Regretfully, we do not currently ship any of our products internationally.


With regret we are unable to insure delicate items such as ceramics, glass and other fragile materials including china, porcelain, clay and concrete. Unfortunately, all delivery couriers including Royal Mail do not allow compensation on these items to be claimed, should they be damaged in transit. We make every effort to carefully and securely wrap every order we post to our customers and label such items as fragile in the hope delivery agents will take the time and care to be mindful of delicate products. Due to this reason we regret we cannot offer a refund on the items mentioned above should they be damaged in transit. We are however more than happy to offer an exchange for the same product if we still have it in stock or product of the same value. In such cases where the product may not be available, a full refund will be given. This policy does not apply to jewellery, leather goods, clothing or any other homeware products that isn’t mentioned.
