How to return

Securely package the item in a mail bag being careful not damage the item in any way, please do not use the product packaging to return the item as this will invalidate any returns (we have had shoe boxes simply taped up with the address written on them before) as this damages the packaging irreversibly. We recommend using the mail bag we sent the item/s in, so you may want to keep this packaging until you are sure you are completely happy with the item.
