As the interpretation of colours, etc can vary from person to person, please be aware that any descriptions of rugs on our website are for guidance only. Please also be aware that due to the nature of the manufacturing process of our handmade rugs, there can be some slight colour, pattern and size variation.
If you are not satisfied with the appearance of a rug you receive for any reason, you may return it for a full refund under our normal returns policy. We are unable to accept responsibility or cover the return carriage costs should there be a variation within our images or descriptions. You are welcome to call or e-mail us before you make a purchase to get further information on a particular rug if you wish.

10. FAULTY GOODS/DELIVERY ERRORS
In the unlikely event that the goods delivered are not what you ordered or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity, you must notify us by email to email@example.com within 48 hours of receiving it otherwise you have no right to any of the remedies set out below.
If you notify us of a problem, we will then, at our option:
- Arrange a collection (Monday to Friday, between 8am and 6pm) if the wrong rug has been delivered in error. Following this, the correct rug will be dispatched. We will arrange a specific day with you for the collection to take place. The first collection attempt is free of charge, however any subsequent collections that have to be arranged will be charged at £19.99 per collection attempt.
- Make good any delivery shortages. All delivery shortages will be checked against our dispatch notes and shipping logs for verification.
If the rug has a manufacturing fault, a photograph should be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, within 48 hours of receiving it, in order to verify the fault. Following our inspection and providing we agree that a genuine manufacturing fault exists, we will arrange a collection (Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm) and we will provide you with a brand new replacement rug of the same design and size.
We will arrange a specific day with you for the collection to take place. The first collection attempt is free of charge, however any subsequent collections arranged will be charged at £19.99 per collection attempt. If a photograph is not supplied and, following inspection, a rug that we have collected is found not to be faulty, we reserve the right to charge the customer for all carriage costs and we may also levy an administration fee.
- Shedding - Shedding is a natural characteristic of a deep pile rug and is not deemed to be a fault. This is common on acrylic and wool rugs and should be taken into consideration when choosing a product/suitable rug for your home.
- Shading – A top quality cut pile rug can be subject to shading effects before or after use. This is not a manufacturing defect but is due to light reflectance as the pile yarn is flattened in different directions by normal traffic or pressure.
