Shop Policies

Our Products:

Our products are hand-made by Friendship Bridge clients. Each product is unique and may vary slightly in measurement and/or appearance because of the weaving process. Items made from re-purposed huipiles and cortes are unique and may vary from photos.


We charge shipping based on order size and items ordered*. Most orders are processed within two to four business days. Once your order ships from us, average delivery time for standard shipping is 3-5 business days. Large orders may take longer. Please make sure that the ship-to address on your order is correct. Manual address corrections due to errors will delay your package significantly and/or result in additional shipping charges.

*Additional charges apply to shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories, and international destinations – please contact orders@friendshipbridge.org for a rate quote.


We accept Credit Cards directly on our site and payments via PayPal.

Return exceptions:

Returns must be received within 30 days of the purchase date. Merchandise that has been worn, used, damaged, dirty or altered will not be accepted for return or exchange. No credit can be issued until we have inspected the returned item and it is found to be in new, unused, unlaundered condition (if applicable) with all original tags attached and original packaging and parts included. Refunds will be issued for the amount paid for the item. Original shipping charges will not be refunded.

If a customer returns any item for credit that received a discount or promotional savings, and the lower order total would not meet the original minimum qualifications for the discount, then the amount of the sale discount shall be deducted from the refund amount.

If You Are Returning a Gift

We are happy to exchange a gift within 30 days of purchase for another item of equal value from our store. Follow the Return instructions above. Returns for refund less shipping charges (or partial refund in the event an item of lesser value is requested as an exchange) are credited back to the original method of payment used for the original purchase.

International Returns

Please contact us before returning an item shipped internationally. You may contact us at orders@friendshipbridge.org.
