Shipping on our website is automatically calculated when you click the "add to shopping cart icon" next to the item you are wanting to purchase. The shipping price will automatically show up for your destination and you can then decide to carry on with the order or abandon the order. Shipping prices are given below and are based on a weight system. Some items on our website have free shipping and will be sated next to the item description

In regard to shipping due to the nature of the goods( all being hand crafted ) the time taken to deliver items to your address can take up to 3 weeks but in most cases goods will be received within 14 days. It all depends on the product purchased.

Most of the goods are air freighted across but in some cases ,due to the size and the weight of larger products the price to air freight the item across does not warrant the expense and in that case it is then shipped over to you surface mail , which then takes 6 -10 weeks.

We found the best way to ship the items with a quicker time zone, was to air freighted them through South African Postal Services International. Should you require a different postage method or don't mind waiting a longer period we can reduce the price of postage by sending the item surface mail. This however can take up to 3 month to ship the item over to you. please E-mail us if you require this method or any other.

We can send items via courier which will take 5 days to an international destination. However this option is very expensive and we advise clients not to take this option unless you need the items quickly. E-mail us to inquire about fast courier charges.

The prices indicated below are for air freighted parcels and are calculated on a weight system working with a minimum weight of 500g

The air freighted tariffs are:

International from South Africa......

1st 500g $12-00 (thereafter)
per 100g $1.35
