All packages are provided with an Track & Trace number. You can track your order using your tracking number and the link on your shipment confirmation email. Within the Netherlands we send small packages (those who fit through a mailbox) by PostNL and bigger packages by DHL. All international packages will be send by PostNL, DPD or DHL, please check your country by checkout for more detailed information.

All the packages (which do not fit through your mailbox) are insured up to €500.

We only deliver across the Netherlands and EU. If you wish to order from a different country, please send an email to info@a-la.nl.

Ordering & payment 

Since most of our products are unique pieces from all over the world, including the most inspiring stories, we truly believe in
personal contact with the people interested in it. This uniqueness does not only make a product special, but also difficult to sell online. All kinds of different colours, sizes, materials and shapes makes it extremely hard to give an idea of the characteristic value by only showing a few pictures. In case your new purchase arrives and is not as expected, but you are still interested in the product itself, please send an email to info@a-la.nl and we’ll do our very best to match your expectations.

Besides working with the automatically organized and safe iDEAL payment and ordering system, both mentioned arguments are the main reasons for À la to add our own and much more personal touch. After completing your order of choice, ordering and payment instructions will follow.

In case of placing an order that includes an unique À la item, we will contact you personally to find out which one of the unique products matches you the best e.g. size, colour and shape. Shipment might take a little longer, since we first have to get to know
each other, but of course we will process your unique purchase as soon as we’ve found out about your perfect match. 

The following steps will occur when placing an order 

1.  First, fill in your personal details (name, email, phone number, delivery address).

2.  In case of unique items with all different sizes and/or colours, you can fill in your personal desires and extra information e.g. size/colour/etc. We’ll try to do everything to satisfy your expectations. In this case we will send you an email as soon as your order and payment has been completed.

3.  To finalize your order, click on ‘VIEW CART” (or logo shopping car in menu balk). When your cart is complete and correct, please click on the ‘PROCEED TO CHECKOUT’ button to completely finalize your order. As soon as the order is being processed in our system and payment has been done, we will start processing your purchase. We pride ourselves in handling your orders quickly, with most unique or in-stock items dispatching within 48 hours of ordering; however, some orders may take a little longer to process. Should any unforeseen delay occur, you will be notified within 48 hours of placing your order.

4.  Payment must be made by iDEAL, PAYPAL, VISA or MASTERCARD. After this transfer has been processed, your parcel will be sent within 4 days to delivery address given in step no. 1.
