FABRIC AVAILABILITY

In some instances fabric may become unavailable for certain styles in which case a substitute fabric is sourced and should a style not be available for purchase in the fabric advertised then images of a substitute fabric will be sent to the customer via e-mail. The composition, handle and weave will be as close to the original as possible however colours may vary slightly. Styles that may have a fabric subject to change are outlined in their product descriptions.

CUSTOMS & IMPORT CHARGES

Any customs or duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot tell you what the cost would be as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. We recommend contacting your local customs office to find out the current charges before you order so you are not surprised by charges you weren't expecting.
