Warranty and Returns

Designer Bums is proud to work with highly experienced and quality manufacturing partners, using premium materials. However, if there is a problem or mistake with your purchase and you are not satisfied with your product please see the warranty information below. The warranty is extended to original owner of the product only, and proof of purchase must be supplied. This excludes international orders.


We trust our products completely, so all our products are fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for 3 months from purchase.  We are committed to complying with all our obligations under consumer laws.  If a product fails due to a major manufacturing fault or material defect, you can ask for a replacement or refund.  Or, we will repair it free of charge if that is possible and practical.  For a minor fault or defect, we may repair it free of charge, or if it is not practical to repair it, we will replace it or offer a refund at our discretion. In the event we have made an error, we will cover all shipping costs.
