Finish Quality

Part of the beauty of working with natural materials is the expected variation in grains and hues. Such differences within our products are not indicative of a defect. With products made with green wood, splitting and irregularities are to be expected as the product ages and dries. This is an intended part of the design and not a defect.

Kalon Studios cannot match or guarantee specific wood grains or hues nor will accept any return or refusal of goods based upon variation in grains and hues.

Lead Time

Lead time is generally 6-8 weeks from placement of order. Please email us at studio [@] kalonstudios.de with any questions.

Payment

Payment is accepted in euros within 10 days of order placement by electronic fund transfer or by ordering online with Giropay, Visa, or Mastercard.

INSPECTION

Even though items are packaged properly, transit-related damage can occur. Kalon Studios takes great care in packaging items to ensure safe transport and all shipments are insured against loss or damage. When an order arrives, please inspect your order at the time of delivery and only accept merchandise received in good condition. It is imperative that the outer boxes be inspected carefully and that any damage to the boxes and additional packaging materials is noted on the delivery receipt. Shipping documents should not be signed without recording details of transit damage. (For example: the box is crushed on the top corner, punctured, or wet.) If you decide to accept merchandise that appears to be damaged, please indicate the condition next to your signature accepting the delivery. Please notify the shipper of any damages immediately and be certain to retain all original packaging. Claims will require digital photos.
