Where is my order being shipped from?

Therefore, most of our shipments are sent direct from our factories in India to you. We also have suppliers elsewhere in the world and locally in the UK. In all cases we include in the pricing all associated import duties and import VAT fees for the United Kingdom which means the price you see on the website is the price you pay. No hidden charges.
