It takes about less than a week on average, provided you have told us your phone number beforehand and there is no delay at customs.
There may be shipping restrictions and delays due to sudden changes in legislation and COVID-19. When in doubt, please contact us to check if we can ship our products to your country.
For the customers residing within the EU: Following the recent rule change regarding custom clearance and VAT payment for products bought online, VAT can be prepaid on ETSY for orders under 150 euro (excl. shipping fee). Thanks to this system, you do not have to pay any extra handling fees to the shipping company.
There is no change for orders above 150 euros: we can ship you our kits but you will most likely have to go to your local custom office to pay applicable taxes and duty (about 60 euros for one kit, including DHL's handling fee).
Notes: We cannot ship to P.O. boxes.
What is Kintsugi?
Kintsugi is a traditional Japanese art form that originated in the 15th century, and it's been around for over 500 years. When a cherished piece of pottery or porcelain breaks, Kintsugi specialists repair it using natural materials such as genuine lacquer and then decorate the repair marks with gold or silver to make them stand out instead of trying to hide them. Rather, we should allow cracks and blemishes in our belongings to shine and tell a story of their own. The result is an object that's more beautiful than before it was broken, and uniquely valuable because of its history. This is the kintsugi philosophy.

We believe that there's something special about a piece of broken pottery—it's not just an object that needs to be thrown away, but rather it becomes a treasure once repaired with gold or silver lacquer and put back together.
