Our website

Please read these terms of use before using our website and placing your order. We aim to update this website frequently, therefore content my change at any time. Products, information, descriptions and images are subject to change or removal without prior notice.

Colours

The coloured paints and primers are bespoke products and are custom-mixed to your specific order.

We make every effort to represent the colours appropriately. Please note that the images shown on our website are subject to variations between computer, table and mobile phone screens and quality, settings and browsers. Colours shown on our website are displayed as guide only. We are not responsible for any colour choice made based off this information.

We always recommend to use the physical colour chart, single swatches or sample pots before purchasing larger quantities.

Although our colour tinting process optimises the consistency of colour, differences within batch tolerance may occur.

Pure & Original paint is produced to the highest standards using natural materials. Colour depth variation is subject to the type of Pure & Original paint and its components, and is subject to individual application methods used.

Always order sufficient paint to complete a job thus avoiding the possibility of batch variations.

Good Practice
Always read and view the information, the technical sheets and application instructions prior to your purchase and use of the products. View and download on www.pure-original.com

If in doubt please contact us. Due to the nature of the artisan and natural origins of the products, components and pigments may separate. This is normal and stirring well mixes the components again. Always stir the paint well before use and application. Always stir paint together from several tins and of the same paint-type and colour to ensure optimised colour consistency. Always check the correct use of products and the colour of the paint before application. We are not liable for any cost incurred as a result of application or surface conditions and preparation. Not every type of surface with its appropriate preparation can be included in the information given on the product packaging, brochures, website and other information tools. The execution of preparation, application and the selection of colours and use of products is the sole responsibility of the customer, since this is beyond our control. If you wish to store your purchase: keep it in its original packaging, unopened and store in dry and frost free conditions (5-25˚Celsius). Can be stored 10-12 months.

Important: We do everything we can to meet the delivery lead times but these lead times cannot be guaranteed. Therefore we recommend not to arrange for labour to apply the products until they are in your possession. We cannot be held responsible should labour have to be re-scheduled because our goods are not present at your home or project-site.
