Colour & Description
Product details or specifications (for instance weight, colour, hand-work details, size, etc.) quoted with the product displays are only approximate values.
While every effort is made to accurately reproduce colours, there may be minor variations in the colour of the actual product because of the nature of fabric dyes, weather at the time of dyeing and differences in the display output due to lighting, digital photography, color settings and capabilities of monitors. A customer must place an order keeping in mind that is there is always a possibility of variation in color as seen on a computer screen against the actual color of the outfit received. ethnowear firmly believes that all the customers who order online are aware that colours seen on a monitor will be slightly different as compared to the actual outfits or accessories ordered. It is practically impossible for ethnowear.com to replicate the same colors on an outfit as seen on your monitor. A variation in the shade selected by you is considered as a normal practice as these garments have a tendency to reflect different shades of a color in different light and weather, type of camera used for photography or type and settings on the computer monitor. We wish to clarify and establish that every customer who orders any outfit from ethnowear.com is aware of this genuine problem. While ordering on the Internet, we suggest that customers should be extra careful and remember the following
1. Red, maroon and orange are most liable to look a different shade than any other colors. For example, if you photograph or scan a red garment from a digital camera most of the time it will show either as maroon or orange on the computer monitor and vice versa. Though imaging technology has advanced, there is still no foolproof solution available at the moment to this problem.
2.Sometimes green and blue shades also overlap. The same is the case with off-white, white and cream colors.
3.Sea Green color sometimes looks Aqua blue and vice-versa.
4.Some fabrics like raw silk, khadi silk, cotton silk, brocade, and cotton from the south all have a textured effect where we can see the weaving pattern & threads visible in different directions. This is an inherent characteristic of these fabrics and proof of its authenticity. These are not defects. This raw finish is the beauty of these fabrics.
5.Handcrafted, hand dyed, hand printed, hand painted, hand embroidered, hand woven hand loom products will always have minor variations with the garment as they are not made by machines. The finish of handicrafts cannot be compared with machine-finished products as this raw finish is the beauty of the handicraft items.
Beads and Sequins Missing or Coming off
We believe that customers who are ordering items with sequins and beaded embroidery are aware that these shiny embellishments have a tendency to come off. Even with the best of handling and care this cannot be avoided. Many times a more than usual amount of sequins beads come off during a strict physical checking of the item at customs while in transit. Sometimes it may happen that you open a box and find some pieces falling on the floor. Or you wear the dress and in a few hours you might lose some of them. Do not over-react: if you look closely at any such dresses / saris worn by others, you will most certainly find pieces missing or coming loose.
