Product Variation

As described in our product descriptions, every Lost Forest product is carefully handmade using a range of natural materials. This may result in variations in colour, shape and texture between pieces. We endeavour to minimise these variations, however all product images provided on the Lost Forest website should be taken as an example of the design, rather than the individual piece purchased.  A handmade item does not have a machine made, uniform finish. This is a charming inherent character of a handcrafted item and will not impact on the integrity, beauty or quality of the finished piece.
