Product normalities & variations
Every effort has been made to accurately display the colours and images of our products.
We cannot guarantee that your device’s display will be accurate.
The wood grain and colour of any products made from, or consisting of natural wood may vary.
Some wooden products may also have some splintering. This is especially common with bamboo. This is within scope of the finished product as it is a natural occurrence in the material.
Some products may have ‘smokey’ edges (like yellow or brown charring) however this is a normal occurrence due to the method of manufacturing.
For products that have acrylic applied as a second layer, an outline of the pieces that are to be applied will be marked on the first layer to ensure accurate placement. Sometimes these outlines can be seen right beside where the acrylic has been applied. This is within scope of the finished product as a result of the method of manufacturing and hand application of the materials.
Product dimensions are approximate and may vary slightly.
