Due to the lock down conditions around the world and here in South Africa, our postage service has been interrupted.

Local Orders:

We are now in Level 3 Lockdown - we can post local orders via SA Post Office & via Postnet, either from Postnet to Postnet or from Postnet to your door.

International Orders:

Posting systems for international orders are once again functioning. Orders placed after the 27 Mar 2020 were finally collected by the couriers on Friday 05 June 2020.

Provided your countries are receiving orders, you should, under normal circumstances, receive your order within 5-6 weeks. There are, however, delays happening currently, probably due to Covid 19 protocols, and many orders are taking 9-10 weeks to arrive. We thank you for your patience.

We hope you and your families are safe and healthy where ever you are in the world.
