1. Product Specifications
1.1 All our furniture is made from quality natural wood and accordingly appearances may vary. So you can be certain you are cleaning and caring for your product in the correct way we would advise you to read the care instructions that are included with your furniture as soon as you accept delivery and to contact us if you require further information before you carry out any furniture care. Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you are purchasing our furniture you are buying handmade furniture where varying degrees of distressing is generally applied. This is very much intended and makes each piece totally individual as desired by the craftsmen. We sell only genuine rustic designs with varying degrees of distressing from piece to piece; this may involve wood splits, wood filling, knots, purpose distress/scratch marks, antiquing etc etc. Certain degrees of filler will be used on oak furniture this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our Indian items are usually of a very rustic nature and a heavy distressing is usually applied, this may appear as a dulling or rubbing effect to the waxed finish, knotty and grainy woods are used, this is as intended by the supplier.
1.2 Leather products are made from quality natural leather and accordingly they may not be uniform in colour or texture. Only the finest hides are selected but they will show natural marks and scars on the hide.
1.3 The majority of our products are sold fully assembled, however on occasions certain pieces will need minimal assembly, this has been deemed fit to protect the item in carriage. All items needing assembly will have instructions included.

However we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown.

Similarly natural wood colour can vary from tree to tree and an exact colour match for solid wood products can not be guaranteed.
