Returns, Exchange & Refunds
All orders are accepted on the basis that the Customer has received a sample/cutting of the product before placing their final order. We cannot accept returned goods or cancelled orders once the order has been dispatched from the warehouse.


Having received your order, please check you have received the correct design/colour and that all the rolls / lengths have the same batch number. [see front label. After hanging 2 lengths, check for shading, wallpaper printing faults, and that the wallpaper is hung the correct way up. If in doubt, STOP.
No claims will be accepted for more than one roll/length and any claim is strictly limited to the replacement of faulty wallpaper. In the event of a fault please send a sample of the wallpaper with the label – it should not be necessary to return all the faulty wallpaper. If the wallpaper is defective in any way or has a fault, a full replacement or refund will be made at no charge.
Our machine printed wallpapers are produced in small batches and are, therefore, deemed bespoke items. As such, we will only accept returns on 5 rolls [of each design and colourway] or more, which will incur a 25% handling charge.
Hand silk screen printed wallpapers are printed in small runs and sold by the metre, cut to order and therefore, a bespoke item. This is a non refunable item.
