Is the colour on my screen accurate?
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the website. However, due to potential colour differences among computer monitors and operating systems, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your screen is a true indication of the finished product. Swatch colours represented on the website may differ from the actual product.

If you are concerned about the status of your order, please email email@example.com or phone 021 932 6318 for order status.
The item I’m looking for is out of stock. How do I go about ordering it?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re struggling to order the item you want. It’s likely that we’re temporarily out of stock, in which case we can let you know when we’ll be receiving more, and even reserve one for you.

For more information on what is required to process a payment, proceed to checkout, select your desired option and follow the instructions.

Airloom is primarily an online retailer, but also distributes through several physical retail stores around the country. The service we offer is a door-to-door service, which means that the shipment is delivered to the address not the person. i.e. If the person is not available it can be left with anyone at that address e.g. security, staff, reception, etc. It is mandatory to leave a telephone or mobile number for us to contact you during delivery hours.
We ship nationally within South Africa, excluding PO Boxes, farms and rural areas.
All goods in transit are insured.
Please note that our products carry a 6-month warranty that consumers may exercise in the case of a flawed product. After this period, we cannot entertain returns/exchanges or refunds.
