Returns Information

Vass Textile Group offers a limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Our warranty is only valid on items purchased through an authorized Vass dealer to the original purchaser. Limited Warranty means that your garment will be free of manufacturer defects for the practical life span of the product. It does not mean the Vass garment will last your lifetime. Lifetime of a product is determined by the amount and type of use plus care of the garment. All garments eventually show signs of wear, and wear-and-tear is not covered under Vass Textile Group warranty. This warranty applies to all Vass branded products.

If your product covered by this warranty fails due to a manufacturing defect we will repair it without charge, or replace it, at our discretion. Only original, unaltered and unmodified items and workmanship are covered. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colours and materials over extended time and use. Damage not covered under warranty may be repaired for a reasonable rate and a fee will be charged for return shipping.
