Faulty Items

Faulty items are classified as faulty if they are received damaged, or where a manufacturing fault has occurred. Please note that items which have been damaged as a result of general wear and tear are not considered to be faulty. It is also important to take care when caring for your garments and follow the washing instructions carefully as natural dye clothing needs to be washed separately by hand with gentle detergents.  In accordance with Consumer Affairs, where possible, we will offer to repair faulty items. Please note that returned goods will not be accepted without proof of receipt.

 

Colours

It is important to note that Alcana uses natural dye, which has different characteristics to that of chemical dye. Fabrics dyed using natural dye may vary in colour, fade over time and run. This is apart of using organic natural materials and is not a fault. It is very important that the customer reads all washing and care instructions provided with their product and follows these instructions carefully.

It is also important to note that there may be a 10-15% colour change to the garment photographed due to different dye batches, this is part of brand and should be celebrated for its unique quality.

We endeavour to portray the colours of our garments as clearly as possible on this website. However because every monitor is different, the actual colours may vary slightly and we cannot guarantee that any colour will match the garment exactly.

 

Description of Goods

Alcana aims to be as accurate as possible when describing our garment styles featured on this website. However, we cannot guarantee that the product description provided is 100% accurate or complete. If you have further questions regarding a certain style please email hannah@alcana.com.au

We will repair, replace or refund the price of the product in our discretion.

Please note that due to the natural dye process, colour variations, fading and runs may occur and this is not accepted as a fault, it is part of the style of product we provide. In this case a return may not be accepted.

It is recommended that all products purchased from this website are hand washed with gentle detergents and not exposed to any acidic items. You will be provided with detailed washing instructions with your product purchase.
