Faulty or Incorrect Items
Product quality is very important to us and each item is quality checked before being sent out to the customer.
Notification of faults must be given in writing accompanied with photographs (where applicable) to email@example.com. As part of the Consumer Rights Act you have 60 days from purchase to return a faulty item for a full refund or exchange. After the 60 day period, any faulty items are eligible for exchange only. All returns of defective products will be examined once they have been received by us and we will notify you if you are entitled to a refund or exchange via email within a reasonable period of time. We will not be able to issue exchanges against items with normal wear and tear, or heavy use. Nor does it apply to items that have been damaged by misuse, accident, or modification.
Please do not return damaged or faulty goods without contacting us first. We are unable to refund any postage costs incurred if you return damaged items without contacting us.
- If you are returning an item that has shrunk or the colour has run in the wash these will be eligible for exchange only for the exact same product as what was initially ordered.
All of our fabric is pre-washed to account for any shrinking during washing and colour fast technology is used to ensure the quality of your item is long lasting. We ask that all garments are washed on a delicate 30 degree machine wash, once the cycle has ended the garment should be immediately straightened out and left to dry naturally away from direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry.
