We carefully inspect all our rugs for quality and faults before shipment. Our rugs are individually handcrafted items and as such they are subject to the following variations, which are not considered faults or defects:
Shedding: Handmade rugs are made from various natural fibres and will initially shed loose fibres. This is normal. The removal of any loose fibres will be hastened by regular vacuuming using a good quality upright vacuum cleaner. Do not use a beater head (mechanical drum roller machines).
Fading: Placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight will cause them to fade. Dark Rug will fade in sunlight. We suggest you rotate the rug to reduce potential damage caused by natural light. The darker the rug, the higher chance it will fade.
Size: Being a handmade rug, the size can vary by 3% from the ordered size.
Sprouting: There will be short fibres popping up while the rug settles and is also caused by furniture placed on top of the rug. This can be trimmed without risking the structural integrity or aesthetic appeal.
Colour: Our rugs are made primarily from natural and undyed fibres. Every effort is made to ensure there is minimal colour variation, however some variation can be expected.
While we take every measure possible to show product colours accurately, actual product colour may vary from the images shown, due to differences in the way screens display colours.
If your rug is faulty, please contact our Head Office on 02 9550 9933 immediately with photos of the issue. If the fault is deemed to be genuine, we will offer you an arrangement dependent on your circumstances. This may include:
- A replacement (subject to availability)
- An exchange (if exchange is for an item of lesser value you will be refunded the difference and we will require an additional payment if requested rug is of a higher value).
- Offer a refund for faulty rugs (subject to inspection at Designer Rugs Warehouse – up to 5 days).
- Designer Rugs will arrange return shipping of faulty goods at no cost to you, however if the rug is inspected and not found to be at fault, the cost of shipping will be charged back to the customer.
If you are shipping a faulty rug, please take the following actions:
1. Roll the rug up tightly in preparation for packaging, in the same way you received it.
2. Wrap the rug in the original packaging, in the same way you received it.
PLEASE NOTE: Rug damaged in return transit due to poor or insufficient packaging may incur additional charges.
If you are to be issued with a refund for a faulty rug, it will be processed within 7 business days. Refunds are processed using the same method as the original payment method. Your financial institution may require 3-5 days to clear the funds back into your account.
If the packaging is torn / damaged / wet etc., please do not sign the delivery docket and contact our Head Office on 02 9550 9933 immediately and supply us with photos.
We cannot offer an exchange or refund when damage has been caused from mishandling by the customer such as water stain, dirty footprints, tear, furniture marks, accidental cuts upon opening the packaging etc.
Our rugs are handmade and therefore unable to have an unconditional warranty. Designer Rugs will replace or repair a rug that has a structural defect within 12 months of purchasing, provided the rug was used for normal domestic use and maintained in accordance with our care instructions. The Designer rugs reserves the right to fix any defect before a replacement is deemed appropriate.
A replacement of the same rug will be given if that product is still available, otherwise a new product to the same value will be offered or online credit voucher. Any improper or negligent use will void this warranty. This warranty does not apply to any rugs that have been damaged by incorrect cleaning, chemical damage, water damage or flooding, fading due to sunlight, inappropriate use of the rug, cutting down or re-sizing, or general wear and tear over a number of years.
A product is not considered defective if there is a manufacturing variation as listed above. If you wish to make a claim under this warranty, you must provide photographic evidence to support the claim.
We ask that you email with the invoice number and date of purchase, or receipt and details of where the rug was purchased, a photo of the rug with a close-up image of the defect.
