Products & stock
The item I'd like to purchase is out of stock. Will it come back in stock?
Please subscribe to the waitlist on the product page. You will be notified in case it comes back in stock. Please note our products are made from leftover fabrics, so the chance of it coming back in stock is relatively small. In some cases, we can make the same item in a different colour. If you are in love with a product which is out of stock, please subscribe to the waitlist or send an e-mail to email@example.com for more information about pre-ordering.
The item that I received slightly different than the photo on the website. How is this possible?
Many of our allover prints are designed by hand in our Atelier in Amsterdam. With craftsmanship comes uniqueness. We cannot guarantee that the print is placed exactly how it looks on the website. However, we can guarantee that each item is made with love and care in the highest quality standards.
Where is ILJA on sustainability?
We are taking steps, one-by-one, to reduce our environmental impact. We are constantly looking for ways within our supply chain to have less carbon footprint. First of all, we work with a 'no waste' mentality. Our garments are made from leftover fabrics from other designers’ factories. Therefore we produce limited editions only and so all our items are unique. Besides, the garment we use are made from bio-cotton and recycled polyester.
Where does ILJA manufacture its products?
ILJA manufactures its products in Lithuania.
