Important Note to International buyers: USA customs forms now require a recipient telephone number.

Without a telephone number we may be unable to ship your order.

International Buyers are responsible for VAT taxes or custom duties, if any. This could  add about 20% if your country charges such taxes.

International payment and shipping policies.

VAT taxes and import duties:

    International Buyers are responsible for taxes or custom duties, if any. This is an increasing issue. Several countries are adding VAT plus a substantial handling fee to be collected from the buyer before delivery. This is very common in the UK, but we also have reports of such charges from France, the Netherlands, and Canada. There may be other countries doing so as well. We regret that there is nothing we can do to influence this, nor provide specifics of the charges. In the UK, for example, this seems to be 20% VAT plus 8 GBP handling fee; this amounts to almost $50 added to the price of a cordmaker. Please note that The Handweavers Studio is a UK supplier of our gripfids.

    If customs regulations require additional licenses from us, we may cancel shipments and refund your payment.

 Payment:

    We accept credit cards and other payment forms ONLY via PayPal. See www.paypal.com
