In compliance with the Distant Selling Regulations you will then be entitled to a full refund of the purchase price less our collection and return service fee.

When returning goods, you must ensure they are SATISFACTORILY WRAPPED IN STRONG WATERPROOF PACKING OR ORIGINAL DELIVERY PACKAGING.

No refund can be issued if goods are badly wrapped and are soiled or damaged when in transit.

We make every effort during the photography process to accurately reproduce the appearance of each rug we sell. However, circumstances outside of our control, such as computer monitor settings can sometimes affect how colours are displayed on your screen. Where possible, we recommend you view your chosen rug on more than one computer if you are unsure.

Colours can also be subjective and the interpretation of colours can vary from person to person. If you are not happy with the colour of a rug you receive from us you may return it for a refund under our normal 7 day returns policy. See above.

We will always do our upmost to make this exchange as easy as possible for our customers
