Returns & Shipping


You have 14 days to notify us with a further16 days from the date of receipt to return the set. (30 days in total) 

If you've had a change of heart and wish to return your set for a refund or exchange, kindly follow the guidelines provided below.


Your set must be in pristine, unused condition and must be returned with all of its original packaging, including the outer brown card carton. In case the outer carton is missing, it's essential to utilize a suitable replacement to ensure the safe transportation of the product.

Remember to include:

Don't forget to enclose your name, address, phone number, and preferably the order number as well. As long as we have some means of identifying the order as originating from you, we can process your refund smoothly. Including a copy of your packing slip is highly recommended.
