However, if it is not possible to source the item for you, we will inform you of the unavailable item and your payment for the item will not be processed.

7. When will I receive my order?

Shipping timelines are subject to the unique nature and craftsmanship of the piece, often in harmony with designers' local artisans. Some pieces are made to order and can take up to 3 weeks to complete, while other items are in stock and ready to ship within 48 hours.

Industrie Africa has partnered with DHL Express to ensure hassle-free global delivery covering 220 countries worldwide, within 3-5 business days of ship date. Orders are processed and fulfilled Monday to Friday between 9AM and 5PM East African Time. During this challenging time there may be some delays, however you will be able to track this closely using the DHL portal.

8. What is a ‘Pre-Order’ and when will it ship?

Pre-orders are a limited-time opportunity to purchase next season's look, before anyone else. It is a way to support African designers and their creative brilliance, and may also include pieces that may not be available anywhere else except on Industrie Africa.

The production and shipping times for each unique pre-order item will be detailed on its product page. We collect full payment at the time of purchase and the item will ship out within the given shipping window.

Refunds and returns on pre-order items will follow our standard terms:

  • Order cancellations are accepted until 7 days after payment
  • Returns may be initiated within 7 days of receipt

9. Where is my order shipping from?

We ship each item directly from the designer to your door, with each item individually packaged for you by their team. We ship internationally from 17 countries worldwide, and 14 of those countries in Africa. Please see shipping and delivery

10. Which destinations does Industrie Africa ship to?

We are proud to deliver orders in partnership with DHL Express, covering 220 countries worldwide. The cost of shipping will depend on where the designer's products are shipping from, and what their final destination may be.

11. I’ve ordered items from multiple brands, will I have to pay for multiple shipping costs?

We work with designers from all over the world. Items will be shipped from their country of operations and these might differ. That said, to avoid you paying multiple shipping costs, Industrie Africa has decided to offer you flat fee shipping rates if you purchase items from more than one designer, with a flat rate of $50 if your order is shipping from more than one region.

12. Am I able to track my order?

Once we have dispatched your order for delivery, you will receive a unique tracking number by email. Once in receipt of this tracking number you can check the status of your shipment.
