Online Returns Policy

There may be times when you will need to return an item purchased from us. Our Returns Policy is designed to assist you with your return. The benefits given by our Returns Policy are in addition to other rights and remedies you may have as a consumer under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).


If you wish to return any item(s) you have purchased, you can either return the item(s) via post to our store within 14 days from the date of delivery. Return postage costs will be at your expense, unless the item(s) returned is faulty. In this instance, postage will be incurred by Ishta Handicrafts.

The following fees and/or charges will not be reimbursed:

  • Processing or handling fee (if any)

  • Shipping costs are non-refundable in any case. If you have received your product as "FREE SHIPPING" a flat charge of $10.95 will be deducted for 1 kg parcel satchel and $14.95 for 2 kg parcel satchel and $18.95 for above 2 kg parcel.


We encourage you to return your parcel via registered or traceable postal services as all returned parcels remain the responsibility of the purchaser until received by Ishta Handicrafts.

Colour Discrepancies

Images on our site may appear different to what they appear in person. This can be for a number of reasons, colours will show up differently in all types of lighting, they can also appear different on different devices. In the case that you receive a product but the colour is not the same as that you were hoping for, we will gladly exchange the products but the postage costs will be at the expense of the customer, products also need to be returned in the same condition in which it left the warehouse.
