you have selected you can exit the process.

What can I do if I change my mind?

We understand that sometimes things change, so if you change your mind about what you have purchased we will be happy to provide you with a store credit so you can choose something that suits your needs a little better. Just send them back to us within 14 days in original condition and packaging, please also include a copy of your receipt and contact information.

Unfortunately any related postage/shipping costs are non-refundable.

What happens if there is a problem with the items on delivery?

When we send your items to you we will make sure they are the best products we can produce. However, if for any reason they don’t meet your expectations or you find them to be faulty please return them to us for a full refund.

If your goods were damaged in transit it would also be appreciated if you could please include all packaging so we can investigate what went wrong and try to prevent it from happening again.

In all cases where products have been returned because they are faulty or damaged we will also reimburse your postage/shipping costs along with the full cost of your items. When returning goods we also recommend you get a receipt from the post office – just in case something happens and they don’t make it back to us.

Many of our products are either entirely or partly handmade, and as such there may be some slight differences in the way the product looks on the website and how they look when you receive them. These won’t change the overall nature, quality or design of the product. Hopefully, like us, you will enjoy having your own unique product, however if for any reason you are not happy please return it to us in its original condition and we will give you a refund. For more information on what is involved in making our products please see our Swiden Design Ethos section.

A little bit more information about returns.

All Swiden Design products are unique and many are partially or entirely handmade and as such there is a limited number of each item that we can produce. If an item you have received is damaged or faulty we will try to replace it with the same item. If however this is not possible we will do our best to provide you with a similar item which you will enjoy just as much. If you are unhappy with the alternative item we will be happy to provide you with a full refund.

Swiden Design Ethos.

Here at Swiden Design we hope all our customers will enjoy our products as much as we have enjoyed designing and creating them. We also feel that it is important to not just create products that are unique and beautiful but also to create products that are representative of our values. That’s why we use processes and resources that limit environmental impact and contribute to sustainability where possible.

Some of the ways in which we seek to limit our environmental impact include:

  • All Trays, Coasters and Cutting boards are made from
    environmentally certified Scandinavian birch
  • Our Monkey Cards are made from 100% recycled paper
  • Most other paper products also use vegetable based inks which don’t harm the environment
  • Invoices and purchase orders are only provided in hard copy on request by customers
  • Non-toxic, water based dyes are used on printed fabrics

At Swiden Design we will continue to look for ways to improve environmental sustainability in
the way we create our products and incorporate these into our processes where we can.

If you have any feedback about Swiden’s business, people, designs or anything at all
please contact us as at info@swiden.com.au
