5.2           After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 5.3.

If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.


6.1           We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the top of this page to see when these Terms were last updated and which Terms (if any) were changed.

6.3           We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect the following circumstances:

(a)         changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

(b)        changes in the way that our business operates as and where we roll out new Products, goods or services (if and when applicable).

6.4           If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.


7.1           You have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 7.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.

7.2           Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:

Your Contract

Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).

End of the cancellation period

The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.

Example: if we provide you with an Order Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

7.3           To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form at the end of these Terms on our website. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation.

7.4           You can also e-mail us at When you are e-mailing us please include details of your order to help us identify it. Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail letter to us. If you cancel your Contract we will:

(a)         refund you the price you paid for the Products less any sum reasonable deductible to reflect any loss or damage to the Product as caused by you;

(b)        refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer;

(c)         make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:

(i)          if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you,14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.  For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 7.5;

(ii)         if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you,14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

7.5           If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 7 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.

7.6           We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:

(a)         then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract using a reputable courier.

(b)        unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 7.4), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us using a reputable courier. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by courier, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.

7.7           We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. You have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 7 or anything else in these Terms.

8.              DELIVERY

8.1           We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. Because of the bespoke nature of the Products, which are tailor made following each delivery, delivery will take place within 6 months after the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 14 for our responsibilities when this happens.

8.2           If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery. If more than one attempt to deliver needs to be made, we reserve the right to levy an additional delivery charge.

8.3           Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.

8.4           You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

8.5           If we miss the 90 days delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:

(a)         we have refused to deliver the Products;

(b)        delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or

(c)         you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

8.6           If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 8.5, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.

8.7           If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 8.5 or clause 8.6, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
