when will the colours be back in stock?

what about the other colours – will they be affected too?

to be honest: we do not know yet. however, we are in close dialogue with our supplier and will do our very best to keep you informed if other colours are affected


what about existing orders?

we are looking into existing orders; some will, unfortunately, be affected by this. we will keep you informed

why is this happening?

in short, what we experience now is the aftereffect of the pandemic


our supplier explains that due to the shortage of containers on the world market, there are massive delays and further delays ... in addition, they have experienced that container was not on the ship as promised, as their suppliers expected lower production volume due to the pandemic

moreover, the established routes in container traffic have been disrupted ... this has to do with the increased demands and the ever-changing restrictions because of the pandemic ... as a result, there are many traffic jams in front of many ports

furthermore, the shipping industry relies on the crew being replaced regularly; this has been working very poorly for a year because of the travel restrictions. the blockade of the suez canal in march is nothing compared to the disruption to supply chains caused by the lack of crew changes, reports the shopping association VDR

lastly, our supplier says that they think this situation could continue for quite a while for all parties involved

i have more questions – who should i contact?

please contact your local agent for more information about your specific situation
