The warranty does not cover reverse crocking, damage caused by mold or mildew, improper storage, improper handling, improper maintenance, or any other damage or problem due to external causes unrelated to any product imperfection. Any additional after‐market treatment that is applied after purchase will void the Camira guarantee.

Camira’s warranty will be limited to a refund of the purchase price or replacement of the product with a mutually agreed upon product.
