All orders will ship within 72 hours of payment. 

I  prefer payment through PayPal, but will accept all major credit cards

I am currently only shipping within the United States. 

If you are local to the Pittsburgh area, I will make every effort to meet you to save on shipping costs.  If planning to meet in person, contact me before placing your order to arrange payment.

I do not accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations.  However, I want you to be happy with your purchase so please contact me within seven days of receiving your order if you have any problems.

All the coffee bean sacks used in my designs are authentic, used bags that are originally constructed for the storage and shipping of green coffee beans around the world.  I choose my designs based on the orientation of the graphics and I utilize all areas free of major imperfections.  Uneven or crooked designs or incomplete printing, as well as slight color variations or imperfections, are to be expected as they are inherent qualities of the sacks 

making each one unique and one-of-a-kind.

Care Instructions:  Carefully spot clean only.  Machine or hand washing may cause the ink printed on the coffee sack to bleed or fade.  

Please contact me if you are interested in a particular color or country of origin.  Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of my inventory, I cannot guarantee special orders but I am willing to work with you to find something that interests you.

My goal is to recycle, upcycle, and prevent these beautiful fabrics from adding to the waste of a landfill.  I will gladly accept donations of coffee bean sacks, quality home decorator fabric or upholstery remnants and/or pattern samples.

All my products are handcrafted by me in my smoke-free, but very cat-friendly home. 

Chester and Bernie closely supervise and QC every stage of production!
