We have put together this page as an introduction to hopefully answer some of your most frequently asked questions.
If you do seek further advice just visit our contact page to send us an email or speak to us.
- WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?
All our accessory products are sourced from Australian suppliers who all make their products in Australia also.
- HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO ARRIVE?
We ship orders on Mon-Thurs, and if your order is received before 11am (Brisbane, QLD time) it will often be shipped the same day.
All orders are sent using Australia Post and local deliveries generally take 2-7 business days to arrive.
If you would like to get your order as quickly as possible we have a flat rate express shipping option of $15 for Australia.
You can find information on shipping internationally and extra info on shipping here...
- I LIVE IN BRISBANE SO IS IT POSSIBLE TO PICKUP MY ORDER?
Yes you sure can! Just enter the code 'studiopickup' when at the checkout and shipping will be free. You can add in the notes when you would like to pickup your order from our home studio and we will send you an email after we receive your order to confirm the requested time.
- CAN I MAKE A CHANGE TO MY ORDER?
As a small business it is easy to make changes to your order if needed.
It is always best to email as soon as possible as we often ship orders same day, but simply reply to your order confirmation if you would like to add anything or change a size etc.
You can always message or call us during business hours on 0480 276 589 as this is often the quickest way to receive a response.
If your change needs additional payment we will simply email you with an order to complete.
- WHAT TYPE OF PACKAGING DO YOU USE?
We are pleased to say that no plastic is used during the production of our clothing. Cut pieces and finished garments are all transported locally by us in reusable bags or cardboard hangers. As for sending out orders, Sarah wraps your orders in recyclable kraft with a small amount of masking tape for extra security. After removing the masking tape, the kraft paper is able to go into your home compost or worm farm. We are currently using a new satchel for mailing that is 100% recyclable and made from ocean waste. You can read more about this on our journal here to learn why we chose this as our current mailer.
- WHERE ARE YOUR FABRICS MADE?
A large portion of both the Bestowed and RANT collections are knits, and the majority of these are 100% Australian made. Our organic cottons, bamboo and merino are the main knits that we have locally made.
Our woven fabrics are sourced for the highest quality and are made in Japan, South Korea or Italy.
- HOW DO I ORGANISE A RETURN?
Returns are easy to organise and we are happy for you to send back items if they have their tags attached and are unworn (even if they are from our Clearance section!).
Just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you are sending back and whether you would like to organise an exchange or refund.
Your first exchange will be shipped back for free though you are responsible for sending returns back to us. Lots of our customers reuse our packaging to post returns which is so great to see!
Returns will be accepted within 14 days of your order being received and further details on returns, including our postal address, can be seen here...
- AN ITEM I WAS WANTING IS OUT OF STOCK, WILL YOU BE MAKING MORE?
It is always worthwhile contacting us if an item is out of stock to see if we will be making it again. If it is in our Clearance section then we will be unlikely making more anytime soon, but both RANT and Bestowed have quite a few styles we have been running for many years because of their popularity.
- ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN FRIENDLY?
Our Bestowed label is made from only pure cotton so the entire range is naturally vegan friendly.
RANT uses many cotton, bamboo, tencel and cellulose blends which are all vegan friendly. There are however, a small range of garments made from merino, and while the Australian made wool we source is certified non-mulesed by the RSPCA, it is not vegan-friendly.
- CAN I LAYBUY?
Yes, we are happy to organise laybuys offline. Just contact us with the items you were wanting and we will send through an invoice with our bank details which you can then make part payments over time.
