Returns and Exchanges

Our policy is for EXCHANGES ONLY, no refunds.  Product/s that arrive damaged or have manufacturing defects may be returned for exchange after return approval is granted. Exchange requests must be made within 14 days from receipt of product.  If 14 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you an exchange.  No refunds are extended as all of our fabrics/products are made to order.

To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it, so that Design Nº 5, Inc. can determine the credibility of the defect or damage. It must also be in the original packaging.

Additional non-returnable items:

Gift cards

Gifts received as orders made by someone other than you with the exception of defective or damaged product/s.

To complete your exchange, we require that you notify Design . Five by emailing info@designnofive.com for prior approval.  A receipt or proof of purchase is required with the exchange.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.  Once approval is granted please return item to P.O. Box 102, Cotuit MA. In some instances another address will be provided.  If your shipper will not send to a P.O. Box please email orders@designnofive.com for a physical address.

Exchanges (if applicable)

Once your exchange is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your exchange.

If you are approved, then your exchange will be processed, and if applicable credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 7 business days.

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

Then contact your credit card company; it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.

If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at info@designnofive.com.

Sale items (if applicable)

Same Exchange Only terms apply for sale items.
