 3.  Defective products

We do our best to ensure that the products we deliver to you are of a high quality and without defects. 

What is a defect? 

A defect is a material imperfection in the manufacture of a product or any characteristic of a product, which makes the product less acceptable than one would reasonably be entitled to expect in the circumstances. As all our sewn, beaded and soap products are handmade in a rural home and not mass produced in a factory, some imperfection is allowed, as long as it does not affect the functionality of the product.

The following will NOT be regarded as defects and will not entitle you to a return under this section 3: 

  • faults resulting from normal wear and tear;

  • damage arising from negligence, user abuse or incorrect usage of the product;

  • damage arising from electrical surges or sea air corrosion;

  • damage arising from a failure to adequately care for the product;

  • damage arising from unauthorized alterations to the product; and

  • where the specifications of a product, although accurately described on the Website and generally fit for its intended purpose, do not suit you.


4.  Charges

If you return a product that does not comply with this Policy, you may be liable to reimburse Ubunye Foundation Online Shop for the cost of collecting the product from you and the cost of having the product returned to you.
