A Blackbird Sang iconic designs are made by us in Oxfordshire. Each piece is inspected by us when first cut, then when we paint them, and finally when they are packaged. If we spot any slight fault in the finish, shape, or flatness (sometimes we've bent something by mistake), or cutting, then these become seconds. All seconds are structurally sound and you can always re-paint them yourself before use if you wish.
We used to only sell these at discount prices at events throughout the year as we hate to waste anything. At events customers typically ask why we're selling odd things at a discount and are surprised when we point out an imperfection. Happy to buy! Now they're available here online in our Shop.
This is part of our philosophy on use of precious materials:
- make something last as long as you can
- give good design a good home
- make it recyclable at the end of its life
- try to find a home even for imperfect work
This does not affect your statutory rights and, as it would be difficult to photograph every item, we are happy to refund an item if you're not happy with on receipt on the basis that you cover the cost of postage back to us.
