FAQ

HOW DO I PRE-ORDER?

To pre-order an item, you will need to add the available product to your shopping bag as if you were placing a normal website order. You will then need to follow the check-out process as normal and pay the full amount + shipping for the item. As soon as the item is available we will send it out to you. If your order contains a mix of pre-orders and in stock items, we will ship the pre-orders separately at no extra charge. Your order confirmation email will contain both in stock and pre-order items.

 

HOW LONG DO PRE-ORDERS TAKE TO ARRIVE?

Pre-orders can take anywhere between 4-6 weeks (give or take) - this includes production, handling & shipment. Each Bonita Kaftan is hand embellished by some of India’s best artisans, and it takes time to hand stitch each crystal and sequin! We inform all of our customers on the progress of their order, and if the garment will be arriving earlier or later than originally quoted. We will email you to inform you of the despatch date, and shipping tracking number once it arrives. 

 

WHY DOES IT TAKE 4-6 WEEKS FOR A PRE-ORDER TO ARRIVE?

Pre-orders can take anywhere between 4-6 weeks due to the amount of detailing that goes into each garment. Our designs are printed on A-grade silk, and then colour-fasted using the appropriate solvents. After our fabrics are treated, the garment undergoes rigorous steaming and pressing. Once this is completed, our artisans begin hand embellishing individual sequins and crystals. Our kaftans are then hand cut and sewn together. Our kaftan's are a true work of art being printed onto fabric, and that is why it takes 4-6 weeks for any given pre-order.  

 

CAN I TRY ON A GARMENT BEFORE I PRE-ORDER?
