Spotlight endeavours to ensure that Products that it manufactures resemble, as closely as possible, any sample shown to Customers. However, each raw material is unique and there may be minor variations in the colour, shade, texture or grain of a sample of fabric, timber or fauxwood when compared with raw materials that Spotlight subsequently uses to manufacture Products. Customers are entitled to compare the sample with the finished Product upon request. Spotlight will only replace Products in cases where any variation between the sample and the Product is significant.
