We reserve the right at any time following receipt of your order to accept, decline or limit your order for any reason, whether or not you have been charged. Fulfillment of all orders on this site is subject to availability and we are not obliged to accept any order we receive from you and reserve the right to reject or cancel a contract for any reason, without being liable of any damage or costs other than the repayment of any amount received from you in relation to the contract we cancelled.

All images of the Goods shown on our Website are provided for illustration purposes only. We have made every effort to display the colour of our products accurately, but we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of colours accurately reflects the colour of our products. A number of our products are handmade and created using natural materials, meaning no two pieces will be identical and the product image on our website may differ slightly from the product you receive.
We are not responsible for such discrepancies and reserve the right to amend the Goods if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements. Please note that we do not guarantee that all products on our Website are in stock or are available for purchase. We reserve the right to stop selling a product at any time and for any reason.

We take reasonable care to ensure the prices on the Website are adjusted and up-to-date, ensuring that there are no errors in our pricing. However, it is possible that some of the Products may be incorrectly priced.
As part of our dispatch procedures, we will check prices before accepting your order. In the case that the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount; and in the case that the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated at the time of your order, you will be notified in writing informing you of this error. You will then have the choice to continue with your purchase at a higher price or cancel your order. Your order will not be processed until we have received your confirmation.

All prices shown on the Website are in EUR and inclusive of VAT at the relevant rate. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT paid accordingly, with the exception that the Goods have been paid in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
