We try our best to keep your shipping costs to a minimum. Our orders are shipped using a certified and trusted courier, like Canada Post, whom we trust to deliver your product[s] safely and securely. The price of shipping varies according to the size and weight of each product and the distance the item travels.

Once posted and in transit to you,  it is the couriers' responsibility to deliver your order safely and on time. We cannot, unfortunately, take full responsibility for your purchased goods once they have left our hands, however, we promise to assist you in resolving any issues that may arise to the best of our ability. Every order has a tracking number that we pay close attention to throughout the journey of your parcel.

International Shipping

Currently, we only ship to Canada, USA, United Kingdom, and Germany. We are very happy to calculate postage costs for you. Please email [email protected] with the item details and postal address. We can not take responsibility for Custom Fee charges if applicable, please research if these charges apply to your Country before placing your order as it is your responsibility to pay them. We suggest verifying that your country has no restrictions or import regulations on any of the materials listed (for example, bone, and wood) in your purchase before moving forward with the transaction to avoid any issues and ensure that your product can be delivered without interference.
