Tracking emails will be provided. An email on the morning a consignment is out for delivery should be sent, however, this out for delivery email is not always sent as this depends on the couriers scanning updates.

A timeslot / call prior to delivery is not a service which is currently available for deliveries or re-deliveries. A whole day must be provided for a redelivery & the day can be requested by the customer for a redelivery.
If a consignment delivery has extended beyond the provided timeframe, please contact us & an official enquiry will be lodged via the appropriate channels of communication with the courier.

The images provided by Lost Design Society are professionally produced & aim to depict a rug's colour as close as possible.
An exact colour match of our product images is limited by technology, including lighting, screen & monitor settings, pixel definitions, operating systems & web browsers. Therefore, expect likely variations in a rug’s colour compared to the images provided on our website. Lost Design Society cannot guarantee that the colour displayed on a customer’s particular monitor is the exact colour of the actual product. Each rug may contain more colours than the product name describes.
As all light has colour, a rug's colour will appear different under varying lighting sources such as: natural daylight, fluorescent light, incandescent light, artificial lighting, lamps etc.
The colours surrounding a rug will impact how the colour of your rug will appear. For instance, if you place a light rug beside a dark wall, the colours of the rug will reflect a tinge from the wall & its surroundings. This reflection changes the appearance of a rug.
Different yarns & materials absorb & reflect light differently. Light will also reflect differently when it is reflected off different sides of the yarn. Therefore, a rug will appear different in colour from different angles.
A transitional rug is often not symmetrical in pattern & colour, as this is part of their unique design.
Given the above factors, also expect colour & product appearance to vary from the images provided by our customers that are shared via reviews & social media.
Generally photography is provided of the small area size (eg 230x160cm) rug/runner (e.g 80x300cm). Please keep this in mind as purchasing a larger size rug, may accentuate a rug’s pattern. For example, four rows of patterns instead of two or three.
Returns due to an accentuated pattern is classified as change of mind return. A change of mind return after purchase is only valid within 30 days receipt of your shipment.
Shedding of wool rugs & natural fibre rugs classifies as a change of mind return. Shedding is a natural characteristic of wool & natural fibre rugs. A change of mind return after purchase is only valid within 30 days receipt of your shipment.
Handmade and hand-dyed products will have slight variations in the weave & appearance & possibly in the size. These variations add to the unique and individual character of a hand made product. Returns due to these inconsistencies & variances will be classified as a change of mind return and terms & conditions will apply. A change of mind return after purchase is only valid within 30 days receipt of your shipment.
Returns due to do Abrash affect are classified as a change of mind return.
Abrash is a term used to describe colour variations & deviations in colour.
Abrash rugs have an antique fade & overdyed finish to provide a vintage look.
This abrash affect gives the rug it’s intentional colour variations. The colours of an abrash rug will look different when viewing the rug from various angles & light, which is a unique feature of the abrash affect.

All items being returned are the customer's responsibility to be sufficiently packaged to prevent damage in return transit & packaged images are required to be supplied by the customer.

Rugs are not a permanent fixture & therefore they may
move. If this occurs a rug is required to be put back in place.
A rug’s movement can also be affected if a rug is weighed
down by objects on any part of a rug.
As every room is different, the surface which a rug is
placed on top of can also impact the amount of movement in & of the rug. A
rug that is placed on a soft floor may experience more movement than a rug which
is placed on a hard floor.
Each room will also have a varying amount of foot traffic.
This foot traffic & or the various objects placed on top of a rug may also
affect a rug's movement.
Bunching up of a rug may occur when furniture/objects
prevent the natural traffic movement of a rug. This may result in the bunching
of a rug against furniture/objects placed on top of a rug. Bunching may occur
in some areas of a rug & not in other areas.
Bunching may be reduced by removing the weighted anchor
points placed on top of a rug.
A rug that is bunching could be placed in another space,
without objects placed on top of a rug.
A customer may consider moving a rug that is bunching on a
soft floor to a hard floor.
Viscose is a super soft and shiny fibre that can be used on its own or to add soft, shimmering touches to natural fibre rugs. Viscose rugs will shed. More shedding will occur if used in a high traffic area. If water is exposed to a viscose rug, immediately blot dry with paper towels to absorb the spill. Exposing water to a viscose rug may cause a viscose rug to stain & in this situation, a stained rug is not eligible for return, as this is a natural characteristic for some viscose rugs.
