Handmade Disclaimer

Many of the products we offer are individually handmade, handcrafted or made of a natural material such as but not limited to wood, metal, stone, granite, marble, soap, wax. As a result, products will have subtle variations from one piece to the next, caused by variations in the material used.

The images, descriptions and measurements you will find on our site have been used to best portray the products we sell. We must advise that although we try our utmost to remain completely open and honest, the information due to the nature of our products cannot be 100% accurate. We like to celebrate the unique nature of each and every single product we offer. As well as the desirability that goes with the knowledge that you are buying a one-off, small batch or handcrafted item. However, if you do have any questions or queries regarding a specific product please feel free to get in touch with us.


6. Faulty Goods Guarantee

6.1 If there is a problem with the goods, please notify us by email or in writing providing details of the problem. In addition, where required/requested you must provide us with a digital photograph of the problem as this saves you having to return the goods for inspection. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights. Please see points 4.10 and 4.11 for time restrictions.

6.2 All goods are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty against faulty workmanship and materials, subject to the terms and conditions of that warranty.

Replacement goods will not be dispatched until either an indicative digital image is supplied by the customer, or the original goods have been returned and checked. The cost of returning goods to us is your responsibility. If the goods are not faulty, we will return them to you, however, you will be required to cover our reasonable postage costs.

6.5 Within an agreed time-scale we will replace defective goods free of charge, at our discretion, providing that you have returned to us any faulty goods upon request.

6.7 Where we replace faulty goods you are responsible for their disposal if they have not previously been returned to us.
