How can I get in contact?


Please contact via email at: patternpunch@gmail.com




Can you make custom designs?


If you can’t quite find what you are looking for, or have something specific in mind, do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. Please note, that if products are made to order, they may be exempt from the standard product returns policy as they are deemed a bespoke item.




Why do you not have more than one of the same item?


All the products are hand-made and as unique as possible, so they are often ‘one off’ designs and pattern combinations. If you have any special requests, please get in touch.




Can I wash any items?


Necklaces:

In the event of any marks, first try dabbing with a damp cloth (trying not to oversaturate the item). Otherwise, it is possible to try a gentle handwash. Whilst fabrics have been pre-washed, the rope may be subject to a little shrinkage, so please bear this in mind if washing. Note: items would be non-refundable if worn/washed.

Zip Bags:

Yes, a gentle handwash cycle on your machine should be fine. All materials have been pre-washed to avoid shrinkage.

Earrings:

No, it is not advised that these get wet, so remove for showering etc.




What are the necklaces made of?


The necklaces use 100% cotton fabric and rope. The magnetic clasps are copper (magnet), with a metal alloy electroplated on the surface of the copper. They are lead, nickel and cadmium free. Please refer to tips for safe handling for further information. It is not advised that pacemaker wearers do not come into contact with magnets.




What Payment Methods can I use?


You can check out with most Credit or Debit Cards, or use PayPal. Click the PayPal check out button for all payment options.




What are your earrings made of?


Earrings use real leather. These are sourced as 'off cuts' which may have otherwise gone to waste for a more eco-friendly option. Earring findings are either 18k gold plated brass (gold earring hoops) or Rhodium plated brass (silver earring hoops) and are lead and nickel free.
