d) Once your rug is ready to be despatched a tracking e-mail will be sent to you allowing you to track your delivery status. We are reliant on our couriers fulfilling the delivery and therefore can not be held responsible for any error on their part. On the rare occasion that a delivery date is missed or a delivery error is made by our courier please contact us and we will do our best to resolve the problem.
e) If delivery is attempted and you are not available to sign for the goods our couriers may attempt to deliver your order to a neighbour.

f) If our couriers are not able to deliver your order they will leave a card through your door asking you to contact them to arrange re-delivery on a different weekday and will hold your package at your local delivery depot for 5 working days. You must contact the couriers within this period to re-arrange delivery. Faliure to do this may result in your order being returned.
4. OFFSHORE DELIVERY COSTS
When making your purchase you can select from a variety of offshore delivery options. The price we quote for of each of these options on our website is based on a maximum shipping weight of 15kg. If you make a purchase via our website and your total shipping weight is over 15kg we may contact you with a revised shipping quote. You are not obliged to accept this revised quote and may cancel your order with no penalties if you wish. You are most welcome to contact us for a shipping quote before placing your order if you envisage your total shipment weight exceeding this 15kg limit (i.e. if you are purchasing very large rugs or a reasonable quantity of smaller rugs).
5. OUT OF STOCK ITEMS
We do our very best to ensure that the vast majority of our rugs are in stock and ready to be despatched, however occasionally we may be out of stock of a certain design / size. If this is the case we will notify you by e-mail with an estimated delivery date for your chosen rug as well as option to choose an alternative rug or get a full refund. You may call our sales team on 01388 663738 if you would like to check to see if a certain rug is in stock before ordering.
6. PRODUCT REPRESENTATION
a) Please be aware that due to the nature of the manufacturing process on hand-made rugs there can be some slight colour, pattern and size variation (up to +/- 5%).
b). Pattern variation can occur in some rugs depending on the size you order, ie smaller size rugs can display less pattern; larger size rugs can display more pattern.
c) The inclusion/exclusion of an outer binding on machine made rugs can sometimes vary on each manufacturing batch.
d) During the photography process we do make every effort to accurately reproduce the appearance of each rug we sell. However circumstances such as lighting conditions and computer monitor display settings can affect how colours are displayed. The interpretation of colour descriptions is subjective and will vary from person to person - any description of colours on our products are our own colour interpretations, or that of the product manufacturer. We are unable to cover return costs due to any perceived variation of colour within our photography or colour descriptions.
e) The size of all products is displayed in centimetres as the accurate measurement; any feet and inch size shown are approximate conversions of the centimetres size.
