Would you like to receive some rope samples?

Sometimes you are just not sure of a size or color and in those cases, a sample can help. We ship up to 5 little samples (about 10 cm) per order. There are no costs for the samples (just for shipping - see below).
Should you consider a longer piece (when it is not about color but more about texture and how it feels to work with that size or rope kind), please just ask!

IMPORTANT - PART 1

  • If you just want a quick overview - in rope samples - of what rope I am selling; please pick 'standard rope samples'.
  • If you are looking at a specific rope: please choose accordingly and do specify what kind of rope (braided, twisted or stringrope), what mm you would like to receive and also tell me if you want to see specific colors.

We trust you understand we cannot send you a sample of all our available colors, simply because we have soooo many colors and the collection changes very often as well.

IMPORTANT - PART 2
Within NL we will send you the rope samples for only the shipping costs (one stamp) - or you can of course include them in your order.
Do you live outside of NL? Please do note: because of international shipping regulation, we cannot ship samples out of the Netherlands in an envelope. The international shipping rules requires us to send it as a package (which is insane - I know!). So outside NL you can ONLY order samples when you order other items as well so we can include them in your package. Or, in case you are willing to pay the full price for a package, just to send you the sample card, then eh... ok!

Our Oriental Line is brand new! Well, for us offering it to you. We started selling it in December 2019. And we are very proud we can as we are in very good company (see below) and the quality of this rope is very good.

This rope is made in an ethically run factory in southern Turkey where they don't use chemicals (or as little as possible) in the processing of dying the rope.
And of course, the cardbox cones are made from recycled material.

This company is enormous and works very professional. They can litteraly produce everything I need or better, everything you want. All sizes, colors and amounts are possible. Only thing is that I cannot just order a box with something, no you need to order a full pallet (over 700 kilo of rope!) at once. So yes, we love to hear your requests and we will add them to the queue for the next order.

Others who sell this rope (and I can tell you, that are some BIG names in macrame-rope-land (foreign)!), arranged the Oeko-tex certificate for the rope as it does qualifies for it (but it costs a lot of money to get this certificate so I cannot (yet) afford to have it labeled like that as well but well, do know that it does qualify for it! 

ALL SHIPPING

  • We always aim to ship your package either the same day or the next day.
  • You will receive a message with track & trace code so you know when your package is on the way.
  • We trust you and we trust ourselves but.. .we do not always trust the post ;-) Because we want to make sure, everything you order, arrives with you save and as fast as possible, we ship everything with a track & trace code. This makes it a bit more expensive but gives us both more insurance that your package will arrive.
    • Note: only very small shippings within NL (things that fit in an envelope), we will send without track & trace. Should you request it to be send with track & trace, then please do contact me.

NATIONAL SHIPPING (within NL)

National shipping: track & trace and insurance
All our national shippings are shipped with track & trace. This only means you know where your package is and when to expect it. This is not an insurance in case something happens with your package while on the way. 

As for the insurance of your package; please select accordingly at check out (for only  €0,70 extra your package is ensured for loss, damage etc. on route). We strongly advise you to do so when you spend money (for example over €50,-) as otherwise, when something happens, we cannot be held liable.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

International shipping: track & trace and insurance
All our international shippings (one exception - see below) are send with a track & trace code and they are insured.

  • For shippings within Europe the insurance is up to 500 euro.
  • For shippings outside the EU this is up to 100 euro.

For international, small (less then 350 gram) shippings:
The international rules and regulation changed when shipping to addresses outside of the Netherlands. Unfortunately this means that from 2020 onwards, goods may no longer be franked in the same way as letters. I can frank this type of shipment as a parcel without Track & Trace (being a little cheaper), registered mail or insurance service. Other countries also require that the Dutch post shares information about the content with them digitally in advance.

Long way short: this means shipping small/light items got more expensive :-(
I choose to ONLY send items with track & trace - so as a package. As for those few euros that shipping it without track & trace, it is simply not worth it as packages tend to 'magically disapear' too often in such case. 
So if you want a cute plant animal or just 1 wooden macrame ring, it might be smart to add some to your order in order to make the shipping costs more economical.

Calculated weight: for all foreign shippings:
Our system counts the total weight of your shipping. Most of the time, this should give the right shipping price in the end. But  when you order a lot, we also need bigger boxes - meaning more shipping material. And this has a weight as well. So sometimes, the weight could be a bit more then automatically calculated. In that case, we will send you a message with the extra costs, before shipping your package. When you agree, we will send you an invoice for those extra shipping costs. After receiving your payment, we will ship your package. 
On the other hand: if we calculated you a normal package price for shipping and there is a way of shipping it cheaper, we will do so and refund you the money you were charged too much.
