We are currently working with manufacturers in Japan, The United States of America, and Latvia.
Orders may be fulfilled by any of our manufacturing partners, including goods ordered for delivery in Japan being manufacturered in and shipped from the USA or Latvia
Where possible, we will always use the closest partner to ensure speedy delivery. However, due to capicity and other logistical reasons, we might need to use a further away manufacturing parter.
The price you pay for the goods and the cost shipping of those goods will remain the same.
Sometimes, it can take up to 10 business days for some products to be manufactured and ready to ship.
Standard shipping may take up to 14 days after manufacturing.
