Shipping & Delivery
We offer worldwide shipping 🙂 YAY!
All orders are processed Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and Portuguese holidays. Delivery time is currently in 1-3 days from the moment the order leaves our Atelier (in Coimbra, Portugal, where we make every piece by hand), but please note that every item is made to order, so after you place your order, and before we ship it, we need some days to actually make the piece. That time may vary***.
Please note that the delivery can be delayed due to your country’s customs. Alameda Turquesa is not responsible for any unexpected delay occurring during the shipment by DHL.
DHL cannot delivery to P.O. boxes or to General Delivery/Poste Restante addresses. Alameda Turquesa is not responsible for packages once they have been scanned and delivered.
