Shipping and Return Policy

Checkered Lining is a small independent apparel company operated out of Hokkaido, Japan.  All orders ship from Hokkaido, Japan Monday-Friday. 


Shipping Time Frame:  If you are located in Japan, expect your order to arrive within a few days of shipment. If you are located outside of Japan, expect delivery within 2 to 4 weeks or 3 to 4 months depending on the shipping option you chose. (At the moment shipping options are limited due to covid restrictions.  I hope new options for mid-level prices and delivery times will be available soon). (It seems that many countries are changing their delivery policies often, and with unpredictable changes, that could affect delivery time. Also, due to the Covid pandemic, there are many international shipping delays.)


Shipping Method: I will be shipping via Japan Post to keep shipping costs as low as possible.  Also, in order to keep the costs as low as possible for you, I will be absorbing some of the shipping cost. (At the moment, there are also options to ship via Yamato Delivery.)


Return Policy: Because of the nature of small business, I will not be able to pay for any return shipping.  I will however, accept returns for a refund, but you will be responsible for the return shipping and original shipping cost.  If your item is delivered damaged, please take pictures of the damage and send to within two days of the delivery.  I will do my best to solve the situation.


Taxes/Customs Duties: Checkered Lining is not responsible for any taxes or customs duties that your country adds to your delivery.
