Returns

If for any reason you aren’t happy with your Matea Designs order, you can return the items for an exchange or refund. If you have received a faulty item, we offer your choice of a refund or 120% store credit. All refunds will be issued via the payment method you used to purchase the items.

You have 14 days to post your return back to us, starting from the day you receive your order.

After the 14 day period has lapsed, the sale is final. 

Please note that if you return an item, you will need to cover the cost of postage. However, if you have received a faulty item or the wrong item, then we will cover those charges.

We suggest using a trackable postage option. Unfortunately, if the package is lost on its way to us we are unable to process your return. We will not process a return until the items are received back by us.
