Colours / Designs
Colours and designs shown on the web site are representative only and The Company offers no guarantee of precise colour or design match, due to the limitations of photography and conditions outwith The Company’s control such as reproduction of images on The Customer’s PC.
The historic nature of tartan means various weavers hold their own catalogues of designs and thread dyes. For this reason, it is perfectly normal for one weaver's version of a tartan to look different from another's. This applies to orders for Wool Plaid Tartan Ribbon where The Company advises The Customer to double-check the image shown against that shown on the Scottish Tartans Authority website or similar authorative source prior to ordering. Please note The Company guaranees to supply the cotrrect tartan although this, on very rare occasions, may differ from the image shown.
Manufacturing variations in colour, design, material, length, width and presentation are to be expected although the Company guarantees that no such variations will affect the quality of the product nor shall any variation in length or width contravene the Sale of Goods Act.
The Company reserves the right to change prices without notice and especially for non-UK customers, where a currency conversion is required. International exchange rates vary on a daily basis and the price charged may vary slightly from the price advertised due to Nochex, PayPal and Zen-Cart software offering different exchange rate calculations.
For example: a non-UK customer paying by Nochex accepts Nochex’s exchange rate as part of the terms and conditions of using Nochex. This exchange rate may be slightly different from that used to calculate the advertised product price.
Customers who wish Trade Prices should contact The Company direct with full business name, address and contact details. The Company will offer trade prices to bona fide trade customers and a separate set of Conditions applies. Trade customers can also order via the website and by entering a code at checkout will receive a further discount. Please note that due to limitations of the software, the price paid on-line will still be slightly higher than if ordering direct.
All prices include VAT where applicable. The Company's VAT registration number is shown on the customer receipt.
The products shown on this web site are also sold by The Company through a physical showroom, by mail-order and by other on-line methods.

The Company will attempt to notify The Customer and offer The Customer the option of a back-order or refund. The Customer is asked to note that orders are not accepted upon a “conditional” basis - The Company has the right to ship whichever parts of an order are available without The Customer having the right to cancel the rest of the order. The shipping costs of any back order(s) will be covered by The Company.
