Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, colours may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and colour reproduction on the internet may not be precise. Since it is not possible to guarantee colours are the exact match to what you may believe it to be, please be advised that this will not be looked upon as a manufacturing fault, therefore returns will not be accepted due to colour variances.
Camilla garments are enriched with hand made embellishments, beads, sequins & crystals. These are applied by hand and differences between garments are unavoidable and some embellishments may come off the garment. This is not deemed faulty.
These products have been individually printed. Irregularities and gentle shading impart the product with a distinctive individuality and enhance its value as a textile art form. They are not considered defects. Due to the fine fabrics, please take care when wearing jewellery as they may snag. Have fun when wearing your garment as it has been made with lots of love!
