When you order a blouson with us, we put a free and matching face mask into the inner pocket of your creation!
How long will it take?
4 weeks: From our workshop in Kibera to your doorstep is a long way and good stuff takes time. We try our best to deliver as quickly as possible, but it can take up to 4 weeks.
Which size is right for me?
That depends on whether you like it skinny, or loose. But here is a bit of guidance: It's unisex blousons. If you are used to buying male clothes, pick a size bigger when in doubt. In case you buy ladies sizes, take the same size you would go for in other shops.
In case, you don't find your perfect fit here: Just order any size and reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org, give us you chest/bust circumfence and the length from shoulder to where you want your blouson to reach, and we are good to go (be aware: if we customize your blousons measurements, we cannot take them back (check our returns policy)!
Will my blouson look exactly like on the image?
Every piece is unique: Every piece you order will look slightly different, and here is why:
the parts of the print fabrics we use for your creation always show a different section of the full cloth.
the ratio between jacket and pattern varies, depending on the size you choose.
Will the fabrics I chose still be available tomorrow?
Maybe not. We frequently have new fabrics on offer. A fabric you find today, might be gone tomorrow. Just like on Nairobi's markets! We want you to enjoy the variety. And if you fell in love with a particular one, make sure you get it, before others do.
Can I return a blouson?
Yes. You can return your blouson to receive a refund, exchange or credit - if you do so within 14 days from the date of delivery and the piece is in an unworn condition. Check our returns policy here.
Which materials are the lookslike avido blousons made from?
100% Cotton: All of it, the African print, the complementary fabric and the lining are made from cotton. We buy all the fabrics from the local markets in Nairobi, to support traders. We are constantly looking for opportunities to localize our sourcing beyond that.
Wash your blouson by it self for the first time, after that you can wash it with other colorful clothes at max. 30 °C.
Ironing works fine, don't overheat it though.
Use sensitive detergent to protect the colors.
Leave it hanging to dry it, don't use a tumble dryer.
