Designs by Joanna Stanek handcrafts all products within two weeks.
Oftentimes, orders process faster than that, but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.


Made to Order vs. Pre-Made
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.

Both are handmade, but the pre-made is shipment ready, while the made-to-order products take two weeks to be created for you.

Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:




The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order.

Care for your new product(s) by:
*Treating your bag with fabric protector spray.
*Hand washing with cool to lukewarm water, or spot cleaning.
*Hanging or lying flat to air dry.

Your product(s) can be damaged if:
*Put in the dryer.
*Machine washed.
*Exposed to inclement weather without being treated with fabric protector spray.
