Who is Terra Persona?
Terra Persona was founded by Teresa Arendsee Johnson. The idea had been simmering while she completed her Master’s degree, and after graduation, the opportunity emerged to begin the company. For anyone who has looked down the microscope at rocks, the beauty of nature shines through as art. She is passionate about geology and creating unique products that can make a difference both by engaging scientific curiosity and creating sustainable and ethical products.
Is Terra Persona a company or a charity?
We are set up as an LLC, but we may change our corporate structure to a charitable one in the future. We donate at least 5% of profits to charitable foundations, programs, and scholarships focused on our mission.
What organizations do you support?
We are donating to multiple charities depending on the items being purchased or which organizations we are choosing to feature. For example, all profits from the purchase of Lapis Lazuli products are redirected to programs in Afghanistan directly supporting women.
Orders & Shipping
When will my order ship?
Orders for apparel and accessories are all custom made when ordered and take approximately 2-15 business days depending on the item. If your order includes multiple apparel/accessory items, the entire order will be shipped together at the longest estimated time frame.
How long does shipping take?
Orders for USA customers normally ship within 3-8 days and are shipped by USPS. You will receive a confirmation email with the tracking code for your order for USA orders only.
Orders for Canadian customers normally ship within 3-8 business days. For printed products, shipping to Eastern Provinces takes about 3-4 business days and shipping to Western provinces can take 4-7 business days.
International orders generally take 10-15 business days but may be delayed by the customs of your country. International orders may be subject to customs fees or duties of your country. Unfortunately, Terra Persona does not cover these fees so please contact us if you have concerns regarding your order. International orders will not have a tracking number due to the fact that they are untraceable once they leave the USA.
What if I want to rush my order?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide rush processing or shipping for any items at this time. We do offer a “gift alert” option for the times you need something sooner.
