  • Damaged or faulty items are required to be unused and in their original packaging. 
  • Our handmade Natural Fibre Rugs do not come with any warranty.
  • Our rugs are individually hand made and hand woven by fair trade cottage industry weavers/artists. Each piece is unique and as such they are subject to the following variations, which are not considered faults or defects:
  1. Size: Being a hand made article, the size can vary by +/-3% from the size ordered.
  2. Colour: Every effort is taken to ensure there is minimal colour variation, however, some variation can be expected.
  3. Fading: Placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight will cause them to fade. Charcoal colour products will fade in natural light/sunlight. Some colour may transfer on light coloured surfaces. Rotate your rug to minimise damage caused by natural light.
  4. Design & Construction: Minor variations may be evident, which is due to the fact that the product is a handmade item including line/weave thickness.
  5. Shading: Due to changes in pile and weave direction shading may occur and is a natural characteristic of carpets and rugs.
  6. Shedding: Our rugs are hand made from all natural fibres. Natural fibre rugs will initially shed loose fibers.This is to be expected. The removal of any loose fibres will be hastened by regular vacuuming using a good quality upright vacuum cleaner.
  7. Pilling can occur due to traffic, moving of furniture, vacuuming or other mechanical agitation. This can be trimmed with scissors.
  8. Pop ups: Due to the type of weaving, there will be short fibres popping up while the rug settles. This can be trimmed or pushed through.
  9. Fumigation smell: AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) works to protect Australia’s unique natural environment and economic assets from many pests and diseases found in other parts of the world. Common items of quarantine concern include: wooden items; rugs; carpets; skins; feathers; straw; paper; cardboard; etc. Treatments applied for biosecurity purposes are part of measures used in managing the risk of introduction of exotic pests and diseases. There can be a residual smell left after the fumigation treatment which will air itself out within a few weeks of opening the packaging if left in a well ventilated space.
