Check transit time & cost
to your country. We offer worldwide delivery.
UK: BREXIT, VAT and COVID-19
For shipments to the UK, we currently recommend using Fedex or DHL. UPS seems to have more delays to the UK than other carriers.
Please also note changes regarding VAT and carrier service fees to UK: when entering a UK delivery address, prices in the Wildemasche shop are shown without German VAT (19%). But usually you are charged UK VAT (20%) by UK authorities when importing.
Although there is no customs tariff on scarves and sweaters from EU origin, carriers (DHL, UPS, Fedex) may charge a disbursement / handling fee for paying the VAT upfront for you. The charge seems to be 2% on total value, at least 12 GBP for orders over 135 GBP.
USA & CANADA: POST STANDARD & DHL
We currently do not offer Post Standard or DHL to the USA and CANADA because of very long transit times. We may offer these shipping options again when transit times are back on normal level.

How to get your order fast:
- CHECK YOUR EMAILS. Make sure you receive our emails, order confirmation etc, or we may not be able to start production. If there seems to be no email from us after your order or contact, also check email folders "UNKOWN" or "SPAM" and add us to your address book or whitelist.
- Give complete delivery address: Name as on the door/bell, correct postcode and street number, company name if delivered to a company.
- For express deliveries, fill out phone number field, so carrier can contact you if needed.
- If you have a deadline: enter it in the comment field when ordering, and choose shipping option accordingly.
Add up production time PLUS transit time. Desired delivery date and shipping option should make sense: the order will NOT be at your place in 12 days, when production takes 2 weeks plus the shipping option says "transit time at least 15 workdays".
If you need the order for a fixed date, always use UPS or Fedex. Post Standard and DHL are NOT time definite

In case your order does not appear in the order history, you probably haven't fully completed it. When logged in, check if there are still any items in the shopping cart, and fully complete checkout procedure.
Tracking your order
Check the confirmation email that the order has been sent out, or log in to your customer account. Go to "Order history", if the status of the order is "Shipped", you can click on it to track the order. Depending on delivery option, DHL or UPS shipment tracking will open in a new window.
Orders delivered with "Post Standard E" or "Post Standard W" are only trackable in some countries. For US customers, order is trackable as soon as it enters the US. So the status may be "Origin post is preparing shipment" for some time.
If the estimated transport time in business days is over and you have not received the order, please contact us.
German VAT / Local VAT (Value added tax)
German VAT is charged, unless you provide a valid EU VAT-ID. You can enter EU VAT-ID together with your address. Please make sure the number has no extra blank spaces or non-standard characters in it (e.g. "-"). This may render the number invalid and German VAT will be charged.
Worldwide deliveries / all other countries:
No German VAT is charged. The customs office of your country may levy the local VAT that applies to your country/state when importing the goods.
As long as you are not logged in to your customer account, prices in the shop are displayed including German VAT. If you provide a delivery address outside EU, or a valid EU VAT-ID number, prices are displayed without German VAT.
Customs tariffs and duties
For deliveries within European Union, no tariffs or customs charges apply.
For deliveries to all other countries:
Customs duties / charges may apply depending on your country. Please email and ask if you have questions regarding this.
Please note for single products, customs office of your country may not charge duties or your local VAT, e.g. if the value is below a minimum limit, or not checked by customs.
When ordering (or re-ordering) larger quantities, customs charges, duties or VAT might be charged. You either have to pay it COD cash on delivery, or you'll get an invoice from the carrier. For orders over 1000 Euro total value, we have to make a customs declaration.
