IMPORT DUTIES AND TAXES
If you are ordering from outside Australia, we assume that you are aware of any import duties or taxes that may apply in your country.
We will not be responsible for the payment of any such costs, nor will we be responsible for replacing goods that may be seized by customs in your country.
RETURNS, EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS
We do not accept returns for refund or exchange under any circumstances. Products are made to order and a lot of time and care goes into creating each order. Because of the fact that we are unable to provide refunds or exchanges for change of mind, we encourage to consider your order carefully before confirming.
We take a lot of care when packaging orders for shipment, and each item is inspected thoroughly for defects before it is sent to its new home.
All A4 prints are packed in plastic protective pockets with boxboard and are sent in a rigid envelope for extra protection.
A3- A1 prints or posters are rolled up carefully and placed in appropriate mailing tubes.
Garlands and pillowslips are sent in plastic tuff bags.
If your item arrives damaged please contact us within 48 hours with your order number and photographs/descriptions of the damage alleged. We will assess damage on a case-by-case basis and it is at our discretion to determine whether an item can be returned or refunded on the basis of damage.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept the return of any product if we do not deem it to have been damaged during postage and handling. Furthermore we will refuse a damaged return if you have not provided us with an e-mail notification and appropriate corresponding photographs within the specified time period after receiving your order.
If your order is deemed as having been damaged in transit, we will provide you with a replacement as soon as practicable. Your initial item must be returned to us in an un-used condition, including all original tags and packaging.
From time to time we may offer promotions to our lovely customers. These may include, but are not limited to, discount codes, vouchers or giveaways.

We reserve the right to suspend, cancel or modify any such promotions, at any time without notice or consequence.
We make every effort to ensure that the images and descriptions of our products are accurate. We cannot, however, be liable for differences in color or appearance that may be attributed to variations in calibration of your computer monitor or handheld device.
If you have any questions about products you might be interested in, and desire further information or photographs before placing your order, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make every attempt to assist you with your choice.
In addition to this, because our items are handmade, they may differ slightly from product to product. Any variation that may exist in colour, appearance or otherwise, is not considered a fault and is instead reflective of the uniqueness of each item.
Our felt ball garlands and mini deer’s are intended for decorative purposes only and should NOT be considered toys for children. The small parts incorporated in these designs are hazardous to small children and care should be taken to ensure that children are not left unattended with these items.
Before you begin to enjoy your Toucan purchases, please take note of the following care instructions. They will assist you in ensuring the longevity of your beautiful Toucan products.
All pillowslips should be washed on a cold delicate cycle. Please do not bleach or tumble dry. If you wish to iron your pillowslip, please make sure it is inside out and set the iron to a low/gentle setting.
Our felt ball rugs are hand felted and are made from 100% durable wool. They can be used on both sides, which we recommend in order to maintain their quality. These products should be cared for with regular vacuuming and an outdoor shake off to remove any dust particles. Rugs should not be used in wet areas. In the case of a spill, gently dab the affected area. Do not rub aggressively as this may cause damage or discoloration.
Unfortunately we do not offer a warranty period for any of our products, including felt ball rugs. We encourage customers to follow all product care guidelines listed here, in the product description, or that accompany your product and take all reasonable precautions to ensure the long-life and quality of your items. Please contact us at: email@example.com, if you require any further information regarding the long-term care of your particular product.
