Cosy's Terms and Conditions

Upcycled products

We find it so rewarding whenever we're able to take a single-use item and repurpose it to give it another lease of life, a number of our favourite products began life as something else and we're proud to play our part in reducing our impact on the environment. Where an item is listed as utilising upcycled or repurposed materials there could be cosmetic imperfections, as long as these do not impair the function of the item for its intended purpose then it is not considered to be faulty or damaged.

Natural/Rustic/Handmade products

Part of what makes these products so beautiful is the unique and individual characteristics each piece displays, no two items are ever identical and that's why we love them. Wood is a living and ever-changing material, over time the colour and appearance of these products can change, splits can appear and bark can shed, this is a natural part of the aging process, cosmetic imperfections could exist or develop but as long as these do not impair the function of the item for its intended purpose then it is not considered to be faulty or damaged. These products they should be taken out of their packaging within 24 hours to allow the products to breathe, acclimatise and prevent spoilage and or deterioration. To ensure the longevity of these products the care instructions should be followed, these can be found here:
