I'd like you to be completely happy with your order so please check the product descriptions and sizes carefully before ordering and contact me with any questions.

However, I understand a change of mind so if you'd like to return your entire order or part of your order, please contact me with full details.

Items can be returned for a full refund of the original purchase price  (excluding delivery) within 30 days of purchase as long as they are in their original condition and in their original packaging. Items must be sent back using a recorded/tracked service and insured to the appropriate value.

In the unlikely event that your order is faulty, please retain all original packaging and send a photograph of the item to me at louise@gnosticforestart.co.uk within 3 days of receipt so I can investigate. 

Packaging

I am committed to reducing my carbon footprint so wherever possible, I use recycled and recyclable packing when sending out products. 

  • Giclée prints - these are professionally printed externally by my printing partner in London, packaged between acid-free sheets for protection and sent directly to you in a recyclable cardboard envelope 
  • Clothing and homewares - these are produced on-demand externally. Products are sent in plain brown recycled packaging
  • Recycled prints - these prints are sent out directly by me. They are wrapped in compostable cellulose bags, sandwiched between recycled greyboard for added protection and sent out in plastic-free recycled envelopes
