Our rattan furniture items are hand woven from synthetic PE rattan. Due to the nature of the synthetic rattan the material on the table tops can expand in the heat and appear to sag. This is more apparent with our thicker weave sets. This effect is completely normal, it is not a fault with your furniture and as soon as the weave cools it will return to its usual state. This will happen with all rattan garden furniture but the effect can be limited with the use of a parasol during sunny conditions.
Any faults should be reported to us as soon as possible by emailing us at email@example.com. Pleasemake sure you include your order reference and photographic evidence of thefault so that we can diagnose the issue. Once the fault has beendiagnosed, a replacement part(s) will be sent in the post or with a courier forthe customer to fit. If we determine that the full item needs replacingwe will arrange an exchange free of charge. Please be aware the faultygoods must be returned in their original packaging. If the goods areunused and the goods were received faulty then you may be entitled to a refundif you prefer.
