Damaged Goods / Parcels

Keep ALL the packaging, as this will be required for any claims against couriers for damaged/missing items. In the event of damaged items, you must contact our customer service team on 01756 791670, within 3 days. Any notification after this date will not be considered.

Where the courier company establishes that the delivery has been made, we would then need to adhere to their claim procedure. This will require the customer to complete a Missing Parcel claim form which will be provided directly from the couriers.
Unfortunately, we cannot pursue any claims until all appropriate forms have been returned back to them.
Clearance / Sale Section
The reductions shown are reductions from the original marked price charged on the website.
We also supply a recommended sale price as guidance on the normal selling price. Occasionally these prices may have been applied more than six months ago.

All promotional offers must be returned in their entirety.
Fabric & Embroidery
Many of our items are hand embroidered and therefore fragile in their usage. These garments should be worn with care.
A garment may have variations in patterns due to individual dyeing methods.
Please ensure that the first wash is ‘Dry Clean’ only, heavy embroidered items can only be Dry Cleaned.
Casual items should be washed separately in cold water and thoroughly rinsed (do not leave to soak).
Please note that due to hand dyeing methods used the colours are not guaranteed. We cannot be liable for any damage to your garments due to not complying with the washing instructions given.
All clothing with embossed or rubber prints should be reverse ironed.
Any displacements of prints, sequin, beading, or embroidery cannot be deemed to be a defect in the garment but are caused by the very nature of the work. Extra beading might be supplied. In these cases, postage cannot be claimed in refunds.
Outfits may have a smell of paraffin which is due to the process used to dry clean garments after embroidery. This smell will evaporate once the garment has been removed from the packing.
Specially commissioned items can only be cancelled within 5 days of placing the order. We cannot offer you a refund or cancellation after this period of time. Your statutory rights are not affected.
In addition to the Terms and Conditions which are set out above the following also apply solely to European/International orders.
All orders are shipped from the UK and customers from outside the European Union will be liable for any import duty or other taxes, fees and charges that are applied by customs or other authorities in the country of receipt. If you are unsure about whether these duties, taxes and charges might apply to your order, you should contact your local tax or customs authorities, prior to placing your order. Charges are based on the contents of the order. We cannot accept any responsibility for any delay or failure in the product reaching you due to any customs, legal or regulatory restrictions. We may at our discretion refuse to process an order for any product if we believe that delivery may be subject to any restriction in the destination country
We charge you for your order in Pounds Sterling, and payment can be made by any of the methods indicated on our website. The actual price charged to overseas customers will be subject to the exchange rate applied by the customer’s credit or Debit Card Company, who may also charge an additional administration fee.
The price displayed for goods/services remains the same for all customers regardless of the country of delivery. For deliveries to the EU, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment and will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU (including the Channel Islands and the Canary Islands). Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, will vary for each customer.
A delivery charge will be applied during the checkout, please view our International Delivery section for more information on prices and times.
Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive various notifications from the courier either by email or SMS, to keep you informed about your forthcoming delivery. If you do not hear anything or still don’t have your order after 10 working days have passed, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Failed deliveries as a result of the incorrect address being provided or failure to collect the parcel from the designated location will result in the parcel being returned to us. A refund will then be issued back to the customer on receipt, excluding the delivery charge. Any further re-delivery attempts will require an additional payment of the relevant postage charge. We are unable to offer a free return service; therefore, customers are requested to cover all return postage costs. Returns should be sent to East End, 3 Victoria Square, Skipton, North Yorkshire BD23 1JF
If you are an EU customer in the European Union, you have the right to cancel your contract within 14 calendar days from the day after the date you received your order. This right does not apply to items that have been sealed for hygiene reasons (beauty products, swimwear, pierced jewellery, etc.) if the seal has been broken. You will be responsible for the cost of returning a cancelled order to us.
