Some points to consider before purchasing a handcrafted ZariZar shawl or one of our minerals from the Deccan Plateau:
Shawls and Minerals:
Our photographs are checked for color accuracy on calibrated monitors before being added to our website. Because most home and business monitors are not color calibrated, there may be some color shift between what you see on your screen and the product you receive.
Because each shawl is hand-dyed and hand-loomed, there may also be slight variations of color or pattern within an individual shawl and between two shawls woven by the same artisan. Such personal variations, as are found in fine Persian rugs, are what makes each ZariZar shawl a work of art. They should not be considered flaws.
Note that variations in color, crystalline structure, and even type of mineral adhering to a rock surface occur naturally as minerals crystalize over millions of years. Some crystal faces also break when they are harvested from the rocks in which they are embedded. These variations are part of each item’s uniqueness and are not flaws.
Actual Flaws and Damage:
Every shawl is examined for flaws -- a hole, gap in the threads, recurring snags, stains or discolorations – before shipping. If a significant flaw has been overlooked or damage has occurred during packaging and shipping, please read the section on “Conditions for Returns” and then fill out the Return Authorization Request Form.
ZariZar carefully packages each mineral so it can travel safely from the Deccan Plateau to its destined home across the world. However, breakage has been known to occur, especially to the more delicate crystallize structures. You would know that such damage has occurred in travel because the broken pieces of crystal would be in the box. In such a case, please read the section on “Conditions for Returns” and then fill out the Return Authorization Request Form.
Conditions for Returns
The item is to be returned in its original condition.
In the case of a fabric, it must not have been worn or used, may not be soiled, damaged, or washed.
A mineral may not have been further damaged or altered in any way.
To protect the item, it must be returned in its original – or comparable – packaging.
The Request for a Return Authorization must be submitted within 7 days of receiving the item.
Once the item is returned, we will examine it to ensure it meets the terms for a refund and we will credit your account within 2-3 days.
How can I give a ZariZar shawl or mineral as a gift?
To order a shawl or mineral as a gift, enter your message on the checkout page. We will include a greeting card with your special message.
The invoice sent with the gift package will show the information needed to return an item, but not the price or billing information.
Who designs ZariZar’s shawls?
Many of our designs have been created in our fabric company, which has been in business for over 100 years. As fashions change, our weavers, designers, and even customers submit new designs.
Can a customer submit a proposed design to ZariZar for a customized shawl?
Yes, we are committed to providing the patterns, yarns, and colors that will delight you. Please phone 888-480-4943 to discuss your design preferences.
Do you sell special versions of your fabrics that can be worn as hijabs, saris, or used as upholstery?
