Uniqwa Collections manufactures its products from natural materials and recycled timbers and uses handmade processes in many of its products. Irregularities in shapes, colours, surfaces, and finishes may be present, and these imperfections are celebrated as part of our products' unique and natural characteristics. With pieces made from banana leaf fibre, colour tone variances of black, green and brown patches may be present within the fibre. Splitting, cracking, natural defects and leeching of natural oils are present in natural timbers and are not considered faults. Oils may leach and cause staining on items in contact with the timber. Uniqwa Collections cannot be held responsible for damages incurred from the leaching of timber oils. Due to the handmade nature of some products, specifications in size, shape and finish may differ slightly from those stated or shown on our website. As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as an accurate colour indication of the actual products. Some products may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
