We have a no refund policy for bespoke or custom-made items or projects.
We will only hand over a custom-made item or project when we feel 100% satisfied with the end results.
A custom made item takes time and is uniquely tailored to suit the clients needs.
Please understand, we are the designers, all our items are manufactured by selected manufacturing teams.
The labour that goes into making these items take time and we can only hand over a finished product once we are satisfied with the results.
Most of our items are welded and steel is not always perfect, we do have a grungy look to our items from time to time.
Steel has many imperfections that you can't always hide, the weld might be visible from time to time to ensure the item is strong enough.
NB: A client who requested a certain detail on their items takes full responsibility for their own request.
We will recommend what we think is best, but there are cases where clients want a certain detail.
The client needs to take full responsibility if their requested detail does not work from a manufacturing point of view.
Natural products, such as timber.
This is vital to understand.
The grain of any type of timber will always be different, as timber is a natural product a timber grain is not something we can manipulate.
Timber products may have natural markings and colour variations due to the nature of the product.
Under no circumstances do we take liability for any type of timber defects over time.
Clients take the full responsibility for the Timber, maintaining this and doing their own research on their timber and environment it is in.
If clients have aircon's, heaters or any form of direct sunlight getting into contact with the timber, this will result in the timber changing by either expanding or shrinking as well as drying out, drying out result to cracking and breaking possible even bending. Iltoro design will not take any responsibility for the timber, the end user and client have to maintain their furniture, if the client wants us to maintain the units, Iltoro design would then quote the client accordingly.
We will not replace or fix any timber related item, unless the client pays for the material and cost of production and our time, by purchasing an item of ours, you understand and agree to these terms.
If the client has ordered timber, and no longer wants timber, they are liable for the change of material cost, not Iltoro design such cost will also involve manufacturing fees.
Grain and timber have the characteristics of a natural product and not defects or signs of damage, unless clearly shown as broken when receiving the unit.
Please understand, the weather conditions in your country might be up and down, this does influence timber and steel.
Timber can expand, break, or even shrink due to the weather.
Timber must be sanded and varnished from time to time, we do not offer this service, unless agreed by the team before an order goes ahead.
Always use coasters, placemats, we recommend cork finished items.
Clients who order Plywood or Pine need to understand, it is an affordable option.
Plywood or pine can very often change in the grain, and be different finishes when sanded down, not all plywood or pine comes from the same supplier, or origin. We sand our plywood down, and varnish the timber with a liquid wax finish, the same goes for laminated pine, most of our varnishes and coatings are from a brand called woodoc, you are welcome to ask us for the type of finish we might have used on your item when you want to maintain and re-coat the timber.

Powder-coating can wear and tear, if you bump the items the paint may come off, make sure the item is not scratched or moved around too much.
Steel can bend, and move, do not let people stand on these items.
The mesh on steel can be sensitive, please do not carry and push on those areas, the welding on mesh is small sections and need to be used with care.
The client should know that the powder-coating may wear and tear on hinges and areas that are used often, that is normal.
If a client wants to re powder-coat items after some time, we are happy to quote you, just keep in mind that the coaters would need to strip the paint before coating, this will result in a double costing.
The stripping of the paint will be charged accordingly with powder coating.
The client will also be liable for the courier fees on these items.
Cleaning instructions: Wipe with a damp cloth only.
Please note that items that have hinges need to be sprayed with Q20 or a similar product from time to time.
