequent deliveries are shipped at no extra cost.
Aforementioned rates include handling and packing costs.
Important notice: we are not responsible for undelivered orders caused by incorrectly supplied address details!
- Delivery time
We try to deliver the items within 2 working day s (in the Netherlands). We will try to explain here why it is impossible for us to indicate an exact delivery time.
In most cases, orders placed before 14.00 are shipped on the same day. The expected delivery time is stated at every article in our webstore and depends on the available stock.
You will receive a message from us if the delivery time may be longer than the indicated delivery time. You will then have the opportunity to cancel your order or to choose an alternative item.
You are sent a shipping notice on the day of shipping. Your order should then be delivered within the indicated delivery time. If this is not the case, please get in touch with us.
There are few exceptions:
- a number of smaller/less well-known brands are imported from the USA. We regularly experience that shipments are held for more than 3 weeks (!) by Dutch customs for clearance. We do not know beforehand which orders will be selected, causing the delivery time to sometimes run up to a month. Fortunately, this does not happen often.
- in special offer-periods, when it is exceptionally busy in the shop, the delivery time may increase somewhat.
- for shipping to addresses outside of the Netherlands (Europe), the delivery time is longer by an average of 2 working days. Depending on the mail delivery service in the country in question, the delivery time may be one week.
If you need a pattern before a certain date, please get in touch with us before you place your order. We can then inform you of the delivery time. This helps to prevent disappointment.
Items will be reserved up to one week if you've chosen the bank transfer payment option!
