Please note that not all products are made in a homogenous manner, particularly the Japanese cast iron teapots which are meticulously handmade by experienced craftsmen one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a slight minor variations from one item to the next. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products and make your purchase special and unique. By purchasing these products, you accept this condition of sale. This does not affect your statutory rights.
