HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
When you purchase Products from our Website, and you have pressed the “COMPLETE ORDER” button we shall confirm your Order via email and assign you with an order number via email to confirm your purchase.
This email is NOT an acceptance of your Order, just a confirmation that we have received it (“Order Confirmation”) The Order Confirmation will confirm the following: a description of the Products ordered; the total price of the goods; the applicable delivery charges.
The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the “Dispatch Confirmation”. The Dispatch Confirmation is the email that we send to you when we have accepted your Order and it is ready to be dispatched to you unless we have been unable to fulfil your Order or if you have cancelled the Order beforehand.
Please quote the order number in all subsequent correspondence with us.
If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date or because of an error in the price on our site, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS
We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the top of this page to see when these Terms were last updated.
Every time you order Products from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.
We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect the following circumstances:
– Changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
– Due to any unforeseen circumstances affecting the manufacturing process.
– 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. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or just the Products you have yet to receive.
YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below. 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. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any bespoke or customised goods which have been customised in accordance with your specific request.
Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, 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 below:
Your legal right to cancel an Order starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation and the end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product. If your Order consists of multiple products, the end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered.
To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can also contact our team by email. If you are emailing us please include details of your order to help us to identify it and your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email.
If you cancel your Contract we will:
Refund you the price you paid for the Products, minus the cost of delivery to you. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. A full refund will only be accepted providing the product is in the same unworn condition that it was received in, including all original packaging including any seals or protective film/wrapping.
Make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
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:
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, 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 section or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
All product costs are charged in the currency shown at checkout.
We will contact you via email when your order has been dispatched and this email will have a tracking code so you can monitor the progress of your delivery. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control.

PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable/if stated) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order.
We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

When we refer, in these Terms, to “in writing”, this will include email.
As a consumer you may contact our team as described at the start of these Terms.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you by updating our website.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However if you are a consumer and you have purchased a Product as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of our warranty to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.
This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise. However, if you are a consumer, the recipient of your gift of a Product will have the benefit of our warranty but we and you will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
As a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
