ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
The majority of our products are handmade to order so whilst we endeavour to get everything out within 7 days this isn't always possible. Where delays occur we will be in contact as soon as possible and will offer you the option of sending separately in cases where multiple items are ordered, exchanging for an alternative item or failing that we are happy to offer a full refund.
If you prefer you can contact us before placing your order to check on availability.
All sizes and measurements are approximate however we do make every effort to ensure that they are as accurate as possible. Unless otherwise stated, sizes indicated are UK sizes.
Although we have tried to show a typical product in our site photographs due to the unique handfinished nature of our products the item received may differ slightly from that photographed. As all Couch UK products are handfinished essentially no two are the same. If in the unlikely event you are unhappy with the item received you are of course entitled to return it as per our returns policy.
As a general rule your couch clothing should be handwashed in cool water. When washing, garments should be washed inside out. Your Couch garment should never be dry cleaned and should never be put in the dryer.
GENERAL RUBBER CARE INFORMATION
Many of our Couch products use latex rubber - here are a few tips for keeping rubber in good condition:
rubber stains easily especially if light coloured - if stained wash immediately.
NEVER use anything oil based on rubber as this will cause it to perish and it will not be possible to repair the damage.
Wash in luke warm water with a touch of mild washing up liquid. It should then be rinsed in cool water and left to dry naturally (this applies to the rubber element of your product or where the product is made entirely of rubber).
Where the rubber is handprinted on beanies, garments etc handwash in cool water as above.
DO NOT iron over rubber.
Polishing helps protect the rubber and gives that a glossy effect. You an purchase a silicone based polish fairly easily in a specialist outlet or you can use any car tyre polish which can be picked up fairly easily at DIY stores.
Exposure to heat, sunlight and moisture will eventually weaken the rubber sometimes leaving it dull or discoloured. It is essential therefore to store in a cool dry place
