terms + conditions

Returns + refunds

All domestic customers may request a return or exchange within ten days of purchasing in-store or item delivery. Exchanges are based on product availability and all exchanges will be priced to match the new items listed price.

Restocking fees may be incurred for missing items, missing packaging, or orders of 3 or more when all items are returned for refund. Items that have been worn or adjusted in any way are not eligible for a refund and will be returned to the customer at the next available shipping opportunity.



Because CM products are handmade in a small batch process, you may find that certain items are in high demand and are available for purchase on a pre-order basis only. We request payment in advance to secure your place in line for these objects, guaranteeing shipment upon the release of product. Wait times are dependent on object style and order date.


Price Adjustments

In the event of a sale, should your order be within the return window we are happy to offer a price adjustment. CM honors one-time price adjustments on full-priced items within ten days of purchasing in-store or item delivery. Items must be purchased directly through CM in order to qualify. Items purchased on sale, with a discount code, or during any other promotional period are not eligible for a price adjustment. Objects purchased at a CM sample sale, a CM authorized retailer or through a third party event do not qualify for a price adjustment. Your request for price adjustment must be emailed to hi@commonmaterial.nyc while the sale is active to qualify. All incoming requests received after a sale has ended will not be eligible for a price adjustment. Please note that all iems sold as Final Sale, are as such.
