Our Customer Policy : Orders and Returns

Our compromise

Your 100% satisfaction is guaranteed on any product you buy from us. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your order—we love to hear from our customers.

Product Availability Promise

Our products are available only through Alpaca by Karim. We sell pieces that we have on inventory or pieces that we can make or order to our vendors and promise to ship your order within 6 weeks, but occasionally demand exceeds our limited capacity and can take longer (we’d let you know in advance)

Our alpaca production process involve either a handmade process or hand crafted process (we use the old fashion personal domestic machine in some products). On the other hand all our process involve custom yarns and fabrics produced sometimes by artisans and the flow of sources does not work mathematically and require considerable and flexible time to make. Even we charge your card on advance (because our system) you can cancel it any time if you feel better.

In any case, we will keep you informed. We are working on orders for more than 12 years and we been conducting honest and honorable business. We still want to keep our business personal and we want satisfied customers. 

Orders and backorders

For items on inventory we ship the next day placed the order (cutting time 1 pm PT).

For items not in inventory and will be place as back order we will ship within 4 weeks. 

Because the system we use we charge your card when you place the order, even on back orders (and not when we ship).  

Cancel your back order any time, except when it is a custom work and we are on the time of production promised. If we are talking about a custom order and we have pass the promised time the right o cancel.

Custom orders are a final sale, we suggest make sure of your measurements before you request a custom order.
