Packaging & Delivery
Your product will be beautifully packaged and sent to you with great care. All items will be delivered in a box that you can then use for storage of your piece, filled with acid-free tissue paper and wrapped separately to protect the box.
All items will be delivered to the address provided by you on the order form. We cannot be responsible for errors in the delivery information that you supply to us.
READY-TO-WEAR: We aim to dispatch within 5 working days for ready-to-wear orders, subject to order confirmations and payment received. However, due to the nature of our small studio business, very occasionally it may take longer. Please let us know if things are more urgent and we will do all that we can to accomodate.
MADE-TO-ORDER: We recommend 2-4 weeks for made-to-order items, but will discuss this in a case-by-case basis dependant on materials and current workload. Rush orders are often possible but may incur a further fee.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unworn, unmarked or undamaged and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging, with no tape or damage to the box.
A refund will be issued to the original card that was used for the purchase within 5 days of receipt of the return. This refund will include the full value of the items returned, including UK taxes, but excluding shipping costs and any taxes or import duties incurred.
If you are shipping an item over £50 (US$75), you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don't guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

Refunds will be credited to the account or card used to originally purchase the items, usually within 5 working days.
If 14 days have gone by since your purchase, then unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at email@example.com
Upon exchanging a product, the postage and packaging cost will be either paid by the customer or by Isla Campbell Millinery - this will be assessed dependant on the reason for the exchange.

Payments & Security
We accept payments via Paypal and all major credit and debit cards. All transactions are processed on our secure server.
For all commissions a 50% deposit is required and the remaining balance is paid upon collection or the day before dispatch. In the event of cancelling your order after putting a deposit down, the deposit is non-refundable.
Most headpieces are one-size-fits-most. Please let us know if you require a particularly small or large fitting.
Hats will be made to the head measurement specified upon ordering.
Body jewellery and harnesses are adjustable within reason and will be made to the size specified upon ordering.
Measure the circumference of your head horizontally, just above the top of ears, about an inch above your eyebrow. Wrap the measureing tape gently around your head, making sure the tape lies midway on your occipital bone (that little bump in the middle of the back of your head).
Don't pull the tape too tightly or your hat will fit that tightly.
Measure 2 or 3 times to be accurate.
If you don't have a measuring tape available then use a ribbon, shoelace or similar flexible length and compare to a ruler. Do this several extra times to be absolutely sure.
If you are buying a gift and want to get somebody else's measurement in secret then I suggest the tactic of starting a group conversation about comparitive body part sizes, then whip out a measuring tape!
If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
Caring for your purchase
Purchases will be packaged and sent to you with great care. All items will be delivered in a box that you can then use for storage of your piece, to keep it free of dust and away from light.
Pay attention to how the item is originally stored, especially if it is fragile and includes feathers - set it on the hardiest point, making sure the weight is not on the fragile elements, using tissue paper to prop it at the best angle.
It is advised not to leave any item in direct sunlight or hot vehicles, close to open flames or heat sources, or wear it in the rain.
If it gets dirty, lightly sponge it with a clean, damp cloth. Use a lint roller or sticky tape to remove lint and dust.
Feathers are delicate and fragile, but a lot more durable than you may think.
If they get squashed, bent, bedraggled or curved out of shape, then a bit of steam can work magic. You can use a garment steamer, steam iron or the steam from a kettle, but be very careful not to burn yourself or your item. Just aim the steam at the feathers and watch them straighten out - you can also gently stroke them between thumb and finger, from root to tip.
If they get damp, use a hair dryer to blow dry your feathers and let them fluff up again. Steaming after can also help restore them.
Unfortunately, if the spine of the feathers breaks there is little you can do, other than use a little glue gun to very carefully splinter the join.
NOTE: If the feathers have been curled as part of the design, steam will straighten them.
