Suitability of product

The images showing the colours on the website are as accurate as it is possible to be. However computer screens vary in resolution and the tones they display so you should therefore check with us and obtain a sample of the actual material if the colour or texture of the product is critical to your intended use. We may refuse to accept the return of a product because the colour or texture is not what you expect if the length of the material is too short to be reasonably restocked. We will not normally accept a return if the length is less than 2 metres.

Our liability shall in all cases be limited to the total value of any order placed.

We do not guarantee that this website will be compatible with your computer equipment.

We do not accept liability for any corruption or loss of data and similarly we will not be held liable for any other loss or damage of any kind caused to your computer equipment resulting from the use of this website.

Please note our genuine horn and mother of pearl buttons are natural products each with their own unique colour and markings.  The photographs on the website show multiple buttons in order to try and reflect natural variances.  However buttons sent may not exactly reflect the images on the website.

Digital Printing and Tolerances

Printed Lining Collection: Due to the evolving nature of technology in the digital printing process, changes in colour hues over time are inevitable and unavoidable. We cannot be held responsible for amendments or changes introduced by third party suppliers of dyes, chemistry or technology that are imposed on us and are therefore out of our control.  Please be advised that this may affect any repeat print requests over a period of time.

While every endeavour is made to accurately reproduce designs, there may be minor variations in colour because of a number of factors such as the natural characteristics of the materials used i.e. the nature of fabric dyes; and even the temperature/weather at the time of dyeing and finishing.
