What kind of materials do you use?
I source for high quality materials and use old fashioned tools like bone folder, awl and wheat paste glue, among others, to bind each book. Threads are 100% wax linen thread that are dyed by hand, which differs from batch to batch because each dyeing process is limited to a small amount each time. Books are then bound by hand on wooden sewing frames, before completing it with finishing touches.
What kind of payment do you accept?
I accept both direct bank transfer and Paypal from residents of Malaysia. For international customers, I accept Paypal as a form of payment.
How long does it take to process my order?
For anything “Off the Shelf”, I make every effort to ship sold items within 1-3 days of purchase and receipt of payment. I ship Monday-Friday. If your item is “Made to Order”, your order will be shipped out when it is completed, which is usually between 7-14 business days, sometimes longer especially when it’s a large order or more complex bindings. You’ll be notified once it has been shipped out.
Do you take custom requests?
At the moment, I only accept orders for vintage hardcovers that have not been bound into books yet. Please check my listings for more information.
