Trans-Ocean warrants our rugs against manufacturing defects and excessive fading (outdoor rugs only) for a one (1) year period from date of original purchase. If rug is found to be defective, Trans-Ocean will repair or replace, at our option, the rug without charge. Warranty claims must be made timely and within the one year period and are based on normal wear and tear. This limited warranty does not include the area rug's serging or fringe and specifically excludes any damage to the area rug caused by normal or extraordinary wear and tear, commercial use, improper maintenance or any damage caused by factors not inherent in the area rug at the time of purchase. Material and manufacturing defects will be determined by an Authorized Inspector.
