Photo Warning

We provide the photos on this website to assist you in making a choice of types, categories and collections in which a carpet is offered.

We are proud of the amount of technical information we offer on our website and the depth of that information. However, these photos have the following limitations:

  • Color in the photo may vary from the carpet due to:
    1. Translation and reproduction limitations of photography
    2. Limitations of viewing photos at website resolutions
    3. Limitations and/or variations of viewing photos on your individual monitor with its variable color and/or resolution scheme

Color change will vary from the photo in terms of the amount of change that will occur. This is due to the specific conditions at your installation site, resulting in either lesser or greater color changes than the ones we have created in our test for the color change photo.

Texture & size variations will be, for the same reasons as listed above for grade photos, greater than that shown in the photos.

 

Responsibility Limitations

Given the limitations of photography, coupled with the nature of the carpet and its variability, Abbas Corporation (Pvt.) Ltd. shall NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE for variation from the photos and videos on this website found in the actual carpet you receive, including but not limited to:

  1. Color variation
  2. Texture variation
  3. Size variation

 

ONCE YOU PURCHASE THE CARPET, YOU HAVE DEEMED IT ACCEPTABLE, AND NO FURTHER CLAIMS CONCERNING VISIBLE ISSUES SHALL BE ENTERTAINED.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO INSPECT THE CARPET PRIOR TO PURCHASING AND TO COMMUNICATE WITH ABBAS CORPORATION (PVT.) LTD. TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE IS COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH REGARD TO COLOR, SIZE, TEXTURE AND/OR GRADE ISSUES.
