Placing an order
We ask that you provide an accurate email address that you can access during the registration of your account and the check-out process of all your orders. We will use this information to contact you about your order.
Our acceptance of your order will occur when we email you to accept it and assign an order number to you. At which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. Do tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
If we cannot accept/fulfil your order, we will inform you of this by email and not charge you for the items. We may cancel your order because the product is out of stock, we have identified an error in the price or description or are unable to meet the delivery deadline you have specified. We reserve the right to refuse an order if we cannot authorise payment or suspect fraudulent activity.
Returns and refunds
It would be our pleasure to get to know you, so feel free to email us. We’ll happily walk you through how to choose the proper sizing for your order.
We hope that you are delighted with your pieces from The Cloth. We manufacture our designs at our atelier in Belmont, Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. Due to customs restrictions, we will accept returns and a full refund of your purchase and shipping costs only if your order meets both of the following conditions:
- the order is incorrect / damaged / presents manufacturing defects
- the piece is in its original condition, unworn, with tags and packaging included
If your return meets these conditions, please contact us by email at email@example.com within fifteen (15) business days of receiving the pieces, and we will remedy this asap.
If your order does not meet these conditions, and you wish to exchange for a different size or style, please email us and reference your order number. You are able to return for a different size, style or store credit. We do not issue refunds at this time. Please be aware that shipping costs and handling charges will also be non-refundable. You are responsible for prepaying and insuring your return shipment. If you choose to return, please attach the commercial invoice to your package along with the shipping label and ship it to our atelier located at 24 Erthig Road, Belmont, Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies. We recommend that you use tracked mail as you will bear responsibility for any loss or damage to the shipment.
