Typically, if the tile you ordered is in stock and ready to ship, we’ll ship it from our warehouse within 5 Working Days. 10 business days is the maximum processing time for our warehouse to place the order on a truck to ship out. Once the order is on a truck, transit time ranges from 1-5 business days to transport from our Jaipur, Rajasthan warehouse to various locations across the country. For domestics shipping (within India only) you can expect to receive in stock items within 1-3 weeks of the order being placed and for International Shipping (with the USA or Canada) you can expect to receive in stock items within 10-12 weeks of the order being placedThere are some instances where an item initially states "ships within 5-10 business days" but, when you add the product(s) to your cart, the lead time changes. This happens when you have ordered more material than we have on hand in our warehouse. In these instances your order will draw from our next incoming shipment of said product.Tiles which are made to order typically have 10-12 weeks of production time. We are not able to expedite the production time as each tile is produced by hand one at a time and then requires time to fully cure so they do not break while in transit. After this 10- 12 week period the order will ship from our warehouse and for domestics shipping (within India only) you can expect to receive in stock items within 1-3 weeks of the order being placed and for International Shipping (with the USA or Canada) you can expect to receive in stock items within 10-12 weeks of the order being placed.

Lioness ships orders through a third party shipping company and cannot change the policies held by said company. Failure to schedule a delivery appointment with our shipping company within 72 hours of your order can result in storage fees and/or return shipment and re-delivery costs, for which you’ll be responsible to pay.
Planning ahead for DamageIt is expected that 2%-3% of your tile arrives damaged (chipped or scratched), since our tiles are primarily handmade, hand picked and hand packed exposing the product to breakage, therefore slight surface issues are standard. The best practice is to order at least 10% more than your project requirements to cover allow for these issues, as well as other breakage during installation.Please inspect your delivery for any signs of exterior visible damage. If the order is received and is not neatly shrink wrapped with a cone on top, please notate potential damage on the delivery receipt and contact us within 48 hours.Although extensive damage due to shipping is rare, it does happen occasionally. Please inspect your delivery for any signs of exterior visible damage. If you find visible exterior damage, add notes to the bill of lading immediately, receive your shipment as is and contact us within 48 hours to make your damage claim.Return &Cancellation
