In general, we do not accept returns. Everything at Thatcher is made by hand in small batches, so some natural variation in appearance is normal (and beautiful!). However, in the rare case that any product is deemed defective or unfit for use, we will replace (never refund) any defective wallpaper or tile. Please read our inspection policy below. Please do not cut any wallpaper or tile prior to examining. By cutting or otherwise using the product, the product is considered acceptable and is not eligible for claim.

Unused wallpaper or tile is not eligible for return. If you have any wallpaper or tile leftover from your project, we strongly recommend that you keep this as “attic stock”. Attic stock is wallpaper/tile which is stored away in case any of the wallpaper/tile is damaged in the future

Wallpaper and Tile Inspection Policies

Wallcovering Inspection: Examination of the paper prior to hanging is the buyer's responsibility. Ensure that all rolls are the correct color and pattern, are all part of the same dye lot, have no variation in color, have no print flaws, and that there are enough rolls to complete the job. If any errors in the aforementioned are found, we ask that you contact us right away, and we will promptly reply. Do not cut any of the wallpaper (even rolls deemed fit) in your order prior to speaking with us. By cutting the wallpaper, the buyer/installer has approved the wallpaper for use, and no claims for return may be made. Please note that Thatcher will exchange but not refund any wallpaper that is deemed unfit for use. Claims must be made within two weeks of receiving your shipment.

Tile Inspection: Examination of the tile prior to installing or cutting is the buyer's responsibility. Because each tile is handmade, you can expect variations in thickness, color, and slight variations in pattern. You can also expect irregular edges, occasional chipped edges, and cracked or crazed surfaces. These qualities are a part of the handmade cement tiles and are not considered defects. Cement tiles are known for their nuance and irregularities - that is part of the handmade charm. The colors shown on our website, and even in physical samples that you may have received are approximations of what you can expect in your tile order. If your project requires exact color matches, either to what you have seen in our photos or in your sample tile, then cement tile is not recommended for your project, since nuanced, slightly varying color is expected in this product. 2-3% breakage is considered normal. Dust and residue upon the tile should be cleaned from the tiles prior to installation and is not considered a flaw. Upon the tile’s arrival, inspect the tile. You have 72 hours to report any issues with your order. Any of the above variations in the product are not considered flaws and are not subject to claim. By installing, cutting, or otherwise working with the tile, the buyer or installer has agreed to accept the tile, and no claims may be made. Please note that Thatcher will exchange but not refund any tile that is deemed unfit for use.
