With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS.   For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are notoriously wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments.    USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments.  If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost. 

Customer Comments

"The retablo of the bakers arrived and it is perfect. Nothing broke at all and it is really amazing. Everyone here loves it. We are all arguing over where to put it.
Thank you so so much for your careful packaging, it means the world to us.”
Theresa, Brooklyn, NY

Thank you for the wonderful job and the care taken to ensure that the retablo arrived in perfect condition!

I love it!

Le tableau m'a été livré par UPS il y a une heure.
Le colis était parfait et la peinture très bien protégée.
Je vous remercie, Tony , pour cette transaction faite dans la 
courtoisie et la confiance.
Je vais, maintenant, faire encadrer le tableau. 
Je suis très heureuse de cette acquisition
car la peinture haïtienne me touche!
J'ai vécu quelques années dans les Caraïbes...
Recevez, Tony, mes salutations très cordiales.

The woodcarving arrived moments ago. It came through PERFECTLY. I'm so delighted that I can hardly type. It is truly a masterwork of carving and painting. Dino is a genius and a true artist. Your packing job was most impressive. Thank you very, very much! I am ecstatic.

Order received and delighted as always... original and so well packed.  Look forward to doing business in future and someday I am going to treat myself to a religious retablo! Always wanted one and will look out for what you have new. 

Best wishes,

Just to say that the package arrived safely -  a bit delayed because of officialdom at this end. And my husband is thrilled with it. He worked at Muhimbili Hospital for 2 years  and I did a once a week clinic there as well. We had seen a very similar painting by Chilambo at a friend's house and that led to my internet search.

It is now at the framer's being restretched - the framer loves it too!

I do appreciate how available you were on email - so reassuring.


Thank you again

Best wishes


 Just wanted to let you know the retablo arrived yesterday in perfect

condition. It's a truly beautiful piece; the pictures did not do it justice

(no disrespect to your photographic skills). Thanks very much. And that was a

seriously awesome packing job!

Until next time,


Just to let you know that I have received the retablo in good order. Thanks you so much. I will draw much inspiration from it. How ever did you insert all of that tissue paper? Your prompts were beneficial.
Gene - California

The Flores arrived today.

I was impressed by the packing  — such care you provide!

And I was doubly impressed by the framing.  I hadn’t noticed the piece was floating and the frame itself is quite exquisite.

Thanks for everything.

My children just received their psikelekedana sculpture 'Refugiados' by Dino Jetha and are THRILLED!  I want to thank you for the careful shipment to California and for including the info on the artist, as I requested.   Once again, my experience with Indigo Arts has been deeply satisfying.

Wow, we all love the new barber sign, it is more fabulous in person!  It arrived Friday safely.  He has a place all picked out for it in his shop and we'll send a pic soon as it's installed.
Thank you very much.



Just a quick note to let you know the Flip-flop Elephant made its way to Camarillo in one piece.  Nice packing job, by the way…

Very unique piece and it will be enjoyed.

Take care and all the best…

It's beautiful, I am really pleased. My friend was here when it came and she could not wait to open it!   We have never seen anything like this in France.

I will be tempted another time, that's for sure!

Hi Tony, The shipment arrived safely. The Ghana barber sign is a very special piece!

The BE LIKE JESUS message sounds like an invite to have your hair set and permed

as in the image...   Thanks and all best, 
J-  Ohio



Just to let you know that both painting and certificate arrived well and on time. Thanks for your prompt and efficient service. Painting is already hung on the wall!

Best regards,



I get the pieces. Are very nice.

Hope that you are going to find more of this quality. Next year I'll buy some more probably.

Their art is maybe the most higher level of geometric art. A treasure of humanity.

Please, the figurative ones are less interesting (snakes etc...).  Because the figurative designs where made by man, but the male tradition, as far as I know was broken, so they are trying to recover...but. Female abstract designs are traditional.

F. from Trieste

The paintings are well arrived ! 

I am very happy they are both so beautiful !

Thank you so much Tony you are really a nice guy.

The best for you.

Dear Indigo Arts -

Your email for the "quarantine blues" cheered me immensely.
Happy to hear that you are doing well.

My brother, sister and I all have woodcuts by Jorge Borges that I found

daughter who lived in Philadelphia for four years.  There is a special 
spot in my heart for Philadelphia and Indigo Arts.

Hello again,Tony,

the hippo package a few days ago. I am totally delighted with this purchase.

It is the new STAR of my collection of global handmade kinetic toys.  

I was so lucky to find this and you, online.

I know the chances are very slim, but if you do come across any more, please let me know. 

I don't mind if they are second hand or a bit damaged, as I can repair them.

I wish you, the artisans and your business all the best in these very strange times.

C - New Zealand
