Prices on our website are shown inclusive of IRISH VAT (value added tax) at the prevailing rate. Taxes and duties are calculated according to your shipping destination, if you order items for delivery outside of Ireland they may be subject to import duties and taxes.
During the buying procedure, you will identify the destination country for the items. This information is used to then re-calculate the Irish VAT duties for the destination country. These are calculated and shown to you as part of the final invoice before you authorize payment.
Please note that cross-border deliveries may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. You are considered the importer of record for items you order through our website and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the items are to be delivered. Most destinations are shipped to on a DDU (delivery duty unpaid) basis, which means that all relevant import taxes and duties will be excluded in the final payment invoice.
Once your order arrives at its destination you may be required to pay import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to, in order to release your order from customs. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, and they remain the responsibility of the customer.
Please refer to individual product pages for the item’s sizing shown in centimetres and inches.
We recommend that you avoid washing your CIARA SILKE scarves and instead entrust them to your dry cleaner, who will clean them professionally and pay careful attention to their hand-rolled hems and hand-finished details.
Do not machine wash or bleach any CIARA SILKE scarves. Always iron on a cool setting, making sure to iron on the reverse of printed styles. Always avoid ironing hand-rolled hems and any embroidered, surface detail.
Please remember that printed silk can be damaged by rain.
Each CIARA SILKE printed scarf is made by hand in historic mills in Como, Italy, the home of world-class, luxury silk printing. The scarves are impeccably finished with hand-frayed or hand-rolled hems; every hand-rolled hem takes up to an hour of meticulous craftsmanship from an expert seamstress.
We use the finest, natural fibers and luxurious blends for every CIARA SILKE scarf. Our fabrics have been extensively tested to ensure the softest and most sumptuous handle, as well as the most vibrant, long-wearing colour.
We make every effort to ensure you receive the best possible service when using the CIARA SILKE online boutique. If however you are not entirely satisfied with any aspect then please contact Customer Care on email@example.com and we will happily answer any queries you may have.
