We do not believe in creating unnecessary waste, so why create a whole range?
No, we much prefer to wait for you, our customer, to place an order for something you will love. This way, we know it will be cherished, instead of possibly hiding in a wardrobe.
To that end, please consider any purchase wisely.
1.2 PLACING AN ORDER
When you place your order with us, we will sent you a confirmation email to confirm your payment has been received.
If you choose from the standard range of sizes and choose your denim colour you are good to go. Order placed!
You can find the size information on the product descriptions.
1.4 WHAT IF I CHOOSE TO CUSTOMISE?
If you feel the standard sizes don’t quite work for you, choose the customise option when ordering. When the payment is made, the order is placed and you will receive a confirmation email.
At the same time, we get in touch to arrange a video call so we can discuss your size requirements. This will allow both parties to ensure the correct sizes have been taken for your order. Once we agree the sizes with you, we will confirm via email and instruct our makers to begin making your order.
1.5 CAN I CHANGE MY ORDER AFTER IT HAS BEEN PLACED?
This might be possible, but could be determined by whether production has commenced. Please contact us at email@example.com, quoting your order number, and we will do our best to help you with your order.
1.6 PAYMENT OPTIONS
We accept most major card payments.
1.7 INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
At present, Arkdefo is only shipping within the UK. Please contact us if you reside outwith the UK and we can discuss payment options for shipment, based on your region.
We are more than happy to ship but we would prefer to remain transparent with shipping costs, especially since Brexit!
1.8 TRACKING YOUR ORDER
Once your order is ready and has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email with your tracking number and a link. With this tracking number you will be able to track you parcel. A signature will be required as proof of receipt on delivery.
Please refer to International Shipping 1.7. Any additional charges, or import/export regulations would need to be considered on a case by case basis and discussed at the time. We are happy to ship anywhere but costs could be prohibitive. Best to discuss!

2.9 RESERVED RIGHTS
Arkdefo reserves the right to cancel and refund any order, at any time, for any reason.
Your item is upcycled denim material and, as such, can be washed accordingly. A hand wash or dry cleaning would be the options that retain the garments quality and extend its longevity. If you have a stain it would be beneficial to at least discuss with a dry cleaning specialist on how best to treat.
As with all clothing, domestic washing machines will eventually reduce the life of the garment due to friction created in the drum cycle. If you choose this method, it is suggested a cool 30deg C gentle cycle, as suggested for all denim products.
If you have any question regarding cleaning or care, please contact a local dry cleaning specialist.
