Color & Description
- Please be informed that the product specifications (eg. length, colour, handwork details, etc.) are indicative and many vary slightly.
- While every measure has been taken to accurately reproduce colours, there may be minor variations in colour shade of the actual product because of the nature of fabric, type of dyeing or due to difference in appearance due to lighting and digital photography. A customer is requested to place an order keeping in mind these minor variations
- We believe that customers are making a conscious choice, very well aware that colours seen on the monitor will be slightly different as compared to the actual saris ordered due to various reasons mentioned above. Please refer to sari guidelines to get an idea of how different coloured saris may vary differently.
Missing Beads and Sequences
We believe that customers who are ordering items with sequence and other beaded embroidery are aware of the fact that these shiny embellishments have a tendency to come off in spite of best handling and care.
