Please also read our privacy statement regarding personal information provided by you. We may change these terms from time to time without notice to you.

Our products are made by humans and not machines, small imperfections / differences in finish and colour can happen and are part of the charm of a handmade product. This part of the handmade process is what makes our products unique and should not be seen as a fault. They will never affect the overall aesthetic of the product and its ability for use as intended.
It is the customers or their agent’s responsibility to check that they have received the correct design and colour before altering the product or handing it to any third party for processing. Mistakes in labelling can happen. Once trimmed or handed onto a third party we cannot accept responsibility for any errors which occasionally do occur.
All orders are dealt with on an individual basis. We are unable to supply any goods on a sale or return basis and all orders are accepted on receipt of full payment by pro forma. All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available.
The majority of our items are handmade and while the colour matching and reproduction are a close representation, every run is individual and variations in actual goods may occur. We cannot accept any responsibility for these minor variations.
Returns cannot be accepted unless by prior agreement. All faults or damages must be reported within 7 days of receipt of delivery. Unauthorised returns will not be credited to the customer’s account.
