Using a pre-order system is a sustainable way to avoid wasting products and materials by releasing limited runs of products in drops, acting against fast fashion as well as helping you secure your desired item before it's sold out. Pre-order means you have ordered before the product is ready to be dispatched. First the fabric needs to be made and then the item, this process takes around 8-10 weeks. We collect 100% of funds upon checkout for pre-order. If you have any questions or need assistance with a pre-order please contact our customer service team at info@monchatelain.com.
