Exchange & Return Policy

Please take notice of the fact that since most of our products are handcrafted, we usually have only a couple of pieces in stock. And because every product is crafted with care by our skilled artisans, it is not possible for us to offer cancellations, returns and exchanges unless there is a fault from our end like a major issue in the quality or wrong product shipment. 


  • You may cancel your order within 48 hours of booking for handloom products and for powerloom before it has been shipped, provided that no tassels and/or fall pico have been added to your request. Should you cancel your order, you will receive a credit amount equivalent to the value of your order for any subsequent purchase on the website. If hoythread is not able to provide a product,  and you wish a refund instead, any bank/payment gateway processing charges will be borne by you and will be deducted from the total before the refund. 
  • Only unstitched garments (saris, stoles, and dupattas) are eligible for cancellations. Orders for fabrics and apparel/ garments cannot be cancelled.


  • Returns will only be accepted in the case of a manufacturing defect or dispatch of an incorrect item.
  • Apparel/ garments cannot be returned.
