PLEASE NOTE: The issuance of an order number or the receipt of a confirmation email does not serve as a guarantee that an order will be fulfilled. No order is final until you receive a "Your item has been shipped" confirmation email which means all charges have been accepted by your bank institution and your purchase is on the way.
Price fluctuation occurs primarily because Kukumari.com products are available direct from the artists and artisans and currency fluctuation may impact their price in dollars. These changes are typically very small -- however, in the case of large currency movements, the price swings can be noticeable. Another factor in price fluctuation is that artists have control over their pricing and can change their prices based on the supply and demand of their products.
