Terms and Conditions
Placing your Order:
You can place your order in several ways - through our online ordering system, by phone, email or post. We will make every effort to ensure that all of these methods are fully operational at all times, but we cannot be held responsible for delays or losses caused by failures of any of the above methods.
Orders for Silk Bedding:
It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the dimensions of the bed are checked before ordering goods. Each page on our site shows standard sizes and dimensions. We are not responsible for additional costs accrued to the customer by incorrect ordering. Please take care.
Custom/Made to Order Products:
When you order custom sizes from us we are completely reliant on the correct measurements supplied by you. Custom made items are non-returnable, except for faulty manufacture but please see our returns policy.
Cancellation of stock items can be made for a full refund providing the goods have not already been shipped. Once shipped our returns policy applies.
For custom made items, cancellation must be made within 48hrs of placing the order.
Any cancellation made after the 48 hour grace period will not be eligible for a refund as manufacturing of your item will have been commenced.
Cancellation of an order for bespoke products is not possible once the order has been agreed.
Delivery, Shipping and Handling:
For all information on delivery time and prices please see our Available Shipping Services page.
For nearly all deliveries we use outside courier services. It is your responsibility to ensure that correct delivery details, including a valid postcode or zip-code, have been entered. We will not and cannot be held responsible for delays or lost orders, caused as a direct result of user input error on your part. Packages without a valid postcode or zip-code normally cannot be dispatched. Please note: we also reserve the right to only deliver to the billing address.
We shall not be liable to you or be deemed in breach of this Agreement by you for any delays in delivery beyond our reasonable control (for example lost delivery consignments). We will however try to rectify any problems as quickly as possible.
Please ensure that all the details that you give us are correct, so that we can carry out our obligation to you effectively. If you need something urgently, then please email us as there usually is some way we can help. Dependant on the method of shipping a tracking number may or may not be available.

We deliver worldwide, though we reserve the right to refuse delivery into regions deemed unsafe or unreliable due to political or other reasons.
Goods returned to us because they were unable to be delivered will incur an additional delivery charge, equivalent to the actual cost of delivery. If goods are returned to us after attempted delivery and we are unable to make contact with you, after a reasonable period of time, for whatever reason, or you decide to cancel your order, at this stage, then our returns policy applies.
Please note that some items carry a slightly higher shipping charge due to their extra weight, which you will be informed about before checkout.
