Delivery & Returns

Christmas Delivery and Refund Arrangement 2021

We will be shutting the office and warehouse during the festive period from 24th Dec re-opening on 4th Jan. As a result, response times for orders in this period, and customer queries too will be longer than usual, but please be patient. We will be back on it again as soon as we return. We hope all of you have a great Christmas with your loved ones, and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

If you wish to return an item bought as a Christmas present, the time-frame to do this will be extended until February 1st. All other returns conditions still apply.
