General Information

All our products are hand crafted, often using natural materials and as such, there may be slight variations and imperfections to each product. We feel this simply adds to the uniqueness and individuality of each item we produce.

Every effort has been made to photograph and portray items accurately.

All sizes given are approximate and in centimetres however, slight variations in size and colour may occur due to the handmade nature of some products.

All products are subject to availability and we reserve the right to withdraw items from sale at any time. Prices may be subject to change without notice.

Whilst we try to make and hold a sufficient amount of stock, due to the handmade nature of these products, please be aware that some items may take 7-10 days to be dispatched, especially in the case of personalised or custom-made orders.

Should you require an item urgently or with a specific date in mind please contact us and we will do our best to help.

We take time and care to make each individual item and want them to be loved by you for many years to come. To help keep your hand painted products in perfect condition we advise you handle them with care to prevent marks and scratches, dust with a soft dry cloth, and do not use damp cloths or cleaning products.
