Made to order items

For Made to order items we will notify you once the item is made. It takes from 2-12 weeks depending on the availability of the best quality of the raw material. We aim to be a sustainable business, which means we don’t use fibres grown with pesticides and we harvest the raw material only when in season. This can limit our productivity but makes your garment all the more rare and precious.

Thread Tales partners are based in a workshop on the Inle Lakes. The journey from their hands to yours is a long one. It can take 7-10 days to deliver your finished piece.


Returns and Exchanges

Thread Tales aim for all our customers to be happy with the quality and overall experience of purchasing a product with us.

Please note your garment has been handmade with exceptional skill by master weavers on traditional handlooms. Each garment is unique. This is the beauty of the design and any slubs in the fabric are part of its natural charm.

If however you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may return the unworn, unwashed item in its original packaging with the tags attached within 14 days of receipt for a full refund minus any shipping charges. If the reason for your return is that you are claiming the item you received was already in a damaged condition you must notify us within 7 days of receipt.
