Shopping and Return FAQs

Yay!!  I'm so glad you are reading this page, and I appreciate you taking the time to look this over.  If you have any questions not covered below please use the Message tab to reach out.   

What to expect with your transaction:  

Your order will be packaged up and in the mail within the next 1-5 business days.   You will receive a confirmation email for your order, exactly as it was placed.  Once your order is shipped, you will get another email with a USPS tracking code.  Be sure to check all your folders for these emails if you do not see the confirmation in your inbox.

Orders are tracked within the USPS system.  International orders are tracked with insurance.  Please recognize Victoria Peace and/or Batikwalla LLC is not responsible for lost or missing packages that have been shipped and recorded into the system.

When necessary, contact me with the receipt link or the confirmation email so I can easily identify you and your order.  My name is Victoria.  Please do not contact me through alternative means as I won't be able to track it.  Due to the fluctuating volume of comments, conversations and orders, these important messages can get lost if they are not sent directly to me via email.

Please Note: Orders can not be changed.  No holds, exchanges, or custom orders.  Returned items are refunded directly through the means it was paid for.

INTERNATIONAL SHOPPERS: We do not modify values to avoid Customs declarations for international shipping.  Please account for the appropriate duties and taxes specific to your region.  

- -  RETURN INFORMATION GUIDELINES - - 

Yes, returns are accepted!  You may return your batik within the 2 week timeline explained below.  Contact me for a quick response for the return mailing address if you need it.  However, exchanges are not accepted.  

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT:

Any and all returns need to be clarified with an email NO LATER THAN 14 DAYS after receiving your item, with the exception of special circumstances that have been previously discussed in an email, such as Holiday or Birthday gifts. 

  1. Please communicate with me within 2 weeks of the arrival of your order, either by returning the batik or contacting me via email to request the return address.  If this is a gift, returns are accepted up to 14 days after major holidays or the day of your event.  Please make a note of this in your transaction.  

  2. Do not wear or return a batik with the tags removed.

  3. Returned orders must have a tracking code for the security of the package.

Because of the limited supply, the technical aspect of managing this website, and the evolving nature of this handmade inventory, I kindly ask that you respect these guidelines.  Returned items must be in their original condition - unwashed and unworn, with the Batikwalla tag intact.  Do not abuse the return policy with indiscriminate shopping tactics and multiple returns.  Do not send repeated requests for exceptions to these policies.  It's not cool, and it shows a lack of respect for the other customers.  These are creative, artistic pieces I personally labored over with significant effort.  This is not low-end throw away clothing, so PLEASE don't treat me, this website, or the batik-loving community that way!    

Returns can accommodated easily and quickly using common courtesy in a simple request.      

Washing Instructions:

Machine wash and dry in any temperature.  Do not hand wash or hang to dry unless it's absolutely necessary (for travel).  Wring out as much water as possible.  And be careful where you dry these unique treasures!  I had a customer lose a favorite tshirt from a laundry line between alley apartments while traveling Europe.  Another reported back that she lost her batik as it dried next to a Disney fountain, and another sweet customer discovered her new batik missing from the cubby compartments in the Ritz shower at OCF.  These batiks are all one of a kind and have a subtle way of standing out.  Many people don't know where to get them, and don't understand the connection you may have with your batik.  It's really the only unfortunate side effect of having something cool and unique, and it's easy to forget sometimes.  

Fortunately, I see WAY more stories about the abundance of compliments a customer receives after purchasing a batik, and they tell me how long their batik has lasted them over the years.  Many insist they must acquire another!  Thank you!  And welcome back - I'm happy to make this artwork for you!
