Thank you for visiting our Sashiko Web shop.
All of the products on this website will be shipped from Japan, with Japanese Postel Service (via Air, not via Ship). No matter how small the order is, the flat rate shipping fee of $18.00 will be applied to your order.
We have several distributors in the world, one in Australia and 2 (including Atsushi) in the U.S. These distributors covers all the shipping, insurance, tax and other things, so the price you may see on their website or on their counter at the textile show may be more expensive than the price on this website.
Please be advised that the price on this website is for the products shipped from Japan. The customer will be responsible for the shipping fee, and if necessary, custom and duty.
Atsushi is also planning to open an “Amazon Prime qualified account” on Amazon USA so people can enjoy the hassle free shipping experience. (There is an account already, but not prime qualified yet.)
We will try our best to arrange the most comfortable shopping environment for customers. Please be patient, and give me feedback so I can work on improving the issues first.
