This is it friends!

We have started shipping your Markhor shoes, chappals, journals, laces and everything in between.

We can't change your shipping address once it's en route so if you need to update your shipping address now is the time.
Please email us at this new address: shipping@themarkhor.com

Once dispatched, you shall receive an email from DHL containing tracking information for your parcel. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your tracking number to register on the DHL site. Once up, your Markhor box will reach you within 3-4 business days.

One more thing:

Q: "As per your last update, weren’t you guys supposed to ship by May 15th?"

A: That’s right..

..when we originally launched our Kickstarter campaign, we planned to ship by April 2015. Some unforeseen leather production challenges got in our way, so we tried to get the shipping done by mid May. Where we failed again. Our original shipping plan was to get all of the shoes for North America and Europe first in a warehouse, because that was economical and that allowed us to offer free shipping to our backers from US.

Unfortunately, because of some complex freight/shipping documentation issues, it required us to wait for 17-20 more days to get the clearance for a large shipment which clearly wasn’t going to work for us.

So we decided to move fast and ship to you directly from Lahore (actually from Sidra’s living room, because our office is too small to store 500+ shoes) via DHL Express. Once dispatched, your parcel will be reaching at your door within 3-4 business days. Please note that it may take 24 hours for your tracking number to be trackable on DHL website.

You can also catch us on Twitter or What'sApp at 650-996-4219. Catch us if you want!!

We thank you for patience, trust and love. See you soon!!

Warmly,

Sidra, Waqas and team Markhor
