Until we get a regular flow of orders, we have opted for direct communication via email, where you place your order by sending us an email, including the item's URL and we send you our PayPal and bank account to choose for your payment.
We usually ship 3-5 days after receiving your payment.
European Union: 7 to 10 days
Elsewhere in Europe and in the United States: 2 - 3 weeks
We have yet to ship to other continents so we can update the shipping info here :)
We are a tiny project, so please be considerate that we can't afford returns at this moment. We try to take many pictures and display each item's exact measurements for you to have enough information to decide on an order.
The price on the items is calculated without tracking. If you would like a tracking number, you can request this in your email, and we will let you know the extra costs for sending a number-tracking parcel to your country. Parcel tracking shall be added if you live outside the European Union.
Some of our t-shirts are new plain cotton t-shirts and some are second-hand from various brands, so they are all different and unique. We try to take photos wearing them to give you an idea of how they fit. All of our t-shirts have detailed measurements on our website, so check these out before ordering.
Yes, we wash and inspect all t-shirts before printing them. All cucu t-shirts are 100% cotton, a natural material that lasts for a long time, and by recycling it, we produce a smaller carbon footprint.
Because it takes a long way to make each t-shirt. We make phone-calls to thrift shops, and roundabouts dowtown Athens to find plain 100% cotton t-shirts. We wash them, silkscreen them by hand, iron them to set the ink on the fabric, take photos, measure them, take notes, update the website, then cycle to post office to ship it your way. All these steps considered, we believe our prices are OK!
Machine washing up to 30 degrees is fine and tumble dry is okay. However washing with cold water and air drying is preferable for the life of your cucu towels and t-shirts. Moreover, t-shirts should be washed inside-out as are expected to be washed regularly. Ironing is also fine in temperatures specific to cotton.
The leather comes from left-over pieces from our local shoemaker store.
All our print-related material comes from local companies based in Greece. We get our screens photographed from here, silkscreen paint from here, and packing supplies from shops in the outskirts of Athens. Our zines are printed with our Brother laser printer, or at our local bookshop, and the paper varies from 100 to 160gr Fabriano, not coated. We bind the zines at home with waxed thread from here - they have fantastic colors.
T-shirts are sourced from small and thrift shops in Athens. Tea-towels are bought new from small local kitchen-ware shops.
Pine wood comes from local providers in Keratsini and Athens. For the clogs, the olive wood comes from the small village of Ermioni (east Peloponnese), we buy the pieces that are cut during the olives' pruning.
