Sales Terms

Terms and Conditions of Sale

All our products are produced in compliance with Fair Trade practices and no children are used in any part of the production process.

1. Samples
We can make samples for any style or design. All costs associated with making samples are borne by the buyer, including courier charges. Sample requests can be placed by mail, fax or email. Please include drawings and photographs, where possible, as this will help to reduce any errors.
2. Knitwear
a. All our knitwear is hand knitted. We use 100% pure wool from New Zealand, 100% pure cotton from India, 100% banana yarn and 100% pure silk from Nepal. The wool and silk are hand dyed using Swiss-made, AZO-free colour-fast dyes. The cotton and banana yarn are hand dyed using German-made, AZO-free colour-fast dyes.
b. Whilst making every attempt to reproduce colours exactly, the hand-dying process sometimes produces slight variations in shades.
3. Carpets
a. All our carpets are hand woven using 100% pure Tibetan wool. All dyes are AZO-free, Swiss-made colour fast.
b. All carpets carry labels as required by the Government of Nepal and our international clients.
c. Due to the hand-made production process, there are slight variations in both colour and size. However, such differences only enhance the aesthetic and unique appeal of the final product.
d. Any size of carpet can be made, up to 15 x 4 metres (50 x 12.5 feet).
e. We can make your own custom-designed carpets, using your colour selection. We charge extra for this service, depending on the carpet design and size. Please contact us for more details.

To comply with the export rules of the Government of Nepal, proof of full payment must be presented to the customs authorities before export clearance is granted.
