Shipping and Returns


At BADAN, our small team works hard to hand-package and ship out your orders in a timely fashion. Most orders are fulfilled in a day, though our typical fulfillment timeline is 3-5 business days. Please note this is separate from shipping time. Once your order is processed, the shipping time varies based on the shipping method that is chosen. Please keep in mind that during holiday periods, this time can be a little longer.


BADAN ships internationally. All additional taxes, customs, and import duties are the responsibility of the customer. We do, however, do our best to minimize your costs upon arrival in your country. We have a 14-day return policy, which means you have 14 days after receiving your item to request a return.


We understand that sometimes things just don't work out! If this happens, we will be happy to help you initiate a return. To request one, you may contact us at Your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you instructions on how and where to send your package.

Please note we do not cover return shipping fees for non-damaged items, and funds take 2-3 business days to appear on the original payment method.


Hand-embroidered tatreez items or woven fabrics can be hand-washed or machine-washed cold using delicate settings and light laundry detergent. We then recommend air drying. This helps preserve the longevity of your piece and further aid in its preservation for years to come.

I sent this one to my mom as a gift and she absolutely loved it. Beautiful design and she was able to gure out the instructions even with minimal embroidery experience.

Perfect for beginners and non-beginners alike!

This kit is a delight in every way! It comes with everything you need with additional online resources. If you’ve never touched a needle in your life you’ll have a great time - the pattern key is super easy to read, there are plenty of tips and videos, and everything is very clear and straightforward. If you have embroidery/cross stitch experience, you will also have a great time - this beginner kit is a nice brain challenge while being deliciously meditative, and the design is beautiful!

The packaging deserves a review of its own - the kit comes in a SUPER cute resealable bag which I’ve been using to tote the whole project wherever I go.

Finally, I don’t know how I’ve lived my whole life without a needle minder. I never have to worry about losing my needle and it is shaped like a thobe which is such a special detail.

I can’t say enough nice things about this beautiful kit - many thanks to Badan Collective for sharing the art of Tatreez in a fun, accessible way!
