Kingstanding, Birmingham, B44 8PX t: 0121 382 9174

Payment Terms
Payment is required in full before we will dispatch your order. Payment must be made in British Pounds. All prices include VAT at 20%. We accept all major credit/debit cards. Payments are processed by WorldPay, part of The Royal Bank Of Scotland. 

Returns & Cancellations
You have the right to cancel your order prior to dispatch. You also have the right to return your rug if you don't like it. We ask that you first inform us by e-mail or post, follow the returns instructions that we send you and return the rug within 7 days of receipt. The rug should be immediately stored safely and be returned in completely unused condition. We will send you a return code and returns address. Write the return code on the outside of the packaging (this identified the item when it arrives), and then return the rug to us at your expense in unused condition and in the original undamaged packaging (or packaging of the same quality) for your refund. We recommend using an insured delivery service. Please note that carriage charges made for remote locations or special deliveries are not refundable. Custom made rugs and special order items may not be returned. 

Goods Damaged In Transit
Our rugs are made to very high standards, and we employ professional national carriers. Nevertheless, you must examine the package on arrival before signing for it. In the unlikely event that it has been damaged, do not sign for it. The courier will automatically return the consigment to us and we will arrange a replacement. You should also inform anyone accepting the delivery on your behalf of this requirement. Damage that occurs after a rug is received by a customer is not covered.

Faulty Goods
If a rug is faulty please contact us at once and within 7 days of receipt at most and we will arrange a refund or replacement as agreed. The rug must remain in unused condition. Please note that most of our rugs are hand crafted and that some variation is to be expected and can be part of the charm of handmade items. Due to differences in colour reproduction on different computer screens, and to personal interpretations of colour terms, we cannot accept colours varying from expectations as a fault. Rugs damaged in transit (see above) should not be accepted. 

Return carriage (weekday pickup) will be reimbursed if the rug is faulty. You must ensure that someone is availabe to meet the courier, as we only pay for one pick-up attempt. 

Complaints Procedure
We try to resolve all issues through discussion. However, if you feel you have a complaint that cannot be resolved over the phone, please put it in writing and send it to The Directors at our postal address. We will investigate and respond within 2 working days.
