Starfish and Moss West Coast Collection towel ponchos are handmade to order. This is an intentional decision to ensure we don't contribute to overstock and over-production, which is standard practice for most in our industry. Slow fashion also sits in line with our ethos that good things (and good design) take time.


Meticulously crafted with care, each towel poncho is sewn by our team, and as such, orders can vary in production times. We always do our best to get your purchase to you as soon as humanly possible, usually about 5 working days from the time you place your order. Upon checkout, our customer service team will update you on the approximate production time for your order. Thank you for your patience!  


Starfish and Moss take special care to ensure your product arrives safely by following all the procedures of our courier providers. Once your order has been picked up and has left our warehouse, it is now in the hands of NZ Post and we have no control over the product's whereabouts at this point. If you need to follow up on your order, please use the tracking details and contact NZ Post directly.

Our goal is to dispatch your order as soon as possible. If, for whatever reason, there is a delay in production, dispatching or delivering your order, you will be notified immediately.

We have a flat rate of NZ$19 to the North Island, NZ$12 within the South Island, and NZ$6 for delivery within Otago. We are based in Queenstown so please allow 2-3 working days to be delivered once dispatched.


Once your order has been placed, you will receive an email with your track and trace number. A link will be included in the email so that you can follow your delivery as soon as it has been dispatched.


Sometimes an order is delayed in transit. If this occurs, and once we are aware of it, we will do our best to follow up with your delivery and get it to you as soon as possible.

Customs delays are rare however they do happen and these are unfortunately out of our control. If this does happen, the duty on the order will be payable by you as the importer, and is not payable by Starfish and Moss.
