Our Commitment to Your Satisfaction

At Clay Imports, we prioritize your satisfaction above all else. We take great pride in ensuring that every purchase you make leaves you completely satisfied. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the assistance you need to guarantee a gratifying experience. To protect and inform both parties involved in a purchase, it's crucial to review our policies. This will also enable us to handle any issues that may arise in the most efficient way possible. 

Want to make sure your order is perfect the first time around?
Here are some tips to follow in order to get the most out of your investment in Clay Imports' handmade materials.

When it comes to online shopping, it's always a good idea to take your time and carefully consider your order before completing your purchase. Here are a few reasons why reviewing samples prior to purchasing is important:

    • Ensures product satisfaction: By reviewing samples, you can get a better idea of what the product looks like in real life and whether it meets your expectations. This can help you avoid disappointment and ensure that you're happy with your purchase.
    • Saves time and money: If you receive a product that doesn't meet your expectations, it can be a hassle to return it and get a refund. By reviewing samples beforehand, you can avoid this situation altogether and save yourself time and money in the long run.
    • Helps you make an informed decision: Reviewing samples can give you a better understanding of the product's features and quality. This can help you make an informed decision and choose the product that best fits your needs.

So before making a purchase, take the time to review samples and make sure you're making the right choice for you.


When it comes to purchasing handmade products, it's always a good idea to consult with the experts before placing an order. Our design consultants have years of experience and are always available to help you make the right choices for your needs. Here are some key benefits of consulting with our design consultants:

    • They can guide you through the design process and suggest ideas that you may not have considered
    • They can help you choose the right materials and finishes to ensure that your product looks and performs as you want it to
    • They can provide you with accurate pricing information so that you can make an informed decision about your order

In addition, we always recommend that our customers start with a sample before placing an order. This allows you to see and evaluate the quality of our products before committing to a larger investment. Our goal is to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your purchase, and we believe that this approach is the best way to achieve that goal.


We understand that mistakes can happen, which is why we provide necessary resources to avoid common ordering errors. On our website,, we offer product pages that include size specifications, grout joint recommendations, and a square footage conversion calculator to help you determine exactly how many tiles you need. We highly recommend adding 15-20% overage to your order to ensure that your project runs smoothly without any shortage. Inadequate material ordering can delay your project completion and complicates the artisans production schedule. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee that add-on orders will match, and we are unable to expedite orders in the event that supplies run low.

Don't Panic if You've Made an Ordering Mistake

Our team is ready to assist you if you accidentally make a mistake when placing an order. Simply send us an email with the correct information, and we'll work hard to rectify the situation as soon as possible. Nevertheless, please keep in mind that it's the responsibility of every customer to review their order, guarantee that their measurements are correct, input the correct square footage, and check lead times before making a purchase.

Once our material is installed, we are unable to provide refunds for any dissatisfaction. Therefore, it is required to inspect the material upon receipt to ensure that you are satisfied with the quality. If you have any concerns, please contact us promptly so that we can review the matter prior to installation. This will allow us to find the best possible solution for you, if necessary.

As a general principle, once materials have been installed, the supplier, Clay Imports, cannot be held liable for any issues that arise related to those materials. Reason being, installation can compromise the product's integrity if done incorrectly, and alter the condition it was delivered in. Several factors and steps can affect installation, making it impossible to guarantee the product's performance after it has been installed.
