Terms of Business & Returns


All Lampshades are made with spider fitting wires which are most common in America. Please be aware that that if ordering for a lamp base out with America these lampshades will not fit.

Any size, shape and or fitting can be made up but may incur additional charges and time.

Please contact Alice Kate via the contact page in the event you are requiring a different option from a spider fitting drum lampshade

Returns & Exchanges:

If your product is faulty, please let us know within 7 days of receiving and we can arrange a refund or an exchange depending on the issue.  However the refund will only be made once checked and determined to be applicable.  Return postage will be the responsibility of the customer.

Post and packaging costs are non-refundable unless the product is faulty.

Our lampshades and handmade items are all made bespoke to order, so unless faulty we cannot accept returns.  Please be sure to read the full item description before making your purchase.

Return Exceptions:

We do not offer refunds for delayed goods, please contact us with immediate effect if your product has not arrived in a timely manner and if there is an issue we will arrange an express delivery for the same week. Please allow up to 14 days for all orders, although many of our orders are next day.


Please always order a sample if unsure of colors before ordering fabric as every monitor varies for color and we cannot exchange or refund goods where the color was not as what was expected on screen.  Our color descriptions are references to the palette and look of the fabric and are not intended to be explicit definitions of tone.

Although we strive to achieve perfection, the nature and beauty of linen is due to its uneveness and this can result in very slight imperfections.  On printed backgrounds the chances are higher of the odd printing dot, again we would hope for this not to happen but please be aware of this.  We have stated this on any background printed fabric listing.

Our linens can fade – fabric will fade if it’s been left in the sunlight it will also fade if the fabric is repeatedly dry cleaned.

Washing Instructions:

We recommend dry-cleaning only for cushion covers and light spot cleaning with a damp cloth on all lampshades.
