FAQs & Good To Know Information

SHIPPING : Items in stock will ship out within 2 days unless I am traveling. If I am away from my merchandise, I will have a notice at the top of the page of the next soonest ship date.

RETURNS: We do not do returns but are happy to exchange items if you are not satisfied with a new item in the first 30 days. We strive to show items accurately and with enough detail to convey each items' qualities. Proper care of products will ensure a long life of the item and it's infused colors. If you have any questions about an item, don't hesitate to email us.

SKIN SENSITIVITY: I use only biodegradable, non-toxic, planet safe soaps and fabric softeners to make sure our fabrics are safe for all skin types (our favorite is 7th generation products). Most plant dyes we use have almost no record of allergies but do please make sure you are not allergic to any of the plants used in our dyes before wearing our textiles on your own skin. While natural dyes are often much safer than synthetic for the skin, and can even be medicinal when worn, some people are allergic to certain plants.

LOW INCOME OPTIONS / TRADES & BARTERING : Because money isn't everything and I believe we all have skills and gifts to share, I happily do trades and barters for goods and services. I have traded my wares for pottery, stained glass, tai chi lessons, and clothes from other makers. Feel free to email me if you want to make a trade!

Product Care

In short, "Hand made? Hand wash." Round Trip Goods are embedded with living plant dyes and will change with you over time. This is natural and part of the journey of the fabric and plant infusion. Some colors darken, some lighten, some shift from pinks to reds or blues to purples.

The best way to keep your items from fading is to hand wash them inside out in cold water, with a gentle soap. Hang dry or dry inside out in dryer. This is an earth friendly laundry habit that can be applied to all clothing, and it's quicker and easier than you think! Washing items in the bathroom sink with hand soap, then hanging on a towel rack works pretty well!

Ironing items after they dry works great at getting cotton back to a smooth finish. Store away from direct sunlight when not in use.

Pieces are treated and dyed with great care to be lightfast and washfast; even so, long exposure to sunlight, harsh soaps, citric acid (think lemonade), and hot water will change your items’ colors faster

Our items are designed to be unisex, user-friendly, and multi functional to encourage creative interactions and a long life for the product. Hopefully you use your Round Trip Goods until they are worn out from love and daily use. We encourage you to repair, and repurpose your products if you think it’s at the end of their life cycle. We would love to hear of ways you reuse old textiles of any kind. Post on social with #maketheroundtrip to share ideas.
