FAQ

Where do you source your materials from?

I source from many places, almost everything is second hand/ recycled, so it tends to be a mix of charity shop finds, eBay, Depop and just taking any opportunities to get hold of interesting scraps and beads to reuse.

Can I commission a custom piece?

Yes email me with serious commission ideas, please be aware of my prices. I may not be interested/ not have time, but I always love to create pieces you will cherish and enjoy for years to come.

If a piece is sold out will it be on sale again at any point?

No, most pieces are 1of1 so cannot be recreated exactly. However, If you are interested in a specific piece feel free to contact us and we can discuss the potential of creating something similar.

Can I re-create your work?

While I appreciate that not everyone can afford my work, I would rather that it wasn't copied. Take inspiration and make something of your own. While in the past I've allowed people to re-create their own version of my pieces and tag me as inspiration, I now ask that you don't share your creation online as it encourages a culture of copying artists work. I do however sell my own patterns for certain items which everyone is welcome to purchase use as they please. In this case please do share/ tag me/ send me pictures of what you create, I love to see it.

 

Why is your work so expensive?

 

My prices are extremely under priced for the time and effort that goes into sourcing and fixing up second-hand materials, the making process and the hidden hours that have gone into perfecting my craft. Angel Brains only exists because of my lovely angels and I am so thankful for every order and bit of support. I really do spend every hour of my day working for Angel Brains and currently do not pay myself a wage.

Is it possible to cancel an order?

Yes, as long as you get into contact with us as soon as possible (ideally under 24 hours) so It has not been packaged or posted.

How long does shipping take?

I ship every Tuesday afternoon, order by 10pm on Monday to catch that weeks post. Once you receive a postage confirmation email it will be about 3-5 working days within the UK and 10-15 days international. More Information on the Shipping and returns page on the footer bar at the bottom of the screen. 

 

How do you make your patches?

Patches are screen printed by hand using silk screens. I hand screen print large amounts of designs onto large sheets of salvaged, scrap and second hand fabric then heat press the designs and cut them into individual patches ready to be applied to garments. All the patches are original designs.

 

Can I wash my garment normally or do I need to take special care?

All our patches are heat pressed and can be washed as normal, over time the patch will gradually start to fade but nothings drastic. If you want to reduce fading more then wash the garment inside out. If a piece is dyed, then we always make sure to re wash the piece before sale so no dye leaks when you come to wash it. We do however recommend that you don't wash a darker dyed piece (if it has been dyed it will be stated in the product description) with a light or white wash just as a precaution.
