Delivery & Returns
***** Thank you so much for purchasing with us. We know there will be a lot of questions re returns in coming months so here is our info.
We expect to be inundated with late returns so we have to put strict terms in place.
Please read these terms before returning your item......
Orders delivered prior to March 10th 2020 - 10 working day returns policy (2 weeks) stands and returns will not be accepted at this stage.
Orders delivered from March 11th 2020 until further notice - returns will be accepted if received within 20 working days which gives lots of time to try on and return. Post offices are open with strict social distancing in place in every town so please ensure you send off your return well within the 20 working days so it arrives back to us on time. There could be postal delays.
As our shop is closed we are behind in processing returns and refunds during lockdown due to limited staff so please bear with us allowing at least 10 days for refunds to be processed.
Stay safe & well.

We take our own pictures where possible (an in natural lighting) and are happy to provide any further information that you may require regarding the colouring of an item. Printed fabrics may appear a little different, depending on where the print falls on the fabric and where it has been cut - this is normal and natural on printed fabrics and is not considered a fault or distortion.
We can offer an exchange of the same product in a different size or colour, or an item costing the same as your original purchase or if an item is less than your original purchase, subject to delivery charge.
