Returns

Would you like to return an item? No problem at all, here at eKo we aim to ensure that you feel and look great in the unique items that we have sourced for you. We want you to love them, but we know that sometimes it can take a couple of tries for you to find the perfect pieces. Buying clothing and fashion online can be convenient, however, you don’t get to try things on like you would in a retail store and of course, there are times when what you have selected does not fit or suit you. It is our job to help you find those perfect pieces. Anything that you have purchased online that you don’t love can be exchanged or returned, with the exception of sale items. You have 14 calendar days to return any items that you have purchased online. All we ask is that you have not worn, altered or washed the items, that the tags are still attached and that you carefully package it for the return postage. You will need to include proof of purchase. There are no refunds, exchanges or credit notes on sale items. If you return a sale item to us, it will need to be shipped back to you at your own expense. eKo is not responsible for the loss of items being returned, we recommend that you use a traceable delivery method and note down your tracking number.

Sale or Marked Down items that will be staying at the discounted price cannot be returned. Items that have been discounted due to a temporary promotion and will be returning to full price, can be returned.
