Gold piping
Silk lining - sleeves and body
3 outside pockets
A long waist sash with silk fabric fringed ends
Internal ties that are tied to a loop on the outside of the robe before the waist sash is tied
A fabric hook at the top underneath the collar so the robe can be hung on a hook.
The robe was expertly hand tailored in Hong Kong.

Returns and exchange details

I am happy to refund if you change your mind about the item. You will receive the refund (postage costs excluded) when I receive the goods back in the same condition they were sent.
I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost paid when:
The item is not as described or
The item is damaged in transit to such an extent that it can't be used or
The item is lost in transit.
If the item is slightly damaged in transit, but is still usable or repairable, I will discount the price. I will require proof of damage - an emailed photo will usually suffice.
If an item with a tracking number tracks as having been delivered and the buyer doesn't receive it, the buyer must take this up with the carrier. The carrier won't allow me to do this on the buyer's behalf. I will not refund in this situation.


Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know about before deciding to purchase.
