  • Packaging may vary from that shown in website images
  • Weights and dimensions shown are approximate
  • Whilst we do our utmost to ensure colour accuracy, shades and tones cannot be guaranteed, the more so since individual monitors may alter image colouring to quite an extent: the same applies to texture and patterning where necessary
  • all products are subject to availability: despite our best efforts to constantly update the website stock listings, the website in fact functions separately from a retail shop environment and there may sometimes be a time lapse before we can accurately state stock levels

We aim to give you a secure and pleasurable online shopping experience, so we offer a full 14-day returns policy, which does not affect your statutory rights in any way. In order to return unwanted goods for refund or exchange, the following procedure must be followed:

You must inform us within 7 days of receipt, preferably by email, that you will be returning goods. Said goods must be in perfect condition, still unopened in their original packaging, and the carriage costs paid in full by you. It is wise to use recorded delivery in such cases to avoid misunderstandings at a later date.

Your statutory rights are not affected.


Upon receipt, all goods should be checked against your own order. You should not sign for acceptance of goods delivered that have been obviously damaged in transit, and ideally two or three clear, digital photographs should be taken of any damage, whether it be to the goods themselves or labels, boxes etc. If goods are damaged, incorrectly supplied or if simply want to return goods delivered, please inform us by phone or e-mail at the earliest opportunity, and not later than 7 days after delivery. Goods must be returned to us within 14 days of delivery. Please note that we are unable to accept the return of any damaged, incorrectly supplied or cancelled goods if we have not been informed within 7 days of delivering them.

Products should be returned in their original packaging, promptly at the customer cost. Where an item is part of a set, the whole set must be returned. Returns will be subject to a restocking fee of 25% if they are not received in their original condition for resale.
