Incorrect or faulty items

If you believe that a fault has occurred with an item purchased from kowtowclothing.com within six months of purchase, please email customer care with photos and a brief explanation of the issue so that we can work to find a resolution for you. We reserve the right to repair or replace an item we deem to be faulty as a first resort.

All faulty items will be assessed upon return, so must be sent back clean.
