Henri Kuikens

All my textile prints are made with hand-carved linoleum blocks and water-based ink on natural fibres. 

My fabrics are sourced locally, in Cape Town, either at cotton mills in my area or at flea markets; I enjoy working with whatever I can find, rather than ordering huge amounts of one thing. Printing patterns with individual hand-carved blocks means that I'm able to design the layout of the pattern as I print.

 
See more about my printing process on my blog.

Shipping:
All items are shipped via the South African post office, with a tracking number. Delivery is usually within 5 working days, and parcels can be tracked online. 

Most of my items are made to order, and these lead times are noted in the product descriptions. 

Returns and Refunds:

If you're not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 10 days of receipt of it. I will happily refund the purchase price, minus shipping costs, upon receipt of returned items in good condition. Return shipping costs must be paid by the customer.
 
Lost parcels:
These are handled on a case-by-case basis. If a parcel hasn't arrived within a reasonable time, I will refund or resend the item, provided I have another available.
 
Returned parcels:
If a parcel is returned to me by the postal service, but did reach your city and was sent to the address provided, I'll contact you to confirm your address and try to send it again. Should you prefer to end the transaction at this point, I will refund you the cost of the item, but not the shipping costs.

A Note About Colours:
While I make every effort to portray the colours of my prints and fabrics accurately, do please be aware that monitors differ, and the display of colours can vary.
