Refunds and Exchanges 

Kiana Carn prides herself by offering the highest quality merchandise to meet the needs of her clients. Each item is handmade and inspected by the designer herself. ALL sales are final; ALL items are made to order so we DO NOT issue refunds on any items.

We do NOT offer exchanges for incorrect sizes. We provide a size chart to better assist customers with choosing their correct size. If you need help with choosing your correct size, please contact us. When ordering, please be advised that in some cases minor alterations should be expected, since we are not present to get your exact measurements, in which case this has to be done locally and at your expense. If you need any assistance on how and where to alter your item for the fit you prefer. Contact us.

If you have a problem with an item due to an error on our part, (ex. wrong color, design, size etc) please contact us within 7 days of receiving the item and we will assist you.

Deposits

Deposits are REQUIRED for a consultation. Once your consultation is complete if you choose to proceed with completion of your item, the remaining balance left to satisfy the 50% of your custom item total is required. You must be paid in full to receive your item. Once your item is complete you have 15 days to fulfill your total balance.

Your deposit is a portion of your balance, once your deposit is placed, your deadline is secure and your materials are ordered soon after, so deposits are non refundable. If you cancel your order after production is started, you lose your deposit along with any payments made. 

Swatches

The color of an item in a picture may not accurately depic the actual color, however you can request a sample.

Cancelled Event for Custom
