Himaymay (pronounced hee-mai-mai) is a Tagalog (Filipino) word meaning fiber/stripping into fibers, careful study/deliberation, grain, and peacefulness/quietude.
Hi! My name is Rufina Caluya and I create clothing by hand with knitting, crocheting, and weaving. I'm a wife to an awesome Hospice Music Therapist, mom to a super cutie but highly rambunctious toddler, and an avid learner of all things DIY and ready to make magic with fiber arts.
I believe in creating meaningful connections with small/local/indie businesses and empowering people. I use, purchase, support yarns and products that are handmade, hand dyed, sustainable, and ethical. This business strives to be a safe, open and inclusive space. Himaymay Creations does not tolerate exclusionary behavior.
Impact over Profit
Do you provide International delivery?
I currently only ship items within the United States and Canada.
What do you use for shipping and packing?
I believe in "Reduce. Reuse. Recycle". The package will arrive in a compostable shipping mailer that can either I reused, or a new mailer that you can use again to ship things to your loved ones, or dispose of in your home composter. My products are shipped with mailers from noissue.co and betterpackaging.com. It takes a great deal of research on my end to find a sustainable, affordable, and ethical means to ship and package my products. I do not endorse or do paid advertisements with these companies but I support and use any company who upholds the same values and beliefs that I have. Once your order is completed, I ship my items through USPS.
What is your returns policy?
I currently do not offer returns. I do post the details of each item especially the materials. Please check carefully to ensure you do not have any allergies to our knitwear before purchase. Details also include dimensions of each product. Please check size dimensions before purchase.
Business Location and Hours
Himaymay Creations is not a brick and mortar shop but I operate from Wood Village, OR.
I work on my knitted products and website everyday except weekends. Producing Fiber Arts can take serious strain on my hands so I make it a point to take scheduled breaks. I will receive orders and messages on weekends but will not respond until the next business day.
Available: Monday-Friday from 10am-6pm
