nude ethics frequently asked questions
QUESTIONS ABOUT ORDERS - Sorry it's long, trying to cover it all! I won't though, new things always pop up.
Q.1/ Are you delivering during Coronavirus (Covid-19)?
Nude Ethics independent store is still running during Covid-19. Nude Ethics ethical clothing is based at home and so all items can be shipped, free from contact of others. There are no staff members other than myself, so no one is in harms way. All your support in this time is greatly appreciated.
Due to the coronavirus, Tracked & Signed delivery has been suspended to avoid any unnecessary contact and may take longer than estimated due to staff shortages. If there are any issues with delivering to your area, I'll remove the shipping option, or be in contact. If Royal Mail is unable to ship to your area, orders that have not been dispatched, will be refunded straight away.
Q.2/Do you have a size guide?
Yes! You can find the size guide on the individual product with its suggested best fit. Nude Ethics currently stocks size XSMALL - XXLARGE. This is an estimate of sizing as we are all different shapes, yay!
Q.3/Where are Nude Ethics and others brands made?
Well, it's all made ethically of course. Each item has a link or information about the brand and where it's made. Go to 'About' to get to know us better.
Q.4/Are out-of-stock items restocked?
If an item is out of stock, I'll aim to get more. (Unless it is a vintage or one of a kind). If I don't plan to get more stock, it will be removed from the website.
Q.5/Do you delivery to my country? How much is delivery?

It's only on rare occasions that parcels go missing, but rest assured, any issues will be resolved. I do care!
Q.6/Is your packaging plastic free? Well duh....
Nude Ethics is100% Plastic free! Packaging is made of recycled and recyclable paper and card. Everything can be recycled, from the delivery stickers to the thank you cards. On occasion, I'll try new packaging products, which may include using post-consumer recycled plastic - I tried some post-consumer tape, wasn't for me! Tape is once again made from paper. It's always good though to try recycled plastic time to time - give those recycled pieces a new chance at life. That's kinda what vintage is right?
Q.7/How can I be sure that I’ve made my purchase correctly?
Once you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email.
Q.8/Can I amend my delivery address?
You can amend your delivery address before dispatch by emailing me. Once your order has been dispatched, I can’t make any changes to your delivery address and your order will be sent out to you as per your order confirmation.
If the delivery address is incorrect and you don't receive your parcel, Nude Ethics is not responsible for replacing your parcel. Please make sure your address is correct.
Q.9/Can I cancel my order?
Yes. If the order hasn’t dispatched then the order can be cancelled. In this instance, respond to the email confirmation for your order. You will receive another email if your order has been already dispatched.
Q.10/What should I do if I receive an incorrect item?
In the unlikely event of receiving a faulty item or wrong item, please respond to your order email.
Please note, I only accept refunds for faulty goods within 14 days of expected delivery date.
Q.11/Can I return an item?
Full priced t shirts, jumpers & other branded items can be returned. Underwear and earrings cannot be returned for hygiene reasons. Sale items and Vintage cannot be returned. If you wish to return an unwanted item, respond to the email confirmation for your order. You have 14 days from receiving your item. Refunds won't take place until I receive your item back in its original unworn condition.
Please note: shipping costs of returned items, including items for exchange, are at the buyer's expense and will not be refunded. Shipping costs will also not be refunded for uncollected items.
If the item had a tag on it, it must still be attached. If the item may appear worn or stained, the item will be sent back to you, not great for the environment.
Q.12/How long will it take to process a return?
Please allow up to 10 working days for me to receive your items, process your return and confirm your refund amount via email. It may take up 4 weeks for your refund to be returned to you from the date that you post your item/s back to me, and will vary for international returns. It's not that I want to keep your money, honest you can have it back - I just have no control over how banks work - crazy things.
If you’re having any problems returning the item or it has been more than 4 weeks since you sent it, respond to the email confirmation for your order.

I can offer gifts as payments to bloggers wishing to wear and post about Nude Ethics, but please note, because of limited stock, I only offer this to a small selection of bloggers that have shown real interest to Nude Ethics and life an ethical lifestyle. If you'd like to support my store, you can simply show some love through social media.

Q.3/Will Nude Ethics join my marketplace/ app?
The Nude Ethics collection is only available on and Depop. I will not be stocking my collection on any additional site or online marketplaces. As my store is only run by myself I am not looking to expand to more sites.
Q.4/Are there any job vacancies?
Nude Ethics is a side 'project' and so there are no vacancies for the foreseeable future. If a job becomes available, it will be mentioned here and on social media. But don't count on it!
