Pink and Ginger takes great pride in providing a fantastic delivery service for our customers, from the delivery times to the presentation.
When purchasing our 100% cashmere products from us you will receive a complimentary Pink and Ginger storage bag. It is not spoke of often, but your cashmere should be stored into a cotton bag with cedar balls to stop the moths enjoying the luxury of your cashmere product! The cotton bag will help to prolong the life of your cashmere product.
I will be creating a blog in the near future, with simple steps and advice to help you keep your cashmere products looking healthy for longer, so be sure to keep your eye out for our future blog posts.
Along with our cotton storage bag, you will also receive an envelope sealed with red wax. Inside you will find a thank you letter printed onto the finest paper, along with a returns slip to make returns ever so simple should you wish to do so. The best part about our returns policy is if you are a UK based customer you will receive a pre-paid tracked return label, meaning if you are not 100% satisfied with your product, you can return the item hassle free.
We really focused on making our delivery presentation and services as high quality as the products we create. That’s why we decided to use the wax seal. The history of the seal can be traced back to some of the earliest known civilisations, to where actual examples have been found from 3300 BC and 150 BC. The first seals were in fact made from clay and usually impressed using cylinders or rings. The usage of the wax seal did not take place until the Middle Ages where they were originally used by individuals such as bishops and monarchs to authenticate documents. By the 13th century the wax seal became more popular and was being used by all kinds of people in monasteries, guilds and even by common folk. Each seal would be unique to its owner, and was used instead of a signature due to the widespread illiteracy at that time. Wax seals were usually stamped directly onto a document or letter, but it was more common for them to be stamped separately, and fixed to the bottom of the document using a ribbon or strip of parchment. During this period the wax used was generally made using 1/3 resin and 2/3 beeswax, though in later years beeswax was completely omitted.
