After that initial meeting and if we are interested in stocking your product we will send you further information regarding our consignment sales and how we work.  But do keep in mind that most of the products in Fabricate are sold on a consignment basis.

What criteria do you use when choosing products for your shop?

All products need to be made in South Africa. We choose products which resonate with the look and feel of our shop. Items must be of a high quality and well finished. We look for products that are well presented with good packaging and an original thoughful design. Good value for money and affordability are factors we consider. We also need to consider if there is a similar product in the shop already. New things which fill a gap in the market are always a bonus.

What is your returns policy?

Refunds will only be given on defective goods where the defect is due to a manufacturing fault. Refunds due to a manufacturing fault can be issued within 6 months of the purchase date.

Exchanges can be done, or a credit note issued, within 30 days of a purchase with the presentation of a receipt or invoice number.

Items for exchange need to be in their original packaging and unused.

Unfortunately we can not offer returns or exchanges on earrings, toiletries and food items.

All these terms are in line with the Consumer Protection Act.
