Terms and Conditions 

Pricing

  • All prices quoted include Value Added Tax (‘VAT’).

  • As exchange rates fluctuate continuously, Voke Rugs reserves the right to change prices from time to time without prior notification.

  • A quotation given by Voke Rugs is valid for 7 days only.


Orders & Stock

  • Official order numbers / names must be quoted on all trade orders.

Product Discrepancies

  • Dye-lot variations occur in all handmade rugs and are unavoidable.  The customer must examine the product against its general intended purpose and normal use before accepting delivery thereof.

  • With items being handmade, there may be imperfections such as loose tufts, stitching or joins not matching 100% - this is an inherent quality of the fibres used and handmade process and will not be considered as a fault. If a Client is not happy with any of these features, Voke needs to be notified within 7 days of receipt. 

  • Certain natural fibres can give off a smell – this is a natural occurrence either from being packaged for a long period or because of the fibre. This will not be considered a fault.

  • Certain fibres shed more than others – this too is a natural process and should subside over a few weeks. This will not be considered a fault. 

  • Voke Rugs will not accept any responsibility for rugs fading as a result of exposure to harsh sunlight. Fading as a result of exposure to sunlight will be accepted as fair wear and tear in line with the normal end use for which the rug is generally intended, even with rugs that are considered “outdoor.” Voke cannot stipulate the time frame of when fading will / will not occur.

  • Certain rugs can sprout where the fibres will come loose, creating a ‘tuft’. Please refer to the cleaning and maintenance instructions on how to handle this.

Please refer to cleaning & maintenance instructions for all rug maintenance. Voke cannot be accountable for any items that have been cleaned/treated incorrectly.

  • Please note that items arriving after the 7 working day return deadline will not be accepted and will be returned to sender.
