WARRANTY & RETURN POLICY
Lanart/Rug Studio understands that from time to time you may wish to return an area rug to us.
Lanart/Rug Studio offers a 1 year warranty to cover all workmanship/craftsmanship, including:
2.1.1 A line formed by joining together two pieces of material at their edges. Seams are visible, especially when you know where they are and therefore an acceptable seam does not mean it will be invisible.
2.2.1 A process done by hand which adds dimension, depth and texture. As this process is done by hand very slight imperfections may appear and does not mean this is a defect.
2.3 EDGE FINISHING
2.3.1 Two kinds of edge finishing exist, binding and serging. Binding is a band or strip sewn over the rug's edges. Serging is where yarn is sewn around the rug edges in a close overcast stitch. Both types of finishing are intended to protect and strengthen the edge of the rug.
Lanart/Rug Studio’s warranty does not cover: shedding, discoloration, staining and soiling.
The warrantly is valid only within 1 year from the date of the original invoice.
