8. Product Liability
8.1 Local consumer laws regulating warranty and claims may apply.
8.2 The Company sells predominantly handcrafted products in various natural materials including wood, metal, clay, glass, stone, paper etc. Each product is unique and consequently there may exist variations in color, texture, shape, dimensions, surface hardness and overall consistency due to the natural material or production process. Small knots, stripes, color differences, marked and faint rings or lines of grains are signs of genuineness in material and are not regarded as defects or deficiencies. The Company does not guarantee the colorfastness or matching of the colors, grains, textures or surface hardness of such materials. The Buyer accepts these customary and reasonable variations and are thus not considered as defects and eligible for returns beyond the available return period as indicated in Section 5 above.

Warranty does not also cover normal wear and tear, acts of omission of parties other than the Company (including user modification), cuts or scratches, or damage caused by impacts, accidents or careless removal of packaging, as well as exposure to unusual conditions like dramatic temperature variations.
8.5 The Company can only be held responsible for any material damage caused by its products if it can be proved that such damage is due to error or negligence on the part of the Company.

We will assess each individual case and may request that the product must be returned for assessment at the Buyer’s own expense. If the claim is justified, the defect or deficiency will be repaired or the product exchanged. Failure to comply with these requirements means that the right to complain will be forfeited. The Buyer bears the risk while the goods are being stored and for the condition of the goods during storage.
