FAQ's / Inflatable Amnesty / Returns & Exchanges
I have an old inflatable paddling pool / swimming pool, some bananas and possibly a parrot- how do I send them to you?
Can I have an item made in specific materials / colours?
If it is an existing product on our website that you would like in different colours or materials then yep, its possible! [ a 25% surcharge will be added to the cost of the product]
Please email email@example.com for more info
How can I remove crinkles from my bag?
Please do remember- our fabrics are ALL salvaged- the odd mark and crinkle adds to the character and should be expected. If you would like to flatten the fabric of your bag, we recommend placing it face down, underneath some books/magazines on a flat surface, overnight. The remaining creases will drop out gradually during daily use
Refunds and Exchanges
UK returns are totally free, whatever the reason
You have 30 days from the receipt of your order, to return it for a refund or exchange
Unlike lots of companies, we are a sustainable brand, so we don’t burn our returns [who does that?!] We make sure they end up in the home that’s right for them- for that reason, Please ensure your items are returned to us unused and in a saleable condition
We process your returns once a week, [usually on a friday] so it can take 7-10 days after we receive the item to process your return
Obviously not everyone gets it right when it comes to gift giving [!] so we receive a higher than usual rate of returns in January, please bear with us, it may take a teeny bit longer to process your requests
**Anything ordered from the 1st November to 24th of December will have until 24th January to return for a refund, exchange or credit note **

Can I exchange an item for a different item?
Yes! Thats completely cool- if the new item is a different value, the difference will be made up with store credit
What if the item I request to exchange for is out of stock?
If we do not have the item in stock that you ask for in exchange, we will issue store credit with no expiry date, so you can choose something you may like at a later date [we do this, as all our items are unique, so we can’t guarantee that the item you liked, will still be available…]
Will my shipping fee be refunded?
If you paid for UK standard shipping on your original order and return the full order, we will refund the shipping cost for you.
If you upgraded to next day or Saturday delivery and return your full order, we will refund the standard shipping cost of £4.50 only.
Can I get a refund on a gift card?
Unfortunately not. They are one of the few things that are automated around here- so we have to generate another code after the unwanted/ unsuitable item has been returned to us
