Terms & conditions
Terms and Conditions
Please read through these terms and conditions carefully before placing your order. By using this website and/or placing an order you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below. 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. Changes will apply to any subsequent orders received. Once your order has entered our dispatching process, we will not be able to make any changes.
All orders are dealt with on an individual basis. For trade customers, we are unable to supply any goods on a sale or return basis. We accept Visa and MasterCard.
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 reproduction is a close representation, every piece is individual and variations in actual goods may occur. We cannot accept any responsibility for these variations. Our fabrics are made from natural products and may thus have natural characteristics such as slubs and other irregularities in the yarns which are not weaving faults and therefore not considered faults by us as a company. All of our pottery is dishwasher and microwave safe, however for larger pieces of pottery we recommend washing by hand.
Cancelling an order
You have the right to cancel your contract, provided that you exercise
your right no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods
Your right to return products does not apply to goods made to your
specification, that have been clearly personalised or which by reason of their
nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.
If you wish to cancel, you are obliged to retain possession of the goods
and take reasonable care of them.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to
cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name,
geographical address, details of the order you wish to cancel and, where
available, your phone number and email address.
If you cancel, you should return the goods to us at your cost within 14
days of such cancellation and we will reimburse to you (by the method used to
pay for the original transaction) the amount in relation to goods to which
cancellation rights apply. This includes the cost of delivery (except for the
supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our
standard and least expensive method of delivery.)
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any
goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We
will make the reimbursement no later than 14 days after the day we receive back
from you any goods supplied.
You can cancel by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone 01672 521 256
