Privacy

 

We will treat all your personal data in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We will keep it on a secure server and we will fully comply with all applicable privacy regulations and consumer legislation.

If you'd like to read more on how and where we collect or how we use your personal data, please see our Privacy Policy.

Our contract with you

Our acceptance of your order will take place when we despatch it to you, at which point we will send you a despatch confirmation email and a contract will come into existence between you and us. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

Our products

The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, measurements indicated on our website for our handmade products have a 10% tolerance.

The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure on our website or by contacting us.

 

If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

Delivery of the products

 

The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot. If you do not collect the products as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.

A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us.

We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may end the contract. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Refunds and returns

When you buy from the Website, you are entitled to cancel the contract no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods. Your right to cancel the contract does not apply to goods that are made to measure or are made to your specification, that have been clearly personalised, or which cannot be returned for hygiene reasons. This does not affect your statutory rights if goods are faulty or not as described.

If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation, 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. You can cancel by email or through the Contact form on our Website.

 

If you decide to 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.

 

Please see our Returns Policy for further details.

International delivery

Products delivered to international destinations outside of the UK may be subject to taxes, fees, customs duty, levies or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities. The recipient of your order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the products, and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges that may be levied outside the UK. The recipient of the products, not the person placing the order, will typically receive a separate request for payment of these charges when the goods arrive in the country of destination. If you are ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they are aware that they will be responsible for these additional charges.

Please note that in some countries, such as the USA and Canada, the person ordering products may receive a request for payment of these charges, in which case you will be responsible for paying these additional charges. Payment by you or the recipient (as applicable) must be received by the relevant customs authority before delivery of the products will be made.

 

Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, so we are unable to offer any assistance on these processes. We advise that you check any customs formalities and the import charges applicable before ordering products to be delivered there. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with information which we hold which relates to the product or order which you may need in order to arrange customs clearance.

You (or the recipient of the products if different) will be the importer for all international deliveries of the products. Therefore, before placing an order, it’s your responsibility to check that any products ordered comply with country, state and/or federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your order.

You agree that we will act on your behalf as exporter of the products and will complete export declarations in our own name on your behalf.

If an order is placed and restrictions that we were not aware of at the time the order was made are applied by the

customs authority of the destination country, then we will cancel the order and return payment to you.

Where possible, we or our subcontractors, will carry out all customs formalities on behalf of the recipient of the products. We or our subcontractors, will request payment for these charges from the recipient of the products in a separate invoice. We may also request information from you in relation to customs formalities. You must respond to any request for information within 5 days of the request, or the order will be cancelled and the products returned to us.

If the recipient wishes to return the product, they must request a refund of the customs duties and tax directly with their local customs office and must present proof of return.

suffered or incurred by that party arising out of or in connection with the provisions of any matter under these terms and conditions.
