returns, exchanges & cancellations
POJ Studio accepts returns of unused and undamaged products within 30 days of shipment.
In order to receive a full refund, all products must be returned in new, undamaged condition in original protective packaging.
While we do offer free international shipping for orders above USD $300 to you, we cannot offer free returns at this time. Therefore you will be responsible for the shipping charges associated with sending the item(s) back to us. Shipping fees are not eligible for a refund.
If you do return items, we'll apply the refund to the tender they were purchased with. If no record of sale is available and we choose to provide a refund, your personal identification will be required to process the return.
If a product is damaged during shipping, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 7 days upon arrival and send a detailed photo of the damage with the order number. We also offer repair for most of our products which could be an interesting option to consider instead of a return.
Please be aware that in all cases you are responsible for paying customs fees and for providing any and all documents required by customs in your country. If you refuse to pay those taxes, the package will be sent back to us. We will then refund you the amount of the order, after having withdrawn the shipping cost at actual rate that we have been charged by the carrier, and the shipping cost of the return of the package to us.
Any questions about the return process? Send us an email at email@example.com. We're always happy to help.

All of our products are made in small batches. To make sure the item you’d like to purchase is in stock, we recommend that you place your order before you return your original purchase. Then just follow our quick return process and you’ll be set.
As a reminder, you can return any new, undamaged items at any time but the shipping fees are not eligible for refund.
If your order has not shipped you can cancel your order. Once it has shipped we unfortunately are unable to change or cancel the order.
We take all credit cards as well as Paypal.
The import of a product from Japan may be subject to taxes and to custom fees in the country of delivery. Since we are a startup, we will not be able to cover these supplementary costs which will make them your responsibility.
We don’t store any of your payment information ourselves and everything is securely handled via Shopify, PayPal or the other payment services we offer.

We care about sustainability in every way. While we started the business to help our artisan partners to become sustainable and last for the next generations to come, we also deeply care about our environment. We source most materials locally and try to use natural materials whenever we can.
Pieces marked as "preorder" are going to be restocked. When pieces are marked as "sold out" we will not be restocking them anymore. In case of questions feel free to contact email@example.com.
We opened our first retail & workshop space in Kyoto, Japan in September 2022. We are looking forward to meeting you in person.
The reason we do what we do to help the artisans become sustainable and be able to continue on for the next generation. We are not just paying our partners fairly, everything we do is to sustain them and hopefully the next generation. Find out more on our "About" page.
Since we’re a small startup we really appreciate your help in making our site better. You can contact us at anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
