I ordered this item as a wedding present as it certainly ticked all the boxes in terms of being Fairtrade, recycled, ethnic and spiritual, which is what the couple asked for, I ordered it two weeks before the wedding, hoping it would arrive in time. In fact it took one week to "process" at Overstock.com before even being prepared for shipping, which wasted time and it ended up not arriving in time to give the gift at the wedding. When it arrived, I was really glad I'd had it delivered to my home and not directly to the couple, as it came with just a cardboard backing sheet, covered with a bit of torn plastic and unceremoniously shoved into an outer carton with no protective packaging. So it then flew half way around the world and it's no surprise that it arrived with a little damage (bent leaf). Luckily, this was easily bent back into shape. I would certainly love to buy this item for myself as it's beautiful, but I would be wary of ordering anything fragile from Overstock.com in the future unless they buck up their ideas on the packaging front. I'd also never order anything from them in a hurry as their processing seems to take an excessive amount of time.
