We are always updating our inventory with new styles and occasional may restock sold out items. If you are interested in purchasing an item that's currently unavailable, please contact us at afronalamakeda@gmail.com and we will advise you if an item will be restocked or discontinued. If the item will be restocked we'll provide you with the estimated time.

  1. I received my item and there seems to be a dark mark or stickiness on the fabric, what is this?

We apologize in the event that you may receive an item with an adhesive patch. Our fabrics come with manufacturer's stamps, which show their authenticity, and we work hard to remove them before cutting and sewing the piece. However, they occasionally cannot be completely removed without washing, so you may see the label mark on your item. They are not permanent and will come off.

  1. How do I care for my pieces?

Jewelry is delicate and should be stored in its respective packaging when not in use. Do not wash or submerge in water.

Any stains on the fabric should be removed gently with a damp cloth wet with warm soapy water.

Our clothes should be hand-washed only. Do not bleach. Iron on the wrong side.
