Dried calabash is very similar to wood, delicate and fragile medium. Even we break them while drilling or crafting on them. Maybe we don't mind a broken calabash but it is a waste of time as well as art. So we like to make sure the lampshades are delivered safely in solid form as initially boxed. Below is how we box them. As our gourd lampshades are not small, they become a large box. This box will travel continents, change planes and go through customs.
Our returns policy is simple and straight forward.
If you receive a damaged or broken lampshade, we will replace it for free including the shipping.
If you receive the lamp in good condition and promised but still not happy with it. We will accept the return but we will not refund you the shipping costs both ways.
