1.7 We only sell products that we believe to be the highest quality, with all of our stock being made by independent makers or small businesses. Due to this there is often slight quirks of difference in each product, whether the grain of wood varies from piece to piece or the shade of each glassware differs in colouration. These quirks are what makes our business special and we value the differences found in the process of making.

1.8 We photograph our products to give a true representation of the piece itself. It is possible that colours may vary ever so slightly to the ones you see on your screen, due to the constraints of digital reproduction on different web browsers, we cannot guarantee exact colour depiction.
