Placing an order

By placing an order with us you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Terms and Conditions. If you are unhappy with or unclear about any aspect of these terms, please contact us before placing an order - either by telephone on +44 (0)1798 344027, by email at or by post using the address given below.

Telephone calls to and from Rugs of Petworth may be recorded or monitored as part of our efforts to further improve service to our customers. Unless stated otherwise, all calls to The Rug Company using the number above are charged at your standard rate from a BT landline, Mobile Providers and other Networks may vary.

By placing an order via this website you are making an offer to Rugs of Petworth to purchase the goods detailed in your order upon the terms described in your order. Once you have placed an order we will send you a confirmation that your order has been received but this is not a confirmation that your offer to purchase the goods has been accepted. A contract between you and Rugs of Petworth for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted and processed. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Prices and availability of goods are subject to change without notice. A delivery charge will be added to your order value where appropriate. Please see our delivery times and charges.
All dates quoted for delivery are estimated delivery dates only and may be subject to change. We can accept no liability for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) if delivery takes place at any time other than the estimated date for delivery.

Delivery times and charges

Deliveries to mainland UK addresses are free of charge and we endeavour to make them within two working days (Monday to Friday) using our shipping partner, UPS.
We deliver to most national and international destinations. Deliveries to all international addresses will take longer, but we try to send all orders by the quickest route possible. Delivery charges for outside the UK are calculated by volumetric weight, and are calculated at the checkout.

Receipt of order confirmation

You will receive an order receipt confirmation email as soon as you have placed an order. Please keep it in a safe place as we may ask you for information from it in any correspondence.  If you do not receive this email please contact, so that we may investigate and confirm that your order has been placed successfully.

We take every care to ensure that the description and specification of our products are correct. However, specifications and descriptions of products on this website are not intended to be binding and are intended only to give a general description of the products. Furthermore, while the colour reproduction of the products is a close representation, we cannot accept any responsibility for any variation in colour caused by the browser software or computer system used to view the products.

Product size and colour

All of our products are handmade, and rugs can vary in size by up to 10cm in width or length from the size shown. Likewise, although natural dyes are used for accuracy, colours can vary slightly from rug to rug. This is normal and, by placing an order via this website, you confirm your understanding and acceptance of this. If you require a rug of a specific size, please contact us - either by telephone on +44 (0)1798 344027, by email at

However, occasionally an item will be out of stock and if this is the case this will normally be highlighted in your shopping basket. The stock status for your order will also be shown on your order confirmation.
If one or more item of a multiple order is out of stock, we will not despatch your order until we contact you and agree to deliver the available products.
