Delivery & Shipping


This year more than any other has forced us to rethink and reshape the brand and its direction. One of this biggest changes we've been adapting to is our environmental footprint and the sustainability of our production process. One of the largest changes put in place was minimising product wastage and deadstock. So for BLACK FRIDAY, all items in the BLACKOUT collection are made specifically for your order.
This new process of manufacturing to order means we can make the highest quality items, reduce fabric wastage, and reduce production and shipping times. Most importantly, these are savings we can pass on to you. We look forward to sharing more of our business changes for 2023 over the coming months.
However with all upsides, there is a slight downside and this is how it will effect shipping times. As all items are manufactured to order, this does take time. We have been working with our suppliers to help speed up this process and we are happy to announce all items will be produced within 21 working days from purchase.
Our normal shipping times will apply. In many cases items will take less than 21 days, so depending on the items in your we will aim to get this our to you as soon as possible.
As BLACK FRIDAY & CYBER MONDAY is one of the busiest shopping periods, there may be slight delays in shipping from our warehouse due to demand increase on postal or courier services.
