You can pay your purchases online by credit card (Visa, Eurocard, Mastercard) via the Stripe secure payment system. You can also pay for your purchases via Paypal.

Q: Is online payment secure?

Yes, we do everything necessary to ensure the security and confidentiality of data transmitted online. Online payment by card uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. The information transmitted is encrypted by software and cannot be read during transport on the network. The client notices that the transmission is encrypted and secure as soon as the padlock symbol appears in the browser. Moreover, when the Customer’s bank details (card number, validity date and cryptogram) are transferred, the URL address becomes an https URL (the “s” indicating security) and no longer an http address.

The products will be shipped within 24-48 hours after validation of the order. This period is estimated and may exceptionally be extended during periods of high activity, such as Christmas or during sales.

OUR PRODUCTS


Q: Why are your soft toys made of baby alpaca wool?

Incredibly soft, light and resistant, baby alpaca wool is one of the most suitable fibres for making accessories and clothing for babies and newborns. Because it does not contain lanolin, alpaca wool is hypoallergenic and does not irritate the skin. It naturally repels water and has antibacterial properties, which allow the cuddly toy to stay healthy and clean longer.

Q: Does baby alpaca wool come from alpaca babies?

Contrary to what one might think, the name “baby alpaca” does not indicate that the wool was taken from small alpacas. It designates the fineness category of the fibre. Baby alpaca wool, finer than alpaca wool, is a fibre known for its quality, softness and extraordinary resistance.

Q: What care tips for my baby alpaca soft toys ?

You can machine wash your blanket at 30°C, on wool or delicate cycle. However, we advise you to wash it as often as possible by hand, in cold water, with a mild detergent, such as baby shampoo. Soak for a few minutes, rub gently then rinse. Carefully flush away excess water before letting it dry flat in the open air on a dry towel.

Q: Where are Main Sauvage soft toys made?

All our soft toys are hand knitted and embroidered in Bolivia. There, we collaborate with a fair workshop that employs women from the region who can neither read nor write and ensures them good working conditions and a fair income. This solidarity-based economy contributes to improving the living conditions of families and ensuring the schooling of children.

Q: Isn’t baby alpaca too fragile and delicate a material for a child?

Alpaca is recognized around the world as one of the strongest and most durable natural fibres over time. The incredible properties of this material and the solidity with which the different parts are sewn make our blankets very resistant to daily stresses.

Q: Are Main sauvage cuddly toys safe and healthy for my baby?

Absolutely. All our products have been tested in an independent laboratory and comply with European toy safety standards EN71.1, EN71.2 and EN71.3.
